The Ugandan government has passed a 'Kill The Gays' bill. The bill will take affect this December. The Ugandan Speaker Rebecca Kadaga said the anti-gay bill will become law by December since most Ugandans ‘are demanding it’. Referring to the law as a ‘Christmas gift’ to the population, she spoke of ‘the serious threat’ posed by homosexuals.
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.
Regardless of what your views may be about homosexuality, I'm sure you agree we cannot idly sit by and watch this genocide occur.
Please sign this petition asking our President to join with other nations and the UN to protect the people of Uganda. Then email the petition to your friends and family.
Our goal is 25,000 signatures, thank you for being one of them.
With kind regards,
