'The Wages of Sin is Death' in Uganda - Kill the Black Gays

By Laura Conaway

Tonight's show features an epic interview with David Bahati, the Ugandan Parliament member who has spent the past year pushing a bill that classifies homosexuality as a capital offense. Mr. Bahati tells us he's now ready to drop the execution part of the kill-the-gays bill, but that doesn't mean he's changed his mind.

A preview:

Maddow: In your view, Gods' law is that homosexuality is a sin. In your view, does God's law prescribe an appropriate punishment for that sin?

Bahati: God's law is always clear, that the wages of sin is death. Whether that is implemented through legislation like mine or by the mechanism of a human being, whatever happens is the end result, that we need to turn to God if we have sinned.

It's all a matter of how you meet your maker, I guess. Be there at 9 p.m. Eastern -- you won't want to miss this. And it's hard to think of another host you'd rather see conducting that conversation.

Select clips from our previous Uganda coverage, after the jump.
