That March meeting launched a campaign that has led directly to today, when the Ugandan legislature is debating an anti-gay bill that would lead to life imprisonment for gay sex, and death for those having same sex relations if they are HIV positive or having sex with someone under 18. Heterosexuals would have no such restrictions. This law, which would also criminalize any human rights organizing for LGBT rights, could be passed any day.
We call on Rick Warren to denounce the antigay legislation proposed in Uganda and challenge his friends like Archbishop Henry Orombi and Pastor Martin Sempa who are leading the charge.
Here in the United States, Rick Warren says he loves gays, but in Africa, need to hear his voice loud and clear that gays and lesbians are entitled to full human rights.
Pastor Warren: Please speak up and denounce the anti-gay bill in Uganda!
