Here's an excerpt from the article:

"Uganda will pass a new law against homosexuality by the end of 2012 as a "Christmas gift" to its advocates, the speaker of parliament has said.

The AP news agency quoted Rebecca Kadaga as saying that Ugandans were "demanding" the law.

Homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda, but the bill which is before parliament proposes tougher sentences for people convicted.

Foreign donors have threatened to cut aid if gay rights are not respected.

The bill, tabled by MP David Bahati, proposes jail terms for homosexual acts, including a life sentence in certain circumstances.

It prohibits the "promotion" of gay rights and calls for the punishment of anyone who "funds or sponsors homosexuality" or "abets homosexuality"

You couldn't make it up. Never underestimate man's capacity for collective madness.

Horse,

Your comment is shameful and is totally lacking not only in charity but also in common human decency.

dischism,

My apologies I clicked on the 'no' vote by mistake. I was aiming for the loathsome posting below you

No problem. :)

I'm in full agreement with both of your statements, Allan. Loathsome indeed.

What do you mean? It is being done in Jesus' name! Uganda is putting the Christ back in Christmas.

Bubba,

You don't like that rule: Do unto others before they do it to you?

What did I just miss?

Have any Christian churches or groups condemned this legislation? Has the Archbishop of Canterbury condemned the Anglican Church in Uganda for its support of this legislation?
