The website Box Turtle Bulletin has just learned that the Rwandan Parliament is scheduled to take up consideration of a change to Rwanda’ penal code which would criminalize homosexuality with a punishment of five to ten years. It would also ban counselling and advocacy that could be interpreted as “encouraging or sensitizing” people to enter into same-sex relationships.

Two words come to mind: “bullies” and “cowards”

In the case or Rwanda and Uganda, these tough guys (probably closeted homosexuals fighting inner ‘demons’) are picking on a defenseless minority for political gain. How easy it must be to build a political career by destroying others.

I guess now that Hutus are not killing Tutsis, Rwanda needs GLBT people to fill the violence vacuum. Has this nation learned nothing of its past attempts to “cleanse” society?
