    This isn’t good enough. Homosexuality should be decriminalized around the world, period.
    When certain countries ignore the success of gay citizens where decriminalization is in effect, they make themselves look like intractable barbarians.
    Not people committed to any form of gov’t that respects it’s citizens.
    Especially if they are women and/or gay.

    Pam Spaulding has an article posted on Firedoglake that the death penalty has been dropped from the Ugandan anti-gay bill. Someone should inform her otherwise.

    A quick check of Pam’s article shows an update from Jim. Sorry about posting a comment so quickly. I should have checked first. My bad.

    Metro Weekly cited a tweet from Frank Mugisha as confirming the death penalty had been removed from the bill.

    While people are ecstatic that the death penalty may be removed, we should be asking why this bill exists at all, and when will it be removed in its entirety?
