Remember this?

Someone reminded me of this. Seems like it was so long ago. 
Uganda: Mufti Sheikh Ramathan Shaban Mubajje Wants Gays Abandoned on an Island in Lake Victoria Until They Die

The Mufti, Sheikh Ramathan Shaban Mubajje wants gays marooned on an island in Lake Victoria until they die. Sheikh Mubajje told journalists on Friday at Old Kampala Mosque that he sold his proposal to President Yoweri Museveni when they met last week at Hotel Africana.
“I asked President Museveni to get us an island on Lake Victoria and we take these homosexuals and they die out there,” Sheikh Mubajje said during a press briefing after Idd el Fitr prayers.
“If they [gays] die there then we shall have no more homosexuals in the country.”
According to some Muslim clerics who attended the meeting, Mr Museveni never commented on the Mufti’s proposal of marooning gays.
Sheikh Mubajje said homosexuality could lead to moral decay in the society if left to blossom.
“Homosexuality led to the destruction of the whole generation of Prophet Lut and such behaviours could be devastating to our generation as well. We join other religions in the fight against homosexuality,” he said.
The Mufti’s statement correlates with recent plans by the Muslim Tabliq youth to form what they called an ‘Anti-Gay Squad to fight homosexuality in the country.
Sheikh Multah Bukenya, a senior cleric in the Muslim Tabliq sect recently said the vice is widely spreading among the young generation.

“We are ready to act swiftly and form this squad.It is the work of the community to put an end to bad practices like homosexuality.” he said.
Ahem, ahem!

That was a long time ago. October 2007

The same Mufti, well, he was at this conference which came out strongly backing the government. Of course, even the Catholic Archbishop and the Orthodox head was there. Orombi? I dont know...

No, the 'final solution idea' was not new....!

So the MURDERERS are grasping at righteous straws (still)? One of their arguments that I find so amazing is that IF, and I mean IF because much of the crap that religious extremists spread is pure LIES meant to scare people (who will then in turn HATE people like us), there are so MANY young peole in schools who are practicing Homosexuals...well, guess what, they will go underground and still be practicing HOMOSEXUALS and most probably even join any ¨squad¨ to ¨appear¨ differently than they REALLY are...I keep wondering when the Mufti and his buddies are going to have the REAL LIFE conversation about LGBT people throughout the know the conversation/work shop where they can be enlightened with REAL FACT (and personal testimonies from those who won´t have to fear being sent to their deaths)...gathering 3rd rate garbage from American relgious fanatics who are descredited outcasts within their own faith communities usually, isn´t going to help the RELIGIOUS LEADERS of Uganda get information that might, just might, help them move away from ignorant supertitious taboos and wild asses assements on how to DEAL with the LGBT reality! Guess what? These religious prancers/yackers are exposing themselves to a greater spiritual danger than they think exists with LGBT Christians, Muslims and others...these potential murderers of innoncents ought start listening to REAL EXPERTS and pay attention to the Commandments that clearly state THOU SHALT NO KILL, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS SELF...the fabricating, the lieing, the unholy deflecting of Governmental crime and corruption by KILLING fellow citizens won´t fact, it backfires!
