More Countries Join Anti-Gay Movement

Singapore High Court
When gays, lesbians, transgender and bisexuals (LGBT) trumpeted their victory in American courts, they thought that they are winning the battle to uphold their intolerant lifestyle and “give-me-all-social benefits” attitude, but they failed to see the bigger picture.

With the right of majority of Americans to choose whoever they want to be associated with being trampled by a dictatorial court, other countries watch and learn from the mistakes and are trying to promote majority preference in their own turf.

One of the first countries to uphold what the people really want in the last two months is Singapore. The affluent country’s highest court ruled that a law that criminalizes sex between men is in line with the city-state's constitution.

Instead of rolling over and giving less than 1 percent of the population the right to impose their deviant behavior, the high court rejected two separate appeals by three men that the measure infringed their human rights.

Massage therapist Tan Eng Hong and gay couple Lim Meng Suang and Kenneth Chee Mun-Leon sought a repeal of the law, which prescribes a jail term of up to two years for men who engage in any act of "gross indecency", in public or private.

"Whilst we understand the deeply-held personal feelings of the appellants, there is nothing that this court can do to assist them. Their remedy lies, if at all, in the legislative sphere," said the judgment delivered by Court of Appeal judge Andrew Phang Boon Leong.

The court said the law, known as Section 377A of the Penal Code, passed a test to determine if it complied with the constitutional right of equality.

The second country, also in Asia, which took it a bit further by targeting unsolicited promotion of gay lifestyle is Kyrgyzstan.

A draft law banning "homosexual propaganda" in the Central Asian country is being hailed by most of its people as the only way to stem any attempt by gays to change Kyrgyzstan basic law and imposed their inhuman desires on the rest of the traditional population.

Backed by Muslim clerics who are just upholding psychological studies in the country that shows that homosexuals are "psychologically ill" and should be cured, the law follows what everyone wants everyone to impose: traditional and family-oriented environment.

The law would impose a one-year jail term for "forming a positive attitude to untraditional sexual relations" among minors or in the media.

The law's backers have made clear they expect it to go much further than the protection of minors or curbs on the media, and they predict a crackdown on a wide spectrum of lavish and immoral activities, such as gay rallies, clubs and cafes.

The law has already won initial approval in the first of three readings in parliament and will require President Almazbek Atambayev's signature to become law, which is expected to happen in due course after everyone have seen how American states that approved same-sex marriage are decaying socially, culturally and economically.

The next country expected to strengthen it moral values against the LGBT attempts will be Tajikistan.
