Kenya Considering Its Own Harsh Anti-Gay Law

Apparently not to be outdone by its neighbor Uganda, the Kenyan legislature is now considering a bill that would impose life imprisonment for the “crime” of being gay and would allow stoning to death if you do that and you’re not a Kenyan citizen.

The Republican Liberty Party has proposed stoning of gay people to death in public or life imprisonment.

The party has presented to the National Assembly a draft Bill prohibiting any form of sexual relations between people of the same sex.

The Anti-Homosexuality Bill is now before the Justice and Legal Affairs committee which will consider the proposal and report back to members on its decision.

The draft Bill presented alongside a petition by the party’s legal secretary Edward Onwong’a Nyakeriga provides for the offence of sodomy which would earn life imprisonment.

They propose death by stoning in public for any foreigner who commits a homosexual act and a life imprisonment for Kenyan nationals found guilty.

The Republican Liberty party? You keep using that word…

    Gays, witches. If you are an interesting and unique individual …leave Kenya now!

    (Or if you have neighbors that don’t like you, or…)

    Tourism is a very important revenue source for Kenya. I don’t know about the rest of you, but this would discourage me from going to Kenya, and not just as a form of protest. It would be all too easy to use this law to shake down foreign tourists, “guilty” or not.

    If people from the west want to stop this law, all they have to do is vote with their feet and go elsewhere in Africa for safari.

    To be fair, homosexuals are pretty bad. Why, just last winter one of them ran down a mountain and wrecked my cabin! Or maybe that was an avalanche.

    In any event, like Kenya, I’m blaming the homos.

    I’m sure Scott Lively will be flying right over to Kenya to try and convince the Republican Liberty party not to include stoning to death in this law, the way he condemned the violence against gays in Uganda, because life in prison should be sufficient.

    I’m fairly certain he’s jacking off to the news.

    Yeah, Kenya. Start stoning foreigners to death. That’ll go over real well. Enjoy your diplomatic sanctions.

    I see Mr. Lively wishing he was able to jack-off to this news.

    I actually have no objection, as a gay man, to the Kenyan proposal, provided that they can find someone without sin to cast the first stone.
