Theresa May Attempts to Shame Former British Colonies Into Adopting LGBT Laws

In remarks earlier this month around the Commonwealth of Nations heads of government meeting, British Prime Minister Theresa May essentially attempted to shame former British colonies into adopting the LGBT movement’s goals. These remarks represented a new kind of colonialism, a moral crusade to browbeat former colonies that do not accept the LGBT movement.

May said she deeply regrets Britain’s role in criminalizing same-sex relations in its former colonies, and declared that such laws were “wrong then and wrong now.” While even the most socially conservative Brits and Americans would not advocate criminalizing same-sex relations today, May went further.

“Nobody should face discrimination and persecution because of who they are or who they love,” May told Commonwealth leaders, according to the BBC. Then the kicker: “The UK stands ready to support any Commonwealth nation wanting to reform outdated legislation that makes such discrimination possible.”

As the BBC noted, laws against homosexual relations passed under British rule are still in effect in 37 of the Commonwealth’s 53 member nations. Countries like Nigeria and Uganda have imposed stricter laws.

May did not just call for the reversal of laws criminalizing same-sex relations, however. She also declared that “nobody should face discrimination … because of who they are or who they love.” She also pledged that Britain would gladly intervene in the sovereign affairs of other countries, re-establishing a kind of colonialism, to achieve this goal.
