President Barry Obama has imposed sanctions on African countries that do not endorse gay marriage. Uganda is the first African country to be get punished for upholding traditional family values laws.
The BBC News reports that, "The US has imposed sanctions on Uganda for anti-gay laws it says are "counter to universal human rights". It said Ugandans involved in human rights abuses against gay people would be banned from entering the US."
A few years ago, Time Magazine declared Obama, "America's first gay president," on its cover.
According to the BBC News, "The White House is also cutting funds to a number of programmes it is running with the Ugandan authorities, and cancelling a military exercise. Uganda has said it will not be pressed by the West to change the laws, which can see gay people jailed for life."
African countries fighting for conservative values can no longer do business with American companies, since Obama has forbidden it.
