This man used FB to incite gay killings
THE man pictured below is Isabirya Richard, a staunch Christian and university graduate who posted on his Facebook page a picture of a young man whom he claimed was gay. He wanted the person tracked down and killed and declared that homosexuals should be stoned.
When my attention was drawn to his page, I – and a number of friends – asked Facebook to remove him, and to their credit they quickly did so.
This a small victory. A much bigger one would be the the removal from public life of the hatemongering idiot the Ugandans have for a president – Yoweri Museveni, an evangelical Christian who this week signed into law a bill harshening penalties for those arrested for being gay.
In doing so he made ludicrous claims that gay people give each other worms through sex, and that people are only gay because they have sex for money.
The law calls for first-time offenders to be sentenced to 14 years in prison and makes it a criminal offence not to report someone for being gay.
Lesbians are covered by the bill for the first time.
On signing the bill, the president questioned why gay men “failed” to be attracted to women, described them as “mercenaries” who have sex for money, expressed displeasure at the idea of oral sex and claimed that he had “listened to scientists” as a basis for his claims.
He added that there was something “really wrong” with gay people, and that he is “prepared” to be on a collision course with the west over the law.
I have failed to understand that you can fail to be attracted to all these beautiful women and be attracted to a man. That is a really serious matter. There is something really wrong with you.
Homosexuals are actually mercenaries. They are heterosexual people but because of money they say they are homosexuals. These are prostitutes because of money.
He asserted that he had taken the time to get scientific advice before signing off on the law.
No study has shown you can be homosexual by nature. That man can choose to love a man … is a matter of choice. After listening to the scientists, I got the facts. Can somebody be homosexual simply by nature? The answer is no.
Describing oral sex as a “culture”, and the mouth as an “address”, he went on to say that it was “engineered for kissing”, and that the mouth was not meant for oral sex.
One of the cultures that we detest is oral sex. The mouth is for picking food, not for sex. We know the address for sex. That address is not for sex.
Labouring the point, the imbecile added:
The mouth is for eating not for sex. The mouth is engineered for kissing. It is not healthy. You can contract STDs. You push the mouth there, you can come back with worms and they enter your stomach because that is a wrong address. You can also contract Hepatitis B.
Blaming the West for the presence of gay people in Uganda, he said “arrogant and careless Western groups” had been:
Coming in our schools and recruiting homosexuals into homosexuality and lesbianism.
Initially I have not paid attention to it because I was busy with the immediate issues of defence, security, electricity, the roads.
When finally, when I concentrated my mind on it, I distilled three problems: number one, those who are promoting homosexuality and recruiting normal people to it. Secondly, as a consequence of number one, many of those recruited, are doing so for mercenary reasons. To get money. In effect, homosexual prostitutes. These mercenary homosexual prostitutes have to be punished. Just like those who are recruiting them.
Number three, homosexuals exhibiting themselves. Exhibition of homosexuals, advertising yourself that you are homosexual.
Concluding, he addressed criticism from the West for the law. Critics include Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, Foreign Secretary William Hague, EU foreign policy chief Baroness Ashton and US President Barack Obama.
I advise friends from the West not to make this an issue because if they make it an issue the more they will lose. This is social imperialism. To impose social values of one group on our society. I would advise Western countries, this is a no-go area… I don’t mind being in a collision course with the West. I am prepared.
The US described the adoption of the law as a tragic day for Uganda, and the secretary of state, John Kerry, announced that “all dimensions” of US engagement with the country would be reviewed, including the aid budget.
Britain is not following suit. According to this report, the Department for International Development said all direct support to the Ugandan government had been cut in November after a corruption scandal, but a spokesman said the £97.9m in this year’s budget would not be withheld.
The UK remains committed to supporting the people of Uganda.
The money will now be channelled through alternative routes, including international aid agencies that met the UK’s human rights principles.
Other European donors have taken a tougher line. Norway said it would be withholding $8m in development aid, and Denmark will divert $9m away from the government.
Danish trade and development minister, Mogens Jensen, said:
We cannot distance ourselves too strongly from the law and the signal that the Ugandan government now sends to not only persecuted minority groups, but to the whole world.
Austria said it was reviewing its assistance.
