    Anti-gay laws in Africa are product of American religious exports, say activists

    When he arrived at Kampala?s Hotel Triangle for a three-day conference, the Rev Kapya Kaoma knew that he would not like what he heard.

    The clue was in the event?s title ? ?Exposing the truth behind homosexuality and the homosexual agenda? ? and in the line-up of guest speakers arranged by Stephen Langa, head of the Ugandan-based Family Life Network (FLN), and an outspoken advocate for the criminalisation of homosexuality in Uganda.

    Given top billing at the event hosted by the FLN was Scott Lively, president of Abiding Truth Ministries, an American conservative Christian group from California, and a Holocaust revisionist whose controversial book The Pink Swastika names homosexuals as ?the true inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities.?

    Weeks after the Kampala conference in March last year ? which followed a meeting between the speakers and members of the Ugandan Parliament ? a clause appeared in the country?s draft Anti-Homosexuality Bill recommending life imprisonment for certain homosexual ?crimes? or, for ?serial offenders?, the death sentence.

    To Mr Kaoma, an Anglican priest from Zambia who is project director of Political Research Associates ? a Massachusetts-based progressive think-tank ? it was further evidence of how America?s Christian Right has stoked intolerance to homosexuality in Africa.

    My response exactly!, no disrepect to the poster but when folks are not clear about African history, things lke this are taken as fact.

    African culture from one end of the continent to the other has been staunchly pro-hetero and anti gay since the time that the European did not know what a shoe was, nor had a home with a window.

    Folks need to take a trip to Jamaica, and find ot what the Bobo-Shanti dread Rastafari have to say about homosexuality, to get a real understanding of the African view

    Even gays here dont understand why we wont align with them. Blacks singlehandedly defeated the pro gay law in Cali.

    They are trying to pass one here in Michigan. We will vote against it here too

    don't most cultures and religions prohibit homosexuality anyway? so don't blame the good Americans pretending to be Christians saving lost souls on the dark continent.

    homosexuals invented nazism...and now they have some nerve always complaining about discrimination. tsk tsk tsk

    And the irony is that there isn't suppose to be gayness/homosexuality in Africa. Well why would you need a law against something and protest in the streets against something you don't have?

    Maybe the protesters were just bored and needed a way to spend their time.... since there's no homosexuality in Africa.

    At least they are not slaves. Or prostitutes. Or child soldiers and killers... which tends to run rampant in Africa :em3700: :peace: :angel1:

    blame


    Now I know who to blame for the number of gays coming here:court:

    The Dominican Republic is a known sex tourism destination. We have both males and female coming here looking for both males and females.

    I would say that the heterosexuals are split about even between blacks and whites. I believe that there are more homosexuals blacks here than whites, just an observation. This could be due to the homosexual whites being more accepted in their home area's, and the black homosexuals coming here to hide the fact?? I don't know an have not statics's to back it up. This is just observation in our Colonial Zone

    The prize for looking for underage kids goes to the Italian's
