"Ugandan MP Proposes Gay Death-Penalty Bill - Are American Anti-Gay Groups Responsible?"Steve Williams wonders on Care2.

In Africa, they can capitalize on the governmental and religiously sanctified homophobic genocide already taking place while simultaneously establishing a new "home" for their disenfranchised Anglican Dioceses.
