I will pronounce this the most hilarious article of the week. My eyes are dry. I am crying.
Clergy calls for lighter punishment for gays
The Provincial Secretary of the Church of Uganda, Rev. Aaron Mwesigye has called for a lighter punishment for homosexuals.
He says the proposal to kill the people engaged in homosexuals and lesbianism is against the God’s gift to life.
He was addressing a press conference today at Namirembe Protestants Cathedral in Kampala.
Rev. Mwesigye also told Parliament on Wednesday that the church supports homosexuals to be imprisoned for life but not to hang them.
Mwesigye says the clause in the Anti-homosexuality Bill 2009 which proposes death as a penalty for homosexuality should be removed.
The man of God says they support the bill because the religious teachings condemn homosexual but at the same time they don’t support hanging as a punishment.
