Muslim Coupled (sic) Jailed For Church Sex

While it is good that a Ugandan court is standing up for Christians, the reason, "insulting religion" is a slippery slope which will be exploited by Islamists to smother any speech they deem unacceptable.  Any and all "hate speech" crimes must be revoled in favor of free speech.


Muslim Coupled (sic) Jailed For Church Sex

Date: 17-Jun-2010      

A Ugandan court has sent a Muslim couple to jail on charges of insulting the Christian religion by allegedly having sex in a church in Entebbe.

The prosecution alleges that Abbasi Kigongo and Aisha Namazzi were found having sex near the altar of Kigungu Miracle Centre church in Uganda’s capital on May 14.

The charge sheet says that “the duo willfully decided to have sex in the church with intentions of insulting a religion. That is unlawful.” The charge sheet was obtained from the Entebbe magistrate’s office Tuesday.

The pair is scheduled to reappear in court June 22. The prosecution alleges that a churchgoer near the scene heard strange loud noises in the church, investigated the situation, and found the couple having sex.

An official at the magistrate’s office said if found guilty, the couple could be subject to the Ugandan penal code, which says that “insulting a religion attracts a maximum sentence of two years imprisonment.”
