NTV, Uganda’s largest independent television station, is broadcasting a series titled American View, which portrays an how Uganda comes across in America. This segment, titled “Battle over Gay Rights” is probably more accurately described as a Ugandan view of the American view of Uganda.

The principal Ugandan spokesperson in this segment is Ethics and Integrity Minister Simon Lokodo, a defrocked Catholic priest, who raided a gay rights conference in Entebbe in February. In this segment, Lokodo points to a clause in the Ugandan Constitution which bars same-sex marriage and, incredibly, interprets that clause as a blanket ban on all activity related to LGBT advocacy, whether marriage is involved or not.

Hillary Clinton should put a hold on ALL the funds destined for Uganda and other nations with similar laws. Money talks… No matter what cultural differences there may be, Human Rights are Human Rights!

TALK now
MONEY later… maybe!

Well of course he does. In his worldview the only legitimate sex that can ever happen is sex in marriage. Since gay marriage is outlawed gay sex is outlawed.
