Uganda has been considering and continues to consider legislation that would make homosexuality a crime punishable by imprisonment or death. This is a documentary on Current TV about the legislation and the influence that American evangelicals have had in promoting it. The same people who are responsible for inciting outpourings of irrational hatred in this country are hard at the same work in Africa, with what appears to be even greater success.
Those same evangelicals are now distancing themselves from their own work, saying the Ugandans have taken their condemnations of gays too far, but their objections are tellingly limited, and make no attempt to recognize the promoters of the bill as the hatemongers they are. This legislation would criminalize people who are doing harm to nobody, solely on the basis of their homosexuality. It is evil, and not to speak out loudly against it is to be complicit in that evil.
