President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has refused to sign into law an
anti-gay bill passed by the country’s parliament, which is aimed at
imprisoning not just homosexuals, but people who talk about it
without condemning the lifestyle.

The President in a letter to the Country’s parliament speaker said homosexuals are ‘abnormal’ but could be ‘rescued’ by improving the economy.

“Even with legislation, they will simply go underground and continue practicing homosexuality or lesbianism for mercenary reasons. You cannot call an abnormality an alternative orientation.

It could be that the Western societies, on account of random breeding, have generated many abnormal people.”

The Ugandan parliament passed its anti-gay bill in december 2013 going against the President’s advice and now seeks his assent

The President had initially advised that the homosexuality situation in the country be studied deeply and carefully before any laws against the practice be enacted.

The Ugandan anti-gay bill seeks to make all form of homosexual activities a criminal offense to be punishable under law.

Homosexuals can get as much as a life term imprisonment punishment. Also anyone who knows a homosexual and doesn’t report such to police authorities would also face some sanctions if found wanting.

Well, I’d say thumbs up Mr President but I guess he is just delaying it.

I do hope it is never in place Soviet can go sightseeing there someday.
