Kampf der Homosexualität

21. Juni 2012, von aus dem Netz

Und weiter geht’s im globalen Backlash:

Uganda has announced a ban on 38 non-governmental organisations it accuses of undermining the national culture by promoting homosexuality.

Simon Lokodo, the country’s ethics and integrity minister, claimed the NGOs were receiving support from abroad for Uganda’s homosexuals and „recruiting“ young children into homosexuality. (…)

The former Catholic priest said he believes the ban will come into a force next week. „If the NGOs continue to operate, they will be doing so illegally, they will be apprehended and will have to face a court of law.“

Homosexuality is illegal in Uganda. A bill calling for harsher penalties and outlawing the „promotion“ of homosexuality, including providing financial support to gays and lesbians, is pending in the east African country’s parliament.

A previous bill called for the death penalty for repeat offenders, although the new version is expected to drop this clause after international condemnation of the proposal and threats to cut off aid.
