Uganda's government should be put to death
Bad idea... religion is to blame.
Matthew 9:10-13 10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Homosexuality is a perverse sin that must be preached against. Just because no one is harmed... does not make it not a sin. Punishable by death? No, NO, NO!!! There is no debate as to whether they should or should not be killed; Imo this thread should be locked since trolls keep screwing up the poll. The government in whatever that country is is misinformed; death shouldn't be an option.

Homosexuality is neither one of the lesser or greater sins. I rank homosexuality below abortion and above stem cell research. To say we all sin (which we do), and make it seem as though all are equal, then one must think they all should have the same punishment.
@ Blackdog: So we should conform to the government's rules and not fight for God's rules in a civil, passive, and legal way? What if the government were to penalize Christianity? Would you still hold to your "render unto Cesar" thing?

But it is that first thought process (which I helpfully highlighted, guess you didn't notice) that homosexuality is a sin and being gay is perverse which leads to demonization of gays because holy text rejects them. Have you understood what I have said?
Both Christianity and Islam are responsible for this hatred of Gays in Africa and both religions play a part as to why Uganda has passed this bill. Well, more Christianity in Uganda because the country is majority Christian
