Facebook In Shocking Plan To Ban Uganda Over Anti-Gay Laws?

Reports have it that Facebook is about to ban Uganda over its stance on homosexuality.

Yes, they plan to block every Ugandan over the fact that the country has instituted a law it doesn’t like.

According to the site Ghafla! Facebook has been lobbied by pro-gay activists in the US and well is now allowing itself to be used as a tool to punish Ugandans over a law passed in that country.

If this is true this sets a dangerous precedent and moves the site from being something for everyone, a democratic space, to an imperialist tool. Think back to when British Prime Minister David Cameron said that his country would withhold aid from countries which had laws that the west did not like with particular reference to homosexuality –  not that we think African states should be accepting aid.

Now without speaking much about homosexuality what says that suddenly, we are not going to have Facebook banned because a country has not elected a president favourable to Facebook and its handlers. It will start with Facebook and then be escalated. Mind you, Zimbabwe has been subject to sanctions because it has a president that the west does not like. But we digress.

If Facebook goes ahead with this ridiculous idea then that will be a straight-up middle finger gesture to sovereignty.

We hope this is just a rumour.

    this wont happen, they have not stopped in saudi arabia or any other muslim country such as afghanistan and pakistan who have the same laws in areas controlled by radicals! which is all most the whole country in all cases. plus they get a lot of money by gay people posting their persecution on their site! just like they raked in quite a bit of money during the arab spring! on the other had it is uganda which can shut down facebook in their country e.g. china and north korea!

    • We think it is just someone waving their willies to be honest

      • Truth hurts, Lies hurt more

        Would that be the people waving their willies about to get attention to their site by posting unsubstantiated rumours?
        Logical athiest makes much more sense and the writers should probably have looked for more substantiation for this article instead oof trying to stir up a hornet’s nest in order to bring more traffic to their site.

      People must understand that it is Christianity under attack not Islam so the fact that they did not ban muslim countries can not be used as an excuse
