Uganda Bill Finally Shelved?

Jim Burroway

March 24th, 2011

I received an email earlier this afternoon from a trusted source in Kampala, saying that the news program NTV Tonight reported that the Anti-Homosexuality Bill will not be passed by Parliament after all. Uganda’s Information Minister Kabakumba Matsiko was reportedly shown on television explaining that the bill will not be passed because other laws already exist which criminalize homosexuality. However, some parts of the bill may be attached to the Sexual Offenses Act. Which parts, we don’t know. Our source writes, “Bahati was panicked and tried to look defiant.” M.P David Bahati is the bill’s sponsor.

NTV is Uganda’s main independent television station, and is owned by the same media company which publishes the reputable Daily Monitor newspaper.

Update: Andrés Duque of Blabbeando pointed me to this Spanish language article (Google Translation) from the Agencia EFE which appears to  confirmation initial reports.

Hi,

I am a 53 year old woman from ALEXANDRIA MN. I live in this oppressed community.

When I came here, ppl warned me of “gangs” of the community go after blacks, hispanics, asians, gays, and single women.

I planned on living my life, minding my own business, and starting a business here.

WRONG…There are ADULT community gangs, that average age is in the 40’s.

They need to know everyone’s business, and if there is something they don’t like about someone, they Community MOB, intimidate, harass, stalk by gps, vandalize repeatedly.

This has been traced over the past 3 yrs by myself, and another friend who lives not in the community but neighboring community.

The GANGS, knew too much information from callins to local law enforcement.
We connected the dots to the HATE Gang, and discovered they have family, or former residence in common.

The community has a distrust in law enforcement here. Quote from a longtime resident on a local fair board for 40 yrs. “We have one of most corrupt, if not THE most corrupt L.E. in MN.

Catholic priest tells parishoner who moved back here with his son to raise after divorce.

“What are u doing back here? don’t u know ppl here are closed minded, oppressive, and set in theirs ways? You have NO future here.

Ppl who seem Different from the ones who grew up here are scruitinized, info found out on them, by getting into their homes, and targeting them, financially ruining them, and stalking, and intimidating 24/7.

People here are living in fear, and others looking the other way, hoping they will not be noticed so they are targeted.

Others, do not want to believe it is happening here.

In Jan of this year, a young openly gay man committed suicide, because he was community gang mobbed.

They harassed, followed him, mocked him, destroyed his life, thru face book, rumors, and HATE projected into his life daily.

There is a deep dark undercurrent in ALEXANDRIA, and ppl are silently suffering with no help from L.E.

The SPOTLIGHT, needs to be put on ALEXANDRIA, and it’s history of ppl with same mindset are driven out of the county, and area, and the HIERARCY remains in power.

With the contacts in L.E., they have been tipped off, when members of L.E. who are oblivious to what is happening here, others in L.E. know very well what is happening.,

It has been decided here, that they will have an Oppressed closed Society.

Many ppl’s lives have been ruined here.

SHINE THE PUBLIC SPOTLIGHT ON ALEXANDRIA MINNESOTA FOR WHAT IT IS.

HATE CORRUPT CITY U.S.A.

Anyone who speaks out is silenced with elevation of attacks against them, and their property, making the person seem
crazy. This has been the m.o. The poor gay man who took his own life was community mobbed………

Please take this seriously………I have also contacted FOXNEWS out of Minneapolis………Light needs to be shed onto this Town for what it is.

With it’s beautiful lakes, and lovely scenery it lures ppl here under false pretenses. It is ACTUALLY DARK, AND HATEFUL UNDERNEATH ALL THAT BEAUTY.

JUST HOW COMMUNITY LEADERS, AND THE MINDSET IN WHICH THEY WANT TO PERCEIVE ALEXANDRIA AS……….BUT OTHERS WHO COME HERE FROM THE’OUTIDE” LEARN OTHERWISE, BY THE DESTRUCTION OF THEIR LIVES THRU THIS HEIRARCHY.

THANK YOU

SINCERELY,

ROBYN R. FOSS

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
