Reverend Rick Warren released a video letter to clergy in Uganda today, speaking out against proposed legislation in that country that punishes homosexual activity with death. The legislation applies not just to gays and lesbians; anyone who is aware of homosexual activity would be obligated to report it to authorities. Warren, whose Saddleback Church has done ministry work in Uganda says he's releasing the statement
"....because I didn't rush to make a public statement, some erroneously concluded that I supported this terrible bill, and some even claimed that I was a sponsor of the bill. You in Uganda know that is untrue."
