    Do you think that Ugandan elections are fair? Everyone knows the election was rigged. They are governed by a corrupt dictator.

    Do you know what the literacy rate is? Given that it is literally one of the poorest nations in the world, not so high. And the schools are run by the Church there to boot. The same Church which has been funded by American evangelicals to teach nothing but hatred.

    Their media is ridiculously poor.

    Do you really believe that this is a reflection of the views of most Ugandans? That idea is madness. This is a product of a dictator, the LRA, poverty, and a lack of access to resources, information, or goods other than those offered by a few NGO's and an abundance of evangelical, gay-bashing churches who set up shop there to offer an "alternative" to their shitty government.

    They also have had one of the world's highest HIV rates and are struggling with a mysterious disease that WHO has yet to figure out that is fatal.

    Cast the blame where it belongs. The Ugandan people hardly have had a voice to even express themselves.

      pander to their culture. Do you really think that if homohatred wasn't pervasive among the population that the government would still be pushing such vicious laws? C'mon, they are catering to a nasty bigotry among the general population. I see no reason why my tax dollars ought to support that shit.

      Just another faggity fag socialist fuckstick homosinner!
