Gambia To Kill All Homosexuals

The President of Gambia, Yahya Jammeh, has stated that he will "cut off the head" of any homosexual caught in his country. This is part of his plan to clean up his country and make it one of the best places in the world to live. He stated that his country is made up of people that believe in God and that immoral and sinful acts like homosexuality would not be tolerated.

He has promised that legislation stricter than that of Iran will soon be introduced. But his legislation will not only vilify the homosexual, he also promises that anyone that houses or helps homosexuals would also be in violation of the law and would also be dealt with.

It is so very difficult for me to respond to this. Now I know I sometimes (well, oftentimes) say things about our president. But OMG, he hasn't tried to kill off his own citizens. Hard to believe that things like this still happen.

I'm waiting now to see the response from the international community. There is no way he will be able to get away with this. I'm afraid for all LGBT people that live in Gambia.
