Africans Protesting While Nude…Against Homosexuality

Now that song will be stuck in our head all week.Of course, a nude protest is probably better than one like this...Probably.Barack Obama might not have rung up his relatives in Kenya to tell them of his impending trip to his Father’s land, but the whole of Kenya already seems to know about the President of the United States touching down.

In fact, there are 5,000 protesters ready and waiting for Barack in their birthday suits.

Why the nude uniform? Well, the 5,000 feel that it is the best way to get across to President Obama that men and women are different.A clothed protest does have its charm, though.

You see, the predominate science states that men have a dingle dong and women have a hu-hu, a concept that Kenyans feel Obama is unable to grasp as evidenced by his pro-gay marriage tweet.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, the world we live in is this insipid.

The organizer of this anatomy showcase, Vincent Kidala listed his group’s intentions in a letter to the Nairobi Police Department, “The procession shall be carried out by approximately 5,000 totally naked men and women to protest the President Barack Obama’s open and aggressive support for homosexuality. The party’s main objective is for him to understand the difference between a man and a woman.”

Let's hope there's no fire bombs at this one.Of course, sodomy is considered a felony in Kenya, which can carry up to a 14 year prison sentence.

Speaking of which, as we’ve covered in the past, on the whole of the African continent homosexuality isn’t exactly celebrated.

Take Ethiopia. “Whoever performs with another person of the same sex a homosexual act, or any other indecent act, is punishable with simple imprisonment,” where ‘simple imprisonment’ ranges from 10 days to 3 years.

Comoros offers fines ($140 to $2,792) and up to 2 years in prison.Gambian President Yahya Jammeh addressing the UN. This might have been the speech where he called all gays vermin…

Gambia follows Kenya with the same 14 year prison sentence.

Apart from the homosexuals thrown off of building tops under the Muslim Brotherhood, today in Egypt, homosexuality is met with a fine and a one year detention.

Cameroon fines same-sex intercourse ($40 to $420) and also issues jail time running from only 6 months to 5 years. Burundi is about the same, with slightly less jail time.

The Criminal Code of Mauritius reads that, “Any person who is guilty of the crime of sodomy shall be liable to penal servitude not exceeding 5 years.”

Nigeria---not a great place to be gay.Swaziland, where skirts are banned, takes homosexuality as a common law crime, and Lesotho lists the act of sodomy as one that you can be arrested for without a warrant.

In Nigeria, a little same-sex PDA can land you in jail for 10 years. However, it should be noted that those regions under Sharia Law in Nigeria call for the death penalty for any sign of homosexuality.

Something to ponder, when an Oregon lesbian couple sues over a private bakery refusing to craft their wedding cake.

    Homosexuality is a very bad curse in our society and people badly need awareness about it and i will prefer online writing agency for raise awareness by essay. Well America is on the top for this curse and they should frame laws to stop it as soon as possible for a good society.
