Uganda “Kill The Gays” Author Claims 40 Companies “Recruiting Minors in the Gay Business”

It’s very difficult to know what to make of this. Ugandan M.P. David Bahati, author of the draconian Anti-Homosexuality Bill which would impose the death sentence on gay people, gave a talk to “thousands of parents” at a Kampala Kindergarten Association event at a Kampala suburb, in which he warned parents to watch their children closely during the upcoming Christmas holidays:

In the past, the media have captured children taking alcohol and smoking narcotics, especially during holidays, with parents, sometimes unknowingly providing facilitation in form of cash to the children. But Mr Bahati, who moved the Anti-homosexuality Bill that is yet to be brought to Parliament for discussion, warned that close to 40 companies were recruiting minors in the gay business.

“We have already reported to the Ministry of Internal Affairs about these funders and parents need to be careful with where their children go. They could be targeted this Christmas season,” Mr Bahati said.

I finally read C STREET by Jeff Sharlet.
His expose of the influence a cadre of religious Right politicians have on laws and policy intended to bring about a “Christian America” includes an intriguing interview with Bahati. The man may or may not be more corrupt than most politicians in his country but he is certainly fervent in his Pentecostal way. It’s worth reading.
