Thousands of Americans are expressing outrage over a new bill in Uganda that would heavily penalize those involved in homosexuality.
The Anti-Homosexuality Bill, which is currently being debated, imposes punishment not only on gays and lesbians who engage in homosexual behavior, but also those who support gay organizations or who know about a homosexual and fail to report it to authorities.
“American Christians have some culpability for this situation by going to Uganda and failing to speak against this error,” said Dr. Warren Throckmorton, associate professor of psychology at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. “American Christians need to step up and speak now.”
Throckmorton recently started a Facebook page to spread awareness about the bill and urge the public to voice their opposition. The page already has more than 2,500 members from around the globe, many of them speechless over the new bill.
