Uganda's Anglican church proposes amending existing antigay laws over new bill
Mar 09, 2010
The Anglican Church of Uganda says it now prefers to see some changes to existing antihomosexuality laws rather than passage of a totally new bill that many international church and secular leaders have condemned.
Still, the church has said there is a need for a law that would clearly address gay issues in the east African country, and that Ugandan Anglicans remain strongly opposed to the acceptance and promotion of homosexuality.
“The Church of Uganda associates itself with the concerns expressed in the Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009,” Arch bishop Henry Orombi said in a February 9 statement.
