From the President’s remarks today:
I am so deeply disappointed that Uganda will shortly enact legislation
that would criminalize homosexuality. The
Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda, once law, will be more than an
affront and a danger to the gay community in Uganda.
President Obama said that the legislation:
…will be a step backward for all Ugandans and
reflect poorly on Uganda’s commitment to protecting the human rights of
its people. It also will mark a serious setback for all those around
the world who share a commitment to freedom, justice and equal rights.
Warren Throckmorton has a very interesting post that includes scans of the “research” from Uganda’s Ministry of Health supporting the bill. It is abundantly clear that Uganda’s “researchers” sought solely to support a predetermined conclusion.
