Watch:: Gay Ugandan, Bishop Gene Robinson, and Harry Knox at 'American Prayer Hour' Press Conference

Ugandan

Yesterday I posted about a press conference announcing the American Prayer Hour, the multi-city LGBT response to the National Prayer Breakfast.

The group writes: "While The National Prayer Breakfast is ostensibly a benign event, it is hosted by a secretive fundamentalist organization, The Family, which is directly tied to the draconian 'Kill the Gays' bill in Uganda. We strongly urge those invited to the National Prayer Breakfast to reconsider attending the event. Instead, they can join us at our American Prayer Hour."

Watch the gay Ugandan seeking asylum who was forced to conceal his identity, Bishop Gene Robinson, and HRC Religion and Faith Project Director Harry Knox speak at the presser,

  1. Would it be inappropriate to make a fat albert reference here? ...yup. Seriously, the best they could do was this? Why not a hat, shades and surgical mask?

  2. Rape as a "cure" for Lesbian women and as a punishment for gay men. Well.

  3. Please take my sincere thanks for posting and raising the issue over and over about Gay people in Uganda. It is not for me or you here in the fat west, but for the whole world that we must make it known that we can once in a while get over our self obsessions and see what is really going on. That you for showing us that leadership all over derides and condemns the actions of Uganda. However, we as gay people must also add our strong voice to the chorus for it to mean anything. We have to look at our own rights as resting on a foundation of human rights worldwide.
