Scott Lively was one of three American activists to speak at an anti-gay conference in Kampala, Uganda on March 5-7, 2009. The other two participants were Exodus International board member Don Schmierer and International Healing Foundation’s Caleb Lee Brundidge. Two weeks after the conference, Lively bragged that he had delivered a “nuclear bomb against the gay agenda in Uganda.” Box Turtle Bulletin » BTB Videos: Scott Lively Delivers His “Nuclear Bomb” To Uganda

The Fellowship, also known as The Family, is an international organization founded in 1935 and has been led by Douglas Coe since 1969. Its members include scores of high ranking U.S. government officials, corporate executives, heads of religious and humanitarian aid organizations, and non-U.S. leaders and ambassadors. It has been described by prominent evangelical Christians as one of the most politically well-connected fundamentalist organizations in the US. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fel...n_organization)

It's created quite a stir here in the UK , especially with the BBC having a "should Gay people be killed" ? debate... The BBC claims it was only trying to promote a debate but it did not look good for them... BBC attacked for debate on gay execution - Online, Media - The Independent

I guess if those fruitcakes can't promote their particular brand of hatred and bigotry then it was the "logical" next step for them, to go and try to influence the debate somewhere in Africa... I wish there were incitations to violence laws in the US so they could be arrested if they ever returned to America.

Let the vile creatures live in Uganda for the rest of their lives and seize their assets so they can experience what living in a country like Uganda can be like for those with very little.

The terrible thing is how many people subscribe to this hateful rhetoric and how well connected the organisation seems to be in some respects. It makes me want to retch that in the 21 st century, here we are still spouting hatred, intolerance and bigotry and treating other human beings as disposable.

Maybe the debate should be "should fundamentalist extremist Christians be put to death" ?

Jesus would weep ( if he ever existed) . The Religion of Love indeed.

Although, I wonder if they know that many gay men refer to themselves as 'Family' when speaking of other gay men....

irony? Perhaps.
