Uganda Update

The death penalty and life imprisonment privisions have been dropped from Uganda’s upcoming anti-gay legislation.

Still included in the bill are jail sentences for being openly gay (gay sex is already criminalized), peacefully speaking, assembling, or advocating on behalf of homosexuals, and failing to notify the government of a friend/coworker/family member who is homosexual.

Rachel Maddow continues to cover the links between Christian fundamentalists in America and this disturbing legislation.

Additionally, Pastor Rick Warren has finally joined the public opposition for this bill.
