    Saying that TheCall Uganda had no knowledge of the bill is as egregious as saying that TheCall California had no knowledge of Prop. 8.

    As for Engle’s claim that he has never promoted violence against gays: does he really not understand that people other than his followers can Google him and find any number of speeches where he does just that?

    The rest of the world is well aware that he has “compassion for those struggling with same-sex attraction.” What he has not yet done is admit that he’s been waging open war for years on gay people who are not struggling with anything but discrimination, and only wish to live their lives as they see fit. But the evidence is there on the Internet for all to see, world without end, amen.

    Why does this man think he has a right to be judged by his (recently) stated intentions, rather than his actions?

    wow. this dude really needs to hire a new PR consultant.

    i suspect that when he’s on a roll in front of a like-minded audience, he speaks his mind passionately… blurts it all out. then when the complaints and negative attention surface, he attempts damage control. i’m wondering how some of his extreme anti-gay statements could have been expressed in a more gracious or christ-like manner that would have made them more acceptable. hate delivered in holy gift boxes? …and how genuine is that apology?

    his ugandan hosts are likely to get his anti-gay juices flowing. then he gets to blindly drop 2010′s nuclear bomb on Uganda’s LGBT community. then after the consequences of his visit become apparent and after months of criticism, he gets to say, “oops! it came out all wrong. i should have been more gracious and christ-like while praying, fasting and discussing what to do about the homosexual problem faced by ugandan pastors and legislators who just wanna protect their traditional family. it’s not my fault, i didn’t start that fire… remember, i love those struggling with same sex attractions.”

    heard it all before.

    So, Engle didn’t want himself to be tarnished by any accusation that he wants gays locked up, etc… Isn’t it a little too late for that?

    “It’s unclear what message Engle will deliver at the rally itself.”

    True.

    We do know, however, *how* the message will be delivered: like Greek folk music. He’ll start out at a relaxed pace in a normal speaking voice, and he’ll get faster and LOUDER as he goes, until he’s full-on screaming his hysterics into the microphone with his WWF voice.

    As you said, past is prologue, and this guy is pretty predictable this way :)
