Local reports from Uganda have surfaced on the nation's proposed antihomosexuality bill, which, if passed, could impose the death penalty or a life sentence on those convicted of engaging in gay sex.

The gay blog Box Turtle Bulletin has obtained three videos (all below) from Ugandan state-owned television news shows -- all three appear to have aired on Thursday and been captured on cell phone. The first video covers an antigay rally and centers on the role local pastors play in the bill. The second video features Integrity and Ethics minister James Nsaba Buturo claiming gays can be "rehabilitated." The final video has local leaders slamming President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for pressuring Uganda to drop the bill.
