    Paid for by US Foreign Aid which the obama administration had promised would be attached to gay rights. Egypt, Nigeria, Sudan, Pakistan, Kenya, obama's good friend, the Sultan of Brunei who has ordered that gays be executed by stoning. The list goes on and on.

    One can only imagine anything that Mitt Romney or John McCain would have done for gay people in these situations or in our own country. I think the answer would be none! You gay conservative republicans are incredible.

    Can we stop bickering over the lesser evil? The U.S. is hardly a democracy anyway.

    It may be more enlightening to discuss here the merits, cautions and responsibilities of western cultural influence.

    This is the kind of news that makes Republicans happy - gays being arrested and persecuted. It's what they are pushing for in the US, in their party platform, and their legislation.

    But it also pleases them if Obama can somehow be connected to this Egyptian anti-gay action. Republicans endorse these oppressions, and then blame Obama for them. An elegant political strategy.

    American evangelicals are largely responsible for the hate.

    Why can't these "americans" who export hate be a prosecuted?

    "The Supreme Court's recent decisions on same-sex marriage were a sound rebuke to religious conservatives who have sought to demonize gay Americans and prevent them from sharing rights that their fellow citizens take for granted. But American evangelical groups, undaunted by their losses in America's culture wars, have been taking their messages—good and bad—to the multitudes of Africa."
