The last time Ugandan politician David Bahati tried to introduce an anti-homosexuality bill he was on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show.
This was after Bahati and his proposed law had been roundly denounced by President Obama, UK Prime Minister David Cameron and Nobel laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu. He had called for, among other things, the death penalty for gay adults who have sexual relations with minors of the same gender.
When talking with Rachel Maddow back in 2010, Bahati argued that his bill had been tabled to defend family values and the children of Uganda. But he did say during the course of the interview that he was willing to drop the death penalty clause.
