re: #105 lrsshadow

This post is a little misleading. The bill (which I just read in its entirety) does not authorize people to be executed for gay sex. It does though for those who gay rape their own children, drug some one and then gay rape them, gay rape a minor, have gay sex with aids, etc. Here is the actual language from the bill;

3. Aggravated homosexuality.
(1) A person commits the offense of aggravated homosexuality where the

(a) person against whom the offence is committed is below the age of 18 years;

(b) offender is a person living with HIV;

(c) offender is a parent or guardian of the person against whom the offence is committed;

(d) offender is a person in authority over the person against whom the offence is committed;

(e) victim of the offence is a person with disability;

(f) offender is a serial offender, or

(g) offender applies, administers or causes to be used by any man or woman any drug, matter or thing with intent to stupefy overpower him or her so as to there by enable any person to have unlawful carnal connection with any person of the same sex,

(2) A person who commits the offence of aggravated homosexuality shall be liable on conviction to suffer death.

(3) Where a person is charged with the offence under this section, that person shall undergo a medical examination to ascertain his or her HIV status.

The bill does contain other legal actions for various gay activities, but it is nothing more then what we still have on our legal books in the USA. It may be strong legislation, but it isn’t how it is being sold on NPR or this site. Here is the link to the bill itself;

The statement in this post by Charles “…Uganda to institute the death penalty for homosexuals:…” Is a Lie if you want to be intellectual honest it should say “Uganda to institute the death penalty for homosexual rape.” Come on Charles I expect more from you.

Why, pray, do you need a separate law for gay rape when rape is illegal all by itself? Mmm?

Sort of like why I’m generally against “hate crime” laws.
