Uganda's Kill-Everyone Law: A Video Tour

If you’ve been reading this blog, you know Uganda’s anti-gay bill is far more lethal than we’re being told.  You don’t even have to be gay or have gay sex to be put to death. I haven’t seen anyone else report on this, and I’ve been called a liar for saying it.

So here’s a video tour of the bill.  I can’t make it any plainer than that.

Please, this is literally life-and-death.  If the video convinces you, share it.  Put it on facebook, share it with your friends, or send it to your legislator. There’s a resolution in Congress to condemn this bill.  It should be a mark of shame for any Representative not to support that resolution, no matter how right-wing they are.  Make sure everyone knows it.

UPDATE:  Reader Chris has suggested I add some links, which is a really good idea.

    Good work. I don’t think it gets any more clear and obvious than this video. I’ve posted it on facebook and linked to it on twitter.

    Thank you for all the work you do blogging and making videos. They do make a difference!

    With what Boxturtlebulletin and you have done, this needs immediate attention of our government authorities. Before the anti-homosexual bill gathers any more momentum and really gets our State Department into a mess, we need to stop this bill from gaining any more traction.

    I will not have any of our tax dollars going to support Uganda if this bill passes. It’s genocide, pure and simple and it’s happening in the 21st Century.

    The piece Rachel Maddow has done on this subject should be revised or updated to keep it in the forefront in the news.

    Obviously this is a law very restrictive of freedoms but the restriction on Supporting Same Sex marriage doesn’t lead to death. The clause clearly states “imprisonment for life”, which is certainly cruel but not death. And enabling others to engage is a seven year sentence, not a death sentence. The law is clear that only forced (non-consensual) same-sex relations are punishable by death. Countries such as Saudi Arabi, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, Egypt, etc. have equally bad laws so add them to the list of countries that should no longer get aid.

    [Webmaster’s note: Sadly, you’re mistaken. All the sentences you list are for a single offense. However, if you have multiple convictions, you become a serial offender, and thus guilty of aggravated homosexuality (even if you haven’t actually ever had gay sex), and thus subject to the death penalty.]

    Thank you for this very informative video. I just have one suggestion: can you please provide quick links for viewers to take action on the issue? For folks outside of the US, Avaaz has a good petition:

    And as you note, the Congressional push is a great way for US citizens to take action. This, from Physicians for Human Rights, is one example of a group that is sending e-faxes and letters:

    Ideally, you could have a link in the video, but if not – maybe on the YouTube description or featured on your blog?

    Thanks again for your work.

    Wow! I’ve read the bill a couple of times and I didn’t realise the law is so restrictive! I’ll bet if the law were already in force, antigay Pastor Martin Ssemba could be tried and convicted as a “serial offender” for “enabling or encouraging or abetting homosexuality” because he’s showing gay porn in church… at lest twice now!
