"Cameroon's penal code calls for sentences ranging from six months to five years for people found guilty of "sexual relations with a person of the same sex."

Time to pay the piper.

I'm not aware of any sexual relations that occurred. So how was this line relevant? It's a slippery slope when you start convicting people based on thought and feeling.

At least some of the African countries have it right-- yea some of the world still believes two men making love to each other just ain't natural-- go figure??

Break the law go to jail. Why is that so hard to understand?

I won't blame gays for all spread of AIDS but their behaviour is definitely not helping. This is just another way of Cameroon government trying to stop the spread of AIDS. May seem ignorant but every lil bit helps.

Clearly you don't know much about AIDS. In Africa, AIDS primarily affects straight people. AIDS is a problem for everyone, not just gay people. This is just another way of Cameroon to persecute a minority based on religious convictions. Imprisoning innocent people HELPS NO ONE.

Gee, I sure hope that we aren't giving any foreign aid toe Cameroon.

I would hate to see my tax dollars being wasted on stuff as stupid as keeping someone in jail for 3 years over a private love note text message. Must be one wealthy nation to be able to afford to waste that kind of money on stupid stuff.

Why? The US is full of people doing time for stupid reasons as well.

What needs to be discussed openly is the role of the Roman Catholic Church in Africa's witch hunt, anti gay epidemic, and the Aids epidemic.

Unfortunately the world seems to be unwilling or incapable of acting against it. The Africans I assume will get an apology some 350 yrs later, meanwhile we would have a lost a priceless heritage of an alternate way of life.

it's unwilling: we live in a world where people see and hear horrible things happen but the likelihood of them wanting to help and do something about it is almost non-existent.

Are full of passionate intensity." --- WB Yeats

omg, you're so funny! It does seem that the southern states still have that old
'confederate' feeling to it! Sometimes, us folks up here in Mass are still called those 'Damned Yankees!' lol p.s. I marked you as favorite and I became a fan, if you don't mind...

When they have to pay a price, they might start to rethink their actions. We need to attack heterosexuals from Cameroon, Liberia, Nigeria, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Ghana, and Gambia in our countries. Start with embassy personnel. Then target politicians, the police, prosecutors, judges, prison personnel, and their loved ones, that persecute the homosexuals in the bigoted countries.

No we should support them.

Many of the countries that the US, UN, WHO, GAVI and the Gates Foundation support, especially in Africa and Asia, oppress, discriminate against, persecute, prosecute, imprison, torture, and even murder their own citizens who happen to be homosexual. Instead of the UN and other international organizations pouring money into these bigoted countries, the organizations should tell the countries to take the money they use to harm their gay citizens and use that money to buy vaccines and medicines instead. These disgusting countries should not be using their scant resources to destroy the lives of innocent citizens who happen to be homosexual when there are more positive and productive things these bigots can use the money for to help all their citizens, including those citizens who are born gay. The US, UN, WHO, GAVI and the Gates foundation should be absolutely ashamed to support the harassment, oppression, imprisonment, torture, and murder of so many innocent people. Until those practices are ended, no country, group, or individual should provide any aid or assistance to these countries. These disgusting countries should be boycotted, sanctions should be brought against them, and they should be treated as pariah nations. And it is patently unfair that gays and their loved ones should be devastated by discriminatory actions, while the bigots and their loved ones go about enjoying their lives as if nothing has happened. It's time to start making bigots pay for the discriminatory actions they take.

Those fundations are there to help the people--not the government

No, we should mind our own business. How about that?
