Uganda’s Kill-the-Gays Bill Comes to Minnesota

Now that Minnesota’s gearing up for a marriage equality battle, the National Organization for Marriage and the Minnesota Family Council have opened MNForMarriage.com… and what’s this? A link to the Minnesota Family Council website which calls gays animal-fucking, shit-eating, child-rapists. If that shit eating part sounds familiar, it’s probably because it’s exactly what pastor Martin Ssempa said to convince Ugandan citizens to support David Bahati’s “Kill the Gays” bill.

Jeremy Hooper from Good As You makes sure to mention:

“This is not some fringe group devoid of press or a following. This is MInnesota’s big time “family group,” who just last week hosted both Newt Gingrich [where he met the rainbow sprinkle protestor] and Congresswoman Bachmann at a fancy shmancy fundraising dinner. This is LSO Minnesota’s most prominent voice of “marriage protection” — a voice that will take on new prominence now that the GOP-controlled state legislature has passed a marriage discrimination bill. This is the team that is working right there, side by side with NOM and the Catholic Church to put discrimination into the state constitution.

The Uganda hate pastor Ssempa also called homosexuality a sickness. The Minnesota Family Council must feel the same way because their Homosexuality Resources page only lists “ex-gay” organizations focused on “curing” or “praying away” the gay. Yes, the same ex-gay organizations that the American Psychological Association—the largest psychological organization in the United States—has said do more harm than good and perpetuate violence against gays.

GASP! Surely the National Organization for Marriage, the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy, and the Minnesota Family Council don’t want to perpetuate violence against gays, right?

The lines between these groups and the promoters of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” get fuzzier and fuzzier by the day.
