Coming soon to Ron DeSantis’ Florida? He would if he could.
A new law in passed by Uganda government to crack down on homosexual activities comes with the penalty of life in prison. While homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda but this bill introduces many new criminal offenses. The bill is one of the toughest pieces of anti-gay legislation in Africa.
Amnesty International has called the bill, which criminalizes same-sex between consenting adults “appalling”, “ambiguous” and “vaguely worded”
“This deeply repressive legislation will institutionalise discrimination, hatred, and prejudice against LGBTI people – including those who are perceived to be LGBTI – and block the legitimate work of civil society, public health professionals, and community leaders,”Tigere Chagutah, Amnesty International
The bill will now go to President Yoweri Museveni who can choose to use his veto -or sign it into law anti-gay comments in recent weeks, and also criticized Western countries for putting pressure on Uganda over the issue.
If signed into law Uganda faces (and rightfully so) losing s significant health and development assistance from the United States with a total assistance budget exceeding $950 million per year.

Let us not forget that this horror has been perpetrated upon Ugandans – and other gays and lesbians in other African nations – by American missionaries in the name of God and Jesus Christ.
This should be a world law, homosexuality should be illegal anywhere on the planet.
Quite the opposite is true. Most countries in this world have signed on to United Nations agreements that guarantee basic human rights to all world citizens. Even those with ideas such as this one.
Jesus said to Love. That Man is not to judge. We all Sin and fall short of the Glory of God.
