I Am Samuel: A heart-warming portrait of a Kenyan man who tries to balance duty to his family with his unquenchable desire to ram his penis into other men’s anuses
Why are these jungle countries more civilized than white countries?
Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around?
Kenyan authorities on Thursday banned a documentary about two gay lovers, calling it “unacceptable and an affront to (the) culture and identity” of a deeply Christian country which has long criminalised homosexuality.
Directed by a Kenyan filmmaker, “I Am Samuel” depicts a romantic relationship between two men living in Nairobi and has aroused the ire of the country’s censors for promoting “same-sex marriage as an acceptable way of life”.
The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) said the documentary sought to propagate “values that are in dissonance with our constitution, culture values and norms”.
“Worse still, the production is demeaning of Christianity as two gay men in the film purport to conduct a religious marriage invoking the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,” KFCB boss Christopher Wambua said in a statement, declaring it “blasphemous”.

“Any attempt to exhibit, distribute, broadcast or possess the restricted film within the Republic of Kenya shall, therefore, be met with the full force of the law.”
Homosexuality is taboo across much of Africa, and gays often face discrimination or persecution.
Attempts to overturn British colonial-era laws banning homosexuality in Kenya have proven unsuccessful, and gay sex remains a punishable crime with penalties that include imprisonment of up to 14 years.
Yeah, I’m sure the reason gay sex is illegal is because of the British and their colonialist ways.
Before the British did colonialism against Kenya, niggas was doing colonism – straight up the gay asshole!
(That actually is not true and is retarded. As we mentioned earlier today, Africa is one place on earth that did have sexual norms different from the rest of the world. But those norms did not include man-on-man anal ramming. No people on earth had that, except the Arabs. Blaming anti-gay laws on colonialism is one of the top bizarre things I’ve seen in the last hour or so.)
