Quickie Link: 'We Must Resist Gays' Says Christian Bishop
(Uganda) - The Government should not yield to pressure and legalise homosexuality and lesbianism, the Bishop of Bukedi Diocese, the Rt. Rev. Nicodemus Okille, has appealed. The bishop, who was delivering his Christmas sermon at St. Peter’s Church of Uganda Tororo on Tuesday, said the acts violate both the biblical teachings on marriage and African culture. Okille criticised the advocates of Gay rights, saying they had no place in the Kingdom of God. “These are acts to question the ordinances of God. There’s nothing like ‘intellectualising’ sin; sin is sin. How do you imagine a woman sharing the same bed with a woman or a man with a fellow man?” he asked. According to the Penal Code Act, homosexuality is illegal and carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
