Criminalizing Homosexuality In Rwanda

by Patrick Appel

Jim Burroway wonders if Rick Warren will speak up again:

[Box Turtle Bulletin] has just learned that the Rwandan Parliament is scheduled to take up consideration of a change to Rwanda’s penal code which would criminalize homosexuality with a punishment of five to ten years. It would also ban counseling and advocacy that could be interpreted as “encouraging or sensitizing” people to enter into same-sex relationships....If Warren is serious about opposing the criminalization of homosexuality, he should engage his nationwide Rwandan PEACE Plan to put a stop to this bill. And send a personal copy of his video encyclical to his friend, President Kagame.
