I don't think murder is good way to solve a problem but you people who advocate a global policy in the name of Human Rights that dictates to another
culture the type of laws they can and cannot adopt, scares the Hell out of me. You might as well call yourself Hitler, Global Dictator. This attitude
is whats wrong with the world - seeking to control someone else and force YOUR belief system on another culture. I don't care that's it's to " Save
Lives via Human Rights" That's just as wrong to dictate globally as someone who wants to dictate global murder.
You people are going to flame me for that but your not getting the point. What right does anyone have to force their views on other cultures?
Absolutely NONE. If a culture agrees to something for it's people - no matter how your view causes you to disagree, it's still their right to choose
and you have no business interfering.
You bitch when the Muslims come into the USA and seek to institute their own law instead of following the laws of the USA. See, you don't like things
being dictated to you - why force your view on someone else?
You speak of intolerance for gays yet you are intolerant of other cultures beliefs. Double standard hypocrites. You are the last people anyone
should listen to.
I have nothing against dissuading them from such a course of action perhaps we Should try and they Should do something different, but your way by
global mandate is just as bad. The minute you start to make such global policies is the minute you kill cultures, belief systems setting yourselves up
as God - oh wait, the Powers That Be are already trying to do this with a global government.. Gee.. I sure hope when it happens you agree with
everything they force you to do and remember, you can't bitch, moan or complain about it if you disagree.
Over the last so many decades, many African nations have been propped-up by the West in many ways to help them join the global table, develop their
economies and so on. Prior to that, their relationship with the West has meant that they've gone from relatively technologically primitive culture to
industrialisation. It's also seen the import of the Christian religion. What culture and beliefs are being impacted here? It seems to be that Africa,
by and large, and voluntarily are aiming for what what the West has - including Western money through development aid and through trade &c. A lot of
African traditional beliefs and values are pretty much frowned-upon, in fact, folk beliefs will now pretty much get you executed in many places thanks
to the zealotry that the imported Christianity has.
Also, the argument that it's their decision to treat homosexuals this way is pretty much flawed to begin with. Voting fraud is systemic across much of
Africa and is a major concern for neutral observers. Even if voting was 'fair', then 'democracy' is pretty much forcing one set of beliefs on another
anyway, it's just a case of one demographic being larger than the other at any particular time. You only have to look at American elections to see how
this works and how completely polarised views can be imposed on others.
If African countries like this want to sit with the rest of the world at the grown-ups table, they need to start acting like grown-ups. Grown-ups
don't kill people based on their sexual orientation.
