I was watching ABC News tonight, and up popped a story on the gay-hatred that is going on in Uganda now. This is all being led by assorted religious leaders, who claim (similar to Christianist Lauren Ashley) that homosexuality is evil and subject to death per their bible. One of the questions Diane Sawyer posed prior to doing a lead-in to Nightline (which also carried the story) was "could visits by conservative American christian leaders recently have encouraged the Ugandan hatred of gays?" As the title states... jeeze - do you think that might have had an effect?!?
An American christian leader writes a book stating homosexuals will rape children, turn those children into homosexuals, and destroy society That same leader then visits Uganda with other christian leaders and speaks with many Ugandan religious and government leaders. Shortly after they leave, bills are being passed stating that gays can be put to death for being gay, jailed for being gay, and their family and friends jailed for not narcing on them. Yeah - our own American Taliban / christianists helped push their hatred into Uganda, leading to the terrorism of an entire group of people there.
I just hope Nightline gives credit where credit is due, and does not let the American religious leaders who spurred the Ugandans to action off easy.
