Watch LIVE: Obama Speaks at National Prayer Breakfast

President Obama speaks at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. at 8 am ET.

The activist group GetEQUAL has been holding a protest outside the breakfast which is sponsored by "The Family", the group behind anti-gay American evangelism in Uganda which served as a catalyst to the proposed "kill the gays" bill.

GetEQUAL writes: "In the wake of the murder of Ugandan gay activist, David Kato, and the pending deportation of Brenda Namigadde from the UK back to Uganda, we believe it is imperative that “The Family” be exposed not only for their role as organizer of the National Prayer Breakfast, but for their relationship with many of our legislators and their influence on world affairs, including the annihilation of LGBT people worldwide. On the morning of February 3, we'll gather on the sidewalk outside the Prayer Breakfast to educate the attendees on “The Family's” role in this annual event, to stand up to their bigotry, and to stop the Family’s interference in Ugandan affairs, which itself has been called a trial run for what they want to happen in the U.S."
