Sata with Ban ki-moon pose for a picture
UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon poses for a picture with President Sata.His remarks about respecting Gay rights sparked much controversy in the country

by Mwansa Besa
We are it again. The call by the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon for people to respect gay and lesbian’s rights makes some interesting reading. It is also interesting noting how this call has brought to the fore a wide range of reactions from people from all walks of life. Since time immemorial the issue of homosexuality and lesbianism has always raised a lot of questions and answers not only in Zambia but the world over. History is rich with stories of influential and bright people whose lives took a bad turn when it was discovered that they were gay. Names like Alan Turing arguably one of the greatest mathematicians this world has ever seen comes to mind. Turing’s homosexuality resulted in a criminal prosecution in 1952.This was a time when it was illegal to perform homosexual acts in the United Kingdom. Justine Fashanu a former English player is another case of a good sportsman whose life changed for the worse the moment he came out to be gay. Both men ended up committing suicide.

I am not gay by any means but I support and welcome the call by Ban Ki –Moon because I find no reason in my heart why I shouldn`t respect how other people decides to live their lives. I can only have a problem if a gay person decided to shove his assets into me. Yes that no doubt can result into serious trouble. But if they do it in the privacy of their rooms and the act is between two consenting adults then I definitely have no reason why it should be any of my business. Sometime back I happened to meet one gay person who was open enough to share his experience with me. When I asked him why he was gay, his answer was like “What is the right sexual orientation anyway? And who said it is the right one?” That question caught me off-guard. I couldn`t find any right answers. I thought of pulling out my bible but the realization that I was dealing with someone who was an atheist made me to quickly drop the idea.

Going back in history it is worth noting that most of the persecutions and ethnic cleansings the world has witnessed started as a result of the majority thinking that the rights of the minority were not important. Good examples are the German Jews who suffered at the hands of Hitler and the still ongoing persecution of Hindus in Bangladesh.

Discriminating against gays and Lesbians who also happens to be in the minority is not any different. I think it is important to understand that we humans are complicated beings. What works for me might not work for another person. Hiding behind the bible in order to discriminate against our “abnormal” brothers and sister is not a good solution. Time we preached about love inspite of any differences. Talking about the bible, now I am wondering if that prostitute whom Jesus saved from being stoned could have been stoned if she so happened to be a Lesbian. Could Jesus have had allowed her to be stoned to death?

Discriminating against gay and Lesbian people is not any different from discriminating against people because of their different racial or cultural background because in all these cases the discrimination comes about because people find it a problem to accept what is different. Having had gone to school and worked with gay people, I have never had any problems with them. They are just as caring, hardworking, pay their tax and breathe the same air like any of us. What only makes them different is their sexual orientation. Perhaps I should ask you my fellow bloggers. If your son or sibling was to confront you one day and tell you that he is gay, can you reject or love him less?

Time we learnt to respect and embrace people with a different outlook about life. It is also important to remember that these are victimless crimes.

  1. Leviticus 20:13 says “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of the have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

    This clearly shows that gayism is not a human right and is not even allowed. This was what led to the destruction of city of sodom. I pray the govenment will not go for this.

    • mmmm Mwami bushe r all zambians xtian now -and shud they all aspire to be xtian-then where is the democracy-and who r we to caste the first stone-all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God-how is homosexuality different from adultery? -respect pipos choices even if they do not conform to ur values-tolerance is something that democracy shud fight to uphold.

    • Leviticus also says you shall not eat pork – that means bacon, ham, pork sausages, pork chops, pork belly, munjiri etc. It also says you shall not cut your hair. It also says a menstruating woman shall not prepare food. Do all Zambians abide by these rules? Do you?

  6. Gay rights is not merely allowing people to declare publicly they are gay but they should have same rights as married people in terms of tax benefits,right to adopt,etc..in short, laws have to be changed to accomodate gay partners like they apply for married man and woman .Do we really want such nonsense in Zambia? However I know person who I went to school with at UNZA is now Gay and I feel no different towards him except I feel sad for him.I do not respect him less as a person though.

  12. I agree that our we should not judge our brothers and sisters who practice homosexuality. But to allow it is like allowing adultery to go unpunished? Would this work in our society? Even adulterers meet in private. But they face consequences once caught.  Even murderers kill in private, thieves steal in private, etc. We have to be careful about what we will tolerate or else our society will decay.

  13. Sex is indeed logically supposed to be practiced between a man and woman because there is a fruit of that effort… A CHILD…which is indeed good for the continuity of the human race. The bible and God are clear about this…but again this doesnt mean anything to non Christians…
    However, people that have decided to go against this (gay people are not born BUT decide to be gay-my opinion-free will)have sinned in the eyes of God, just like molesters, MMD, drunkards and myself…we should all be sent to jail in Zambia, our Christian Nation!
    My point is this, we need to remove the tree in our eyes to see this issue clearly…denying these people their right to committ sin doesnt make us holy when no one is denying us our right ku tolling from our popular niteclubs in Zambia…God help us

    • Just thought I should correct you here. Not all people who wish to have sex expect nor do they want or need babies!!! I have seen barren women and men whose “little soldiers” can’t swim but enjoy sex just as much as people who want and can have babies.

      In fact humans are probably the only intelligient animal species (except a few monkey species) who engage in sex just for the enjoyment of it. Most animal species only have sex when it is time to make babies, the rest of the time they abstain—–ka poofoo! there goes there goes your theory, up in smoke!!!!

  14. I have always been anti gay but this article seems to slightly move me and almost make me sit onthe fence. I’m interested in two points the write has made. The first one is about what pipo do in privacy being private.Spot on! If somoeone whats to do whatever they want to do away from the eyes of the public, fair enough. I’m sure this happens even at the very moment despite there being a law that forbids it. Point two is the writer saying he decided to drop the idea of using the bible as he spoke to the gay person cause he realised he was dealing with an eathiest. Well, I dont quite agree with this point. In muslim countries where they use Sharia law, they use the muslim priciples to rule their countries and it doesnt matter whether you are non muslim. So this should be the case for us 2

  21. @S.M.M The very same Bible asks us not to judge others and just so you know,chritianity is a personal relationship between a person and God himself. We will all die one day and we will be judged, so let God judge the gay pipo. according to christianity, we do not have the right to judge the other person. what parliament needs to do is ve a debate that will bring out reasonable answers other than Leviticus 20:13.FYI,some christian nations around the world recognize gay rights and Zambia is not a special christian nation.Wake up to reality [email protected]#

  22. Finally we have somebody who is using his brain to analyze this issue. We are so myopic we don’t see the big picture. For as long as we don’t allow gays to come out we are placing our children and the vernables in harms way. How many of us know whether our children’s teacher’s are gay or not yet they spend 8 hours a day with our children. If they are open about their sexuality we can make informed decisions as to whom we allow to watch over our kids. Kudos to besa for this article and abash anti-gay myopic people.

  23. Just because people believe that something is moral or not it doesn`t mean that their belief is valid. History holds many examples of shared beliefs on what is “good” or “right” that we can now cleary see were detrimental to the well-being of various individuals and groups.The fact that a belief about morality is widely held or even shared does not give it validity.Jesus preached about love for one another.Why not just do that ?

    how you react to them. Much of what is difficult about difficult situations, is not the situation itself, but how you react to it.Have you ever made a situation worse by overreacting? and that is exactly what most Zambians are doing, Have you heard the saying “Energy Flows Where Attention Goes?” that’s whats happening right now, haven’t you all noticed how the cases of defilement and rape have increased 100% why? simple “Energy Flows Where Attention Goes? you are creating more off what you don’t want!!!1

  36. But it honestly doesn’t make sense for people to say homosexuality is a choice. How does one honestly choose to belong to the most hated society where you constantly have to hide you feelings and being because of shame? Let us not judge here people. This is consential sex between 2 adults and not with an animal or a child. As long as its done with respect for the other non-gay people and in private and don’t see why anybody should have a problem with it. Actually only people with serous sexual issues have problems with gay people

Please do not judge others only the Good Lord will judge them on their judgement day so let them keep on sinning and face the wrath on that day. I feel being Gay is very un natural maybe we need scientisits to explore more on this issue let the gays come out so we can hear their story. we should not rush to castigate there is sure no smoke without fire

  38. MWANSA BESA – Thank you for your refreshing viewpoint and intelligent review of the subject. In Zambia, people see everything through the moral looking-glass – the problem is they do that even before they have trully examined for themselves what is moral and what isn’t. Zambians must look at homosexuality intelligently and in an adult manner. As a country we have steadfastly progressed as a stable political democracy – and that is why now we have more socio-political issues being discussed than ever before in the life of our young country, people are free to express themselves. It is therefore an illogical conflict of principle that in such a democracy, a group of people (homosexuals) are literally being denied the right to exist. Nobody has the right to another’s human rights.

  39. Mwansa is either and advocate of gay and lesbians or he is a practitioner himself.How can he fail to answer a question like”what is the right sexual orientation”?It is simply a simple matter of logic.It is a deviation of the mind when “like poles” attract.Only “opposite poles”attract.When a man gets sexually attracted by a fellow man or a woman by a fellow woman,then you have reprobate minds.It also means next you will be demanding to have sex with beasts/animals and you call it your way of life and a right.Where shall it all end?

    That is why mankind has always needed laws to regulate behavior bacause if left to your own
    devices,everything is right in your own eyes/mind/heart.What a society we would have.

    Look here, a cleft palate is a deformity and nobody can deny it not even you, Besa. But it can surgically be corrected. Maligned sexuallity alias gayism is a deformity and eforts must be made by gifted people help our brothers and sisters to avoid losing brains like Alan Turin and Fashanu unnecessarily. Gay people themselves will never accept their deformity but you know it, Besa, from the analogies given above about bolts and nuts that it cannot be denied that gayism is a deformity and it knows no colour, religion, intelligence or profession.

    and 1300 years of Muslim practices, 4000 years of Jewish practices, 2000 + years of Hindu practices, 4000+ years of Zoroastrianism practices, 6000+ years of Egyptian theological practices, 4,400 years of Buddhist practices…So all of you using religion to answer it in whatever moral way you deem fit must be as lame as religion itself.

  48. I am content with the provisions of the Zambian law on gays. If we decide as a nation, to sit back and not uphold our laws and good values, then we are truly in support of those that are perverting and we are party to what they do.
    I wish to remind the writer when he refers to the Bible that when Jesus facilitated the unstoning and subsequently pardoned the prostitute, she was told not to do it again.

      How about this. 1) Automatic refugee status for any Gay Zambian who wishes to go to the USA 2) Not increasing the number of Zambian visas, so that when Zambians living in the USA wish to bring family members will have to wait behind those that their nation has abused.

  49. Very good article Mwansa Besa…some sense at last… a contrast to the homophobic comments and articles that have been spewing on Zambian websites and social network. Zambians are unable to debate this subject objectively, when you engage them into a debate its a case of one being either you are against homosexuality OR you (In support) being accused of being  gay. 
    As for politicians no one has the balls or courage to come out and champion basic human rights for fellow human beings only KK has come out in support of UN chief as one Wiseman once said “A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.”

    • Even a gay person can be prosecuted for pedophilia just like a straight person can. Look up the meaning of pedophilia—-it is a sexual act performed by an adult on a child (minor) who, for intents and purposes, can not legally concert to sexual intercourse—that is, gay or straight!

      At least if you compared rape to pedophilia since both are sexual crimes based on forced-sex, then you would sound a bit mature and grown up. Unfortunately your emotions are blinding you on this one brother!

  57. It is amazing how some people reason and argue, with so much disrespect to logic and wisdom.
    Homosexuality is wrong because it is SIN, and should not be allowed in Zambia.
    Shcking to see some people argue that religion should not be used on the issue; well suppose all zambians were all non-christians. Homosexuality would still be wrong because it is jusk like other wrongs like adultery.
    Human rights tell you that if two people agree to do something and it does not affect anyone, then it is OK. From this point of view homosexuality can never be right, because it will always, just like adultery, affect someone.

    This question is the same as, if your daughter or son or brother, or sister is involved in homosexuality why are you offended as parent or brother or etc??
    These two questions are the same – i.e. if it is justfiable for a husband to be offended with his adulterous wife by virtue of his relationship with the wife, then the father entitled to be offended by his homosexual son by virtue of his relationship with his son.
    Therefore, in the context of africa (and probably everywhere in the world) it is not possible to prove that there is no single person offended by an act of homosexuality committed by someone.

    This means that if a person commits adultery it is not impossible in court to prove that there is atleast one person offended ; the husband of course (who is the closet relation will be offended). Therefore the act is an infringement and an offence.
    The same, if a person commits homosexuality, it is not impossible in court to prove that there exists atleast one person offended; the father/mother or children or siblings etc (who are closet relatives). Once this is established, then according to law, it is an infringment and therefore an offence.
    Can anyone here tell me that if two people committed homosexual acts and were discovered, they would prove that no single person would be affected or offended?

    If the husabands are entitled to be offended by their adulterous wives because of their relation, then parents and relatives are equally entiltled to be offended by their homosexual relative because of the relation they share.
    My conclusion is that even when you choose to be weaked and remove God in the picture, society still condemns the act of homosexuality in the same way, with the same effects as adultery.
    Therfore let us not talk like empty tins!!!!!!!!!

    • Your analysis is lame too.That example doesn`t belong in the reality but in the dream and delirium world.A father or mother doesn`t owe anything to his grown up son who happens to make his own decisions.Whether he is offended or not it doesn`t make any difference because the father just like his son has his own life to live.Each person will face his maker alone…a reason enough not to live another persons life.Being true to oneself is the most important.

Honestly they are much better things to concentrate on like maybe building more universities…O increasing nurses salaries etc. The government need to put this issue to bed. Its turning out to be a PR disaster. But am inclined to agree with the article especially on the issue of two consenting adults. the fact is that goes on in the bedroom next door is non my business. People need to be realistic these things happen everyday. Just because we dont here about them does not they dont exist. We need to have a grown up debate but now is not the time. The country faces a number of challenges perhaps we should concentrate on those.

    But let us pray for the theives to stop stealing.
    That would be total brain/action mismatch.
    Even Jesus did not condemn the woman caught in adultery; instead he forgave her sin and told her,
    “GO SIN NO MORE!!!”
    Jesus did not say because I love you I will embrace you, and you have the right to continue sinning I will still love you NO!!!!!
    “STOP IT, GO SIN NO MORE”
    That is christianity, not telling people, “you are free to sin, it is allowed, but I will be praying for you while you sin, its okay!!” – WHERE does that thinking come from, if at all it is called ‘thinking’??????

  71. #74 Oranje91,
    The same bible that says we should not commit homosexuality also says no adultery, or fornication. You ask why zambians are not discussing these other sins but only too much talk about homosexuality.
    I hope you know that all zambians are agreed that adultery, defilement and fornication are bad and the constitution condemns them and acts are always condemned. And no one has suggested that we start acknowledging defilers’, adulterous’ and fornicators’ rights – So where should the argument arise from about these??
    The reason why homosexuality is being talked about is that someone has suggested that we change what we have agreed about it and accept it a a right!! If you cant hear what I have said you are impossible.

    O dear, you just need to be alive, you dont need to be religious, or a christian to know what I have stated.

    You are making all sorts of disjointed arguments…
    1)your claim that an adulterous act/relationship will “offend” someone is true but what you fail to realise is adultery is morally & socially reprehensible but NOT ILLEGAL!!Correct if I am wrong,no Zambian has been imprisoned (in Zambia) for cheating on his/her partner where the sexual act or affair was between two CONSENTING ADULTS!

  75. #80 Munalian,

    I like your argument, but you seem to understand law and punishment to be ‘imprisonment’.
    Well, I can advise that not all convictions and punishments mean imprisonment.
    Adultery is an offence and punishable. Your question should be “what punishment”?
    An adulterous person is an offender by law and when convicted, is meant to pay the offended.
    I am getting shocked if you are a zambian living in Zambia and do not know this. Anyway, there is always the first time, it is good u asked this question – now you know.

  79. @wise people,
    I haven’t been to Zed for a decade so do forgive if my comments aren’t in tune with the current legal status.

    Having said that,I am inclined to think that the restitution you are referring to comes in place if/when the victim of a cheating spouse (usually the wife) seeks alimony in the divorce settlement -usually associated with child maintenance too!!

    On the other hand,someone who isn’t married and has no common assets and children with a partner will not suffer any kind of punishment if/when cheating happens!! If there is a law that punishes cheaters then the whole country will be made up of criminals!!

    • Bwana, even if you have been away from Zambia for decade, this is law probably everywhere else in the world. Adultry is and has always been between married people. At least one or both persons in a legally recognized marrital union has to cheat for it to be termed adultery. Cheating between unmarried people is called fornication—Jesus Christ! In fact, in certain countries even fornication is a crime!!

  80. It beggars belief that a person can just wake up one morning, inspite of all the hatred that they may face, decide to be sexually attracted to the same sex individuals. Is it possible to just turn on a switch to be gay or not to be gay? In me, there is not the slightest sexual attraction to a fellow BLOKE. If someone says that they are so affected, surely, who am I to condemn them? I may say that it is morally wrong yes, but so is heterosexual fornication, adultery, abortion, etc. Polygamy is outlawed in some societies but it is not morally wrong. Ah. Na naka ine.

  81. # 87 Smith,

    I agree with you totally, debate must be allowed.
    People will debate based on their convictions and beliefs.
    Therefore, it is wrong to tell someone not to use his religious beliefs to argue his case. If you stop people from using their religious beliefs to argue their case you are stopping them from expressing their views and beliefs.
    That is as good as defending your view which you dont want to be challenged. A drunkard who has squandered his salary will stop the wife fron aksing any questions because he knows the wrong he is in and wants to defend it by letting others shut up.
    This is why I say, “some people wnat to defend their wrong”.

  83. @wise people,
    You can’t compare homosexuality and paedophilia,theft and rape because these crimes involve one (or more) inflicting their will forcefully on others!! A homosexual act/relationship is private business between two CONSENTING ADULTS!!

    That act/relationship might offend some people,eg Christians,but that’s their problem,pray for the homosexuals if you want to but don’t condemn them since you too are a sinner!

    Therefore,your argument that the govt should implement “Christian values” is null and void coz NOT ALL Zambians are Christians!!the govt & society should protect minorities because that’s how a democratic notation functions!!

  85. I think there is a difference between, recognising gay rights and discrimination against gays.. I do not care what too concerning adults do in the confinements of their bedroom. In our society there are some people who for instance think that oral sex between a man and a woman is wrong and not natural and is ungodly as does not serve for procreation. Does than mean oral sex is a crime and should be so stated in our constitution especially considering that Zambia is a Christian nation? I don’t think so. Another scenario is lesbian sex as seen in the eyes of straight men. I stand to be corrected but I think a quite a number of us have watched lesbian porn and quite enjoyed it but we the same men cant stand the thought of gay porn. Is that not hypocritical?

    While the majority of Zambians are Christians,well…go to church on Sundays anyway,Zambia is SECULAR republic with a clear separation between church and state!! Our laws and constitution are enacted from the “social contract” between the governed & governors and NOT from the Bible!!! Politicians might take Christian inspirations but can’t discriminate non Christians since we have (had) Sikhs and Hindus in parliament & govt!!

    * most of it goes towards admin costs,exalted salaries and dictators’ swiss accounts!!the west uses “aid money” to maintain & propagate its influence!! Nol

    *Zambia can return the “aid money” cheques,develop its economy and therefore cease (like Brazil,China etc) to the tunes of UK,US,UN etc

It just shows you that majority of christian zambians are actually devils. Since zambia was declared a christian nation (by a thief, adulterer, wife grabber) the country has plummeted into moral decay!!! Young men raping their own grand-mothers, adultery being committed very publicly, men defiling babies and young children, married pastors impregnanting ushers mu church!

Now, it is as a result of Zambians’ pathological failure to adhere to these two commandments that we today have a catastrophic AIDS pandemic. And yet this most promiscuos lot claims the lord forbids copulation between same sexes but does not see wrong with disobeying him when it comes to fornication and adultery?

    Muslim countries (Saudi Arabia specifically) are the ones with archaic laws that punish “fornication”!! Remember that while you sex might be sacrosanct to you,it is just business for others…that’s why California,Nevada,Amsterdam etc have legalized prostitution and/or pornography!!!

  98. I’ve always known I was different. Due to Zambian society, culture & religion, I tried to hide it. As a result I ended up in one disastrous relationship after another with men. Seeing all the hatred on this page now I see the near impossibility of being free to be in love. After a long hard battle, I was finally able to reconcile my sexuality with my spirituality. I can’t say that I will definitely enter the kingdom of God; neither can any other human being. After all Jesus said it would be easier for a horse to enter the eye of a needle than for one to enter heaven. I think part of the reason is; just when u think u r justified in judging others, God’s compassion begs to differ. I know 2 things for sure; God has been good to me & only God can judge me.

    @ ZAMBIAN IN DISTRESS ABOVE ME. That is the correct reading of the verse, the one you wrote is a misquoting my dear. You can be loved by a real man. A lot of women turned lesbian after mistreatment from men, but real men that will love you treat you right, listen then watch Miami heat play are there just be patient. For men turning gay that’s another Greek, roman issue I will let people research for themselves.

    • Thank you for the correction and i apologize for the misquote. But here is a correction for you: I did not turn lesbian due to ill treatment from men…I was already a lesbian before i even started dating men. I was unhappy in relationships because i was forcing myself to be something i’m not…and I refuse to do that to myself any longer. Now i prefer to live by the principle, ‘love one another’ & ‘do not judge lest you yourself be judged’ (I’m sure i have not misquoted this time :) )

    Christianity was recognized as official religion of the Roman Empire in 330AD,after it reached Rome from Judea…meanwhile it’s practitioners were persecuted for 300 yrs…
    The Europeans took to the new world from the 1500s and reached Africa in the early 1800…
    Meanwhile,homosexuality has existed since the dawn of civilization;documented in the kama sutra (written in 400BC),seen on Egyptian hieroglyphs from as far as 2000yrs before the Bible was compiled…
    So…tell us…if those who have had Christianity for over 1700yrs can tolerate the few homosexuals among them,why can’t Africans who have been Christians for barely 170 yrs be tolerant???

So look around you, homophobic persons, you are surrounded by people who must suppress who they are in order to stay alive. Be sure that many of the loudest accusers are often the very ones who are having the suppress the most! Do you come from a large family with a dozen kids? Or are you the parent of as many? Guess what, at least one of them is LGBT. Do you want him or her thrown in jail for something they did not choose to for themselves? Religion has nothing to do with this, it is simply the diversity God has allowed for in human sexuality. Embrace it but do not use it to oppress or violate others—that IS sin.

That’s why he created a male and female among all living things including trees, plants, insects, animals, bugs, etc. Since when have you seen a bird, animal or snake go after a kind of the same sex. Sodom and Gomorah were destroyed because human beings opted to do the wrong. Anyone however there’s freedom of expression, is damned on this one. How I wish the old ways of punishment would apply now for we have taken the creator of every living entity for granted. I pray your wife is not even privy to this discussion. This is not freedom of expression. This is an abomination and a sin as far as God the creator is concerned for he created us this way for a reason.

Most so called homosexuals in Zambia just do it for money, not that they feel anything for their fellow men.  It’s just like prostitution, most of those doing this are not happy doing it, they do it for money.  Whether we believe it or not, like it or not, homosexuality is just as much a sin as prostitution.  When Jesus forgave that prostitute he added “…do not sin again”.  Meaning she should not continue prostituting because it is sin.

    On the other hand,sub-sahara had little contact with outside world before Arab traders and European adventurers came along in!!!

    In any case,irrespective of your history teacher,Christianity reached sub-sahara from the 1800s…so once again,why not be tolerant of the homos among us since others who have been Christians for longer can do it??

  116. Wise people,
    I am affected (and sometimes offended) by women in mini skirts,drunkards stumbling on my streets,sugar daddies going out with girls younger than their daughters….does this mean I should deprive these people of their right to do as they please??
    The benefits of living in an open & democratic society is we are ALL FREE to pursue our goals provided we don’t harm anyone else!! The fact is two homos sharing your bed doesn’t impinge your way of life!!!
    forget about your daughter coming home with her lesbian lover…what if she brings a boy you don’t like??will you scold her till she changes her mind?what if she runs away with him just to piss you off??

  117. You know Mwansa I actually agree with your article. As a straight male, I am repulsed by the thought of kissing another guy. But I am also capable of rising above my personal desires, and recognizing that everybody has the right to pursue their own happiness, and nobody should be persecuted for it. I rejoice in people having the right to be who they are.

  118. Do gay people realise that if their parents were gay? They would have been squized 9 months in scrotum rather than enjoy the comfort of their mothers the womb?:o:o:o:o

  119. Maybe Jesus if that woman about to be stoned was lesbian he could have had said “Chitobeni icho amabwe guys…ine nachilamona kwati chitobesha ku mimbulu kanshi awe” then the woman could have been like “ba yesu please” just for umwana wa mulungu to answer back ati “tiye uko iwe”.

  121. Smith, you can carry on being gay if you were born like that but remember that is a deformity. A bolt and nut can fasten. A bolt and a bolt cannot fasten and cannot even crave for one another neither can nuts.

    Get help Smith. It is already here if you really want it.

  122. # 128 Munalian,
    You are affected by all these things – women in mini skirts,drunkards stumbling on my streets,sugar daddies going out with girls younger than their daughters.
    You are affected by these because, just like me, you are a normal human being.
    But in tryig to let these people free to choose what they want are we now gona put in our constitution and say;
    1) Women shall have the right to wear minis
    2) Old men shall be free to get little children.
    3) Citizens shall be free to get drunk.
    4) Prostitutes shall be free to do prostitution, and worse
    5) thieves shall be free to steal.
    Is that how you want you constitution to look like????

  123. #131 NKANI YAMU KACHASU,
    I do not subscribe to the language and som of the words you have used but I agree with you view from which I ask one paraphrased question:
    If the parents to every homosexual in the world was homosexual would these so-called homosexuals exist today and enjoy the fundamental ‘Right to Life’???????????

  126. Very interesting to see all these comments from Zambians! Now it makes sense why Zambia is so poor! Ignorance!
    Homosexuality is not going anywhere! Anyone who has a problem with that may go hang themselves with wet toilet paper!

  128. being gay or Lesbian is Sin in the eyes of God, God had a reason to create a Man then later he created a women, he got a rib from a man that;s were a woman comes from, Lets respect God. As far as I know even the UN SG his married to a woman not a man, called dad by his children whom he has with his wife who is a women, lets respect and embrace Christianity. Let also respect our traditions not just because pipo in US practice gay or Lesbian then you also think is right; its very wrong. stand up and condemn this practise. I am proud to be a Woman and also proud to be married to a Man

  130. Rizzo! Agreed procreation requires the two sexes. However, it must be said that there are two creatures where sex is used as recreation and that is humans and the great apes particularly the Chimpanzee. Now we read that maybe Dolphins also use sex for recreation, though yet to be convinced. In other words if this is the case that is where you have this possibility of Gay and Lesbian tendencies in humans etc. Humans do not use sex just for procreation. In most other animals, females get to heat and the males respond by having sex to create the new generation. I think the problem here is that there is a tendency for the gay and Lesbian community to try and convince the rest of us that there is nothing wrong and to really shove it in our faces. Be more discreet!
