Kenyan Legislature Considers New Law To Allow Foreign Homosexuals To Be Stoned In Public

609px-Coat_of_arms_of_Kenya.svgThe anti-homosexual movement in Kenya continues this week with an infamous bill that would reportedly allow foreign homosexual people stoned to death in public. The law would allow such executions for foreigners who commit one homosexual act while imposing a life sentence on Kenyan nationals.

The draft bill has proposed that a foreigner who commits a homosexual act be stoned in public, while Kenyan nationals found guilty will be jailed for life.

The draft bill is the work of the Republican Liberty Party and prohibits all forms of sexual relations between people of the same sex. The party’s legal secretary, Edward Onwong’a Nyakeriga, is quoted as saying that “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.”

Only last week, a Ugandan court rejected such a law but did so on the grounds that the Parliament had not met the quorum requirement when passing the law — not as a ruling on individual rights.

The law in Kenya is being supported by an array of religious leaders.

  1. In St. Louis a de facto law allows jaywalking blacks to be executed on the spot.

    The name of the executioner is kept secret in conformity with the old laws where the executioner wore a hood.

    Job openings for the KKK?

    Different strokes for different folks.

  2. “Stoned In Public”

    Well at least they caught onto the idea about transparency.

    I think we might take a lesson and require all executions in the US be conducted in public with full disclosure of drugs and procedures and everyone who played a roll in the execution.

  3. “Different strokes for different folks.”

    So should we outsource executions and let corporations find ways to reduce costs and possibly generate revenues from the process?

  4. “…commit one homosexual act…”

    The law should be more explicit here. Is congratulatory butt-patting a homosexual act? (see basketball) Is placing one’s hands in the genital region of a man by a man a homosexual act? (see quarterback) Is two men kissing a homosexual act? (cheek kissing greetings)

    How many witnesses are required to prove it?
    (I suggest 3 , never just 2 (the participants))

    Crafting this law is a bi-i-itch.

  5. Watch the documentary “God Loves Uganda”. Look up Scott Lively and the International House of Prayer. This is a situation in which fundamentalist Christians and fundamentalist Muslims have gotten together in agreement to persecute gays. That’s progress, I guess….in some eyes.

    Ridiculous….. What’s wrong with being stoned in public?
    It takes away the right to be stoned in private?

  7. Africa has lost its way since the Europeans hurriedly handed over power (limited, as they had to stay under the IMF mafia yoke) in the sixties. Britain did a better job than the others but still started them off with bad eggs like Obote in Uganda, my childhood country. People confuse preferences and complete dislikes with law. They should know that their own penchant could also be banned, ridiculed and their lives put in jeopardy.

  8. In Kenya you can have three wives. In New York you go to jail for having three wives if you married in the States, but you could male to male marry a boyfriend, but risk a death sentence if you dock in Mombasa on your honeymoon. This gives an idea how silly these viewpoint crimes are.
    By the way, are they limiting the proposed stoning? Any stoning is a bad idea for the most part but there is stoning with a limited size and number of stones, stoning for a limited time, stoning until unconscious or stoning to death. Its all pretty backward, like the old navies and cat of nine tails; sometimes they keel hauled a person once and he did not always survive.

    Hello. Africa has gone from slave trading to colonialism to internecine genocide to homophobia. The vicious cycle of Suffering in Africa continues…

    Shame of a Nation.
    It is Sarah Palin’s fault for turning Africa into a nation.

  10. @Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter

    So you think gay people should be executed then. I’m glad you at least admit it.

    Also, I’m gay and I’d never go to Africa. Not because of homophobia, but because I’m not a fan of infectious diseases.

  11. David, what you think about people like Scott Lively interfering with and influencing a foreign country’s laws? Also do you think it’s a bad law only because foreigners are treated differently than citizens? Should both be stoned or imprisoned?

  12. @joshgodawful

    No, Josh, I don’t think you should be executed, although if you have good sense you will stay out of countries which don’t see things my way. I do think you should avoid promiscuous and risky behaviors which have the same effect as a death sentence for about 20% of you.

  13. Jail for residents. Death for foreigners.

    They must be reasoning that by outlawing imports, alternative lifestyle will, by attrition, eventually go away on its own, without having to kill any of the gay relatives of legislators.

  14. Who is it that pushes the misconception that most homosexuality is a lifestyle choice as opposed to being congenital? Fundamentalists.

  15. Apologists? That would indicate that there is something wrong with the ‘behavior’. No need to apologize for one’s sexual identity.

  16. The way you worded your question, you believe some fundamentalists think it’s congenital. So your own answer is even accurate.

    Just the same, why don’t you ask Anne Heche?

  17. Samantha, no I think you misunderstood me. I worded my question to ask why Fundamentalists think that “most” homosexuality is a lifestyle choice, not congenital. Squeeky seemed to be able to understand the sentence correctly.

  18. If fundamentalists believe that most homosexuality is a lifestyle choice, then there are also fundamentalists who believe some is congenital. That’s what you imply. Then you blamed “all” fundamentalists. Where you believe I misunderstood, is actually your own inability to think clearly because you live in a social construct of delusional myths crafted by institutions, governments and high-level spin doctors, never having or even crafting an original thought of your own.

  19. And Samantha tell everyone here how protein poisons people. It will no doubt display your “original” thinking in action.

  20. I’ll take your changing the subject, as defeat. You always lie in wait with your cattle prod, patiently waiting for a prolifer or christian you can attack, because the pleasure that comes with being sadistic, is irresistible. It conjures the image whenever you are around your grandkids, you go after them with your finger, poking them as though they are made of dough.

  21. @annie.

    Sure there is something wrong with the behavior. If a species starts having same-sex sex, it will probably become extinct quickly. The only reason why we don’t see it as a “problem” is because the number of people doing it is so small. And decent species can survive a certain number of screw-ups.

    In short, they are few and inconsequential. But to say that nothing is wrong is to say that there is nothing wrong with cerebral palsy, mental retardation, or autism just because those things are congenital. But the truth is, we work like crazy to find cures and help people who are born with those problems. Except when it comes to the LGBT crowd, There, we whistle and shuffle our feet and pretend nothing is screwed up.

  22. Samantha, you don’t have a clue as to my relationship with my grandkids, so you might want to STFU. With your acerbic nastiness I can only imagine that you are not married and have no children. Men like to eat steak. No defeat here, only shaking my head at your oddness.

  23. I’m no fan of Annie’s positions (and I’m not on her Christmas card list either), but taking a shot at her grandkids or the type of Grandma she might be is really low and just plain wrong.

  24. Squeeky, what would you do with kids with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, mental retardation, or a better, more accurate comparison, for instance an albino person. Should we shun them? Or should we accept them, love them and give them equal rights to everyone else? Why is being born different wrong? Autism, Cerebral palsy and other genetic conditions are harmful to the persons health. How is being gay harmful to one’s health if they are monogamous? Any kind of promiscuous sex spreads disease.

  25. Well, we know that you go online when you’re babysitting them. For anyone who is a victim of the conformity pandemic, just about everything you see would seem odd. I never share certain aspects of my life online so you really do not know one way or the other. But you make lots of assumptions. Just curious, you must be really popular among your friends, relatives and gays, the ones who are single and have no children.

    Telling someone to STFU is where I draw the line with you. I didn’t invite your insult today. And I never roll over and play dead when someone insults me. So don’t even read my comments from now on! I consider it a waste of time responding to you.

  26. @annie

    No, I don’t think we should shun gays, but neither should we be celebrating it as a wonderful thing. It seems to be a condition that affects 1 or 2% of the population and we should study it the same as any other condition.

    As far as being monagamousy, good luck on that with gay males. They are special snowflakes, and when they do deign to marry, they require special gay snowflake marriages that eschew all that “forsaking all others” stuff. That is why 20% are HIV positive.

    In addition, the physical aspects of “rear end sex” has its own problems, including diseases.

  27. Samantha, you do not have the right to say a thing about how I care for my grandchildren. That is low, nasty and uncalled for. You display your odd behavior by becoming so personal with those you disagree with. When you attack my mothering, or my grandmothering skills you can expect me to defend myself and I will not hesitate to draw attention to your strange mean spirited comments regarding someone’s connection to their grandchildren. You obviously haven’t a clue as how to care for children if you think that every single second of the time you spend with them is completely focused on them. Mothers of young children would never ever get anything done in their home if that were the case. Children don’t benefit from hovering helicopter parents or grandparents. My four kids grew up successful, strong, educated and kind to others. Perhaps you didn’t have an upbringing that taught you manners.

  28. Samantha and Squeeky, Always remind yourself when you try and have an intellectually honest conversation w/ a cultist, “I will never get that time or effort back. Like everything in this world, there is a scarcity of time and effort. Use it wisely.

  29. Nick, it’s not possible to have an intellectual conversation with cultists. After you show them their glaring contradictions, they get mad at you. Living with conflicting thoughts is a mental disorder.

  30. Samantha,
    When you don’t have an argument you attack your opponent personally, and to make it really personal you make disparaging comments about the opponents grandmothering skills. You see nothing wrong with this? I would ask, what is WRONG with you? You don’t have a ‘sense’ that such tactics are uncalled for? Do you have trouble relating to people?

  31. This is what happens when religion has a near monopoly on the reigns of power. Places like Kenya make Alabama or Oklahoma look like Vermont and New Hampshire. Kenya is so beholden by religious extremists that it politicians who advocate stoning can actually get elected.

  32. Fight for the Right to live free…
    … Not the right to take life.

    One preserves humanity…
    … The other destroys it.

    These laws are imported FROM America…

  33. The One True God only knows love…
    … Satan knows stoning others to death.

    Jesus thus commanded: Those that are free from sin may cast the first stone.
    Christians also believe that all mortals are born into sin. We are equal in the eyes of the Lord. Those that kill their brother/sister are NEVER followers of the One True God. They serve Satan’s cause.

    Closet homosexuals in deep, deep denial.

  35. It’s called a comeuppance…
    EXCLUSIVE: Texas anti-gay leader Jonathan Saenz’s ex-wife left him for a woman

    Mere months before Jonathan Saenz became president of the anti-gay group Texas Values, his wife left him for another woman, according to Hays County district court records obtained by Lone Star Q.

    The revelation could help explain Saenz’s seemingly abrupt transformation from socially conservative lobbyist to homophobic firebrand.

  37. Who do the homophobes protect their gay children from when they oppress their children and shame them into suicide?

  38. @Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter

    “Thx! I can just not believe how many people pile on the poor black folks in Africa when they don ‘t act like liberal white folks.”

    This comment seems to suggest only liberal white people are opposed to the proposed law, and the things you say about liberals suggests you aren’t one, so a logical deduction would be that you support this law. Or you are in fact a liberal. Or…I don’t know what.

    Incorrect. The history of oppression did.
    Had he meet the woman he married in a time where openness and freedom was accepted, she wouldn’t have to play straight to pleaser her oppressors.

    Get it straight and stop the b.s. K?

  41. Annie wrote: “what you think about people like Scott Lively interfering with and influencing a foreign country’s laws?”

    I don’t know many details about this, but generally speaking, I think any citizen is free to influence politicians either in this country or another country.

    Annie wrote: “Also do you think it’s a bad law only because foreigners are treated differently than citizens? Should both be stoned or imprisoned?”

    I have mixed feelings about it Annie. When I see how homosexual advocates are destroying our society for future generations, I think that perhaps if inappropriate sexual behavior, such as adultery and homosexuality, were criminalized then it would lead to a healthier society. But on the other hand, at this point in time, perhaps such is not something our society can handle. Therefore, I cannot find it in myself to advocate for criminalizing homosexuality, but neither can I condemn another country for doing it.

    It used to be that young people found identity in good character. Now people find their identity in sexual relations. That is sad.

  42. Annie wrote: “… why Fundamentalists think that “most” homosexuality is a lifestyle choice, not congenital.”

    I’m not a fundamentalist or a homophobe, but the twin studies convinced me that homosexuality is similar to alcoholism. There is a genetic component that can give someone a propensity toward homosexuality, but there also are environmental issues and cognitive issues. It is pretty clear that many choices that a person makes in life, whether one is labeled homosexual, bisexual, heterosexual, or asexual, determines the course of their sexual development. Also, considering the sexual studies such as Kinsey and others, it is pretty clear that sexuality is a continuum and not easily categorized as homosexual vs heterosexual. The homosexual vs heterosexual meme is a political tool to further all forms of sexuality and hedonism in the name of equality for all.

  43. DavidM: “When I see how homosexual advocates are destroying our society for future generations….”

    Back with your usual overstatements, I see. You assume that society was healthier when sexual behavior was kept hidden and/or suppressed, and you seem to overlook the fact that there was a time when homosexuality was criminalized. For the record, things did not work out so well…for anyone.

    You’re on the losing side of this issue. Society has come to realize the folly of punishing homosexuality as a simple matter of social justice. Contending that society can’t handle criminalizing sexual behavior is similar to asserting that it can’t handle legalized marijuana. Your comments on this subject betray some very deep-seated issues (no pun intended) and it’s doubtful that this forum is going to help you work through them. But I’m sure we all wish you luck.

  44. The advocates for recognizing homosexuality, bisexuality, mis-sexuality (born to the wrong sex) as ways of being human do not infringe in any way on the rights of heterosexual persons.

    No, DavidM, no societal destruction. Just recognition that there are a multitude of ways of being human. Not everyone the same as in a melting pot but as distinct as croutons on a salad.

    Most of what it is to be a human being being human is interactions with other human beings being human in their own way too..

  45. RTC wrote: “You assume that society was healthier when sexual behavior was kept hidden and/or suppressed, and you seem to overlook the fact that there was a time when homosexuality was criminalized. For the record, things did not work out so well…for anyone.”

    I think it is a lie that the psychological problems that homosexuals suffer from is because of a society that does not accept their sexual behavior. I think their problems are related to internal conflict with their natural biological drive and internal sense that sexual relations is about a complementary unity between opposite genders and the creating of a family. If my view is correct, then endorsing homosexuality as acceptable behavior leads to a harm upon homosexuals, bisexuals, and those who are sexually curious. My prediction is that as society fully endorses homosexuality, homosexuals will continue to have the same problems with depression, suicide, drug abuse, identity conflict, etc. We also can expect to have more individuals deviating from the order of male-female units and the LGBTQ community expanding and assuming greater authority and power over society to help meet their sexual needs and goals.

  46. The approval of homosexual behavior sends a false message to younger generations that marriage is about happiness created when two people sexually love each other and sexually commit to each other. As a result, more young people today have children out of wedlock. All of society suffers with greater poverty, children being raised without a mother and father, greater crime, etc.

  47. this law should never come to pass…it is a violation of basic human right to life. and those supporting this law should ask themselves whether they would be willing to stone their own children if it so happened that their children were homosexuals.

  48. mestizakatcey, it is generally understood that criminals give up many fundamental rights by committing a crime. The real question is not about the basic human right to life, but about whether a nation might rightly consider homosexual behavior to be a capital crime.
