Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” Bill Author Barred From Washington, D.C. Conference

Mike Jones at Change.org has learned that Ugandan MP David Bahati, who was slated to come to Washington, D.C. to attend next week’s conference of the International Consortium of Governmental Financial Management, will not be permitted entry into the conference:

According to Doug Hadden, the Vice President of Communications for the International Consortium of Governmental Financial Management, “David Bahati will not be attending this conference.” Bahati, for his part, is still telling folks, that he is attending. But conference organizers have said they will not allow him to attend, and are hiring extra security to make sure that he cannot attend. An official statement from ICGFM says: “It is clear that his participation would be contradictory to our mission.”

Warren Throckmorton confirms that Bahati, author of Uganda’s proposed Anti-Homosexuality Billstill thinks he’s going to the conference, but Hadden told Throckmorton via email that “the ICGFM Executive Committee has agreed that his attendance is not consistent with the mission of the organization.”

Not consistant with hoping human beings will continue to breath in and out. Good, the man is just ¨opionated¨ about LGBTI Ugandans, he wants to ¨kill them all¨…ask Jeff Sharlet.

Given the fact that he will be aggressively barred from attending the conference, the next question becomes will he even be issued a visa to enter the US.

Why don’t they knock off the political correctness and just say he’s an advocate for murdering and incarcerating innocent people? Sheesh!

I especially love this part.

The US should declare David Bahati a Persona non grata.

I’m sure he’ll see this as evidence of the dominance of homosexual political power in Washington.

Dear Box Turtle and Faithful Readers,

Let us cosign this article and make clear to President Obama and the Ugandan President that any country which has laws to suppress, arrest, or infringe upon a person’s rights solely based upon that person’s gender preference is criminal and should NOT receive ANY support from the Government of the United States.

Please President Obama, we people of the United States demand the Freedom of Personal Preference be not deemed a crime. Help fight to liberate the suppressed Gay People of Uganda.

We Thank You, Sir
B.T. Readers

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.
