My media week 20/12/09

A while back I posted a link to a blog called, which is “dedicated to the dribble-spattered lunacy of BBC Have Your Say discussions.” Recently the BBC news website posted this question “Should homosexuals face execution?” If you go the link now, the question has been rephrased. It now says “Should Uganda debate gay execution?” Some of the comments reminded me of Jonathon Swift’s A Modest Proposal, where he suggested that the Irish should eat their children. Unfortunately I don’t these contributors were engaging in satire:

Homosexuality is not natural. It makes me very uncomfortable when you consider what it involves, although the death penalty is probably a little harsh.


I suggest all gays are put on a remote island somewhere and left for a generation – after which, theoretically there should be none left!


Homosexuals should not be executed. But homosexuality should be recognised for what it is – a perversion of natural sexual relations. Instead in our Godless humanistic society it is almost now being given some sort of protected and elevated status. Homosexual marriage is a travesty and an abomination. As is homosexuals in leadership positions in the church. One sign of a decaying society is the legitimising and the widespread practice of homosexuality. One of the major reasons for the fall of Rome.


Bravo to the Ugandans for this wise decision, a bright step in eliminating this menace from your society. We hope other African nations will also follow your bold step
