    Your guess is wrong. They got the idea from American Christians

    Scott Lively - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Scott Douglas Lively (born December 14, 1957), an American author, attorney, and activist. He is noted for his opposition to LGBT rights and his involvement in the ex-gay movement. He is the president of Abiding Truth Ministries, a conservative Christian organization located in Temecula, California,[1] and the former state director of the California branch of the American Family Association. Lively has called for the criminalization of "the public advocacy of homosexuality" as far back as 2007,[2][3] and is allegedly involved in anti-gay legislation in Uganda.[4]

    Last March, three American evangelical Christians, whose teachings about “curing” homosexuals have been widely discredited in the United States, arrived here in Uganda’s capital to give a series of talks.

    The theme of the event, according to Stephen Langa, its Ugandan organizer, was “the gay agenda — that whole hidden and dark agenda” — and the threat homosexuals posed to Bible-based values and the traditional African family.

    For three days, according to participants and audio recordings, thousands of Ugandans, including police officers, teachers and national politicians, listened raptly to the Americans, who were presented as experts on homosexuality. The visitors discussed how to make gay people straight, how gay men often sodomized teenage boys and how “the gay movement is an evil institution” whose goal is “to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity.”
    the Ugandan organizers of the conference admit helping draft the bill, and Mr. Lively has acknowledged meeting with Ugandan lawmakers to discuss it. He even wrote on his blog in March that someone had likened their campaign to “a nuclear bomb against the gay agenda in Uganda.”

    ccording to Jeff Sharlet, who reported extensively on the bill's American roots, Bahati has also cited the anti-homosexuality message of Pastor Rick Warren as an influence. Warren, along with John Ashcroft and Senator Jim Inhofe, have been frequent visitors to the country's annual, American-style National Prayer Breakfasts.

    Nice try - the thread is about the newpaper article, not the bill - my comments stand.

    I'll await your habitual need to call me a liar.

    No need to cry - you were simply wrong - and your last sentence proves you are capable of understanding that.

    Have a good day.

    Re: Uganda newspaper names 200 'homos' after anti-gay law signed

    two hundred people are going to die and you make a joke of it? well thats cold man. Like.... even if you are against it for religionous reasons... isant killing them now sort of I don't know making it impossible for them to repent for there sins? and condeming them to death sounds like you don't believe they can change when the bible clearly says you can even though I don't believe thats completely true. just sucks to know OP would laugh to see me dead :/

    the scripture that says what you once were I forgot what it was exactly was like you can repent if someone could reply with the scripture i'm talking about that'd be great

    I have proven the links between american right wing christians and the Ugandan campaign against homosexuals. All you've got is the hysterical claim that the Ugandans were inspired by liberals, a point that was inspired by a desire to drama queen the issue.

    Kampala (AFP) - A Ugandan newspaper listed Tuesday 200 people it accused of being gay, a day after the president called homosexuals 'mercenaries' and signing one of the world's toughest anti-gay laws.




    Only 200!
    man they got it easy we have over 2 million and they run the country

    Funny how our right wing neighbor to the north wants so desperately to believe this is a liberal conspiracy. Notice how he didn't even call out the OP for his unconscionable comment? Gee I wonder why that is?

    I believe that the right wing experiences vicarious enjoyment in acts of hatred against those it finds politically or socially objectionable.

    Just read the OP for an example.
