    First off, there are black people outside the US you know. Secondly black people in America rarely vote for "religious conservative bigots", because they are from the Republican party.

    But in Africa (you know where blacks come from), Christians are very conservative and among other things burn children as witches.

    if one wants it to be. this doesn't hide the fact that this law has little to do with christianity and more to do with African nation's being instability-prone. When the religious right pushes a referendum to kill gays, then I'll be worried. Untill then, this is just normal liberal generalization bs about how intolerant christians are.
    Its not a generalization. The facts are pretty simple. American radical Christians are an intolerant bunch.

    African Americans tend to vote for Democrats.
    But I was under the impression we were discussing Uganda where Africans who tend to be Christians are hardcore on their beliefs and are conservative.

    Christianity or rather religion undoubtedly influences a opinion. The bible is not very nice to gays which can be seen as a way of justifying said behaviour.

    Over 80% of the population in Uganda are Christians nearly half of that population being Catholics.
    Catholicism is not exactly ... tolerant of differences.

    Well then, let's see how the pope addresses the issue, either way, not even christian sects are fond of Catholicism for it's intolerance.

    Besides, this is just uganda being uganda, worse things happen there, not because of christian missionaries but just because of overall political instability.

    PeteEU; however, likes to blame christianity for every bad thing, like the holocaust, instead of the real culprit, nazism.

    Hey PeteEU, a lot of the people that started the EU were christians, did christianity take credit for that?

    American evangelical Christians certainly will have a lot to answer for if this bill passes. I wonder how many of them are secretly patting each other on the back for exporting this particularly heinous anti-homosexual rhetoric turned into law.

    http://wthrockmorton.com/wp-content/...-bill-2009.pdf





    The death conviction is death by hanging.

    Anyone who KNOWS someone is homosexual and doesn't report them, will serve up to 3 years in prison for not turning them in.



    Read the bill, it goes on and on and on.

    Rachel Maddow has done an outstanding job showing the links between the US religious right, both politicians and churches, and their hand in this "unintended consequence" of their activities.

    Excellent post. Outstanding post.

    If Miss California and Prop 8 are the top of the slippery slope of homophobia and bigotry towards gays, the this is the bottom...

    Congrats Evangelicals. You've become the Catholic Church (during the Spanish Inquisition)...

    Fear and ignorance run riot.

    So this judgement is not very surprising considering the fact the Bible is violent if one wants it to be.
    As violent as a public school history text book, sure.
