James Buturo, the erstwhile Ethics and Integrity State Minister, is now just your average closed-minded gay-bashing guy. He is one of several MPs who were forced to resign their posts after running for office as Independent candidates without first resigning from their parties.
On his way out, he actually came up with what might be his best policy recommendation ever. He may have found a solution to the impending population crisis here in Uganda:
“Homosexuality in Uganda and Africa as a whole is a taboo. How can a man sleep with a fellow man or a woman with a fellow woman. How can they produce children?”
Excellent point, Mr. Buturo. Maybe everyone should become gay, at least for a few years, until the rampaging population growth gets under control (Uganda has the second highest population growth rate in the world, and nobody is talking about it).
And, of course, he had to make one more jab at western nations for “exporting” homosexuality to Uganda:
“if it is good and revered in their countries, they should not impose it on Ugandans or Africans in general.”
Uh, yeah…we in the west have so much to gain from turning Africans gay that it has become a primary State Department strategy. I have written about my views on this claim in my post Homosexuality in Uganda is Not a European Import – Christianity Is.
Mr. Buturo, I hope your replacement possesses some ethics and some integrity.
