"It is more than your opinion, sir, it is proposed legislation to subject to life imprisonment or possibly execution a relatively significant portion of the population—okay, life imprisonment. Even if you take the execution part of it out, to subject to life imprisonment a relatively significant portion of the population of your country; because of that, it’s more than your opinion, it is the thing that has made you internationally famous and it may be the thing, ultimately, that results in you being charged with crimes against humanity in some sort of international tribunal. If that happens, sir, I wish you luck in your defense but I don’t expect it will go far."

— Rachel Maddow, speaking to David Bahati, sponsor of the “Kill the Gays” bill and member of the Ugandan Parliament.
