Earlier today, Care2.com, posted a "human rights" story without remembering the responsibility to report the whole story. Normally I don't comment about these stories but when truth is forgotten because of the public's tendency to short memory and that "short memory" is exploited by those more interested in their selfish political agenda than they are justice, compassion, fairness, and reality, then I will speak out. Here are my comments on the story above:
I remember reading just a few years back the horrible reports of the massive spread of HIV/AIDS in these countries (including Uganda) all over the Internet and other media. millions of innocent women were contracting AIDS from their adulterous husbands who were committing homosexual acts. Virgins were being sought after in order to infect them with the virus as these men thought it would remove the disease from themselves but cruelly thought it was appropriate to kill another to save themselves. Nothing was done about that other than mention of it and so-called educational programs (which have apparently been unsuccessful) Masses of children have been made orphans and infected by these treacherous and selfish acts. What of them? No one seems to be remembering what has been perpetrated on them. While I don't subscribe to the death penalty lightly, what are you going to do to address the wrongs done to these poor innocents? You're education programs have failed there. What rights and protections do these women and children get?
"The parliament should be given the opportunity to discuss and pass the bill, because homosexuality is killing our society," Ssempa told the committee.
