  1. Consider donating to the [Rainbow Railroad](https://www.rainbowrailroad.org/) to help LGBT+ people escape persecution and violence like this. Echoing anger toward anti-LGBT+ evangelicals, but do not forget that Mike Pence, the Vice President, and William Barr, the Attorney General, are vehemently anti-LGBT and that 2019 has been the deadliest year for transwomen [ever](https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2019/10/15/anti-transgender-hate-crimes-surge-home-office-data/), for Black transwomen in particular like [Bee Love Slater](https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/14/us/black-transgender-woman-bee-love-slater.html), 23, who was lynched last month in Florida.

  2. Remember that Chik-Fil-A supports the fundamentalist/evangelical organization that has sent folks to Uganda to lobby for this.

    Nothing like a chicken sandwich seasoned with homophobic genocide!

  3. Brought to you by Chick FilA

  4. > Wasswa … worked as a paralegal for the Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum, which offers resources and support to marginalized communities in Uganda, and as a peer educator for the AIDS Support Organization.

    so for christians in uganda, homosexuals = bad but killing homosexuals = good? no hypocrisy to read into there.

    > “Homosexuality is not natural to Ugandans,” [Ethics and Integrity Minister Simon Lokodo] said, “but there has been a massive recruitment by gay people in schools, and especially among the youth, where they are promoting the falsehood that people are born like that.”

  5. Here in Canada we celebrate sodomy, we don’t make it illegal. Down with Uganda!

  6. No but evangelicals only want to live their lives in peace, they would never want to interfere with other people’s choices. We can just leave them alone and they will just keep on living their little ignorant lives in peace. /s

  7. Uganda is Russia of Africa… Disgusting

  8. This is something that should warrant extreme sanctions on the country.

  9. Its tragic that, if youre a homosexual, Uganda get the heck out of there!

    ​

    …Really though, this poor soul is another martyr in a (hopefully) inevitable future of acceptance. Just like everywhere, this is taught behaviour and thinking.

  10. So many comments blaming the U.S. for this. Are we really going to hide behind the racism of low expectations and state that these people are too dumb to resist propaganda, therefore they don’t have any responsibility for this?

  11. So it’s the fault of the one that says homosexuality is bad, not the one that kills homosexuals or passes a law allowing it…

  12. Well, he was probably going to die of aids anyway. Yeah, people forget that 1 in 4 men in major cities has HIV. It’s definitely not something that should be glamorised.

  13. New law gets enforced. You’re an idiot if you’re gay and remain in that country
