I'm just glad this Rick Warren guy doesn't have any ties to anyone in high office in the US. Oh wait...
If passed this legislation will most likely form the pretext of a government sponsored witch-hunt against homosexuals!!

Please find time to sign and share these petitions with as many people as possible, so as to bring media, public and government attention to this attrocity in the making: -

The following is for UK at ExPats only;

If anyone finds any more online petitions to sign can they send them on, or include them as part of this discussion. 

And if anyone has any ideas as to how we can make a difference, I'd like to hear more.  

- Thanks.
Thanks, Christopher.

The "witch-hunt" is one of the scariest parts of this:

This new draft bill includes a provision that could lead to the imprisonment for up to three years of anyone, including heterosexual people, who fails to report within 24 hours the identities of everyone they know who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, or who supports human rights for people who are.

I think in Uganda they have regular witch-hunts, and now gay witch-hunts. I'd have expected the Westboro Baptist Church to support this, but now others in America support it or do nothing about it.
Please write letters of protest to the following people.

Here is a Ugandan GLBT organization, if you wish to sign up or offer any support or help in any way: Sexual Minorities Uganda at www.sexualminoritiesuganda.org.
Excellent stuff, I was going to a do a search for them myself but surfing the net at work is difficult, not to mention contra-indicated by my contract.

I'll get writing when I get home. Thanks for doing the leg work for me.
Thank you. I've written to everyone except the Ambassadors, and I hope to do that this week.
As soon as you saw the word Pastor, all supprise was gone. So long as it's permissable for religions to create Hate Groups for which they can vent their anger and discrimination, while the rest of the people allow it to happen without comment, nothing will change.
Some small developments, nothing to write home about; though I suspect Christians might be unduly appeased by such a "generous" concession: -

Interesting article and Care2.com does petitions as well, I'll flag up the links as and when I find them; but this article's - in itself - worth the effort.
