Uganda publishes gay list...calls for their murder....

Where's the western world in denouncing this???
A Ugandan newspaper published a story featuring a list of the nation's "top" gays and lesbians with their photos and addresses, angering activists who say the already marginalized group risks facing further attacks.

Earlier this month, Rolling Stone newspaper -- not affiliated with the U.S. magazine with the same name -- featured 100 pictures of Uganda's gays and lesbians. Next to the list was a yellow strip with the words "hang them."

The story comes about a year after a Ugandan lawmaker introduced a measure that calls for the death penalty or long jail terms for those who engage in some homosexual activities.

The proposal was shelved after an international outcry.

"For me, the first thing that crossed my mind was, 'how can this country allow such things to happen?" said Julian Pepe, who was also named in the story.

"They were calling for our hanging, they are asking people to take the law into their hands. We are all terrified."

The 29-year-old said she's a lesbian.

"I came out when I was 12, I have supportive parents who have been there for me," said Pepe, a program coordinator for Sexual Minorities Uganda.

Those named in the story are living in fear, she said. Some have had to change jobs and move to new places.

The "progressives " in this country would have Canada mute its displeasure at these thugs to gain a seat at their cherished council.

I presume Uganda along with the UAE didn't vote for Canada.
