Kill The Gays Bill.

with 4 comments

Peter Tatchell has highlighted this alarming article on Huff Post and the video below it, concerning the links between US Christians and those in Uganda bringing forth legislation to legitimise the murder of Gays. I hadn’t followed this issue, until now, but the fact it is going on in the 21st century, aided and abetted by US Christians is outrageous.

This is another clip from the Rachel Maddow show which explains more. It is staggering.

    Nice look this week, mod. I didn’t get on soon enough to complement you on your previous new look.

  3. thanks ent,

    Mesq, I think it is the video below, the interview and how they are both bigoted, one murderously so, and the other just a modern version of snake oil, and the supposition that you can “cure” homosexuality, which of course is nonsense.

    PS: I am still playing around with WP’s theme to find a nice, simple but pleasing one.
