Botswana decriminalizes homosexuality

Botswana decriminalizes homosexuality

Botswana’s High Court on Tuesday ruled in favor of decriminalizing homosexuality, which is outlawed under the country’s 1965 penal code. Judge Michael Elburu ’set aside’ the ’provisions of a Victorian era’ and ordered the laws be amended. Before the verdict ruling, 28 out of 49 countries in sub-Saharan Africa had laws penalizing same-sex relationships.

Good. Homosexuality between consenting adults should not be a crime. But expression of non-reproductive relationships in public spaces, should be a crime. Children need to be protected from the taint of non-reproductive debauchery.

I’m a conservative married straight Christian man, and I believe more liberty is ALWAYS better, ALWAYS RIGHTEOUS. Unless it deals with national security. The only real job of a government. We are all sovereign individuals under God. Those who hath not sinned cast the first stone, God will judge us all. Do not be fooled for God’s own words describe homosexuality as an abomination, though as Jesus taught us we must not hate the sinner but lament the sin. Praise Jesus as we continue to fight for liberty for all. We need free speech to spread, we need the 2nd amendment to spread to sovereign peoples. I wonder if this has something to do with Trumps initiative to decriminalize homosexuality globally.

Homosexuality shouldn't be criminalized but marriage should stay between a man and a woman.

At this point, I’m not excited for LGBTQ+. Intolerance on the left has soured my perceptions of the community as a whole.

It's funny how all the focus on changing laws goes on things that really don't need altering

I hate to say it but it’s the tip of the spear. I guarantee in 20 years there will be a guy dressed up as a unicorn at your door demanding to have pedophelia respected. Mark my words.
