    WASHINGTON - April 26 - The Bishops and Elders Council of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, which is convening this week in Washington, D.C., will hold a noontime vigil, Tuesday, April 27, to support Ugandan lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Uganda is considering the proposed "Anti-Homosexuality Bill," which would make homosexuality punishable by life imprisonment or even death. Leaders from across the world have expressed outrage at this measure. There has been criticism of some U.S. evangelicals, such as anti-LGBT and anti-abortion extremist Lou Engle of The Call Ministries, who are accused of exporting homophobia to Uganda. Engle is slated to go to Uganda on May 2 for The Call Uganda, a mass evangelical stadium rally.?
