Uganda - U make me sick.

Today I am disgusted with humanity. Here's a doozy that I think all the world needs to see:

The Times Online published the following article on November 28: Uganda proposes death penalty for HIV positive gays.

This is worse than the story I posted back in April about the Afghan women who were pelted with stones during the protest against the passing of the law that forbids women to refuse to have sex with their husbands.
How low can humanity go?
I think small minded people don't realise that being gay is NOT a lifestyle choice. Humans are social creatures who crave attention, love and acceptance. Some can't deny who they are simply because others don't approve. A lifetime in jail for loving someone? A death sentence if loving that person made you ill?
Where does it stop? With the old, the feeble, the infirm, the mentally challenged, the mentally ill, short, tall, obese, under-weight, blonde, brunette?
I say this kind of behaviour is disgusting and should be slammed by world leaders. Remove Uganda from the Commonwealth and threaten total sanctions and complete lack of aid until sanity is heard.
The world will certainly be a poorer place if this law is passed.
