An official in the Caddo parish is moving that pajama pants be banned in public after an incident at a local Walmart where one man in a group revealed himself while wearing pajamas.
Michael Williams, a commissioner in the parish, started the proposal for no pajamas in public. He was actually among the group of shoppers in Walmart that were flashed by the man in pajamas. Williams feels if people are allowed to wear pajamas in public then they might take it a step further and wear even more risque clothing in public. He is also suggesting that people who violate the ordinance be ordered to do community service.
Shreveport, which is inside the Caddo parish, already has an ordinance that bans sagging pants.
President Obama’s pro-gay rights foreign policy has gotten some backlash from Africa where the majority of Africa’s 54 nations ban homosexuality.
The President’s policy basically asked that all governments worldwide “ensure that US diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of lesbian, gay, and transgender persons”. While this may go over well in some countries, most officials in Africa are completely against the new policy.
John Nagenda, a senior adviser to Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni, spoke out about the new policy.
“Homosexuality here is taboo, it’s something anathema to Africans, and I can say that this idea of Clinton’s, of Obama’s, is something that will be seen as abhorrent in every country on the continent that I can think of.”
As we indicated earlier, most of Africa’s 54 countries ban homosexuality and the penalties for violating the law can be quite severe ranging from imprisonment to death.
