Arch. Tutu pleads With M7 Not To sign Anti-gay Bill


South Africa’s retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu urges Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni not to sign into law the harsh Anti-Homosexuality Bill that would give up to a life sentence in jail for some same-sex relations.

Tutu, a Nobel peace prize winner, said in a statement Sunday that Museveni a month ago had pledged not to allow the anti-gay legislation to become law in Uganda. But later Museveni said he had reconsidered and would consult scientists on whether homosexuality is determined by genetics or by a person’s choice.

Tutu said he is “disheartened” by Museveni’s change because there is “no scientific basis or genetic rationale for love … There is no scientific justification for prejudice and discrimination, ever.”

Tutu urged Museveni to strengthen Uganda’s “culture of human rights and justice.”

According to government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo, the president will sing the bill into law on Monday 24th February  at 11 am

  1. It’s so sad that the people we take as men of God are the real ones doing satan’s job. Men like tutu are the ones tarnishing Christianity. As a religious man, I have read the bible and found that it is such kind of things of homosexuality that led to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. How sure are you that the Lord who destroyed the previous regimes will not do the same when we repeat what our forefathers did? As a religious leader or as we think he is, let him quote the bible or any holly book which supports these acts, then I will lend him my ears but until he does so, let him not use the religion for his own personal benefits. Let me pray that our dear president signs it. Long live Mzee.

    1. THE CONTINENT of Africa has been “wicked” for a very long time. You starve, rape, and massacre your own people. When food and medicine is offered to your starving and dying masses; your leaders take all for themselves. And you call this “blessed” and “progress.”

  2. Does this so called archpishop has children who are at arisk of being sodomised? let go to hell wiz his options they don’t matter what matters is that the those cought in act are punished by the laws

  3. Bishop do not loose direction on religious front and support a such unfortunate and horrible acts mostly on African continent.By the way does he know why he was left behind the curtain during the burial of a great African fallen hero Nelson Mandela?ASK again u will be isolated and blacklisted .

  4. I think Uganda should ban people like retired Archbishop Tutu from coming to Uganda. If they want to come here or deal with us they should learn to respect the decision of a sovereign country. Can Archbishop Tutu give us only one verse in the Holy Bible condoning homosexuality? Don’t you think people like retired Archbishop Tutu is one of the few men of God confusing their flocks? Did Jesus of Nazareth the son of holy Merry condone homosexuality? Why did God destroy two famous towns of Sodom and Gomorrah? Was God such a foolish stuff for doing that? Why would some people like retired Archbishop Tutu like to defy the teachings of the Holy Bible? These are some of the questions that men of God like archbishop Tutu should providing answer to. Africa is not such a foolish continent that it doesn’t know where this campaign is coming from and what is all about. So man of God, sorry!!! just join the rest of Ugandans when they witness their president assent to the bill.

  5. This so called bishop is looking for another prize may be this time he will get the bum drilling award from the west.

      1. You have no idea what the Bible says about cutting off your hand or plucking out one of your eyes. The Bible recommends doing that to prevent being tempted to sin, but how many people are actually obeying the Bible and doing it?

        1. YOU should cut off your head to prevent your wicked tongue from wagging. Jesus did not set off a massacre when He walked this Earth. Stop lying on Him!

  6. I am not a master of the bible, I believe the good bishop is. Should we believe the bible or should we not. Should we perish with the wicked or stand out and do the right in front of the eyes of the Lord. Should strike Genesis 19 out of the bible my good Lord Bishop?

    1. The book of Leviticus 18:22

      22 “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.

      1. It’s a shame that people will not follow Jesus Christ in not harming, harassing, slandering, and killing other people. Jesus freed you so that you would hate no more. No sin is bigger than the other, and all have been born into and from sin.

  7. I would love to call him Retired Arch bishop I rather address him as Tutu, so Mr. Tutu Ugandans are going to ask the inter-religious council to right a memorandum calling for your permanent stay away from our Ugandan issues, better concentrate on your own business I believe the west has already given you that fat cheque no wonder thieves stole your property while you were attending the late Mandela’s requiem mass it just a sign that your a useless fellow

  8. Does Tutu read the Bible which other people read or what? If so,then why look at things upside down.He is going against what he is supposed to preach.Money is the centre of all evil!!!

  9. The Bishop Should Read

    Leviticus 18:22-23

    22 “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.

    23 “A man must not defile himself by having sex with an animal. And a woman must not offer herself to a male animal to have intercourse with it. This is a perverse act.

  10. Poor country, poor people.The only thing developed countries knew about Uganda was Idi Amin now it’s the anti gay bill.
    God help them because they don’t know what they are doing.

  11. Ecclesiastes 7:20
    Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.
