For the attention of campaigners about all things gay, this is bona fide discrimination. This is the sort of horror that we, as a ‘community’ should be outraged by and acting to help with. Those poor, brave people forced to live in fear for their lives because of something we in the UK can largely take for granted.
Instead of getting pissy about civil partnerships not being saddled with the patrimonial-religious label of ‘marriage’, or diverting time and energy into getting teenagers not to use ‘poof’ as an insult, this is the sort of terrible reality that we should all be up in arms about. Predictably, the religious
idiots leaders are hiding in archaic nonsense rather than easing the suffering of their fellow human beings. Between this and the Norn Ireland-Amnesty bollocks, I despair of organised religion all over again. To prevent aid because you want to dictate the terms is disgusting, and followers of these religions ought to be ashamed.
Anyway, SMUG are facing the most terrible situation in Uganda, and I for one will be contacting Stonewall et al to see if there’s even a small thing I can do.
