Kenyan court rules anal exams to test sexual orientation are legal

A Kenyan court has upheld the use of anal examinations in attempts to determine a suspect’s sexual orientation. Homosexual acts are a crime in Kenya, bringing possible prison sentences of up to 14 years.

Some might find the terms anal examination and/or anal probe graphic enough, but, to be clear, some consider it a form of torture. In fact, a U.N. special rapporteur on torture wrote this in a report in January: “In states where homosexuality is criminalized, men suspected of same-sex conduct are subject to non-consensual anal examinations intended to obtain physical evidence of homosexuality, a practice that is medically worthless and amounts to torture or ill-treatment.”

How long until this used to apologize for Islams treatment of gays? It is sad but does not change one thing about Islam.

The post 2 above this one has already mentioned religion.

are gays in Kenya required to use the missionary position? its funny-some countries don't seem to think much of "rights" that we have in this country. Just like many in this country will get upset with Kenya's blatant disregard of what most of us see as a fundamental right of privacy, yet are ok with intrusions on other rights.

You seem to be the one obsessed with Islam for bringing it to an absolutely impertinent topic.

Yeah, tell me that the guy who came up with this law isn't secretly gay. I bet he volunteers to perform the cavity searches himself.

He demands that all the inspectors "inspect him" to make sure they are doing it right.

Awareness is not obsession, and as I said, you blamed missionaries. That is a religious reference. So is my post.

Mass targeting all Christians and wrong.

Actually, that's perfectly fine. I think more than a few will insist we're all to blame. This often comes from the same people who immediately defend all things Islam.

Considering the influence of far right wing evangelicals who have been quite busy in Africa, these laws may not have been passed.

Check and see how many Christians -Govts in Africa support this.
Blaming Islam for everything, you blame for everything and it gets tiresome.

You had better re-read my post. I said someone would use this story to defend Islam. You just did.

You were not defending, you were attacking.
Come on now.
Man up.
