Honestly, I think about Uganda every other day, and all I tell myself is that I can only pray for those going through this horrible time. It's sad.

Horrible disrespect for a human. May he rest in peace and all those hate mongers live in hell.

Last year in Senegal a group of straight Christians dug up the body of a gay man from his grave and beat his body with shovels and spit on him and kicked his body.

You can put the blame for all of this psychotic and mentally ill behaviior right at the feet of the religious leaders of African countries. In Uganda this hatred and homophobia was brought there by U.S. Evangelicals in 2009. I will never forgive them.

is a shame once again Africa is being corrupt by Europeans - if they look into thier history before the euripean came the gays were the teachers- carried the news from village to village the ones who were considered the closest to the spirit.

JBK!

Man's inhumanity to man never ceases to amaze me but this is grotesque.
Thank you for that information Doug.

When Rick Warren and other Christian Right extremists here in the US paid off creepy preachers in Uganda to stir up heterosexism and AIDSphobia, it was bound to end up badly.

If you want to know the truth about homosexuality in sub-Saharan Africa before the colonial bigots arrived, read BOY WIVES AND FEMALE HUSBANDS:STUDIES OF AFRICAN HOMOSEXUALITIES by Murray and Roscoe.

I agree about Rick Warren and his co-conspirators being responsible.And how nice he was able to speak at President Obama's Swearing In Ceremony.

As one Ugandan gay activist said in a video-taped interview: "The colonials did not import homosexuality to Africa. The colonials imported homophobia to Africa." I am not sure if it was David Kato who made those remarks.

Terrible. But the wonderful bright side is the BRAVERY and SOLIDARITY of his gay friends. We here in the U.S. can learn a thing or two about how they stick up for each other, speak out and stand strong in the face of frightening opposition. Black gay and bi men here in the old great U.S. can learn a lot from this as we live incredibly free lives where we can do and love however we please.

We should all wish we have friends like David Kato.

Once again, based on comments here, some people are blaming others for their own misfortune. Are people of Africa incapable of thinking for themselves that they always have to be taking what others are saying for their truth? I think we are too quick to point a finger at Europe, witchcraft, etc. instead of taking responsibility for our actions and also introspecting with an open mind that is willing to admit that it is only us - Africans - who can change this continent and no one else. There is still a huge amout of ignorance on our continent and those among us who have seen a bit of the light need to come up with strategies to educate those still in the dark instead of doing exactly what that priest was doing to Kato, JUDGE. Please grow up people let's get on with it allready!
