Christian Love: Uganda Resurrects “Kill The Gays” Bill

Reuters reports:

Uganda announced plans on Thursday for a bill that would impose the death penalty on homosexuals, saying the legislation would curb a rise in unnatural sex in the east African nation. The bill – colloquially known as “Kill the Gays” in Uganda – was nullified five years ago on a technicality and the government said it plans to resurrect it within weeks.

“Homosexuality is not natural to Ugandans, but there has been a massive recruitment by gay people in schools, and especially among the youth, where they are promoting the falsehood that people are born like that,” Ethics and Integrity Minister Simon Lokodo told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

“Our current penal law is limited. It only criminalises the act. We want it made clear that anyone who is even involved in promotion and recruitment has to be criminalised. Those that do grave acts will be given the death sentence.”

Around 85% of Ugandans are Christians. Ethics Minister Simon Lokodo is a former Catholic priest and local media continues to refer to him as “Father Lokodo.”

RELATED: As most of you surely recall, the first attempt to pass the “Kill The Gays” bill came after pressure from Christian activist Scott Lively, who was later unsuccessfully sued in the United States for crimes against humanity. Lively has since made two failed runs for governor of Massachusetts.
