Uganda Debates Death Penalty for Gays

Hosted by

Televangelists in the US are broadcast in African countries. Pastor Rick Warren of The Purpose Driven Life is especially proud of his outreach. But that's drawn him into the controversy over a proposal to make what's called "aggravated homosexuality" punishable by death in Uganda. Yesterday, Warren issued a video message to Ugandan church leaders condemning the anti-gay bill as "unjust, extreme and un-Christian." Andrew Rice has lived in Uganda and written about it in newspapers, magazines and in The Teeth May Smile But the Heart Does Not Forget.
