Get the story right... Uganda is not 'ATTACKING" homosexuals, they are planning the death penalty for homosexuals!

This is an outrage. We need to speak out as an international community aginst the depradations of these people. If our nation and the other "civilized" nations of the world don't with hold aid, it will be the same thing as agreeing with them. We have with held aid before over human right violations and if we do not do so agin then I feel that such a point could happen here. This is not a gray issue, this is black and white. Good or evil. I know many of these nations often kill of their own, and we have steped in many times to put an end to such insanity. How is the world supposed to help with the AIDS epidemic in Africa if we can't stand behind each and every infected person? If the clinics shut down or become unused out of fear, this disease will run rampant, decimating their population in less than a generation. How can we speak out aginst this??

It says fight homophobia, not homosexuals. I cannot believe they think this is the right thing to do. Being gay should never be a crime! Stupid colonial-age laws were sodomy was illegal. Why are we so concerned with what is going on in other peoples BEDROOMS? that is their place, let them just find someone to love and who loves them!!!

Being homosexual is not a crime! It's who you are. It's a persons right to be heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual. You can't attack people for being who they are, it's disgusting. It's just as bad as hating someone for being black or Muslim. Discrimination cannot be tolerated.
