Ugandan President Blocks Anti-Gay Rights Bill.

Yoweri Museveni
Uganda's president has refused to approve a controversial bill that would see homosexuals jailed for life, saying there were better ways to "rescue" people from their "abnormality". In a letter to parliament, Yoweri Museveni said gays would go "underground and continue practicing homosexuality or lesbianism for mercenary reasons", according to the independent newspaper, Daily Monitor.
The anti-gay bill passed through the Ugandan parliament last month after its architects agreed to drop a death penalty clause.
"The question at the core of the debate on homosexuality is what do we do with an abnormal person? Do we kill him/her? Do we imprison him/her? Or we do contain him/her?" the president was quoted as writing in a letter to parliament. He said that homosexuality was caused by either "random breeding" or a need to make money. And lesbians, he said, chose female partners because of "sexual starvation" and the failure to marry a man. But he said improving the nation's economy would stop people becoming gay. Museveni continued: "You cannot call an abnormality an alternative orientation. It could be that the Western societies, on account of random breeding, have generated many abnormal people," he said, adding that other people became gay for "mercenary reasons", or, in the case of lesbians, a lack of sex with men. I guess his arm has been twisted by the west. Oh well. To each his own. Aljazeera.

  1. I love his view.
    Do we kill them? ? Just because they are differnt? Or do e we contain them?

    Who gave us the right to judge? Homosexuality is a sin. So is stealing, killing, lying, etc.

    Isn't it better to live in love? Isn't it better to find that cause so we can prevent othet people in the future?

    As someone said, it all seems ok until a member of your family is set up.
