Accuracy in Media promotes inaccurate reading of Uganda’s Anti-homosexuality Bill

Not sure why this continues to happen. But here it is.

Homosexual media activists in the U.S. such as Rachel Maddow of MSNBC and Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post have falsely depicted the bill in Uganda as an effort to kill homosexuals. In fact, it is designed to save lives by restricting dangerous homosexual practices, including pedophilia, child rape, and the deliberate spreading of the AIDS virus. The controversial death penalty provision, which even some pro-family activists in the U.S. find objectionable, is for crimes of “aggravated homosexuality.”

We have been over this a lot and it is discouraging to see someone who represents a group with the name “accuracy” in it provide incomplete and inaccurate information.

Then he notes that some Christians oppose the bill.

However, American pastor Rick Warren had his arms twisted and is now urging Ugandan pastors to oppose the bill. Curiously, Warren Throckmorton of Grove City College, a conservative Christian institution, has been working with homosexual bloggers and anti-Christian activists to kill the legislation.

Neither Warrens have had their arm twisted. We just read the entire bill. Anyone can. It is here. And here it is with some comment. If you don’t want to speak out, fine. If you think homosexuality should be criminalized with life in prison, then just say so.

If you agree with this:

The objectives of the Bill are to….

(b) prohibit and penalize homosexual behavior and related practices in Uganda as they constitute a threat to the traditional family;

then say so…
