The Ugandan "Kill the Gays" bill is back on the Parliament's schedule to be passed before the end of the year.
After he initially endorsed the bill, President Museveni responded to international pressure and promised to veto the bill. But it's going to take a massive outcry from activists to overcome intense pressure at home and ensure that he keeps this promise.

Nasty Bill?
---
Originally, the bill called for the death penalty for some gay acts, but it was revised and now aims to "prohibit and penalize homosexual behavior and related practices in Uganda as they constitute a threat to the traditional family."

Both gay marriage and any form of same-sex relationship are illegal in Uganda; the country’s penal code criminalizes homosexuality. In 2009, lawmaker David Bahati wanted stronger laws to "protect" Uganda’s children from LGBT people and introduced the controversial bill that same year. Gay men and lesbians in the country can be sent to prison up to 14 years for their orientation. The new bill would make the current legislation even stricter.

Odd.... when I open it, it gives options for country, and provides quotes from folks around the world. Maybe a google search would give you a different link.

But as Snyper suggests, try change.org

Thank you Mr. Bahati! Thank you Uganda!
Finally a country that knows the proper way to deal with homosexuals!
Oh, I know another country that had an idea how to deal with those they didn't feel up to their scary standards. That country also made being gay illegal and sent many to their deaths. You may even know it. A nice mountainous place in the middle of Europe, home to Beethoven and Freud and Martin Luther. We know how that country's GRAND their ideas played out also, don't we, Adolph?

The second link is like that, yeah, but the first one wouldn't give me any options to put in information as a Canadian.

We know you advise killing people.
We know you're an attention-whore and that's why you post here and are continuing to post "noooo" as if anyone cares about your answer.
We know you're horrible at having an actual life.
The above are all facts.
Sorry, that first sentence is supposed to read as "we know you advocate killing people."
