Canadian House of Bishops expresses “deep sense of alarm”

The Episcopal Church’s Primate and President of the House of Deputies have been joined by the entire House of Bishops of the Anglican Church in Canada (and their Lutheran colleagues) in expressing their deep concern regarding the proposed Ugandan legislation which would increase the already harsh penalties for homosexuality in that country:

“The House of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada as well as the Conference of Bishops of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada have sent a statement conveying a ‘deep sense of alarm’ over Uganda’s proposed anti-homosexuality bill. The bill articulates a new category, ‘aggravated homosexuality,’ which could draw the death penalty. Ugandan citizens living outside the country could also be extradited to face imprisonment or death.”
