UPDATED: Gays and lesbians afraid in Uganda.
Members of Uganda’s lesbian and gay community fear they’ll be persecuted even more than they are, as Arwa Damon reports.
Depressing news from Uganda, Bishop Luwalira praised the Parliament for passing the anti-gay law:
The Anglican Church has applauded Parliament for standing firm and passing the contentious the Anti-Homosexuality Bill. While giving a Christmas sermon at St. Paul’s Cathedral Namirembe, Bishop Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira said Parliament should continue to protect the country’s conservative customs. He also asked Parliament to pass a law, which outlaws abortion. As Agness Nandutu reports, other pentecostal churches also added their voice against homosexuality in Uganda.

Wonder when or if the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will speak to this?
