"Gay" in the News: Uganda

After signing the bill criminalizing homosexual behavior, the Uganda president is quoted, "This law was provoked by arrogant and careless Western-based groups that are fond of coming into our schools to recruit our young children," he said in a televised speech shortly after signing the bill. "Can somebody be homosexual purely by nature without nurture? The answer is: 'No.' "

He certainly seems to have failed to get the message about "born that way", doesn't he?

If that line don't fetch them, I don't know "gay" activism!

Somewhat ironic to see news media pictures of protest signs.  Uganda reportedly has a high literacy rate of about 2/3.  The signs are obvioulsy intended to be read by others, not Ugandans.
