The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has sparked outrage for hosting an online debate on the “Have Your Say” website asking people if homosexuals in Uganda should face execution. The debate, original entitled “Should homosexuals face execution”, changed its headline to “Should Uganda debate gay execution?”, and attracted 600 comments of which only 200 were suitable for publication. “The forum’s introduction said: ‘Should homosexuals face execution? Yes, we accept it is a stark and disturbing question. But this is the reality behind an Anti-Homosexuality Bill being debated on Friday by the Ugandan Parliament which would see some homosexual offences punishable by death.’ While many contributors expressed shock that the question was up for discussion, some agreed with the notion that gay people should be put to death.”
