We'll be visiting in less than 2 months - mainly to see our Ugandan friends. Watched a BBC programme about what it's like to be gay in Uganda and the attitudes of those who hate them. Makes me sad. I can't change it and it would be pointless to bring up the topic while we are there. It's up to the educated younger generation of Ugandans to convince the country of the truth.
Good point, the next generation will hopefully make positive changes.

What is so infuriating about people with these hateful beliefs is they can regurgitate all this hateful rhetoric with little accountability, but as soon as someone actually takes what they are saying seriously and implements the death penalty based on their speeches, conferences, and direct involvement, then they feel they are not responsible for the outcomes. These individuals and the organizations they represent have blood on their hands, and people here defending them, or denying their accountability are sickening.

I can't tell if you want to ignore reality, or are just being stubborn. The influence of American evangelicals was heavily discussed when this bill was first proposed a few years ago.

Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” Bill Reintroduced | Human Rights Campaign

As HRC has previously reported, Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill has received support from American religious extremists, including Scott Lively and Lou Engle.

U.S. Pastors Exporting Bigotry to Uganda with Murderous Results | Human Rights Campaign

The Family Research Council has also spent 10s of thousands of dollars lobbying Congress to not try and stop Uganda from passing this bill.

How on Earth can anyone believe they are following Jesus when they are advocating execution of gay people? Baffles my mind that amount of hate the exists in the minds of religious extremists. Uganda is also proof that Christianity still has sociopaths just as evil and destructive as Islam. These Uganda "Christians" are no better than the Muslims who caused 9/11.
