Thinking more about what tangible thing can be done to help African LGBT people.
I think most congresspeople will either ignore a letter (conservatives) or might be inspired to shine light on the topic (Liberals). So maybe writing letters, or inspiring others to do so, to liberal politicians. Such as those in my state, WA.
Here is y search on the White House petition website. I don't see anything on Africa related to LGBT people. Also, there is only one topic on LGBT people, which relates to ENDA. There is no mention of this in immigration topics.
So I think there is no White House petition regarding the plight of LGBT people in either SubSaharan Africa or Muslim countries.
I think it would be good to start a White House petition. Some of the petitions are by crack pots, and some are serious. I will ponder this a bit. Any thoughts or comments?
Abuse from the Egyptian government as well.
Egypt Court Sentences Four Gays to Prison
A court in Egypt sentenced four men to up to eight years in prison on Monday for practicing homosexuality, a judicial official said.
Prosecutors had accused the men of holding "deviant parties" and dressing in women's clothes. Three were sentenced to eight years and the fourth to three years in prison.
Prosecutors have used a law banning "debauchery" to try homosexuals in the past.
Those accused of homosexuality are often forced to undergo medical tests to establish they are "habitual" gays, a practice rights groups have decried as abusive.
Homosexuality is not tolerated across the Middle East and much of Africa.
Interesting take on the right of anyone to marry:
I just wonder if Mr. Lively is having a very strong internal struggle with his own same sex desires. So many people who are so committed to the hatred of a certain lifestyle or group in reality are bringing their internal struggle into the open by professing irrational hatred for that group. They fall hard when they are caught out but that is no consolation for all of those killed or maimed by their actions.
Makes you wish there was a place such as Hell so that this group of offensive people would have a place to go.
