Joyce Meyer Denounces Antigay Uganda Bill

Influential evangelical leader Joyce Meyer has responded to pressure and denounced the antigay bill pending in Uganda that would punish some gay people with the death penalty.

According to Change.org, the powerful head of Joyce Meyer Ministries sent an e-mail Monday afternoon that denounced the bill as "dangerous" to individual liberties and human rights.

"It is increasingly evident that the proposed 'Anti-Homosexuality Bill' introduced in the Ugandan parliament is a profoundly offensive, dangerous and disturbing attack on the very foundation of individual liberties and human rights afforded not only to the good citizens of Uganda, but on the at-large global community," wrote Meyer.

The St. Louis-based Meyer, whose worldwide ministry includes an office in Uganda, had been silent on the issue. She sent the e-mail in response to activists who urged the charismatic Christian speaker and author to say something.
