‘I do not support the proposed anti-homosexuality law as written. However, if the offending sections were sufficiently modified, the proposed law would represent an encouraging step in the right direction’

SOUNDBITES — “I commend the courage of the Ugandan people. During the past decade or so, Uganda has been one of the few countries of the world that has firmly resisted the enormous power and relentless pressure of the international ‘gay’ lobby, while other developing nations such as South Africa and Brazil have been systematically homosexualized. This is one of the reasons that Uganda’s AIDS rate went from the highest to the lowest in Africa during this same time period. Let me be absolutely clear. I do not support the proposed anti-homosexuality law as written. It does not emphasize rehabilitation over punishment and the punishment that it calls for is unacceptably harsh. However, if the offending sections were sufficiently modified, the proposed law would represent an encouraging step in the right direction. As one of the first laws of this century to recognize that the destructiveness of the ‘gay’ agenda warrants opposition by government, it would deserve support from Christian believers and other advocates of marriage-based culture around the world.” —Defend the Family International chief Scott Lively, who insists he is not an architect of Uganda’s Kill The Gays bill (via)
