On the old boards we had a thread about the attempts in Uganda to pass a law punishing homosexuality by death, and about the fact that the law and related homophobia was incited by visits in March 2009 by a group of American evangelicals, who held rallies and workshops in Uganda discussing how to make gay people straight, how gay men sodomized teenage boys and how “the gay movement is an evil institution” intended to “defeat the marriage-based society.”

Article. Of course now that the foreseeable has happened, the evangelists are distancing themselves and saying that they had nothing to do with it.

Awful, awful, awful. Awful. I don't know what else to say except that this makes me want to curl up into a ball and cry.

I'm not surprised in the least, I'm just angry and depressed and disgusted.

Thanks for posting this Tofulish! I posted this on FB earlier this week and felt so sick and horrified. As if it is not bad enough that many African nations already are very homophobic in laws and actions, the damn American evangelists have to go over there to stir the pot with their anti-gay rhetoric. I find it abhorrent and another reason that keeps me away from church. My uber-religious-hypocritical relatives did a great job with making me never want to be one of them and stories like this seal the deal for me. I don't know how they can live with themselves. Hate preaching. Words eventually become actions for others.

ETA: There have been times in my adulthood where I literally feel sick if I have to sit in a religious institution for too long (i.e. for weddings, baptisms, etc.). I just associate most of them with hate mongering. I know this isn't always the case, but with my experiences, it has felt that way. They take such pretty buildings and fill them with fear and lies and prejudice that I've been classically conditioned to feel ill inside them.
