Speaking at yesterday's National Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both criticized Uganda's proposed extreme Anti Homosexuality Bill—which would include life imprisonment and/or death penalties for"aggravated homosexuality".
Said the President: "We may disagree about gay marriage, but surely we can agree that it is unconscionable to target gays and lesbians for who they are whether it's here in the United States or as Hillary mentioned, more extremely in odious laws that are being proposed, most recently in Uganda."
The New York Times posted the complete advance text of the president's planned speech. There was no mention of Uganda, gay rights or marriage equality, so it appears the President went off-script. Also: In addition to the Uganda mention, the Victory Fund reports Secretary Clinton said the Obama administration is “standing up for gays and lesbians who deserve to be treated as full human beings and "these are priorities of the Unitied States."
And Politico reports the guests at the head table with Obama and the First Lady are Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Clinton, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Rep. Charlie Wilson (D-OH), Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) and ... Tim Tebow.
