Hateful, Homophobic, Bigoted, Right Wing Politician Invites Legislator Who Endorses Imprisoning Gays Into His House

Oh, did I s ay "right winger"? I meant Barack Obama, the President of the United States. And who is the guy he's allowing into the White House? How about a dude in Uganada who wrote the law whereby gay folks can be imprisoned or executed?

David Bahati, the MP who authored Uganda's anti-homosexuality bill, is expected to attend a prayer breakfast with US president Barack Obama.

Bahati told the Ugandan newspaper Sunday Monitor he would be attending the National Prayer Breakfast on February 4th.

The event usually attended by the president, who the newspaper described as a "gays-tolerant liberal president".

The breakfast is organised by The Fellowship – a secretive conservative Christian organisation which is also known as The Family. Its members include politicians, religious leaders and corporate executives.

Bahati may be asked to speak at the event, which will also be attended by Congress members and Cabinet secretaries. Previous speakers have included Tony Blair, Bono and Mother Theresa.

Uganda's president Yoweri Museveni signalled last week that he was stepping back from the bill, which would execute gays in some circumstances.

He said his country must consider its "foreign interests" and cited world leaders such as British prime minister Gordon Brown, who had expressed his concern about the proposed legislation.

Bahati, the MP for Ndorwa West, has refused to back down, saying his bill will "protect the traditional family".

Wow. Funny, I don't recall seeing this splashed all over the American Media.

Meanwhile....

Yeah, I know. I know. It's the McCain folks. But at least they are doing more than the Clintons, Obamas, Carters, or Kennedys.
