CuriousJockAZ saidThis truly sickens me. The idea that human beings can be so barbaric on other humans -- not to mention dead ones -- is horrifying. I wish the U.S. would cut off any and all aid to these barbaric regimes.
at the stuff in red!
But innocent people should not suffer for the sins of the guilty. Not everyone in Senegal hates and tortures gays.
That said, this is sad. I hope that the gay haters in Senegal and elsewhere learn the truth quickly.
Innocent people are suffering anyway. These crooked barbaric regimes steal the aid we send those countries anyway and hardly any of it even reaches the poor innocent people.
Have you ever taken your comfort-addicted self to the parts of these countries where the poor, innocent people live? Do you know, for certain, how much aid reaches these poor, innocent people?
To both questions, I think your answer would be "no."
And here's another thing: Don't think--for a second--that the crooked barbarism of these regimes is solely attributable to their governments. Their former colonizers are still causing trouble because of self-interest.
