Britain Vows To Cut Aid For African Countries That Persecute Gays!

britain to stop aiding african countries that persecute gays

This is what we like to hear!

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that the UK will be drastically cutting aid to ALL African countries that persecute gays.

Thus far, Britain's International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell has cut Malawi's aid by £19 million for the country's persecution against two gay men, who were sentenced to fourteen years of hard labor. Fortunately, the men have now been freed.

In an effort to further support Prime Minister Cameron, Andrew Mitchell has also threatened to "impose further aid 'fines' against Uganda and Ghana for hardline anti-gay and lesbian measures."

Here's what a spokesperson for Mitchell had to say about it:

"The Government is committed to combating violence and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in all circumstances, in this country and abroad. We take action where we have concerns."

"We now allocate funds every three months, rather than every year, so that we can review a country's performance, for example on human rights, and take swift action when governments fall short. We only provide aid directly to governments when we are satisfied that they share our commitments to reduce poverty and respect human rights."

This is a MAJOR step in the right direction. We truly hope that David Cameron's new policy will convince anti-gay African countries to rethink their hateful practices.

    Cutting aid, isn't going to change their beliefs. No matter how despicable some peoples beliefs are, I don't think they should be punished for it.

  2. 2

    "What we life to hear?"

    You do realize that while the government is what is the driving force behind the wrongful persecutions, that they will likely be among the lasts to suffer? The aid is to help the citizens of those nations. THEY are going to be the ones suffering while their governments will likely to continue their hateful and disgusting actions out of rebellion or spite than anything else at this point. It's sad that it's come to this, but the "little people" are going to be the ones hit the hardest if this happens. What's equal about that?

  3. 3

    and yes. I believe in EQUALITY for ALL! but I'm not about to judge people for having beliefs that differ from mine. Everyone has their own opinion, and should not be judged on that opinion.

  4. 4

    I think it is good that they are cutting some of the foreign aid, not for this reason but because the UK is swimming in debt right now and they need to focus on their own country.
    Also, this isn't going to change any of the people's beliefs. If anything they will just stop persecuting the gays so they can get their money. Homosexuals are still going to be just as hated in these countries and this change isn't going to be fueled by anything but greed.

  5. 5

    So sad…. They should have announced that they were raising funds to continue to support these countries that stand up for what is RIGHT and MORAL.

    Bravo Britain!
    All Western countries should follow Britain's lead!

    How can a country that is in defecit give aid to African countries? The money they give is borrowed money. So they borrow money to give it aweay and then tax its people to death to recoup it. This is why the planet is in such a mess.

  9. 9

    Why do ANY western countries give aid to African one?!?!?! First of all we are all suffering from MAJOR debt, secondly African PEOPLE and African countries look at Western civilizations with hate. STOP ALL AID PERIOD! They live on a continent with MORE natural resources than any other, they shoulld be able to produce/manufacture all their good with NO HELP. Ugh disgusting.

    The UK financial situation is dire, and this is just a move by Cameron to cut spending and appeal to the liberal population, because he knows everyone in the country hates him.
    Re: KeeperOfEdwardsSexuality – It's not about differing beliefs - it's about persecuting people for being gay. It's appalling that people are being jailed simply for their sexual preference. They're consenting adults, not paedophiles or rapists. Would you think it's appropriate for people of differing religions to be jailed?

  11. 11

    "Equal rights for all". So I guess that means you think peadophiles, hebephiles, polygamists and zoophiles etc should have access to equal rights too, huh?

  12. 12

    Wow you have no concept of global economics. Yes Africa is theoretically a highly cultivatable contintent in general but factors such as cash crops, corrupt government and lack of capital make it virtually impossible for them to develop their economies further. You think they like living in poverty? Fool.Re: Laroccakiddd

  13. 13

    Whycantileavecomment, I am no fool and I know a lot about global economics. Why are Western Countries responsible for aiding African ones when they ARE CAPABLE of taking care of themselves??? They have higher natural resources and BOOMING populations. They are more than able to produce/manufacture their own goods. No one helped Western/Asian countries in developing. Also ALL the aid that has been sent over there has done no good, they still live in poverty and despair. You can't help people who can't help themselves.

  14. 14

    thats right youcan give all that money to the islamics that are over running the country

  15. 15

    Re: MarioMonjack – you're a goddamn idiot.

  16. 16

    Gays will still be beaten and killed in these countries. You just wont hear about it because it will be done unofficially. Theyll make more of an effort to hush it all up thats all. They have sick medieval thinking.

    Mr. David please go to hell with your so called aid. The greece people are broke and am sure their buttocks are ready for your exchange. Total nonsense. don't you ever suggest that idea to us.

    I have nothing against gays and lesbians, what they do are their choice; but what I hate is the hypocrisy and arrogance of the western countries to export and dictate their morality on others.

    They will say hell no to polygamy; they actually have laws against that whereas we Africans welcome the practice. These people will not tolerate any push by us to force them to accept polygamy but the same have the nerve to export their morality to us, when they themselves have only recently come to accept gay lifestyle.

    It is only fair to tell them that just as they took so many years to arrive at that decision point to accept gays amongst them, so should they allow us to evolve our decision process. One cannot force an idea or practice on a people which time and acceptance has not culturally arrived.

    Let them keep their tied-aid, we should also find means to hit them back in equal measure by withholding something they want from us. Nkwaseansem!!!.

    If Britain needs more gay and lesbian, let Cameron issue them visa's so they can go to Britain and practice their gay bullshit…When people in Africa are dying of hunger, deseases etc due to world capitalism, suddenly the gay agenda(a minority) becomes a priority more than anything else. I think Cameron has been getting with with Nick secretly no doubt. Hey Britain, money is not everything, keep your money and let keep our values. Mind you the aid money only benefit African leader and their cohorts and families not us ordinary people, it has not impact on us what so ever so take you aid money David. Now we know, the Freemason are here to push their evil agenda. It is man an woman, not man and man or woman and woman: Bride and groom. Marriage? Why do gays want the name marriage is beyound me. Yet they don't believe in the gospel but want the beneficial of the gospel. Hypocracy at the highest level. Senseless people. dummy prime minister.

    Look, David is just intimidating the weak African leaders to buy his idea of queerrrrrness! Will Cameron be able to tell Islamic countries(or are there no gay people among the muslim fraternity) who are also at the receiving end of the aid money, not to persecute gayism and be remove homophobia? He knows that cannot happen so you see what i;m talking about? How about this David Cameron? Charter flights and ships to Africa and collect all those gay and lesbians to fill up Britain if you are hell bent on getting more homosexuals in your society, because in a country like Ghana (though you are entitled to your opinion) your ideologies about sexuality will not sell or be bought. Now you are thought of as a Satanic manipuler when we all thought during the election you are a christian. You only identified with christianity just to get the mandate of the people however i am sorry to say you are evil minded and posterity will judge you. If your ancestors were homosexuals you would have no chance of being born and here to suddenly preach to us a new sort of sexuality needing promotion. One more message, tell your british homosexuals folks and priests (who use the name of God for their benefit but cannot represent the ideals of faith and the body of Christ) that we will surrender our beliefs and values to some sort of fantasical world of deflated sexuality aside the one that we know of. May God keep the true christians in the british society in the face persecution and demonic soceity.

    so those who have nothing to do with this have to suffer more? Where was Britain when Rowand genocide was happening where is Britain now with Dafu? I don't hear anything about that. Maybe they should make a big media fenzy about that.

    Re: KeeperOfEdwardsSexuality – Money from our country shouldn't go to ANY country who persecutes, beats, tortures, kills or imprisons any group just because of WHO THEY ARE. If you knew that your money was going to someone to be used to hurt another person would you give them the money ?

  24. 24

    Re: Laroccakiddd – Well you clearly don't or else you wouldn't have made that remark or held those beliefs. And Eastern European and Asian countries (you again show your unintelligence as I assume you're referring to East/Southeast Asia- South Asia is a large receiver of international aid) also receive a large amount of aid, although admittedly not as much as African countries, nor as much as they deserve.

    Britain is using this to dissuade Uganda from instituting homosexuality as punishable by death (i.e. Kill The Gays Bill). When people would be killed for being homosexual, or even being speculated homosexuaal…yeah this seems like an appropriate threat. It's already illegal to be in a same-sex relationship there (which is punishable by something like 14 years of jail time), so why would Britain continue aiding a country that is willing to kill its own people over sexual orientation?
