What the?!?!? No. No, no, no, no, no, NO!!!!!!!!

Journal Entry: Tue May 10, 2011, 9:21 PM
WHAT. THE. HELL.

I just got a news article from :iconboingolo: about something REALLY messed up going down.  Namely, that the Ugandan Parliament plans to make being gay a crime that is punishable by death.  I am simply too gobsmacked and outraged to come up with a coherent thought on this.  Seriously, you thought I was mad when Chelsea's old account was deactivated by that jerkass hacker?  (I was.)  Well, I'm afraid that you really haven't seen just how pissed-off I can get when there's a severe, large-scale human rights violation about to go down.  So, all I can do is provide a copy-paste from the site, edited for extra coherence:

I just signed a petition demanding that Ugandan President Museveni veto the "Kill The Gays" bill should it be passed in Parliament.

The website “All Out” just learned that the “kill the gays” bill - a death sentence for LGBT people in Uganda - could come up for a vote in the next 24 hours if immediate action isn’t taken.

Conservative leaders are trying hard to push the bill forward before the millions who oppose it have a chance to speak out.  If we can create a massive international outcry, there’s a chance to stop this bill from becoming law.

This hateful bill appears to be a political diversion, a way to distract from the legitimate grievances of pro-democracy activists, who have been beaten, teargassed, jailed, and even killed in recent weeks.

There are only days – if not hours – left to make sure your voice is heard.  Will you join me in demanding that Ugandan President Musevini veto the "Kill The Gays" bill should it be passed in Parliament?  Sign and share this urgent petition:

Uganda Anti-Anti-Gay Bill Petition

Im beginning to think every country outside of america has the dumbest leaders in existence.

Whoever said it was "unholy" or not, right now, fuck the bible. If people are getting murdered for this, than either
A) America of some other country will fuck Uganda up
B) We riot, than America or some other country will fuck them up.

Those are two, really politically incorrect things to say, but seriously speaking, this is an outrage.

....This IS and international crisis, right?

"Being gay is wrong. It says so in the bible!!"

So? It also gave thumbs up to slavery of other races, among many other bad things that are now obsolete.

:ohmygod: Yeah... I prefer the New Testament... it's where those old-fashioned ideas start being condemned...

Anyways, the death penalty was dropped from the bill! :w00t:

WHAAAAAAAAAAATTT!!!?? How DARE they!! It's one thing to be a homophobic asshole who holds up hateful signs rejecting gay marriage. But this here is repeating the Holocaust! It drives me NUTS whenever there is someone who thinks a homosexual can't even be considered to be human being! :furious:

Okay, we as humans apparently can't help but think the minority is evil... This is just overboard, I don't know a gay but that doesn't mean we should just kill them for NO REASON!!!

I'm not exactly fond of homosexuality myself, but I take a "live and let live" approach to it - so gaybashing pisses me off to no end.

...Huh? I didn't know that this bill was religiously motivated.

Though I am unable to resist making wisecracks about the Westboro Baptist Church.

anything that involves the suffering of something other than the norm is obviously religiously motivated. =/

you're being pretty naive about it.

Unless you studied about religion and events going around the world, your comment is pretty weak.

It's best that you just help ban this awful Uganda law.
