2. The offence of homosexuality.
(1) A person commits the offence of homosexuality if-
(a) he penetrates the anus or mouth of another person of the same sex with his penis or any other sexual contraption;
(b) he or she uses any object or sexual contraption to penetrate or stimulate sexual organ of a person of the same sex;
(e) he or she touches another person with the intention of committing the act of homosexuality.(2) A person who commits an offence under this section shall be liable on conviction to imprisonment for life.
3. Aggravated homosexuality.I'm guessing most gays are of the serial type, not a "one-time-only-experimented-in-college" type, so that's a pretty clear case of "the government will kill you for being gay."

I'm pretty sure I know What Jesus Would Do, but What Would Influential Douche Rick Warren Do?
Warren won't go so far as to condemn the legislation itself. A request for a broader reaction to the proposed Ugandan antihomosexual laws generated this response: "The fundamental dignity of every person, our right to be free, and the freedom to make moral choices are gifts endowed by God, our creator. However, it is not my personal calling as a pastor in America to comment or interfere in the political process of other nations." On Meet the Press this morning, he reiterated this neutral stance in a different context: "As a pastor, my job is to encourage, to support. I never take sides."Yes, Rick Warren would never, ever take sides.
Oh, but that's in America. He's talking about taking sides in other countries. Countries like Uganda.
Days later, Warren emerged so enthusiastic after a meeting with First Lady Museveni, he announced a plan to make Uganda a “Purpose Driven Nation.” “The future of Christianity is not Europe or North America, but Africa, Asia, and Latin America,” he told a cheering throng at Makerere University. Then, Ugandan Archbishop Henry Orombi rose and predicted, “Someday, we will have a purpose driven continent!”
Rick Warren has been actively been palling around with Ugandan homphobes and pushing an anti-gay agenda in Uganda for a long time. For him to act like an uninvolved party on this is rank hypocrisy.
Like I should expect anything else.
Also, Max Blumenthal is a national treasure.
