Churches Rally For Anti-Gay Bill in Eastern Ugandan

It looks like we’re about to enter a marching season of sorts in Uganda among that country’s Pentecostal Christians. May marks the 50th “jubilee” of the Pentecostal movement, and American anti-gay firebrand Lou Engle is expected to hold a rally in Kampala on May 2. Today, NTV Uganda, the nation’s main independent television channel, reports on a rally staged by an estimated 400 people in the eastern city of Mbale demanding passage of the draconian Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

It was about a year ago in Mbale when a mob accosted a male couple in their home. When police were summoned, they broke into the home and arrested the couple. There are now reports that one of the men has since died under mysterious circumstances following his arrest and detention by police.

What are the MAJOR exports of Uganda ? Contacting American companies that purchase these goods for incorporation into products sold in America,and the boycott of such,would be a positive step towards shutting down the cash flow into Uganda and to it’s churches.

Boycott Starbucks would be a start.They are a MAJOR BUYER of UGANDAN coffee. I called them and they had “no idea” of any Ugandan crisis dealing with killing gays. Coffee is the MAJOR export of UGANDA. Robusta or Arabica are the MAIN types grown in UGANDA. Call Starbucks and tell them you will NOT be buying their products due to the direct support of the coffee industry in this draconian legislature.(800) 235-2883

And actually, about 90% of Uganda’s coffee goes to Europe. Very little of it comes to North America.

and besides that, poor ugandan farmers should not be forced to starve to death over the irresponsible political games of their leaders. they have enough to worry about… let’s keep our eyes on the perpetrators and minimize collateral damage…

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
