A Ugandan court is expected to rule Friday on a petition by activists who say the East African countrys new anti-gay measure is invalid because it was passed during a parliamentary session that lacked quorum.
If the panel of judges on Ugandas Constitutional Court agrees, the whole law could be jettisoned. If no, then the judges will continue to hear the activists argument that the law is unconstitutional.

If it wasn’t passed legally, it wasn’t passed legally. So be it. One impressive thing I’ve seen from the Ugandans is that they refuse to be cowed by the pro-sodomite crowd. I wish our own politicians had that level of courage in dealing with them.
If the court nullifies the law because it wasn’t legitimately passed, I would wager that the “Anti-Homosexuality Law of 2014” will be in front of their parliament (with a proper quorum) within hours of the decision.
Perhaps there was a reason there was not a quorum in the legislature to pass the law the first time. Undue harassment from homosexual activists? It’s conceivable. These barbarians know no limits of restraint on their violent tactics.
So they may throw it out on grounds of its passage. Whoop de doo, they’ll just pass it again. These nations don’t like being manipulated by leftists in far-flung countries.
