I’ve got my campaign hat on and this time it’s in support of Avaaz and their movement to stop Uganda’s anti-gay law from becoming a reality. The proposed legislation will result in gays being sentenced to life imprisonment or even the death penalty and you don’t need me to explain what a ludicrous human rights violation this is. But it goes further . . . the law would see to it that friends of gays and lesbians would be imprisoned too. And NGO’s working to prevent the spread of HIV could also find themselves locked up for promoting homosexuality.
Of course some people on the Christian right think this is a good law as part of Uganda’s emerging Christian culture against a gay movement that wants to take over the world. A real Jesus fan isn’t he! He got me here . . . “Many Ugandans are shocked at the reaction to this bill and the extent to which homosexual activists can intimidate everyone to silence,”
Just fancy that, those selfish gay activists trying to bully the world into not wanting them to be killed.
He goes on to imply that the gay lobby is over-reacting to the proposed legislation, arguing that the proposed law is simply an effort to “discourage homosexuality”.
So, basically he thinks there’s nothing extreme about a simple law that states that if you commit a gay act once, you get a life sentence and if you do it more than once, you’re a serial homo and you get the death penalty. His efforts to simplify such a blatant hate law is quite astonishing and utterly anti-Christian. What would Jesus do?
