No Headway for Homosexuals in Cameroon despite

 In a statement, the Public Affairs Department of the Embassy of the United States has expressed disgust at Cameroon officially to decriminalize homosexuality. According to the state, the US Embassy expressed it wish that if the diplomatic mission welcomes efforts that Cameroonian authorities continue to perform to boost socio-economic development and modernization of the economy, as reflected the vision in 2035, and approves very optimistic about the objectives contained in the Strategy Document for Growth and Employment (DSCE), especially as she thinks the process of their implementation requires a national effort, including the full participation of all Cameroonians. Which according to the statement needs significant contribution and participation of all Cameroonians, it is therefore imperative that everyone involved should enjoy in full measure all the fundamental freedoms enshrined in the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.
And be a little more clear: "As we approach the International Day against Homophobia date is not specified, note], we recall that human rights are a matter of everyone, without distinction of race, religion, ethnic origin or any other sensitivities, including sexual preference. " The Embassy of the United States subsequently adopts a threatening tone, even if done so secretly, as is customary in diplomacy.  A pluralistic society can truly prosper when each member recognizes and respects diversity. "...
Yet sources say two young men from Cameroon, who were freed from prison and acquitted from being convicted of ‘appearing homosexual’ in January, have been re-arrested. Jonas Singa Kumie and Franky Djome we gathered were re-arrested as they went shopping on Sunday March 24, at the Essos market in Yaoundé, dressed in women’s clothes.
It is also alleged that some suspected homosexuals in Douala were also on heat as the population almost melted jungle justice on them.

Religious condemnation of homosexuals often comes from a 3,000 year old Biblical text, written at a time when people rubbed two stick together to make a fire. Many conservative Christians and Muslims use this ancient text to persecute and deny homosexuals basic human rights. It is impossible to change the majority of these people. What is to be done while homosexuals are raped, murdered and persecuted. This is against the United Nations Charter of Rights and Freedom. We need other approaches. My approach is to cite the scientific evidence that homosexuality is a normal sexual diversity that is as old as heterosexuality and is evidenced in every country of the world.

I blog and comment as follows giving links to Psychiatric sites in the U.K, America, Pan-America, China mainland, Hong Kong, Lebanon, India, South Africa, Australia and Europe. Here are the scientific facts.
Psychaiatrists world wide state that homosexuality is NOT a) a disease b) a mental illness or c) a perversion. They further point out that homosexuality cannot be changed, thereby laying to rest the claims that it is a lifestyle chocie. It is not! We would like President Paul Biya and others to lay politics aside, and do the right thing. I think the scientific approach and the law will NOT eradicate religious fanaticism, but it will at least give moderate religious persons of good will, something to think about. I blog for lesbians on
