People should not take the laws into their hands and harm homosexuals, since they are also human beings though with different sexual feelings.”

John Baptist Odama — John Baptist Odama, Archbishop of Gulu, Uganda. According to Uganda’s The Daily Monitor, Odama made the remarks in the wake of the country’s Constitutional Court overturning a controversial anti-gay law deemed invalid due to a technicality. Lawmakers and the general public support the passing of a new law, as does Odama, who continued, “I appeal to all God-fearing people and all Ugandans to remain committed to the support against homosexuality.”
