In sum, he warned, U. homosexuals are out to recruit young people into homosexual lifestyles so they must be stopped. Harry Mwebesa of Family Life Network told the crowd, Dr.
Scott told us about Brazil where 10 years ago, homosexuality was unheard of. There are people that have been against homosexuality that are having to leave because of the pressure and the threats that they are putting on them. Another participant who called himself Elijah said, The man of God [Scott Lively] told us about a movement behind the promotion of homosexuality and it is called gay movement. But I got to know that there is a force behind homosexuality which we need to tackle with force.
Family Life Network's Langa pushed people at a follow up meeting to stand up for the tougher law against homosexuality for their children's sake, echoing Lively in charging that Ugandan gays and activists were being paid by U. While hardly embraced, and indeed illegal in many countries, at least LGBT people were not hounded by churches and police alike until American culture warriors came to Africa. But unlike the United States, in Africa sexual minorities are only thinly organized and have few allies who will stand up with them. But in more authoritarian countries, like Uganda and Nigeria, where some counties punish homosexuality with death, U. religious conservatives are better able to promote their anti-LGBT agenda, building on decades of missionary work.

Lively and the "traditional family values" language of U. antigay campaigners echoes through the first draft of the legislation dating to April: Research indicates that the homosexuality has a variety of negative consequences including higher incidences of violence, sexually transmitted diseases, and use of drugs.The higher incidence of separation and break-up in homosexual relationships also creates a highly unstable environment for children raised by homosexuals through adoption or otherwise, and can have profound psychological consequences on those children.In addition, the promotion of homosexual behavior undermines our traditional family values.
