    Ahead of the verdict, the two men thanked their supporters, remaining defiant in a statement released through Tatchell.
    In it, Chimbalanga said: "I love Steven so much. If people or the world cannot give me the chance and freedom to continue living with him as my lover, then I am better off to die here in prison. Freedom without him is useless and meaningless."


    What do you say after that? I can merely cry. And this is what gay opponents have in store for us here in the US. We must continue to actively oppose them, or else this will happen to us, too. icon_sad.gif

    Because so much of the country's money comes from interantional donations, i wonder if international pressure could change this?

    With Madona building schools there, I would if she could ask the governenment for a little sanity.

    I especially like that malawi government which receives 40% of it's development budget in international aid says the UN shouldn't meddle in it's internal affairs and not try and restrict them from executing for people for homosexuality as a condition of development aid icon_redface.gif

    You know the funny thing.....Before Christianity, Most african countries use to practice sodomy and then came the Europeans with their christianity belief there preaching that it was a Sin.

    White/Europeans people are very Hyprocite....They spend alsmost a 1,000 years telling people that Gay is wrong through Christianity and Now they want to pressure the world in less than an Hundred years that it's Allright

    I mean you got to be kidding

    Or maybe the Malawis are just really fucking stupid people in general. Same thing happened with India but they just (recently) managed to get rid of their sodomy laws. Either way I appreciate older African religions before white douche bags fucked everything up with their imperialism.
