You might remember the story about the Ugandan newspaper printing the pictures of the supposed top 100 homosexuals with a rather "obvious" statement demanding their death.

Sad news with video here


Kampala, Uganda (CNN) -- A Ugandan gay rights activist whose name was published on a list of the nation's "top homosexuals" was bludgeoned to death in his home near the capital, his lawyer said Thursday. A neighbor found David Kato dead and notified authorities, according to the lawyer, John Onyango. Kato's money and some clothes were missing after the attack, Onyango said.
It was unclear whether Kato's killing was linked to his gay rights activism or a front-page story in a Ugandan tabloid that reignited anti-gay sentiments late last year.
The story included a list of "top 100 homosexuals" with their photos, addresses and a banner with the words "Hang Them." Kato's name and picture were on the list.

Yeah...it looks rather bleak to be gay in many African nations.  One of these days I need to either buy or check if the local library has the book about The Family.  Those bastards are just one more group dirtying the name of Americans overseas, which we don't particularly need if you ask me.  We've enough trouble rabid theists stirring up shit domestically, people in Africa shouldn't be murdered because of our citizenry stirring up people in other nations to create their theocratic utopia.  

 

Anyway I'd certainly welcome homosexuals who're emigrating from backward nations that want them dead to move to the US.  I know we're not a perfect nation, but I don't particularly think any one nation is particularly perfect.
