The French Foreign Ministry has issued a statement concerning the Anti-Homosexuality Bill currently under serious consideration in Uganda:
“France expresses deep concern regarding the bill currently before the Ugandan parliament,” the French foreign ministry said in a statement sent to AFP in Kampala on Monday.
“France reiterates its commitment to the decriminalisation of homosexuality and the fight against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”
The bill provides penalties up to and including death. Even knowing someone who is gay and not reporting them would be a crime punishable by years in prison.
Way to go, France.
