    Yes but in Uganda there are LAWS banning and penalizing sodomy. There are no such laws in the U.S. thankfully. And don't forget these laws are also shared in most Muslim countries in the Middle East.

    The pathetically underdeveloped country of Uganda doesn't need the narrow-minded, bible thumping screwballs from the US to advance the horrible anti-gay attitudes. As for laws, Uganda already has the horrible, inhumane sodomy laws on its books. So what is left to advance in terms of bigotry and deep distrust towards gay men.

    "Pathetically underdeveloped"?

    Pathetic implies blame. Little too simple to go at it at like that. The sodomy laws in most Arab countries are no different, as mentioned. Anyone gonna bash the Saudi's for having one of the most disgusting theocracies in the world? Don't think so.

    I personally think the fact that the US is the nursing ground for so much religious hate groups way more disturbing than some underdeveloped, or pathetic if you will, African country that passes some populist sodomy law.

    Wow! Thanks for posting this. I'm blown away. I find it endlessly fascinating. When mental illness meets ignorance. Sad and scary. Watching this was like witnessing what Nazi Germany must've been like. A mass of people following someone who is clearly a lunatic. My heart breaks for Longjohns. What a sweet man. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. By the way, how can anyone take an adult who uses the term "poo poo" seriously? And I've always been perplexed by people who care intensely about what others do in their bedrooms. With all the shitty problems you have to deal with being in a hellhole like Uganda, homosexuality is your biggest concern? Really?

    Only if you go to any religious countries, not only Muslim countries.


    So clearly these people are ass heads and showing PORN in the most extreme degree to insight and provoke the people to cause harm to others.....therefor, I think these religious fanatics are our enemies and should be treated as such and....if possible...defending your self from their bullshit. If they tried to lay one hand on me ever....I will go down with at least 5 of them!!

    It is not that they are ignorant, it is that they are being manipulated. "The Family" has dumped millions into making this happen. Read about them here:

    There are currently no LAWS against sodomy in the U.S. only because the Supreme Court voided all such laws in Lawrence v. Texas (2003).

    It is true that there are several countries with worst records on homosexuality than the U.S. It is also true that the U.S is hardly the most progressive country when it comes to homosexuality/gay rights.

    I happened to catch this on hulu and forwarded it to as many caring and intellectually driven folks that I could find in my contact manager. This is a complete travesty. It is hard not to have contempt for American clergy who insist on demonizing homosexuality and attempting to influence developing countries. It counters the values of our country and implicitly contradicts the tennants of the principles of a democracy.

    Shame on those men. Furthermore, shame on The Ugandan pastor who is suggesting that a bizarre fetish is a common homosexual act and that gay people recruit young people with presents!

    This shows a lot of outrageously hateful and inaccurate oddities that the religious right in this country believe about homosexuality and gays, but are too cagey to talk about publicly in this country.
    They just quietly go about their business: organizing, raising money, lobbying Republicans, and working to fight the "gay agenda".
    Working to keep homosexuality viewed as a shameful affliction in as many people's eyes as possible, and to keep gays from having the same equal rights as all Americans.
    They are our enemy and we can choose to bury our heads in the sand and pretend it's not happening, or we can fight back.

    Dear Tazo 995

    Yes - Saudi is deeply troubling as a state. Deeply odd in its attitude to sex (they're all at it - gay men too - but behind closed doors) enforced by an unacceptably harsh penal code. Its prosyletising salafism is a major hazard to world stability and remains (on the face of it) significantly unchallenged.

    This statement shouldn't be necessary - yet tragically is on this site.

    What's your fucking point? India recently decriminalized it too. I'm not going to think, "hmm we used to be as bad therefore we're not innocent." No I'm not comparing to how recently which country became progressive. I'm talking about which countries CURRENTLY have sodomy laws.

    It's equivalent to saying, "Nevada sucks for not having a smoking ban," and then some idiot says, "yeah well California didn't either until 1999." That doesn't fucking matter and it doesn't change the fucking current situation.

    God sometimes I wonder how many people have cancer in their brain.
