Harper tells Uganda Canada deplores anti-gay laws..

Good for Stephen Harper....
Uganda's president got an earful from Prime Minister Stephen Harper over the African nation's proposed law targeting gays.

The Ugandan "anti-homosexuality bill" would imprison and even execute homosexuals.

But the proposed law barely drew a mention at this weekend's Commonwealth summit in Trinidad and Tobago - despite calls before the conference for the country's suspension from the organization.

Harper said leaders generally don't talk about specific laws during the Commonwealth meetings.

But he said he pulled aside Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and "indicated Canada's deep concern, strong opposition of the fact we deplore these kinds of measures."

"We find them inconsistent with, frankly, I think any reasonable understanding of human rights, and I was very clear on that with the president of Uganda," Harper told reporters on the final day of the Commonwealth meetings.

I agree, good for PM Harper. Will the gay community understand the honesty he used?

And yet the Unions in Ontario and Toronto still have a Pro-Hamas/Hezbollah friendship goiong during Protests to bash Israel.
Meanwhile both these islamofascist groups have been known to murder gays in public under Shariah law.
Maybe that's why Syed Ryhanni got the boot from CUPE after his rants at the Pro-Hamas Peace marches in Toronto.

Harper is a real man and leader. A refreshing change from our usual politicians.

Harper is truly a believer in real human rights and he also knows that we have to defend them fiercely. He was not for gay marriage, but he knows very well that Uganda's proposed law is evil. Uganda was more civilized centuries ago, when gay people were given respected roles in their tribes.

Stop repeating the Big-Lie about the SCOC and Ontario Court that was forced to be PC and allow 2-person of the same gender to have marriage status.

Please show me just 1 piece of any Document used by the SCOC or Ontario Court ruling that deemed the issue as "Gay-marriage".
I say this because nobody is expected to Prove they are gay to get the same-gender status for marriage , and now that 2-person's can be married if they really 'Like' each other....will you allow 3 or more Person's to have the same Rights as gays.

It was only a Gay-marriage debate in your mind.
