I will never understand the fear associated with allowing gays and lesbians to just be happy in society, whether in Africa, America or friggin' Easter Island. It makes no logical sense.

What are they expecting...massive group orgiastics in the public squares? ABBA on the radio 24/7? Mandatory "drag" names like Miss Shapen being applied to straight children? There can only be ONE San Francisco, Mr. Prez of Zimbabwe.

ABBA?

"Dancing Queen" in particular, disco in general. Sorry to bring this up, please don't hold it against the gay community.

Not my choice either, but for all the "breeders" on these boards, you have to make a reference for something they understand. Tiesto, k.d.lang or Scissor Sisters would be a better cultural representation at the moment.

I know, right? Do they force him to take Viagra? As a gay man, the sight of a vajayjay takes the potion out of the lotion, you catch my drift?

Yowzas.

Seriously? Exporting homosexuality to Africa, Mr. Obama???

Well here is what I say to that

No more exportation of gays to Africa!!! We need them here in America to balance out all of Sarah Palin's Ret___rds.

Unfortunately until Heterosexuals stop their plan to spread heterosexuality worldwide gays and lesbians will continue to be oppressed.

I wish our government would pay more attention to this heterosexual agenda - apparently they want to recruit us all!
04:45 PM on 04/07/2010
Yes.... Excellent! Our plans are proceeding as scheduled. Let the worldwide conversion begin!!

Now, if we can only get "RuPaul's Drag Race" TV show cancelled next.....

How is comrade Bob's socialist utopia playing out for gays? The left is to blame for this. As Rachel Maddow would say "you have blood on your hands", because you have something in common with a government in Afrika. Just pointing out logical fallacies used by your demagogue-in-chief Rachel Maddow.
05:08 PM on 04/07/2010
That's so pathetic. The right wing American to African anti gay connection is a clear and present danger that infects the policies of several African countries. The left isn't importing homophobia and hardly supports* Mugabe whose government is hardly socialist. Last time I checked Zimbabwe had a capitalist economy and a paternalistic authoritarian government monopolized by ZANU PF with MDC employed as figleaf and very junior party.

*not that some leftie loons don't hold Mugabe as a model leader giving the finger to The Man and excuse away his atrocities against his people. But this disturbed bunch is a tiny minority.
06:09 PM on 04/07/2010
Stop propagating the logical fallacy of guilt by association. Show me the "right wing American" that condones raping and killing gay people and all serious people who consider themselves conservative or otherwise would be willing to condemn them and certainly most do not agree with them. Don't try to convince me that, because some people think homosexuality is immoral they are advocating this sort of brutal violence against gays.

Scott Brown, is that you? Knock it off...seriously, Rachel Maddow IS NOT RUNNING AGAINST YOU! I didn't know "Tea Party" was synonymous with "I Ride the Little Bus to School".
06:11 PM on 04/07/2010
Right. She is not running, but curiously her "friend" made a "joke" facebook page that she knew about, floating the idea of a senate run. Right. It was a "joke", not to be taken seriously. Maybe she should not be taken seriously.

Why are people so afraid of gays? What possible threat could they be to anyone?

It does not compute...

They threaten my sense of style: So what if I like earth-tone cottons and wools? Leave me alone and take your paisley rayon with you!

The Cults of Jesus Inc, Catholic, Evangelical and LDS/Mormon alike have demonstrated clearly their dogma of Hate and Fear and how easy it is to select a "Other" to demonize and present as the enemy.
The enemy is the mythology of the Cults of Jesus that now has children being murdered to end witchcraft, children murdered to increase family prosperity according to Rick Warren's Purpose Driven lies and diatribes.
The 7 mountain mandates and the hate are exported by our politicians who are members of the C-Street Family too. Inhoffe and Grassley are up to their ears in being at the beck and call of the C-Street Family on this level.
"Kill the Gays" legislation is a Rick Warren initiated action in Uganda and this is what the US Taxpayer supports in the "Faith-Based Initiative" of the 12-step George W Bush who was searching for the end times demons Gogg and Magogg in the middle east.
These are the fruits of the Cults of Jesus.

And yet we get to read stuff like this:

"Porter said the annual U.S. rights review presented to a discussion group in Harare late Tuesday gave greater emphasis to gay rights than in previous years, reflecting concerns in Obama's administration about homophobia."

Concerns. Oh yeah... Such concerns...
03:57 PM on 04/07/2010
South Africa on the other hand legalised gay marraige in 2006.
Yet, there are many within the ANC who view Mugabe as the ultimate hero, and Zimbabwe as the model African state.
Watch this space.
08:58 PM on 04/07/2010
I remember reading about a year ago Desmond Tutu admonishing those in the ANC who flirted (and worse) with Mugabe.

Well, we thought things were bad here in the States. This is just awful. How can any government try to control what others do in their private lives? It just seems so archaic.

Archaic? In case you weren't aware; the U.S. only legalized gayness in 2004. That Supreme Court ruling was followed by something like 14 states banning marriage equality.

And as for government control of private life: try smoking pot in the privacy of your home.

I am happy that you are stunned by how bad some people have it. You have a good heart. Thank you for caring.

Ugandan Clerics...Clerics of all nationalities.

I long for the day when Cleric refers to someone who does book keeping and accounting work instead of some egotistical faker who has insinuated himself between the superstitious and the non-existent..
G0d is de@d. More appropriately G0d never existed. We are alone and we struggle and flail about like William Golding's children castaway on an island by themselves.

Even if you got rid of religion you would still have to deal with this. Human beings have a rather violent and unnaccepting nature.

You are right. I am not in favor of getting rid of religion.
I just wish we could out grow it.
To outlaw or try and take something away only prolongs it's life.
That is why I support our constitutions guarantee of freedom of and from religion.
I just get discouraged with the human condition.
03:48 PM on 04/07/2010
I read awhile ago that this was happening in South Africa, and a gay rights leader in that country was raped then murdered. Is this a continent wide travesty, or is it just Southern Africa?

Great, are we now going to send in troops and have ANOTHER war?

You know, you could at least show some sympathy for the gay community in Zimbabwe instead of immediately turning to a "How does this affect us" mentality.

Why would you rape a man because he's gay? I am confused
03:45 PM on 04/07/2010
They rape Lesbians, they force gay men to have heterosexual sex (which could also be rape)

How do you FORCE force gay men to have heterosexual sex ? I guess you could if you gave them Viagra.

How in the world would a gay man accomplish heterosexual intercourse? I could no more "rise to the occasion" than fly to the moon by flapping my arms. Seriously!

And raping someone is supposed to get them to like the opposite sex, how?

This is disgusting.
