    BBC News - Malawi to overturn homosexual ban, Joyce Banda says

    President Joyce Banda has said she wants Malawi to overturn its ban on homosexual acts - the first African country to do so since 1994.

    Two Malawian men were sentenced to 14 years in prison in 2010 after saying they were getting married.

    They're just trying to get U.S. aid.

    Seems like a good thing to me. Homosexual acts between consenting adults should not be banned by law. But it's up to the Malawi Parliament to decide I guess.
