It's been a tense 48 hours -- just days ago it looked like the Ugandan Parliament was going to use mounting violence in the streets over a potentially rigged election to force a monstrous anti-gay bill through Parliament.
Despite a penal code that criminalizes homosexual acts with penalties of upwards of 10 years of imprisonment, Uganda has witnessed an astounding flowering of gay and lesbian organizations in recent years.
One cannot help but draw the connection between the murder of Ugandan LGBT rights activist Pasikali Kashusbe and the recent calls for violence and bloodshed from American Evangelicals visiting Uganda in support of the "Kill the Gays" Bill.
The Family Research Council claims to stand against the lgbt community because it believes in "traditional morality." This seems to include opposition to a resolution denouncing the Ugandan "kill the gays" bill:
Rather than argue that my film is persecuting them, evangelicals should speak out against violence and intolerance. I encourage evangelical Christian leaders to embrace the heroes of my film, who are in fact faith leaders who are spreading a Christian message.
