A "Christian Voice" Supports Dealth Penalty for Gays-FAIL

We try to keep most of the stories here positive and affirming, but we also feel the need to raise awareness to some of the hatred directed at LGBT people around the world.  Here is an ugly example of that. From Wales Online via Twitter user CommonComrades:

The Welsh leader of a Christian campaign group has spoken out in support of the death penalty for homosexuals.

His comments come almost a month after Uganda proposed a law that would make gay sex punishable by a life sentence or even death.

In a statement that will outrage human rights groups, Stephen Green, the director of campaign group Christian Voice, claimed:

o Gay people who have sex knowing they are HIV positive should be given the death penalty because they have “committed murder”;
o Capital punishment is acceptable because it is ordained by God in the Bible;
o Britain’s laws “promote perversion” because they do not make homosexuality a criminal offence.
