Homosexual Marriage in Uganda

I heard about this piece of news today and wanted to post it. Following the legalization of homosexual marriage in Spain, I learned that Uganda has actually criminalized same sex marriage.

The amendment specifies that "marriage is lawful only if entered into between a man and a woman." It also states that "it is unlawful for same-sex couples to marry." One-hundred eleven members of parliament voted in favor of the amendment while 17 opposed it and 3 abstained.

The penalties for violating the amendment have not yet been set, but will be determined at a later date when the penal code is revised to accommodate the change in the Constitution.

I'm unsure if it should be made a criminal act, but at least Uganda has taken a stand against what our current media is showing. And you don't see the media talking about Uganda but rather Canada and Spain.

And I would agree with our country not perfect but a land of freedom. I think our country could be one of the best on earth if only we valued God first and then abortion would be only a sad chapter in a high school history book.
