Stop exporting hate in the name of religion!

A Ugandan gay rights advocate was bludgeoned to death in his home this week. His name had been among those listed in an anti-gay magazine, under the headline “Hang them!”

Right-wing U.S. extremists have fuelled a climate of hatred in Uganda – and it’s got to stop.

* A few months before a bill was introduced in Uganda that would make homosexuality punishable by death, Scott Lively and two other anti-gay ministers from America held an anti-gay conference in Uganda.

* Prominent right-wing leader Lou Engle visited Uganda this year to preach against “the threat of homosexuality” (portrayed as a “satanic attack against families”) at a rally that focused on prayers for the bill.

* And now, Georgia-based pastor Carl Ellis Jenkins is opening 50 new churches in Uganda that exist to preach against “bad morals, including homosexuality” and they’re expanding across East Africa.

Stoking fires of hostility isn’t religion – it’s blasphemy. Tell Lou Engle, Scott Lively, and Carl Ellis Jenkins to stop exporting hate in the name of religion.

To tell Lou, Scott and Carl that what they have done is wrong please sign the petition here

Querido Familia,


I really can’t stand for this. With all the good work other churches of the Faith are doing in Africa (AIDS clinics, Sex Ed., Free Kitchens, Peace work, etc), why do these clowns have to come into town only offering their own misinterpretations of the gospel? Why can’t they serve the people like the Episcopalian, Presbyterian, and other churches are doing in the continent?


Yours In Christ,

It’s good to ‘see’ you! Have you been on vacation? I haven’t seen your loving presence around here for a little while.
