Speak out against Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009 on Facebook

From Chicago speaks out against Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009 (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=195596417907&v=info):

The Ugandan Parliament has tabled a bill called the Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009, and will be voting on it in the near future. A wide cross-section of people, including people from many faiths, sexual identities, and nations are opposing this bill because it criminalizes consenting behavior between adults, and calls for life imprisonment and even the death penalty for some homosexual “offenders.” We want to speak out in a civil but powerful manner to reinforce that all people are created in God’s image and deserve respect and liberty.

Christians are encouraged to add their voice in opposition to this bill by joining this Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=198541255168.  It may be doubtful how much influence such a group can have, but in my opinion it is very important for Christians to express their values at times like this, especially when the actions and statements of some may cause non-Christians to misunderstand the positions and priorities of our faith, or of God.
