The rise of anti-homosexual

The February 20th report in The Times (United Kingdom) on a massive effort against homosexual in Uganda, attract Awang’s attention. The public wave against such wickedness especially gay is getting apparent with many steps being undertaken. Latest, the country’s authorities had introduced an anti-homosexual bill, which spark controversy.

The bill among others proposed that the same-sex habit among under-18 couple and disabled, who are infected by HIV/Aids, will be given mandatory death sentence.

Adult gay couples, who committed sexual act with their partners even on mutual consent, will be imprisoned for life. Prison sentence will also be imposed on any individuals and groups including the non-governmental organization (NGO) which promoted homosexual, besides failure to report such despicable act to the authorities.

The issue has been a hot topic of debate in Uganda, especially when it received foreign protest among them from the United States and influential pro-gay organizations in the world. With the international pressure, the status of the proposed law on death penalty is hanging in the balance. Even then, the majority of the Ugandan public support the drastic measure as gay problem has reached a critical level.

Street demonstrations initiated by the church have received overwhelming support from the public which is seen as an uprising in confronting the gay phenomenon. They come up with badges with a tagline “Ugandans against sodomy.” In his comment, chairman of the Anti-Homosexual Group, Martin Ssempa said that Western civilization had been threatened by the peril of homosexuality. The anti-gay sentiment is not only felt in Uganda but also in many other African countries. The people of the continent have woken up.
