This is my 3rd post on Uganda. The last one was in November.
This atrocious bill has been swinging like a pendulum since its conception from being almost making into a law, to being scraped to again revived and considered to be put into law.
Along with this, we have been subjected to a roller coaster emotional ride. We were shocked when this was first proposed, then started breathing a tad bit freely when the death penalty was said to have been removed. Then we heaved a big sigh of relief when it was declared that the bill has been scraped for good.
Now it is back and maybe by this weekend it would be signed as a law, with the death penalty et. al.
When the religious groups claim that homosexuality is a lifestyle choice, and can be altered through therapy, it can safely be assumed that once this bill passes into law, there will be no gays in Uganda. Because who in the right mind would choose to be gay when there is a death penalty, if found out.
Amongst all the tortures and discriminations and killings, if there still are LGBT people in the Islamic countries and places like Uganda, does it not clearly say, that it’s not a choice. If that had been the case, the gays in these countries would have gladly chosen to be straight when the other option is death?
This reasoning seems pretty simple and rational to me… wonder why it doesn’t to all the religious fanatics and politicians across the globe. Using once in a while the limited stock of grey cells that God has given you, is not a bad thing.
I just hope I would have to write just one more post on Uganda and may it be a positive one.
