One comment on “Timothy Shah–The Uganda Conspiracy Theory

  1. Confessor says:

STDs like syphillis, occur in ‘gay’ males 44 times more than normal… so why are they pushing these ‘orientations’ and activities in one foreign country that has been successfully fighting AIDS and public schools, even elementary schools?
