Box Turtle Bulletin brings us the latest from Uganda:
As we reported last week, several Ugandan Christian leaders have spoken out on the Anti-Homosexuality Act which has been introduced in that nation’s Parliament, but their statements have largely been in full support with the bill with a few reservations about the proposed death penalty for “serial offenders” and those who are HIV-positive...While some Ugandan Christian leaders have expressed reservations about the death penalty provisions while being perfectly happy with lifetime imprisonment for being gay, at least one prominent Uganda preacher has given the new law his total support. Martin Ssempa of Makerere Community Church was not at the parliamentary meeting, but he did send a statement to Grove City College professor Warren Throckmorton in which he offered his “total support of the bill and would be most grateful if it did pass.”
