Madonna condemns sentence of Malawi gay couple

Posted: 10:29 AM ET

via usmagazine.com

Madonna decries the ruling handed down Thursday in Blantyre, Malawi that will send a gay couple to prison.

"Today, Malawi took a giant step backward," the singer told UsMagazine.com in a statement. "The world is filled with pain and suffering; therefore, we must support our basic human right to love and be loved."

Tiwonge Chimbalanga, 33, and Steven Monjeza, 25, were convicted of unnatural acts and gross indecency and sentenced to 14 years of hard labor in prison.

Homosexuality is seen as an abomination in the South African country and most gays, lesbians and transgender people do not show public affections. The couple held an engagement party that was later splashed across the front page of a local newspaper. They were arrested two days later without bail.

According to the New York Times, Magistrate Nyakwawa Usiwa Usiwa said he was especially offended that the couple celebrated their relationship in public with an engagement party.

Madonna makes an excellent point. Everyone in this world deserves to love and be loved no matter their sexual orientation. There are so many problems in this world that need to be dealt with, this is not one of them. My heart goes out to these two innocent men and their families.

(YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT)

So if its a "Sin" then why does "God" put ESTROGEN in the NATURE FOOD SOURCE THEN, THATS CALLED AN ABUSIVE SET UP "FRAMED" the MALE person is subjected to HORMONAL ESTROGEN DEVELOPMENT THAT IS NOT THEIR CHOICE (AND SUBJECTED TO TERRORISTIC HARASSMENTS ) is proof that it is a NATURAL GLANDULAR/ GENETICS RE-ENFORCED INTERACTION, i.e. its in the "GOD" made ESTROGEN Food Source [REMEMBER GENESIS] " the vegetation is for meat i.e. Geneisis statement"

GENESIS 1:11-12, 29-31, 2:5-9 AS THE RASTA SAYS "THE HERB IS GOOD AND BLESSED BY GOD HIMSELF FOR FOOD , MEAT, AND MEDICINE." (BUT WHY DOES "GOD" INCLUDE ESTROGEN IN MOST KNOWN VEGAN FOOD SOURCES and the ones that dont have great amounts (ESTROGEN INHIBITING FOODS) have enzymes,minerals and other chemistries that both activate and enhance the active of the enzyme Aromatase (ENZYME IN MALES LIVER THAT CONVERTS TESTOSTERONE INTO ESTROGEN)

PARENTS FEED THIS TO THEIR KIDS (SONS) DAILY 24/7/365 (NATURAL VEGAN ESTROGEN) i.e. PLATES FULL OF ESTROGEN AM bREACKFAST/ NOON LUNCH/ NIGHT DINNER AND OTHE SNACKS

ESTROGEN IS IN THE VEGAN FOOD SOURCE :SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUALITY ( HUMANE CIVILITY ) NOT JIM CROW BLACK CODES, THIS INEQUALITY ANYWHER IS A THREAT TO ALL EQUALITY EVERYWHERE : CONDEMING OTHER PEOPLE CHILDREN, ITS IN "GOD" FOODS
...
It must be in the Food there "God" made for everyone to eat, ALL "GOD" made plants in genesis (Gene-Isis) contain Feminizing Sexual Influencing Estrogen. As a Degreed person of University Academia ,who uses the Scientific Methods of Research , Analysis, and Evaluation to separate facts from fiction I would like to hear your professional thoughts after you review the information yourself.

(Law Doctrines) JUDICIAL NOTICE OF LEARNED TREATIES :THAT SCIENTIFIC MEDICAL information knowned by the FDA/ AMA / APhA /DEPT OF AGRICULTURE FACT (DE FACTO) Marijuana (THC) Soy Bean Products, ALL Petroleum Products all around us (Plastics/Latex) found electronics food packagings house hold products AND Consumables ARE ESTROGEN FEMINIZING SAME SEX TENDENCIES.

GOOGLE WORD COMBONATIONS RESEARCH SUCH AS: (ESTROGEN CONTAINING FOODS ) AND ( ESTROGEN PLASTICS LATEX PRODUCTS) Then ESTROGEN IN AIR, FLOWERS RELEASE ESTROGEN, FLOWERS ESTROGEN, ESTROGEN IN MEN, ESTROGEN FOOD LIST, ESTROGEN IN WATER, ESTROGEN IN NATURE, ESTROGEN IN COFFEE, ESTROGEN IN TEA, ESTROGEN IN CANDY ,ESTROGEN IN CHOCOLATE ,ESTROGEN IN CEREAL, ESTROGEN IN SOAP, estrogen alcohol men, ESTROGEN IN BEER
, ESTROGEN IN FABRIC, ESTROGEN IN DAIRY PRODUCTS,

SO THAT MEANS Both Natural/ Synthetic sources are the causes, and it's NOT Really a Choic e when it's (ESTROGEN) is in 100% of the known Vegan food source alone, its Forced Genetics and Hormonal Re-interaction BY NATURAL FOODS AND THAT ALL MALES ARE AFFECTED BY IT,

(All Scientist/ MD/ Pharmacist / Psychologist, AMA etc knows what Estrogen do to ALL MALES ) to some extent AND that it's Naturally (BY "GOD") in Vagan Food Sources

The Nay Sayers should look in the Mirror at themselves and not Freudian Fantasize about others while in denile of there own Hormonal Consumption.

ESTROGEN FOOD PRODUCTS THAT EFFECT ALL MALES ARE:Soy (Tofu), Chickpea (Hummus), Lentils, Kidney (red) Beans, Breast Mike, Honey ,Bees Wax, Rye, Barley, Millet Lima Beans, Clover, Flax Seed, Fennel , APPLES, GRAPES, CHERRIES, Yams (Sweet Potatoes), Alfalfa Mushrooms, OLIVES, TOMATOES, CUCUMBERS, Spices, Berries, Ginger, Turmeric , SAGE, ALL NUTS, FERTILIZERS, PESTICIDES, Rices, Oats, BREWERS YEAST (BEER), curry, Turmeric, Black Eye Peas. a lot of "SOUL FOODS and VEGAN DIETS" "Kosher" "Halal" etc contain these very Vegetables and spices AND THERE ARE MORE

( YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT)

The Solution that is workable is for ALL MALES TO STOP POINTING AT OTHERS (OSTRACIZING) when they smoke it (THC and other street RX etc), consume these SAME products 24/7/365 should look in the mirror IT EFFECT ALL MALES (BRAIN AND BODY TISSUES) ie it still effect ALLMALES SEXUAL EMOTIONS, ITS EVERYWHERE (FOODS/ WATER, AIR (CHEM TRAILS), WEED (THC) All Plastics, Oils, Latex Males use and come in contact with every day

AS Jude Judy said in a broadcast about a women being sued by her husband mistress "Marriage is a Contract" U.C.C. (partnership)

Religious Marriage is Ownership over the wife and ALL she has by the Husband (Magna Carta). Therefore how can it be a "SIN" when both Nature and Synthetic surrounds MALES with it in AIR/ WATER/FOOD/ PRODUCTS and ALL MALES USE THESE even THE ALPHA MALES (THC users) are affected, ALL OF THEM.

The Vegetation Food Source that we ALL Humans eat come from Hermaphrodite Plants Remember The Reproduction system (cycle) of plants from High school and College (the male and female is in the Flower Stem and Pollen is the sperm, Bees use pollen (plant sperm) to make The Honey) i.e. if a tree is planted in the desert and given sunlight and water while there in 100-300 years you come back there it would be a forest. (FACT)

Hi Larry,
G.Morning folks
Well Madonna ,we all feel the way you do but we cannot change the cultural or religious values in other societies.
In Christianity,Judaism & Islam the three major religions Homosexuality is considered a sin.
In both the Old Hebrew Testament & New there are references to this, Mathew,Roman, Leviticus & other Epistles. However in most western countries the liberal thought & cultural evolution has changed the way we think as also by separation of religion & statehood. This is not the case elsewhere & we would continue seeing such cases.


Smith in Oregon   May 21st, 2010 2:31 pm ET

Much younger Gay's have been executed in Islamic ruled country's, and there is barely even a whisper of outrage in the West over those acts of barbarism. If this article were fair and balanced it would give readers a general number on how many Gay's are in prisons in Islamic ruled country's and awaiting execution.

Apparently, the point of the article is the unfairness of 14 years in hard labor for that adults couples sexual preferences. Yes that seems harsh but Justice and Courts around the world these days not only seem extremely harsh, they also stink of special interests and injustice is routinely being handed out these days on politically hot button issues.

The missionary accused of rounding up and kidnapping over 30 children to transport across the Haitian border to allegedly hand over to a known child sex trafficker got a simple rebuke and shown the door with time served after crass, callous and heavy US State Dept. meetings.

The Canadian Mark Emery accused by the US DEA of selling fertile marijuana seeds to Americans over the internet appears to be forced (extradited) to serve A FIVE YEAR SENTENCE in a US federal prison! Simply for selling fertile marijuana seeds!!! To demonstrate how over the top, hard booted DEA and extremely crass and callous US federal Justice that is, consider in Canada that slight infraction would at most generate a 125 dollar fine tops.

Mark Emery was in US District Court in Seattle for an initial appearance on Thursday. He's expected to plead guilty to charges stemming from his marijuana seed distribution service on Monday. Meantime supporters of Emery planned to protest the extradition in Vancouver, BC.

I'm really disappointed with Mia Farrow putting the screws to Naomi Campbell by literally forcing Naomi to testify against an alleged war criminal and mercenary Charles Taylor.

Mai Farrow alleges Naomi gushed some gossip to her about a huge raw diamond that Charles Taylor allegedly offered/gave to Naomi Campbell. Naomi obviously fearing for her LIFE has refused to state anything whatsoever about the time she met Charles Taylor while Naomi was in South Africa on a completely unrelated tour.

It is entirely crass, callous, uncaring and totally apathetic for Mia Farrow to force Naomi Campbell to travel to the war crimes tribunal and testify against Charles Taylor. I have no idea what prescription drugs Mia Farrow is taking however Mia Farrow has reportedly volunteered to travel to the war crimes tribunal and testify against Charles Taylor in regards to the gossip which she reportedly was told.

Mia Farrow appears to clearly not give a damn nor even rationally think about her future, Naomi on the other hand is fully aware of the distinct possibility's being forced upon her. I feel sorry for Naomi and the serious position she is being placed in. If I were advising Naomi Campbell, I would tell her she has thanks to Mia Farrow no choice but to travel to the war crimes tribunal and on the stand 'Tell them you didn't receive ANYTHING from Charles Taylor period'.

I'm sure Naomi Campbell has already scratched Mia Farrow off of her 'friends' list, no need to remind her of that!

Hi Larry,
@Smith in Oregon
let me also mention that the Hutaree(Christian Soldier) militia men held for plotting a rebellion against the govt of USA, planning to kill Americans & use of weapons of mass destruction have been set free by a court.
These crimes of sedition & terrorism carry minimum of life,if not capital punishment. But narry a whimper from any quarter for setting these terrorists free.
@ Shaiarra. Sorry couldn't get your point.Do you mean to say that Homosexuality is a result of these Estrogen we find in our food?


kelly   May 21st, 2010 5:15 pm ET

its easy to moralize and judge other countries and their judicial practices...its easy for the wealthy and irrelavent to have their opinions splashed across the paper, television and internet as if they have all the answers or the "only important" opinions. While innocent people serve life sentences for crimes THEY DID NOT COMMIT, superstars serve the interests of those lobby groups and ideologies that reflect only their insular lifestyles.

The rest are only troglodytes , bigots and uneducated religious fools.


IKHAN   May 21st, 2010 10:44 pm ET

@kelly

your observation is right.
We Americans have out of arrogance perhaps & conceit inculcated this habit of sitting in judgment on every other country & culture but our own & that of our closest ally& even be the executioner.
Well we are picking the bitter fruit of this self destructive trait which landed us in Iraq & Afghanistan & God knows which other mess well find ourselves in if this continues.


Patrick P. Owens   May 22nd, 2010 6:31 pm ET

Madonna's my HERO. She always stands up for what's right. It's one of the benefits of being one in a group of siblings; tolerance! When I think of the tree of life and that at its core is beauty, Miss Madonna comes to mind. I'm not a people worshipper, something I really distain but, I know a good heart when I see one. It's rare and brilliant.
Thank you Madonna. I know you make your Mother proud!

Interesting comments. Could be some truths in it. Have heard of something along these lines before.

Here is a question I would like to put out there.......... Why is it that twins can turn out homosexual? Can you put this down to genetics perhaps? I wonder..........?????


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 23rd, 2010 12:05 am ET

@
Madonna has always been known to speak out about things in the past, so this is nothing new with regards to her.


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 23rd, 2010 12:20 am ET

These people knew what the laws of their country were. Why did they do this. By the sounds of things, this country does not want this type of thing flaunted. They have their reasons I suppose.

I don't want anything bad to happen to homosexuals, don't get me wrong. God will judge us all in the end.
