The Roman Catholic archbishop of Uganda comes out against the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in his Christmas message. Money quote: “The recent tabled Anti-Homosexuality Bill does not pass a test of a Christian caring approach to this issue” Likewise, the leade of Uganda’s main opposition party:

What two consenting adults do, the state has no business… absolutely!
It is discriminatory. Me, I don’t understand this idea of “African
values.” Was Muwanga not a homosexual, the Kabaka 1? Eh? Was he not a
homosexual? No! Let’s stop this nonsense! It is natural! Many children,
many young boys in school, as they are growing to adults, have this
tendency of attraction.

Things in Kampala are now going to get very interesting.
