    Uganda is a predominately Christian country.

    For that matter, this bill was made possible thanks to the works of American Evangelicals.

    I said that it was Muslim on accident, thinking that I was talking about Sudan, for some Dyslexic reason. He was just going off of my statement.

    KAMPALA, Uganda — 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.”

    no the country and its citizens

    the gays ought to do what the sheeple that Idi Amin didn't do

    start killing anyone who tries to kill them. but that country is a cesspool

    racism and bigotry rules that place. Amin booted out the hard working Indians who made Uganda a fairly prosperous society and gave their markets and stores to unqualified supporters who ruined them (like Mugabe-a guy someone should have shot years ago-did with white farmers' lands)

    then he started murdering people based on tribal identity

    Rather than start killing people, why don't Christians clarify gay men and women are also God's children. Teach them that we are all sinners and no one is better than anyone else regardless.

    Education to undo the damage already done would be a step on the right direction, not killing. Africa has seen enough of that.

    And Jesus wept.

    Re: homosexuality potentially punishable by death

    Does the person who ran up the polls really think we're fooled by it?

    Wow, 113 votes for allowing the genocide of homosexuals in Uganda -- guess I was wrong, sure thing, it's cool with me!
