Ugandan court turns back anti-gay law

A court in Uganda has nullified the recent anti-gay law. The main argument seems to have been that there was not a quorum present in the legislature when the vote was taken.  The Guardian has a story by Daivd Smith, Africa correspondent, here.

But anti-gay laws remain in effect in a number of other African countries, most of all Nigeria, which has seen kidnapping of young women by "fundamentalist" thugs in the northern part of the country.

With Russia and Nigeria especially, there is a pattern than the passage of anti-gay legislation is predictive of horrors for others to follow.

Remember, the Nigerian president had actually complained about homosexual men not being attracted to women in his country and not giving the country babies.
