Uganda Committee Wants To Keep Death Penalty In Anti-Homosexuality Bill

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikSad SadLGBT

Bahati Gay Death Penalty

This is not good, Uganda.

While we were expecting to hear that the death penalty had been stripped from the anti-homosexuality bill in at least a small step in the right direction, we're hearing that that isn't the case anymore:

According to the report, MP David Bahati, author of the legislation that was first introduced in October 2009, reportedly told the committee that the death penalty could be stripped from the bill. The committee, however, decided to keep the death penalty, by rewording the provision to match the current penal code making "aggravated defilement" punishable by death.

The Ugandan Parliament's Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee will recommend the version of the Anti-Homosexuality bill that retains the death penalty for acts of "aggravated homosexuality."

The committee's report does remove some provisions, but adds criminal penalties for "conducting a marriage ceremony between persons of the same sex."

The bill has been publicly condemned by our State Department and other countries abroad. And of course, we don't support it either. Even if the harshest punishments are removed, the bill itself still remains discriminatory.

Bahati argues that everything is done with the Democratic process, so there can't be anything wrong with it.

Making people fear that their human rights could be viewed as illegal and punishable by death seems like there is everything wrong with it.

We hope there are changes coming for Uganda. They deserve to be whoever they were born to be.

Equality for all!

    Christianity in Uganda plays a part in the hatred of homosexuals.
    One thing you can do is NEVER NEVER buy chocolate from Uganda.

    YES! Finally a country that knows whats up and has the balls to say so. Gays should be eradicated. Uganda just got 10 cool points in my book.

    Re: NookiesWA – many people think bigots should be the first to go before gays, oh right and then there'd be no one hating on another, so no need to off the gays, peace, harmony and equality prevail rather than ignorance and prejudice

  13. 13

    And of course, we don't support it either.

    You rank yourself up there with the State Department ?

    Well, what exactly does 'aggravated' homosexuality mean? Is that an act perpetrated against someone else's will? This article needs some clarity.

    Re: NookiesWA – Your a fat fuck who sits at their computer all day deciding what hurtful comments you can post . no one cares what you think you stupid moron.

  16. 16

    Don't Trust Pretty – I love how gays always say the word "ignorant" while using it as a defense but they aren't even aware that scientifically speaking they are a genetic fuck up. Oh and equality? Gays don't want equality, they want special treatment and attention.

    Watch this documentary called "The World's Worst Place to Be Gay?". It deals with this and is fucking scary! I can't believe this shit happens in this day and age. When will people realize that people are people, love is love, who really gives a shit what gender you prefer?

  26. 26

    Re: blaise05 – Oh yes, the typical overused predictable comeback of a homoqueer. "YOU'RE IGNORANT!!" "Since you hate gays so much you must be gay"

    LOL you're lucky I dont ass rape you but you'd enjoy that eh gayboy

  27. 27

    Re: NookiesWA – actually im not a guy and im not gay. i just hate it when disgusting pigs like you talk smack about people they dont understand. i have a gay friend who is married and they have a son. they are so happy and are just like any other married couple. you should take all that anger that you have and ass rape yourself and then maybe you should just go die because the world dosent need any more hate filled losers like you.

    Re: NookiesWA – I figure you're scared of things that are not like you, are different, and that you don't understand. You're almost completely without empathy as well. I don't even mean support; I mean simple empathy.

    Re: blaise05 – I WILL ASS RAPE YOU.

    Re: NookiesWA – arnt you charming. get some class. you are going to die alone because no one will ever love you because you are so disgusting

    Re: NookiesWA – "They (gays) are a genetic fuckup" and your fat ass staring at a computer all day making silly comments on a GAY website is a genetic triumph…
