Uganda Holds Off On "Kill The Gays" Bill

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLGBT


This whole situation hurts every piece of our hearts. We can't believe that a bill like this could even be proposed in the world today.

Uganda backtracked on a disparaging bill proposed that would, in effect, punish homosexual citizens even more brutally than previous laws already established. Thankfully, the bill was deemed redundant by the President's administration, and thus it was shelved. However, there are many still in the country's government who feel fervently that the bill should be passed as they insist that the bill would act as a more “specific and clear” law, with more "befitting" penalties like execution for “aggravated homosexuality.”

There are no words. This is beyond disheartening, beyond immoral. It is the very definition of intolerable.

We wish our government should a bit more interest in this issue and took a proud stance against these sort of practices. It's the least we can do to give a voice to those in the country who are forced to live in a constant state of fear.

Our thoughts go out to all those who are suffering because of this injustice.

    If only we could deport Shirley Phelps and all her Westboro Baptist friends. They could all live very happily together in Uganda.

    It must be horrible for gays there and in Arab countries.I feel sorry for them.I know some from Arabic countries and its so hard for them.
    I hope they'll establish democracies eventually.

    What I've learned over the years is that people who call other people f**gots are usually closetcases in denial. That's why it's called homophobia. They're afraid of what they are…or what they might be.

    Talia88 ~ people who call other people f**gots are usually closetcases in denial. WHAT? That doesn't even make sense. You sure talk stupid. Anyway, inserting a peen in an anus is not a sex act, it is avoidance of the sex act. Duh. Psychology 101. That's why they don't want the crazies running around sticking it to any old arsehole. That's how aids was born. Homosexuals are often pedophiles as well, since these acts flow from inferior brain functioning.

    Right, it is really sad… but the next time you go and bitch about how 'unequal' things are here in America, maybe you should take a second to realize what other countries are going through. A lot of lost lives because of severe punishment for being homosexual in other countries… you need to appreciate what we DO have here… you often take it for granted and you really shouldn't… you find something new all the time that you just don't like here, then you just bitch, bitch, and bitch. You don't contribute to society really at all either, but somehow you have the full right to keep complaining at how unfair this country really is… well from the looks of it, gays walk freely and are becoming more celebrated every day. That is a HUGE accomplishment. Yet, it's still not good enough for you. Does everyone need to be gay, to make you feel better once and for all?

    I wish Uganda's homosexuals the best of luck through this… what a sad, sad thing…

  11. 11

    You want our government to step in in Uganda, and I want it to stay the hell out and mind its own business. Yeah, gays have it tough in the middle east. If you're so concerned, PEREZ, get your ass over there and do some activism and some press. Try your militant "love and accept the gay" act over there and see what happens. You're damned lucky you have the tolerance here that you do and NO, I don't give a shit that Europe is more accepting of a deviant lifestyle. If you're so touched and so worried, go save the gays in Uganda instead of doing nothing but blogging about your poor broken heart in the safety of your comfy home in the U.S. Put up or shut up.

    Re: UstinkA – Wow! Were you born that way or did you catch it from a toilet seat? You know nothing about what you're talking about. Truly the dumbest thing I've ever read here. Get educated. Open a book. Keep your bizarre anti-gay fears to yourself.

  13. 13

    This IS bad, but it's not surprising for Africa!! My husband is Zimbabwean, and there are TONS of injustices against EVERYONE because of these "Leaders".

  14. 14

    There are a lot worse things happening in the world today.

    Calm down the bill wont pass no matter how much Ugandans and their government want it. It has already been established that foreign aid and food supplys will be cut if they continue with that shit. The swiss government gave them a threat before and they will do it again

    Re: NookiesWA – your a f'n loser… How do people being gay hurt you in anyway? How do they distrupt your life at all? There is nothing you can say further that would justify your statement of direct hate towards people who make a decision to live they way they choose!

  21. 21

    "We wish our government should a bit more interest in this issue" Perez, doesn't our country spend enough time, assets and effort on other countries? We need to clean up our own back yard before getting involved so much in OTHER countries' problems!

    Re: SkipperBarbie – In most arabic countries where Islam is law it wont matter if they establish any democracy, since the Islam law it always goes ahead of the civil/government ones no matter what unlike western countries where the government laws go ahead the religious ones.

    They're 50 years behind other countries on social issues. Fear and ignorance is not the best platform to form policy from. Education is. IMO, Tolerance and live and let live acceptance will only come as Uganda progresses into the world business/trade community, so it will be a while. Their very best young will go abroad to become educated and enlightened, and return home to eventually rule and pull Uganda into the 21st century. Education is key.

    Re: NookiesWA – You're such a troll, and the things you type come from hate.

    If the gays didn't whine about every hardship they endure, I would sympathize. Try living as a real minority you hetero-phobes.

    this is sad. I will pray.

    it is 100% right, gay people should not be allowed to go on spreading fucking HIV amongst the world. its disgusting to even think that there are lo

  32. 32

    gay people should be sent into space with just enough oxygen to give them time to realize that they are all going to die a horrible death !!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

    PEREZ, you work SOOO hard. I'd like to offer you an ALL EXPENSE paid vacation in UGANDA! ;-)

  36. 36

    from what has always been said, the beginning of time started with Adam and Eve, not Adam and Adam. Gay if not right, nor should it be tolerated in any country. men are meant to be with women, not together FUCK. Sorry perez, but your a disgrace of life. an absolute waste of oxygen.

    If anything, all gays should be sent to africa, so the HIV can stay where it originated from.

  37. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: NookiesWA – See, THAT"S what makes you a troll. Instead of your going to a like minded website such as maybe, the Klan, you instead come here and stir shiz on a website that might have more than a usual amount of gays contributing. Why? In denial? Not out of the closet yet? Ah, well. Sometimes you do come out with some golden truths on other topics in spite of yourself, and you do have your opinion; and that opinion, when it comes to gays is always a shining example of just how stupid hate looks on paper, so carry on.

  38. 38

    i'm really sorry for all my mean and negative comment, i did not mean any of them. i just find it hard to accept myself as a gay and therefore say hurtful things about them. i have been in a gay relationship for 3 years now and still have not admitted to anyone that i am in fact gay, until now. again, im sorry for my comments.

  39. 39

    Re: @v@ – you are right, i am gay and love it up the bum. sorry

  40. 40

    just to say, the last comments from my name, were not me. left my accoutn open, SORRY. i do hate fkn gay ppl and wish them the worst. just clearifying so there is not confusion. FUCK THE GAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. 41

    Re: @v@ – Ok, You gay peeps really need to have better comebacks.

    "You diss gays so you must be gay"

    Ok, I'm going to say this once in caps and hopefully it gets through to you. THAT IS THE WORST MOST STUPIDEST ARGUMENT YOU CAN POSSIBLE SAY. It makes zero sense at all. It also just adds to my "Gay people are dumb idiots" argument. So saying something very stupid like that is not helping your case AT ALL…9/10 gays in the public eye are normally idiotic obnoxious eccentric queens..I mean they don't help your case any better. Perez Hilton..LOL, Elton John, That queen that created glee…Ellen Degeneres is the only one that doesn't annoy me.

    Being gay is not normal. Its a genetic DEFECT. It's very simple and can't be argued. So they should be dealt with..

    I mean if you were a girl and wanted to have a baby via artificial insemination and you were to "shop" around for man goo. You wouldn't want the male that has a history with genetic health problems would ya? Or maybe going blind/gray at an early age? I'm thinking not.

  42. 42

    Re: La Garse – I always enjoy reading your comments when it comes to Perez & his opinions. Agreed!

  43. 43

    I'm proud of our country and grateful for the freedom we have. I'm sure most people here who don't quite believe in freedom the same way will at least be more eager to distance themselves from the intolerance and bigotry found in dictatorships and less-educated countries like this.

  44. 44

    There sure are some intolerant people here. This post is about a law punishing people for being different… And yet a lot of people here just take everything back to themselves…
    Wake up! It's sad what's happening there. Although, I agree, Perez should use his status and the media to help gays there. Wasn't it Peter Parker's uncle who said: With great power comes great responsability.. ?
    And no, I don't actually think that people who hate gays ARE acutally gay. They just are uneducated and intolerant.
    I'm not homophobic or racist. I couldn't care less if some guy like other's guy's junk. Or if some girl likes another girl's nana.
    But injustice is not something that people should make fun of or encourage…
    Shout out here to the ignorant ones.

    I work in Africa and the people are sooooooooo good.

    They are brainwashed by the extreme christians they come in from other nations. It's brainwashing. "for real".

  46. 46

    It is not just Christianity that is so influential there and in this regard. It is also Islamic teachings. I think you should be more worried about these people than Christians.

    According to the International Lesbian and Gay Association ILGA there are at least seven countries today which still retain capital punishment for homosexuality. All are predominately Muslim countries. They are: Afghanistan, Iran, Mauritania, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Yemen.

    Re: NookiesWA – Pssst. What on earth are you going on about? I'm not gay. Not the least little teeny tiny bit. There goes part of your 'all gays are idiots' argument. The surest way to make people know you are an idiot is to open your mouth and prove it.

  48. 48

    Scott Mills for the BBC did a very good documentary about this earlier in the year - It's shocking to think there's still things like this happening in the world today.

  49. 49

    They should buttfuck them all to death.

  50. 50

    I can not believe how hateful some of you people are. Trying to justify that it's okay to get rid of all the gays because they are 'spreading HIV' and trying to back it up with Christian views. First off, HIV is spread through other ways - sharing needles, HETERO unprotected sex (gasp! ever thought of that one!?), accidental contact with blood or open wounds of an infected person, etc. Open a book once in a while before you go spewing your hateful words.

  51. 51

    Secondly, to back it up with Christian views is completely hypocritical. I am a Christian woman and I am disgusted at some people who call themselves Christian yet are trying to justify the idea of a 'kill the gays' bill. You think God will be judging the gay people when you don't realize He will be judging YOU for being intolerant and spreading hate. Does He not say to Love your neighbor as thyself? Doesn't the Bible say To not judge others, for the Father is the only one who can judge anyone? Does it not preach that love for others is what we should all strive to achieve? And that you should never ever kill or hurt anyone?? I am not usually one to get all preachy, but come on, to all you "Christians" out there, wake up and realize how hypocritical you are being. Just LOVE people for who they are.

  52. 52

    I am sick with what our society has become. So many hateful comments on here. The fact that people would actually support such a law in any country is absolutely horrific. To all you homophobes - What would you do if when you have a child, he or she is gay?? Are you not going to love them??? Put things into perspective; you may disagree with it, which everyone is entitled to their opinions, but no one has a right to hate anybody - that is why our world is in such shambles today. Imagine if everyone just loved one another, what a better place this would be. So back to my point, would you hate your own child?? Would you tell your child to "move to Uganda", or that all gays need to be "eradicated" just like your are saying to Perez?? I sure hope not. Take a look at yourself. All you hateful people are the REAL problems in this world.

  53. 53

    You all need to take a step back and put things in perspective. There are so many other terrible things happening in Uganda that they don't even have time to consider their punishments for homosexuals. I'm not saying that what they're doing is ok, because its not. I'm just saying that you need to look at the bigger picture and see that Uganda has been suffering from the longest running war in Africa. For the past 25 years, a rebel group called the LRA has been abducting children to fight as soldiers. Millions of people have died at the hands of the LRA, many of those hands belonging to children. The children are brain washed and forced to kill. The girls are sold as sex slaves. Hundreds of thousands of children have been killed by the LRA Uganda is trying to get their children back from these monsters, and if that means this gay rights bill needs to take a back seat, so be it.

  54. 54

    Re: La Garse – Thank You, It's nice to know not everyone on this site is retarded.

  55. 55

    Being gay is a perversion of humanity like pedophilia, it also is anti humanity in the fact that gays cannot reproduce the way they were designed to, so I could see how someone could say being gay is evil because satanism is anti humanity.

  56. 56

    It's sad that ANYONE should feel the need to kill ANYONE. Whether being gay is right or not, I don't know, but I do know that there is seriously something wrong with the world when people are continually feeling the need to kill any group of people for no reason other than the fact that they are what they are. Sad times. Living for a day when people stop killing eachother of this stupid stuff :(
