In Uganda he could play dictator to his hearts content. A skinnier version of Idi Amin with no pesky Congress or Constitution to bother him.
But pretty please, please take Eric Holder with you, okay Barry.
This is about sex with minors, ie: pederasts or pedophiles. That is more than just a behavior, it's despicable.
The problem with the law is that it is not JUST about sex with minors. It penalizes ALL homosexual activity with life imprisonment, and penalizes “serial” homosexuals (that is, anyone who is convicted of homosexual activity more than once) with death.
But is there anything wrong with Uganda, a sovereign nation, passing laws based on their morals and constitution? Obviously it is not something that would not pass here or in Europe, but I don’t think that gives our government any right to criticize them, especially concidering what we put up with from ‘more important’ countries.
And where was his condemnation of the muzzies who buried that poor girl alive for having male friends??!!
It’s all a matter or priorities. Remember, within hours of an abortion doctor being shot the White House issued a statement of condemnation. On a Sunday. When two soldiers were gunned down by a terrorist in Little Rock the White House were silent for a week then issued a vauge statement of sympathy.
Uganda is well within their rights as a sovereign nation to pass whatever laws they like. I am well within my rights as a free person to say that they are dead wrong. And, the US government is well within its rights as a sovereign nation to say that Uganda is dead wrong. Sovereignty does not render a nation immune to criticism.
You are right about nations not being immune from criticism. I'm just not sure our current government has the moral authority to criticize anyone, especially in such a singular way.
Me, too. Uganda is one of the few truly progressive nations in the world.
Sort of like our nation was doing when it began?
How has legalizing homosexuality made the country better? All it has done is spread disease, depression and early to death to the average participant.
Exactly. In Africa, nearly all HIV infection is spread by heterosexuals.
