PBS NewsHour Covers Danger for Gays in Uganda and Re-emergence of Anti-Homosexuality Bill: VIDEO


PBS NewsHour did an excellent 8-minute piece last night on the re-emergence of the "kill the gays" bill in Uganda, slain activist David Kato, anti-gay evangelizing by American 'Christianists' like Scott Lively, Hillary Clinton's statement to the UN urging rights for LGBTs in Africa and abroad, and the dangerous political atmosphere for gays now.


Here's a companion article:

The bill's re-emergence this year is a direct, defiant result of the recent Obama administration move to use foreign aid to push gay rights. "Gay rights are human rights," declared Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

How Uganda's legislation fares this time around is anyone's guess. As journalists "parachuting in" to cover it, our recent experience may well serve as a proxy for how the legislation -- or homosexuality in general -- has become a third rail nobody wants to touch.

  1. Wow, an ad for Goldman Sacs first;
    then American Evangelicals stirring up their Christian hatred; and the USA still giving aid to this murderous country......what more is there to be said ?
    The religious sectarianism of US society is beginning to spill over into other continents, needless to say Africa and even Europe.

  2. Are you really going to blame America for this? This is the continent where albino children are murdered so their body parts can be used in magical potions...I don't think these people were modern sophisticates before the evangelicals got there. Blame this crape on very primitive thinking...the truth hurts...

  4. Yeah, a movement that got started by American Evangelicals, funded by millions in "faith-based assistance" funnelled to Africa by the Bush administration, further inflamed by the conservative-driven schism in the worldwide Anglican Communion is ALL OBAMA'S FAULT.

    What crap, what utter crap.

  5. It's time the US Government take away tax exempt status for every religious group that uses American Tax Dollars to promote a political agenda! These Evangelical Duche-Bags get to collect Sunday tithing to further their outrageous neo-political causes and they are exempt from paying taxes on property owned and operated by a government accepedt religion or religious sect.

  6. Uganda should be ejected from Queen Elizabeth's Commonwealth. It shouldn't even take this particular issue to do it, but this should surely push it over the top, given the pile of crap that has come before, with the government and military records, and treatment of certain ethnic groups within Uganda.
