Global Ministries Responds to Uganda's Bill on Sexual Discrimination Currently on the table in the Ugandan Parliament is the Anti-Homosexuality Bill of 2009, which would discriminate against and outlaw homosexuality.

Global Ministries is a partnership between the United Church of Christ and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
