White4DarkerFL saidSeems like Uganda is following the republican playbook: Scapegoat gays to deflect people's attention away from a country in decline.
That seems like just a teeny bit of a stretch, you think?
I don't think anyone is advocating for the death penalty for LGBT folks here in the USA with any degree of popularity.
Did you read the article? Apparently not.
The fact is, the Republicans and Ugandans both scapegoat gays. A government official won't put a bullet into their head...but gays do suffer a loss of LIFE, LIBERTY and PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS in the US every day from murder, hate crimes, bullying, gay bashing, job loss, slander, libel and fall out from other forms of hatred and discrimination....almost always drummed up by religious broadcasters with close ties to the republican party. When we try to solve these problems...it's always AND ONLY the Conservatives slandering gays and spreading lies to drum up fear and anger among the uneducated (tea party and republican voters).
But worse...Conservatives are not satisfied spreading their filth in the US only....they also drum up hatred among Ugandans through their radical religious organization called The Family. Please read the article, then tell me how Conservatives are your friends. Here is an excerpt: "Among them is the Fellowship Foundation, better known as the Family, a secretive but powerful evangelical club that includes U.S. senators and congressmen. Republican senators Jim Inhofe, Tom Coburn, John Ensign, Jim DeMint and Sam Brownback belong to the group. The group includes members like Mike McIntyre, a conservative Democratic congressman, who believes that the Ten Commandments are "the fundamental legal code for the laws of the United States.” "
