You might want to review this article. It provides nebulous support to the claim made in the abstract to this article.

I've looked high and low and I haven't yet located anything telling me Turkson supports the "kill the gays" bill.

Can anyone cite something?

That was one of the articles I looked up.

He's no fan of homosexuality, but his quote here hardly seems supportive of the Ugandan bill, even in abstract:

“We [the Church] push for the rights of prisoners, the rights of others; and the last thing we want to do is infringe upon the rights of anyone."
