    The Ugandan parliament passed a law that will give openly homosexuals individuals a life
    in prison sentence if caught by the Ugandan Police authorities. The previous bill was calling for a death sentence for homosexual acts, but was now negotiated down to a life
    sentence for any homosexual acts, and penalties for anyone who does not report homosexuals to the Police authorities.

    The bill is now waiting for the President of Uganda signature. Uganda says that pro homosexual groups from outside the country have been pressing certain members
    of the Ugandan government to legalize homosexuality, but they were rebuffed by
    many political and religious activist in Uganda, who see homosexuality as Satanic,
    and something evil that is being promoted by elements from the Europe and America.

    In some countries such as Iran, you can receive a death penalty for homosexual acts.
    Many homosexual men hate women, so I don't think a womens ward would be a good idea.

    American right wingers going to Africa and teaching those people to fear gays. Telling them that gays "turn" their children. That's what's behind the hate. This has been going on for years.
    Not only that, if you know someone who is gay and didn't "turn them in", you could go to jail yourself. Republicans and right wingers haven't been able to spread such hatred here, but they have been very successful in Uganda. I'm sure they are still trying. Republicans hate gays more than Muslims or blacks.

    yes rdean. Clearly the Uganda law is based solely on Americans who hate gays going there to persuade them to outlaw it.

    There is no way their actual culture has anything to do with it. It's all the fault of your political enemies. We are every where, rdean. Fear us

    I don't think fear or hatred has anything to do with the Ugandans passing this law. I think
    that there is a certain "blow back" effect from all the homosexual marriage hysteria that
    seems to be sweeping across the United States, and Europe , and people in Africa tend
    to be very religious, conservative , and very superstious. They see homosexuality as unnatural and/or evil by its very existence. Passing these laws gives them a sense of
    peace within their society. If you want to practice homosexuality, they are saying go to
    Europe or America.
