    Seems like the article disappeared. The link is dead, and looking at the Africa section of TWP I can't see the thing either.

    Call me an ostrich, but I don't advocate posting this stuff up. I think it only serves their purpose

    I totally disagree. We can't just ignore it. If a country was practicing genocide, would you say that we should just ignore it...like it will go away if we ignore it?

    Besides being outraged by the story, ROLLING STONE magazine should sue the hell out of the newspaper for using their name. It's just shocking that parts of the world are so barbaric.

    We ignored it in Rwanda and we all know how that ended.

    But why would it serve their purpose? It's not like we're posting this at the door of your local church, giving them some ideas.

    Like seriously, there aren't many things that make my stomach turn, but this was one of them. What a bunch of fucking monkeys in that country. And the WORST part is that the people who gave them the idea for this were American missionaries. Absolutely shameful.

    It's not genocide, unfortunately its the people themselves that are fueling the problem. In this case it is the media.

    My point is that there is only so much the global community can do and further publication of these scummy newspaper articles only helps their cause. Their business is all about negative publicity and public fear. It's like Fred Phelp's, the amount of free publicity that man and his 'church' got coutesy of us is shameful, and what good did it do? The world will always be full of these people.

    Tell me, what are YOU going to do about this?

    You think a lot of Ugandan anti gay activists read RJ and are likely to get ideas?

    I mean it serves their purpose by spreading the hatred,

    What about the 14 year old gay teen who reads this, less secure than you or I, and goes off feeling shit about himself.

    Don't we have enough negativity in the world

    From the article...The paper's managing editor, Giles Muhame, said the article was "in the public interest."

    "We felt there was need for society to know that such characters exist amongst them. Some of them recruit young children into homosexuality, which is bad and need to be exposed," he said. "They take advantage of poverty to recruit Ugandans. In brief we did so because homosexuality is illegal, unacceptable and insults our traditional lifestyle.


    Again and again, in our own country and elsewhere, we see this absurd myth repeated: that we gays "recruit young children into homosexuality." As if such a thing were even possible. To me this sounds exactly like the once-popular "Blood Libel", the claim that Jews drink the blood of young Christians. The only difference is that it is no longer acceptable (in most places) to say such things about Jews. But gays are still fair game. icon_sad.gif

    Note that the Ugandans weren't being mean to their gays as much until the U.S. religious right wing nuts got their hate agenda going there.

    False belief systems in the U.S. need to be throttled in. They collect money, tax free, for promoting hate and intolerance, here, and elsewhere, in places like Uganda. It's wrong, and the religious nuts need to be held accountable for it. Just because they do it under the guise of a false belief system doesn't mean it's not wrong. It's HATE, and it preys upon the backs of the ignorant folks who subscribe to false belief systems and IT'S WRONG.

    It's sickening, what false belief systems try to pull off.

    " It's like Fred Phelp's, the amount of free publicity that man and his 'church' got coutesy of us is shameful, and what good did it do? "

    Fred's free publicity has exposed him as the lunatic that he is.
    This exposure of the RightWing AntiGay Madness has brought our gay community more allies in the hetero community than any number of public service(HRC-type) ads we could have bought.

    Our best strategy is to bring as ATTENTION to the Hate.......whether in Uganda.....Iran........ Utah or Kansas.

    I joined, and posted a message with my "Eat Da Poo Poo" remix, as Dr. Martin Ssempa of Uganda so eloquently assumes all homosexuals practice in.

The world will always be full of these people.

    The leader of Uganda, under WORLD PUBLIC PRESSURE, stopped pursuing the death penalty for homosexuality. This happened shortly after Martin Ssempa's hate speech from the Missions of Hate documentary got millions of YouTube views. This is completely contrary to your unsupported theory.

    So yes you myopic fucking retard, proliferating this shit bring pro-gay reinforcement and pressure. This isn't just some business getting attention. How the flying FUCK do you think gay people won support in the United States?!? By silently whispering that they wanted gay rights to their neighbors and ignoring the Orange Juice cunt Anita Bryant from Florida in the late 1970s? If everyone was as apathetic as you, these homophobes would be able to legislate murdering you, because no one would come to your defense to put them in check. Yes, these people will exist, but because of increasing efforts from the opposite site, they can't do as much damage with their beliefs.



    Thisuserexists saidThe world will always be full of apathetic people like myself who don't care about these people.
    Tell me, what are YOU am I going to do about this? Nothing.

    Fixed for accuracy.
