http://www.cbsnews.com/news/officials-ugandas-leader-to-sign-anti-gay-bill-that-includes-life-imprisonment/ Everyone thought that the global pressure would cause President Yoweri Museveni to reject the bill but today Museveni promised to sign the bill after he read a report he had received from Ugandan "medical experts" saying "homosexuality is not genetic but a social behavior." When the bill was first introduced in 2009 it was called the 'Kill the Gays Bill' because it punished certain acts of homosexuality with execution. The death penalty provision was removed following international outrage, but the current bill still calls for life imprisonment for gay sex involving HIV-positive individuals, acts with minors and the disabled, and for repeated 'offenses' involving consenting adults. A person who "conducts a marriage ceremony" for a same-sex couple faces seven years behind bars under the bill, and it also criminalizes failure to report homosexual acts to authorities, and calls for five-year prison terms for medical professionals who treat gays, landlords who rent them property and even individuals suspected of being gay. "Promoting" homosexuality is also a crime under the bill, an 'offense' which reportedly covers acts as innocuous as providing HIV counseling. I wonder how the rest of the world will react to this news, if at all. Sanctions, maybe?
