No need to travel to Uganda for criminalization of homosexuality. No Sir, here in Texas we have our own homegrown homohaters.

That’s right, the good ol’ Texan GOP released their most recent policy platform. Guess what? It’s anti-gay. Big suprise, I know. But year after year somehow I just have to gawk at how unflinchingly stubborn-to-the-point-of-delusion this document is. A couple highlights:

– Gay marriage? No, let’s not streamline our message to hold ground against the inevitable sea change supported by increasing majorities of Americans. Let’s not even try to push some insulting less-than-marriage compromise. Let’s just go ahead and make issuing marriage licenses to queers or performing such a ceremony a felony. Our prisons just aren’t gay enough.

– Sexually oriented businesses? Banned. Morning After Pill? Gone. Pornography? Oh you better believe that’s banned. Hand over that internet mister!

– What ever happened to that sodomy ban we use to have? We miss it.

Christian talk show host Linda Harvey says that the US should stay out of Uganda and its laws criminalizing homosexuality. Harvey says the laws are intended to keep “Western homosexuals” from exploiting Uganda children by supporting sex trafficking. Oh, and she says the Westboro Baptist Church is funded by “the gays.”  Please give me some time to wrap my brain around that idea…….For the full story click here

“American Evangelicals are apparently shocked that their anti-gay activism in Uganda — which mostly involves telling Ugandans that gay men sodomize boys and that homosexuals have a nefarious plot to destroy society as we know it — has actually been taken seriously by Ugandans, who, in order to stop purported child rape and total social annihilation, have bandied about the idea of executing gay people.” Read the rest of the story at Femeniste

Death Penalty still on for Uganda

Looks like Rachel can keep calling it the “Kill the Gays” bill…

(From the Guardian) “(David Bahati, the bill’s main sponsor) denied reports that international pressure might result in parts of the bill being toned down.” Read more

“For Ugandans such as Pastor Martin Ssempa, who organises anti-gay rallies, the bill brings legitimate moral force to bear on the “corrupting influence” from western societies.” Which is ironic, considering the heavy American influence behind anti-gay events in Uganda and the drafting of this bill. It’s also curious that the “international pressure” they’re now choosing to ignore is coming from the same place.

Uganda Update

Posted in Legal, LGBT Rights, News, Religion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2009 by Chase

The death penalty and life imprisonment privisions have been dropped from Uganda’s upcoming anti-gay legislation.

Still included in the bill are jail sentences for being openly gay (gay sex is already criminalized), peacefully speaking, assembling, or advocating on behalf of homosexuals, and failing to notify the government of a friend/coworker/family member who is homosexual.

Rachel Maddow continues to cover the links between Christian fundamentalists in America and this disturbing legislation.

Additionally, Pastor Rick Warren has finally joined the public opposition for this bill.
