KAMPALA, Uganda, June 29, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Ethics and Integrity Minister James Nsaba Buturo admitted that he receives nearly two dozen emails daily from homosexual activists worldwide, reports Uganda’s Daily Monitor.
“I receive at least 20 abusive and threatening mails on my life daily,” he stated. “As I speak now, I have seen about 11 mails on my email address waiting for me to read.”
“The language those people use while writing messages to me is horrible,” he added. “I can’t read them out because it will be a shame for me.”
Minister Buturo referred to the language in the messages again, saying: “With such words and language used, I have noticed that those people are sick. They need help.”
At present homosexual marriage is a criminal offense within Uganda. A 2005 amendment to Ugandan law specifically states, “It is unlawful for same-sex couples to marry.”
Nevertheless, AllAfrica.com reports, the Minister stated that when dealing with homosexuals the government “does not plan to vilify and criminalise homosexuals,” but rather, “It will support measures to counsel and help them understand that their state is not normal or natural but a serious social and psychological aberration in human behaviour” (See https://allafrica.com/stories/200706290189.html).
According to both the Monitor and AllAfrica.com, last year the minister threatened to arrest leaders of a new homosexual church group that was supposedly forming in Uganda. Although this might seem to be a cause for the flood of threats, most of the messages have been coming from the United Kingdom and the United States.
