Uganda Paper Urges Hanging Of Gays...

The Uganda newspaper Rolling Stone published photos of the nations "top" gays, calling for their hanging.  Not only did they publish their photos and names, but also listed their addresses.

According to this CNN article, in Uganda it is a considered a serious crime to engage in homosexual activities, punishable by 14 years to life in prison.  A year ago, a Uganda lawmaker proposed legislation that would make homosexuality punishable by death.  Thankfully, there was enough outcry by the rest of the world to stifle the measure.

The article contributes outdated "Victorian morality and colonial laws," as well as a constitution based on religion to the attitude towards homosexuality.  Another fine example of religious fueled hatred.
