The Ugandans Proudly Exercising Their Right to Free Speech, Executing Homosexuals

THE SHOT — A rally today in Jinja, outside the Ugandan capital of Kampala, calls on Western influences (including The Obama) to exit the nation’s debate on further criminalizing homosexuality.

The demonstration comes as police worked yesterday to shut down an anti-gay rally as pro-gay activists, led by the Rev. Marlin Lavanhar and the Unitarian Universalist Church of Kampala, tried to secretly convene a strategy meeting; it’s unclear if today’s demonstration was a replacement for yesterday’s cancellation.
