Two Facebook groups have been created by U.S. and Ugandan evangelicals to espouse antigay violence and promote legislation requiring the execution of Ugandan same-sex-attracted persons.

They are:

Speak Loud for Family: Support anti-homosexuality bill ’09

We are Ugandans and we do not support Gay

Acting on behalf of the LGBT Ugandans who must already remain in hiding, and who face execution starting in January 2010, Facebook members who favor equality and human rights have — since last week — reported the groups, and individual members who espouse violence.

Thus far, Facebook has taken no action. Please continue to report these groups and individual members who espouse violence or execution. If no action is taken, please write to abuse@facebook.com.
