Quickie Link: Uganda's Minister for Ethics Vows to Fight Homosexuality
(Uganda) - The Minister for Ethics and Integrity, James Nsaba Buturo, has vowed to block the demand for recognition of Gay's rights. "The Government shall do whatever it takes to block the spread of homosexuality." People who are agitating for those rights are selfish individuals with callous intention, Buturo said, adding that: "They are trying to impose a strange, ungodly, unhealthy, unnatural, and immoral way of life on the rest of our society." "I will endeavour to block it. I can assure you on that. Let them go to another country, and not here," the furious Buturo said. His reaction comes a week after the State Minister for Youth and Children's Affairs, James Kinobe, revealed that a Bill on homosexuality was in the offing. Kinobe also vowed to oppose the demand for recognition of the Gay's rights.
