We won’t lift a finger (with good reason, albeit) to save Crimea from being re-absorbed into a renascent Soviet Union, and we’re happy to see Afghanistan and Iraq sink back into the lake of fire that is modern Islamism—but touch not a hair on that gay head!
The Ugandan president committed to meeting with American “experts” on homosexuality to try to change his mind about the Anti-Homosexuality Act signed into law last month, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday during a forum at the State Department moderated by BuzzFeed.
Museveni claimed to have signed the law, which imposes up to a lifetime prison sentence for homosexuality, after being convinced no one is “born gay.”
We’re going to airlift the “experts” (the 77th Fighting Minnellis) and drop them with rainbow colored parachutes. They’ll close on Kampala singing “I Am What I Am” from La Cage aux Folles.
But those experts might want to take a little detour across Araby and the rest of Islam—where homosexuality is forbidden, denied, and punished by death—on the way to Uganda.
Oh yeah, they could start right here, in black churches across America:
A coalition of African-American civil rights leaders and pastors announced a campaign to gather 1 million signatures to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder for attempting to undermine states’ authority to “coerce states to fall in line with same-sex marriage.”
Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) is calling for Holder’s impeachment for “attempting to impose ‘same-sex marriage’ throughout the nation despite federal law, rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court, and state constitutional amendments to the contrary,” reads the online petition.
Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe, who’s accused Tony Blair of a plan to impose homosexuality throughout the Commonwealth; or Kenya’s Daniel arap Moi, who attacked the “gay scourge” sweeping Africa; or Zambia’s Frederick Chiluba, who has said gays do not have “a right to be abnormal”; or Namibia’s Sam Nujoma, who accused African homosexuals of being closet “Europeans” trying to destroy his country through the spread of “gayism”; or Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni, who proposed the arrest of all homosexuals, though he subsequently moderated his position and called for a return to the good old days when “these few individuals were either ignored or speared and killed by their parents”.
With all of this gay-bashing occurring all over Africa, why the sudden dispatch of “experts” (Queer Eye for the Bantu Guy) to Uganda?
[D]oes the fabulously “tailored approach” (as Rush pointed out yesterday) only extend to places that are 84 per cent Christian?
Ohhhhh. Why didn’t you say so? Muslims and African despots can lop off any offending protuberances they wish without a peep from us. But let a Christian nation pass a law that criminalizes “gayness” (even unto death), and we send in the pastel green berets.
Quite right, carry on. But we couldn’t appear more limp-wristed ourselves if we were auditioning for a Broadway-bound revival of The Boys in the Band.
