Cameron threat to dock some UK aid to anti-gay nations

BBC : David Cameron has threatened to withhold UK aid from governments that do not reform legislation banning homosexuality (Malawi, Uganda, Ghana) :
"Reacting to the news, Uganda Radio Network journalist, Charles Odongpho, said he was puzzled by the move.

"I welcome any move to pressure our government to be respectful of democratic values and human rights but speaking as a Ugandan I think we have much more important issues to deal with than the rights of homosexuals.

"This is your money and you know where you want to put it but we face very serious issues of corruption, poverty, education and hunger. These are the most critical issues for us, not homosexual rights."

Comment by Paris Gay : This reaction is wrong, Charles Odongpho : it is not because there are other serious issues that LGBT rights should continue to be ignored or trampled upon. Moreover, respecting the right of minorities, such as gays, is the beginning of a culture of respect and concern for others, which means that there will be faster progress on other issues you mention, such as corruption, poverty, education and hunger.
