Death penalty for gays

KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) - "Proposed legislation would impose the death penalty for some gay Ugandans, and their family and friends could face up to seven years in jail if they fail to report them to authorities. Even landlords could be imprisoned for renting to homosexuals.

Gay rights activists say the bill, which has prompted growing international opposition, promotes hatred and could set back efforts to combat HIV/AIDS. They believe the bill is part of a continentwide (sic) backlash because Africa's gay community is becoming more vocal.."

So lemme get this straight...

Curtailing the folks who are most likely to acquire then pass along AIDS could set back efforts to combat the filthy disease...

I see.

Probably exacerbate global warming, too.

Personally don't give a squat about who diddles whom and for what reason as long as it is consenting adults doing the diddle thang but fer chrissake at least TRY to keep it real, mkay?
