Congress Is Holding a Hearing on Uganda’s ‘Kill The Gays’ Bill. Let’s Suggest Who Should Testify!

The Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, a non-partisan U.S. Congressional committee dedicated to exactly what you think, will next week hold a hearing on Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill. It’ll be chaired by Rep. Tammy Baldwin, who sits on the commission; a witness list has not been released (or, perhaps, created). Please, please, please let them call Scott Lively to testify. On camera. Because we need more of this.

    This is nice that Uganda is getting the scrutiny desired to right human rights decay that is taking place here.
    Congress should also dig deeper and inquire about human rights abuses that has been taking place in Uganda including the killings of more than 30 Ugandans in the September demonstrations against government corruption and refusal of Ugandans to assemble and travel within their country.
    These abuses have to be investigated and perpetrators threatened to be taken to the International Court of Justice.
    This is the only way dictators in Uganda will be impressed not to abuse Human Rights of their own people and those of other nations.

    Seems Ugandan politicians are trying to backtrack on their hate legislatio. Not for ethical or humanitarian reasons of course, but because they are worried about their handouts

    “When I was at the Commonwealth conference, what was [the Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper] talking about? The gays. UK prime minister Gordon Brown … what was he talking about? The gays,” said Museveni.

    The US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, had also called him to express strong concerns about the proposed law, he said. “It’s a foreign policy issue, and we must handle it in a way that does not compromise our principles but also takes into account our foreign policy interests.”
