Think Progress’ Zack Ford has an article up reporting on new and bizarre comments made by Ugandan Parliament Speaker Rebecca Kadaga (below).
Kadaga is an outspoken opponent of gay rights, championing the infamous Anti-Homosexuality Bill (dubbed the “Kill the Gays” bill by opponents, as its first version decreed a death penalty for homosexuality). The milder version (that passed) implemented a life-in-prison sentence for homosexuality. Uganda’s Constitutional Court overturned the law earlier this year on the grounds that its passage violated parliamentary procedure, but legislators are considering a new version.
Speaking this past Sunday of the alleged dangers of gay rights activists, Kadaga issued some bizarre warnings.
