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

Jim Burroway

December 5th, 2010

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
