The evangelical christian inspired law is set to take effect in December in which gays in Uganda may be sentenced to life in prison or execution.
The law will broaden the criminalization of same-sex relationships by dividing homosexuality into two categories; aggravated homosexuality and the offense of homosexuality.
‘Aggravated homosexuality’ is defined as gay acts committed by parents or authority figures, HIV-positive people, pedophiles and repeat offenders. If convicted, they will face the death penalty.
The ‘offense of homosexuality’ includes same-sex sexual acts or being in a gay relationship, and will be prosecuted by life imprisonment.
Those crazy Africans, right? If only they had a western influence to civilize them, they wouldn't pass such atrocious laws. Oh...wait...
That was from 2009. The death penalty and life imprisonment didn't pass back then when they made homosexuality illegal. It took a little while, but it finally passed now.
Western evangelicals, the blood will be on your hands.
You created this mess. You stirred this hatred. You don't get to distance yourself from the results.
