Another African country apparently is considering a Death to the Gays bill. Gay Star News reports:

A death penalty against homosexuality may be introduced soon in Ethiopia, according to anti-gay organizations that ran a recent workshop on the topic. The workshop, dealt with the social ‘evils’ and ‘disastrous’ effects of homosexuality in Ethiopia, and was led by United for Life Ethiopia, a Western Evangelical organization with local representation. Government officials, religious leaders, leading heath professionals, charities and members of the public attended the event at the Bethel Teaching Hospital in Addis Ababa, last week.

Once again, gays are being scapegoated by religious groups and government for the ills of society. Sickening.

    “United For Life” religious organization wants to murder people for being gay?! Read that again. Quite a contradiction don’t you think? If you want to believe it’s a sin to be gay, go right ahead. But your “bible” says thou shall not kill, thou shall not judge and those who do are worse sinners than the sinners themselves, do unto others as you’d have them do unto you, love thy neighbor, etc etc etc! If you pass this murderous bill, you are pure evil.
