The Ugandan government has signed an anti-“homosexuality” act into law.
The new law, brought in on the 30th of May 2023, prescribes that people convicted of aggravated “homosexuality” may be punished with a death sentence or life imprisonment.
Sodomy was already illegal in the country. The new law, passed with the support of 341 out of 389 members of parliament, further criminalises promoting homosexuality, identifying as “homosexual”, and engaging in same-sex relationships.
Nations in the developing world are opposing pressure from the West to legalise evil. Uganda has gone further, as has Nigeria, to prohibit homosexual propaganda. The Bible says,
Job 11:14 If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.
Meanwhile, in the UK:
And Christians are hounded out of their jobs for speaking against ‘Pride’ and for opposing men (also known as ‘trans-women’) competing in women’s sports:

Western World Criticism
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s decision to sign the anti-sodomy Act 2023 has drawn Western criticism.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz in a Tweet, said: ‘This Ugandan law is horrific & wrong. Any law criminalising “homosexuality,” or imposing the death penalty for aggravated homosexuality is grotesque & an abomination. All civilised nations should join together in condemning this human rights abuse.’
But nowhere in international law is sodomy regarded as a ‘human right’. A civilised nation is one which protects its children from vice.
President Biden characterised the new law as ‘a tragic violation of universal human rights—one that is not worthy of the Ugandan people and one that jeopardizes the prospects of critical economic growth for the entire country.’
Again, sodomy is not a human right. Note Mr Biden’s threat to withhold US aid. But President Museveni is unmoved by threats and cares about his nation. The Bible says leaders will be rewarded for doing good, not evil|:
Proverbs 16.12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.
More criticism from the ‘Usual Suspects’!
In a joint statement, three of the world’s leading health campaign groups – the US President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (Pepfar), UNAids and the Global Fund (the Usual Suspects!), said they were deeply concerned about what they considered to be the “harmful impact” of the legislation.
‘Uganda’s progress on its HIV response is now in grave jeopardy,’ the statement said.
The group further claimed the law was discriminatory and “threatens Progress in the AIDS Response.”
‘The Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023 will obstruct health education and the outreach that can help end AIDS as a public health threat. The stigma and discrimination associated with the passage of the Act has already led to reduced access to prevention as well as treatment services,’ they said.
The truth is, the whole Western world is in thrall to the homosexual lobby and determined to spread its corruption around the developing world.
The new Uganda law drew a half-hearted protest in the London ‘Pride’ parade on 1st July 2023.
Veteran LGBT campaigner Peter Tatchell made banners and led a few dozen activists, some possibly Ugandan, at the rear of the parade, behind all the corporate and UK establishment floats.
In contrast to the pro-gay West, Uganda Parliamentary speaker Anita Among praised Mr Museveni’s decision to sign the bill into law on Twitter, saying it would “protect the sanctity of the family”.
“We have stood strong to defend the culture, values, and aspirations of our people,” she added.
Standing against cultural imperialists
This is not the first time Uganda has passed a law criminalising same-sex relationships. In 2019, Uganda announced plans to impose the death penalty on homosexuals. Initially proposed in 2009 and passed in 2013, it was rejected by the Constitutional Court in 2014 on procedural grounds.
But since then, Uganda has stiffened its resolve against Western cultural evils, and the cultural imperialists such as the UK Government and Open Society Foundation promoting them. Under the 2023 Act, the charge of aggravated “homosexuality” is punishable by death and includes spreading HIV through same-sex relations, rape, and statutory rape, as well as for those deemed serial offenders.

Reactions from Ugandan-based Foreign Agents
“The Ugandan president has today legalised state-sponsored homophobia and transphobia. We shall continue to fight this atrocious legislation through the Judiciary until Human Rights for all are upheld,” the activist added.
Clare Byarugaba has also been involved with Chapter Four Uganda, according to Al Jazeera. It came out in a recent court case concerning fellow-activist Nicholas Opiyo that Chapter Four Uganda, as it admits on its own website, has received yearly grants of an astonishing 340,000 USD. These monies appear to have come from its ‘Partners’, listed as US-based pro-gay foundations listed by the NGO as the American Jewish World Service, the National Endowment for Democracy, The International Center for Not-for-Profit Law and The Fund for Global Human Rights (US-UK).
Chapter Four Uganda, in common with every pro-gay NGO in the developing world, is no more than a foreign agent.
The Penal Code
The penal code of a country consists of laws related to crime and punishment. Apart from sodomy being an abomination before God, sections 162(a) and (c), 163, and 165 of the Kenyan Penal Code 1930, criminalises offenses such as having ‘carnal knowledge against the order of nature’.
Foreigners may claim that the law was introduced by the British. Nevertheless, it is based not just on Scripture but on African values. The offence of sodomy is punishable by up to 14 years in prison.
Just as the Bible says,
Deuteronomy 7: 11 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
