    Re: Uganda gay rights activist David Kato killed

    Holy smokes. A corrupt country of bigots, where homosexuals are outted and murdered by the dozens, and a thread that should have honored the life of a brave man standing up for homosexual rights is twisted into a partisian pissing contest. What was the point of starting such crap in this particular thread? To defend Uganda? To insult Ugandan gays or gays in general? Or just because someone of the opposite political persuasion started a thread, and therefore must be challenged? Un-effing-believable.

    If the Ugandan government had anything to do with Kato's death, do you seriously think this would even be in the news?

    I'm not saying that, I'm saying that the police probably aren't very concerned with finding out who did this, and bringing them to justice.

    I guess that's why the killers are running from the police.

    Ya know, murder is illegal in the United States, but vigilantism isn't and cops will go whole hog after a vigilante. Perhaps the same standard exists in Uganda. You don't know that it doesn't.

    But, hey, don't let reality stand in your way of bigot bashin'.

    If you believe that the police are actively trying to catch this person. I just don't trust the Ugandan police, and point to where I am "bigot bashing" please.

    Who is tying this to anything other than the vigilantist anti-gay propaganda that has been disseminated by authoritarian and extreme religious groups across many African countries? That I use the expression "irresponsible vitriol" does not mean I'm blaming Sarah Palin. If I accused you of being "economical with the truth" does not mean I'm linking your diatribe with the 1986 Spycatcher trial - it's just that such a phrase was coined then and is a useful and evocative expression. Your own partisan perspective is blinding you to THIS issue, nothing to do with US domestic politics.

    Hatred brought to you by the evangelicals...

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/04/wo...anda.html?_r=1

    For three days, according to participants and audio recordings, thousands of Ugandans, including police officers, teachers and national politicians, listened raptly to the Americans, who were presented as experts on homosexuality. The visitors discussed how to make gay people straight, how gay men often sodomized teenage boys and how “the gay movement is an evil institution” whose goal is “to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity.”
    And there is a lot of evidence that the Evangelical movement is directly involved with the Ugandan government and their attempts to ban homosexuality.

    I fear that this guy is only one of many.. gone and to come.. to die from the radical Christian elements around the world.
