This publishers of this paper seem incapable of learning from past mistakes..


The Ugandan tabloid Red Pepper has returned to a vicious, irresponsible journalistic practice that preceded the murder of gay activist David Kato — publication of names of people who are allegedly homosexual.

This past weekend, the tabloid Red Pepper published names of people who it alleges “recruit” others into homosexuality.  The front page of the newspaper proclaimed that it had compiled a list of “Top Uganda Gay Recruiters.”

The bizarre idea that homosexuals “recruit” people into their sexual preference is a common theme in Uganda.  The New Civil Rights Movement calls it “a decades-old lie planted by the anti-gay right.”

In late 2010, the Ugandan tabloid Rolling Stone famously published names and photos of alleged homosexuals, including Kato.

    Thank you for reblogging this, my friend. The world needs to be aware of this tragedy. Unfortunately, this situation is supported by so-called evangelical “Christian” bigots and homophobes from the West. The responsibility for this abuse of human rights extends beyond the borders of Uganda.
