First of all, I wanted to say hello to you--whoever is reading, and to thank the people who have amassed the materials at this wonderful site.
I am, probably not, strictly speaking a practicing Christian, but I have discovered a wonderful, wonderful sense of feeling peace, relief and love from the people here. I have taken great heart from you all. It has assisted me to put to rest the harm I have taken from homophobia propagated in the name of the Bible by Biblical literalism, in ultra conservatives, and gay-hating communities. E.g. Westborough.
But, I have rediscovered, through you, what a real Christian is and I am deeply grateful to you for your kindness and your love.
But, to the topic at hand. When I heard that Ugandan parliament was proposing revisions to their already cruel homosexual 'sodomy' laws--the death penalty for 'recidivist' homosexual offenders, and three years imprisonment for simply not reporting someone else's same-sex contact to authorities within 24 hours.
I was horrified. Not typically an activist at all, I found myself spending days at the computer tracing a way to try to do something--anything to help. I signed a petition by Avaaz

I then discovered three practicing 'ministers' in an international delegation, preaching god's hate of homosexuals in Uganda.
They are Scott Lively, Don Schmierer and Caleb Lee Brundidge.
