Uganda MP: “Homosexuality it is not a human right. It is not in-born.”
Defends anti-homosexuality bill, adds, “It is a behaviour that is learned and it can be unlearned.”
Via the BBC:
“A Ugandan MP accused of calling for a “gay death penalty” says he has been misrepresented and is only trying to criminalise child abusers.”
“David Bahati says the new offence of “aggravated homosexuality” is a penalty against “defilement” of under-18s.”
“There has been a distortion in the media that we are providing death for gays. That is not true,” he said.
“When a homosexual defiles a kid of less than 18 years old, we are providing a penalty for this.”
