Pastor Rick Warren, distancing himself from any association with the Uganda "kill the gays" bill, released a video message to pastors in Uganda urging them to treat all with respect.
Says Warren: "The potential law before your parliament is unjust, it's extreme, and it's un-Christian towards homosexuals."
