Should Uganda debate gay execution?

Should homosexuals face execution? Yes, we accept it is a stark and disturbing question. But this is the reality behind an Anti-Homosexuality Bill being debated on Friday by the Ugandan parliament which would see some homosexual offences punishable by death.

What next? A question that asks: “Is human sacrifice okay as long as it is done for religious reasons?” Someone should be fired for such an offensive and foolish question.


The BBC has apologized (although a weak one) after complaints about an online debate which asked: “Should homosexuals face execution?” in response to proposed anti-gay legislation in Uganda.
