Is Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill still that confusing for you? You know, the parts where, in the bill under review, gay Ugandans would be subject to the death penalty and severe prison terms for being human beings that physically express their love? But the bill doesn’t just go after gays, but citizens who know about gays. And their failure to report them to authorities is punishable by a three-year prison sentence. So what happens if you twice fail to report a homosexual? You become serial offender yourself.
Rob Tisinai reads through the proposed legislation and finds outrageous punishments for non-homosexuals. Which explains why some religious leaders are perfectly fine with everything in the bill, minus the “reporting homos” mandate.
