By the Power of Gay Skull!

Devil worshiping Ugandan grave robbers with a yen for putrefying heads, and homosexual rights in the West…what’s the diabolical connection?

It’s an important question, and one we all find ourselves asking sooner or later. And only this extra special little report from is courageous enough to give the world the straight poop:

“It seems globalisation will not stop at seeking recognition of only homosexual rights, but perhaps grave robbers will also soon ask for their rights too as they increasingly become a global phenomenon.

As our homosexuals find it easier to seek asylum in the west on account of their persecution, the suspected skeleton robbers that were arrested in Kayunga, now out on bail, may soon also seek refuge in the capitals of our ‘more developed’ world.

This is the era of rights, you see.

Of course. As you persecute homosexuals, dear Uganda, they apparently flee to, um, America I guess, and then “traditional healers” in your country desecrate your graves and snatch your rotten heads (traditionally) to work some werid-ass hoodoo-mojo…and it’s somehow all the persecuted homosexual’s fault. In the West. Because of “rights”.

It’s all so clear now!

"As you persecute homosexuals, dear Uganga..."

Adrian, their *real* argument is stupid enough without your intentionally misrepresenting it. They're not saying grave robbing is the fault of homosexuals, and you know it.

Their argument is: the west tries to tell Uganda what's right and wrong with regards to homosexuality, and defends homosexuals by offering them refuge. They argue that this is western cultural imperialism. To illustrate the point, they offer the absurd idea of the west offering support and refuge to grave robbers.

It's stupid because we have every right to attempt to influence other countries to, oh I dunno, let women vote, stop FGM, eradicate poppy production, allow free elections, and all sorts of other things that we think are important. Just because our country is militarily and economically powerful doesn't mean we can't hold and advance moral arguments and actions.

Still, I wonder what Charles Mudede would say.

This post is less coherent than the Ugandan editorial cited...

...And these are the same dumbasses that are taking over the Anglican church. Isn't it interesting how bigots will let their homophobia trump their racism when it comes to their flavor of fairy tale?
