U.S. Christian bigwigs sign statement against "ungodly" legislation overseas.
Link to PDF
An ungodly statement. No Christian would sign it.
According to the PDF, the bill before the Uganda Parliament would enforce lifetime prison sentences, and in some cases, the death penalty for homosexual behavior, as well as punish citizens for not reporting their gay and lesbian neighbors to the authorities.
I'm all for taking a moral stand against homosexual behavior, but this bill is completely over the top, and I can't imagine why any Christian would not oppose it. However, it's not necessary to sign the declaration in the OP (which is a political statement veiled as a religious statement) to oppose the bill which it references. In fact, I generally discourage Christians from signing such declarations.
