Remember that scene in Love Actually where pretend British Prime Minister Hugh Grant sticks it to pretend President Billy Bob designer throughout a press conference? President Obama did that these days in world, expressing his concern over Kenya’s gay rights record, and therefore the struggle for gay rights throughout the African continent. He did this despite requests from Kenyan leaders to not discuss it during his 1st official visit to the country.
Homosexual activity is illegal in Republic of Kenya and punishable with imprisonment of fourteen years. Obama mentioned gay rights within the larger context of human rights and freedom, noting that “When you begin treating individuals different due to any harm they’re doing to anybody, however as a result of they’re completely different, that is the path whereby freedoms begin to erode.”
It is most spectacular that Obama did this for the record.
