President Signs Anti-Homosexuality Bill into Law

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has signed a bill that toughens penalties against homosexual behaviour and defines some homosexual acts as crimes punishable by life in prison, reports CISA.

At a public signing of the bill on Monday, the Ugandan President declared that he would not allow the West to impose its values on his country.

“We have been disappointed for a long time by the conduct of the West, the way you conduct yourselves there,” he told the US news network CNN. “Our disappointment is now exacerbated because we are sorry to see that you live the way you live, but we keep quiet about it. Now you say ‘you must also live like us’ — that’s where we say no.”

President Museveni took the decision after seeking scientific opinion into homosexuality and finding that researchers had determined it cannot be traced to a gene but was instead a choice to embrace abnormal behaviour.

“It was learned and could be unlearned,” he said.

The Catechism of Catholic Church states: “Homosexuality’s psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.’ They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. (2357)”

“The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. They do not choose their homosexual condition; for most of them it is a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition. (2358).”

“Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection (2359).”
