    Possible Passage of Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill In Coming Weeks

    "Most controversially, the Bill would punish "aggravated homosexuality" – including activity by "serial offenders" or those who are HIV positive – with the death penalty."

    Seems like Uganda is following the republican playbook: Scapegoat gays to deflect people's attention away from a country in decline.

    Well I have to wonder if the Washington DC -- C Street - Republican -'Frat house for Jesus', is still helping out with this kill the queers effort in Uganda? Remember the research Rachel Maddow did on members of this 'christian congressional club' and how they influenced this bill at its outset !!

    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.

    No but who do you think but the good christian Republicans, and their Christian Fundamentalist advisors proded them on, they only stopped when publicity was giving them a black eye for being involved. No they didn't tell them directly to kill them for homosexuality, but might as well have.

    Well they can kiss good bye to Canadian aid money, british aid money, australian aid money, among others. They've been warned before. If they enforce this, even our "conservative" government couldn't hand over money to murderers.

    ???

    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.” "
