Tag: Kill the Gays Bill

Accommodationists to Mass Murder?

So, if you haven’t seen this, it appears that David Bahati, the main sponsor of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, believes he is invited and will be attending the Family’s National Prayer Breakfast in February.

If you’ve been living in a cave for the last six months, Uganda’s anti-homosexuality bill includes the death penalty for homosexuals.

In addition, the bill provides for sentences for non-homosexuals knowing homosexuals and not reporting them to authorities, and extradition from other countries (presumably including OURS) Ugandan nationals or others who committed the “offense” of homosexuality on Ugandan soil, and long prison sentences for homosexual “tendencies”.  If this bill were passed in Uganda the way it is, you could literally be imprisoned for looking at a person of the same sex the wrong way, and I quote:

4, Attempt to commit homosexuality.

(1) A person who attempts to commit the offence of homosexuality commits a felony and is liable on conviction to imprisonment seven years.

(2) A person who attempts to commit the offence of aggravated homosexuality commits an offence and is liable on conviction to imprisonment for life.

So, apparently, certain questions have been raised about this visit

Did the sponsors of the National Prayer Breakfast actually extend the invitation for David Bahati to visit?

If so, what will be the position of the Obama Administration on this?  Will he be permitted to come?
