Gra*phic Photo: Gay-man Burned to ashes by angry mob during daylight in Uganda, few days after Anti-Gay Bill was Adopted


Uganda has signed a bill that further bans homosexuality. Based on source, a man was even burned to death to be gay shortly. The bill's original 2009 version, named "Kill The Gays," went in terms of calling for the death penalty for many homosexual acts; that provision was shelved after international furore.

Under its latest iteration, anybody who conducts marriage ceremonies for same-se-x couples faces seven years behind bars. Failure to report homosexual activity to police can also be criminalized. Doctors who treat gays, landlords who rent them property and those suspected to be LBGTQ are at the mercy of five-year prison terms under the bill.

Full Update: US Senate bill authorizes sanctions on Russia or any other country offering Snowden asylum

US sanctions against any country offering asylum to Edward Snowden are unanimously approved in Congress by voice vote as an amendment to next year’s $50.6 billion diplomacy and international aid bill.

The measure introduced by Senator Lindsey Graham demands the State Department coordinate with lawmakers on setting penalties against nations that seek to help Snowden avoid extradition to the United States, where authorities want him prosecuted for revealing details of the government’s massive surveillance system, according to the Washington Post.
"I don’t know if he’s getting a change of clothes. I don’t know if he’s going to stay in Russia forever. I don’t know where he’s going to go," Graham said. "But I know this: That the right thing to do is to send him back home so he can face charges for the crimes he’s allegedly committed."

The U.S. Senate, after a decade of trying and failing, on Thursday passed a wide-ranging immigration bill that would put 11 million foreigners now living illegally in the United States on a path to American citizenship.

The U.S. Senate's vote passing a broad immigration reform bill fell two votes short of what some of its main backers had said was necessary to pressure the House of Representatives to act.
The Senate voted 68-32 for the bill, giving more than two-thirds support in the 100-member chamber. Earlier, backers said they were pushing to get 70 votes to help sway the more conservative House to consider it.
