KENYA: “Stone The Gays” Bill Introduced

Kenyan legislators have introduced a bill that could result in death by stoning for those convicted of homosexuality. Via Pink News:

The bill’s author, Edward Onwong’a Nyakeriga, said: “The petition aims at providing a comprehensive and enhanced legislation to protect the cherished culture of the people of Kenya, legal, religious and traditional family values against the attempts of sexual rights activists seeking to impose their values of sexual promiscuity on the people of Kenya. There is need to protect children and youth who are vulnerable to sexual abuse and deviation as a result of cultural changes, uncensored information technology, parentless child developmental settings and increasing attempts by homosexuals to raise children in homosexual relationships through adoption, foster care or otherwise.”

The bill also includes a life sentence for running a “homosexual brothel,” which the above-linked article notes could be used to target anybody who lives with a gay person. According to Wikipedia, 83% of Kenyans identify as Christian. (Tipped by JMG reader Lulu)
