    Re: Uganda gay rights activist David Kato killed

    My deepest sympathies.

    Evangelicals should be banned from Uganda - heck, how about most of Africa until they are vetted (along with any other religious people seeking to do missionary work). They are spreading the hate and poison against Gays further inflamed by the religiosity and paranoia found in most of Africa. They can get away with it there when they wouldn't in US
    I wouldn't trust the police to capture who killed him and I have a bad feeling he will not be the last victim of homophobia.

    That damn newspaper didn't help to

    We should replace them with Muslims. Right?

    What makes you think one would be or should be replaced by another? You simply produced a classic non sequitur.

    I was being sarcastic.

    Also pointing out the stupidity at, now, blaming this on Christians doing missionary work. First it was straight up bigots, now Christians. Whose next on the blame list, Lynard Skynard?

    Having met many different types of Christian Missionaries in various parts of Africa and still having some old contacts around the central Africa region - I can say that evangelical and pentecostal missionaries in Africa are pretty dangerous zealots. I do however agree an earlier point you made regarding the cause for the murder being unknown as yet.

    As yet however, the case in Uganda is ongoing so I'm not making any judgements. I also doubt (looking at the universally accepted hostility to homosexuality in Uganda) that the police will be looking too hard for the murderer of a gay man if they don't already have him in prison. As for the cause for the murder - that may never be truly uncovered. Many african police forces like to beat confessions out of their suspects so even if the current suspect being held confesses - he may have confessed just to stop the beating.

    But, just evangelicals; not jihadists.

It's not "crap" in the sense that it's false hype to try and make homosexuals look persecuted. In this case it is fact that they are persecuted, and the facts show this man was put into a paper that called for his hanging and later beaten to death.
