How horrible is Uganda's proposed anti-homosexuality law? (Rob Tisinai)

Rob Tisinai spells it out clearly and systematically on his Waking Up Now blog. Follow him through the whole explanation, since one needs to get the overall picture to fully grasp how socially poisonous and morally appalling this venture into sexual Stalinism really is.

If you want to get more information about this proposed law and its implications, following the links at the end of Rob Tisinai's post would be a good way to start. (Also see the condemnations of this measure by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, US Evangelical Minister Rick Warren, and Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton. Two good NPR reports are accessible here & here. Rachel Maddow has done a series of hard-hitting and illuminating reports on this subject, including here & here.)

Uganda's Kill-Everyone Law: A Video Tour

If you’ve been reading this blog, you know Uganda’s anti-gay bill is far more lethal than we’re being told. You don’t even have to be gay or have gay sex to be put to death. I haven’t seen anyone else report on this, and I’ve been called a liar for saying it.

So here’s a video tour of the bill. I can’t make it any plainer than that.

UPDATE: Reader Chris has suggested I add some links, which is a really good idea.

Feel free to add others in the comments section.
