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

"For its part, the Family Research Council, which has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for its “demonizing lies about the LGBT community,” continues to heap praise on President Museveni’s theocratic aspirations."

Isn't it nice that we have our own home grown hateful jackazzes like this? Of course, we have been exporting this tripe forever, through our "christian mercenaries" program, only the Lutheran church I grew up in as a child called them missionaries. It is they who laid the seeds in Africa for this kind of abomination. These people are the sick ones, the perverted ones, not they whom they persecute. Funny too as they purport to follow Christ and His rule was NEVER persecute, love. I guess they must have misunderstood that part. Fools.

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.

Sicko perverts who call themselves 'christians' in the name of their god and Jesus.

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...}

"I wish we could deport the whole FauxChristian Reich movement to Uganda!" Yvonne and Lois - I know you didn't mean that literally!
Ugandans are PEOPLE, too, not "animals", not "sub-humans", and they DESERVE a good government, as much as WE do! They are NOT, "by nature", according to Gay people who have actually BEEN there, "anti-Gay" or filled with hate and prejudice against Gays - they kindof IGNORE the issue, left to themselves! That is, they hardly make a distinction - I've not been there myself, of course, this is just what I've read in Seattle Gay News.
We ARE in fact, EXPORTING OUR CHRISTIAN RIGHT to Uganda - this is NOT a "native growth" - those politicians in Uganda making hay off of being anti-Gay are WELL-FUNDED BY THE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN RIGHT. If you have bought a Chick-fil-A sandwich recently, YOU ARE FUNDING THE KILL-THE-GAYS POLITICIANS IN AFRICA. This gives anyone in Uganda with Political Ambitions A CLEAR ADVANTAGE OVER EVERYONE ELSE - to get enormous amounts of money FROM THE AMERICANS. The American Religious groups funding the African politicians, of course, RAISE THAT MONEY HERE AND IT IS OF COURSE TAX-FREE, because they are Churches!
The Christian Right groups have not been very successful HERE with their anti-Gay agenda - what they DO INTEND, is when they are SUCCESSFUL in Africa, to BRING THAT "SUCCESS" BACK TO THE U.S. AGAIN. THEN they think, they will be STRONG ENOUGH to be successful HERE.
What this IS, is PLANNED GENOCIDE AGAINST ALL GAY PEOPLE. By the modern Definitions of Genocide {look it up}. FIRST Africa {Uganda, Kenya, Liberia, etc....}, THEN the U.S.... The Right has stated they want to ELIMINATE HOMOSEXUALITY from the face of the Earth...
Again, this is ALL ABOUT POLITICAL POWER.
"Hate" is nothing but a MEANS TO POWER - MANIPULATION - like slick propaganda, etc....

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.
