You might want to read this. It's an opinion piece in one of the major Ugandan newspapers and basically shows you the fallacy-ridden argument that has gained so much traction in Uganda against gays within its population. You may be happy that Tom Coburn and Rick Warren are all belatedly distancing themselves from the happenings in the country, but let's not be fooled; (1) Their silence, as a reader of yours said, was quite eloquent, as is their saying it to an American public. I would be more convinced if they took that message to Uganda; and (2) This bill is really quite popular. You underestimate the number of people who think homosexuality is a "white disease" and therefore resistance to such is seen as resisting some sort of neocolonialism. Ridiculous, I know, but what of all this isn't?
