Horrific "Stone The Gays" Bill Introduced In Kenya

Uganda may have overturned its "Kill The Gays" law that called for the death penalty for homosexuality, but Kenya is too happy to pick up where its African neighbor left off. 

Introduced by legislators this week, a new piece of legislation in Kenya seeks to punish LGBT Africans with death by stoning. 

Pink News has more:

A new Anti-Homosexuality Bill has been submitted by the Republican Liberty Party in the National Assembly.

It would introduce harsh punishments for homosexuality, with life imprisonment or the death penalty for ‘aggravated homosexuality’.

The bill’s author, Edward Onwong’a Nyakeriga, said: “The petition aims at providing a comprehensive and enhanced legislation to protect the cherished culture of the people of Kenya, legal, religious and traditional family values against the attempts of sexual rights activists seeking to impose their values of sexual promiscuity on the people of Kenya.

“There is need to protect children and youth who are vulnerable to sexual abuse and deviation as a result of cultural changes, uncensored information technology, parentless child developmental settings and increasing attempts by homosexuals to raise children in homosexual relationships through adoption, foster care or otherwise.”

The new bill also establishes life-in-prison sentences for people "running brothels for homosexuality purposes," which critics say could be used to target anyone who lives with a gay person. 




And another reason to say "Fuck Africa".  No, not really but I'm so sad to see this happen to our LGBT family out there.
