In the past week the Family Research Council has been busy praising Uganda's commitment to Christian faith and "national repentance" -- even as the Ugandan Parliament once again takes up a bill that would legally mandate the persecution of LGBT people.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Cynthia Burack. Tony Perkins and The Family Research Council are the Christian equivalent to the Taliban. nothing but terrorists. Read and noted with disgust

The "Christian Right" is neither! I wish we could deport the whole FauxChristian Reich movement to Uganda!

What part of Christianity do these so called Christians practice? They must be Herodists....but wait...back in the day, they actually threw Christians to the Lions!

The Family Research Council are not Christians. They're so full of hatred towards those who are gay. It's pathetic. Revolting.

For the life of me, I can't understand what drives people to so much hate....scheming and plotting to destroy the lives of others. There are only so many hours in a day--can't people find a positive, loving, peaceful way to fill them?! I'm agree with Yvonne.

How can there be any room for Christ in Tony Perkin's heart when it's filled to overflowing with so much hatred? I believe the Lord would rather dwell in the heart of a persecuted gay man...

Time for Jesus to come back and give Perkins some taste of "judgement".

It is a common ploy for politicians to find and blame SCAPEGOATS for all sorts of problems; as Hitler scapegoated the Jews for all Germany's 1930's economic woes, as well as for losing WWI {"We were stabbed in the back by Jews and Bolsheviks, or we would've won!"}
Right now, the SCAPEGOATS of choice for Rightists everywhere, are Gays, LGBT people. After all, according to American Rightists, Gays and Lesbians were responsible for 9/11, Hurricanes, etc. {"Their immorality called down the Wrath of God!"} NOT Global Warming and the Oil Companies, NOT U.S. Foreign Policy, oh no! Just find some "outsider" group and blame THEM! a Distraction from the REAL problems... Keep those in power, away from real accountability...
"Hate" is just something people feel when they're upset... it is a DELIBERATE STRATEGY to AIM that Hate, at a Targeted Group... could be the Irish, or Quakers, an ethnic group or a religious group... just happens in this case to conveniently be the Gays... {who are everywhere}.

This is to "unite people", in this case Ugandans, to support their "Leader" and ARTIFICIALLY stir up a Hate that hardly existed before... Ugandans, according to Gay people who have traveled there, seem to have no indigenous history of anti-gay discrimination, this is just something whipped up by the Right and their Christian religionist allies who support the Right and oppose anything democratic or progressive...
THE WHOLE THING IS POLITICAL/RELIGIOUS. Swaying people to support non-democratic principles. Religion allying itself to uphold dictatorship - as it so very often does.
{The Ugandan Parliament being no more "pro-democratic" in its actions, than our Tea Party, very much a part of the same thing actually...}

The Family Research people are nothing but self righteous, deluded imbeciles acting as if the end justifies the means.
I saw a sign out in front of a Christian Bible Church, some years ago, not too long after 9/11, that proclaimed something like "God does not care how you serve Him, as long as you serve Him." My response was to write a letter to the pastor, saying that Islamic terrorists would love that concept, and that he owed it to his congregation to retract and apologize.
