?????????????????A Roman Catholic Church cardinal has criticized the Ugandan anti-gay law that expanded punishment for gay people and threatened life in prison for certain offenders, arguing that gay people “are not criminals.” Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, made the comments Tuesday in Bratislava, Slovakia, during a church and human rights conference, according toCatholicHearald.co.uk. He urged the international community, however, to keep sending much needed aid to Uganda, which is now facing cuts and sanctions because of the law. Uganda’s decision to expand the legal punishment for homosexuality has been criticized by some world leaders, though the nation’s political and church leaders have insisted that it is their right to manage the country according to their ways.
