This proposed Ugandan bill makes me sick. Rick Warren has released a video denouncing the bill.

Well THIS is certainly...

...I was going to say "encouraging," except that I do not believe ANYONE in this country, regardless of how they feel about homosexuality, condones imprisoning or killing them.

But if they were going to listen to anyone, it would definitely be him, so, good for him for stepping up and trying to smack them down at least a LITTLE.

Too little, far too late, and quite suspect in terms of sincerity, IMHO.

That bill is sickening to me, too. How on earth anybody could propose or condone it while pretending to be a religious person is disgusting.

Death penalty for gays is used in 7 countries. In several others being gay means jailtime and torture.


Why people so

who cares why people are so shocked? i'd think that the more people who are shocked into learning more and speaking out, the better. does it really matter which particular abuse of homosexuals turns the lights on?
