U.S. Christian Leaders’ Renewed Statement of Concern Regarding the Criminalization of LGBT People and Groups in Uganda
In an open statement, American Christian leaders denounce the fundamental injustice of labeling lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people as criminals. They also decry propagation of the dangerous myth that LGBTI persons pose an inherent threat to children. The signatories of the statement reiterate their belief that the criminalization of homosexuality in any form is incompatible with Christian faith in democratic societies.
