Liberty Counsel attorney Matt Barber wants President Obama and Vice President Biden to stop bullying Uganda merely because its leaders are taking the courageous stand of jailing gay people and making homosexuality a crime punishable up to life imprisonment. In an article last week for OneNewsNow (the media arm of the American Family Association) entitled “Will U.S. bully nations if they are anti-'gay'?,” Barber expressed outrage that the Obama administration is treating gays as human beings. Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action and founder of Barbwire.... MORE

Anti-LGBT pastor Scott Lively is not happy with HBO host John Oliver’s recent commentary regarding the crackdown on the gay community in Uganda and Lively’s role in it. While Lively traveled to Uganda in 2009 to promote anti-LGBT views, he has since tried to distance himself from the country’s new draconian laws, and did not take kindly to Oliver’s suggestion that his lobbying efforts somehow played a role in enacting them. I’m calling out John Oliver as a liar and a fraud who couldn’t go ten minutes with me in an unscripted, unedited debate. Without his... MORE

Right-wing pastor Scott Lively is once again defending Uganda’s crackdown on its gay community, taking to BarbWire today to criticize new U.S. sanctions against Uganda along with the appointments of gay ambassadors and American support for LGBT events abroad. “[I]t is encouraging to see the Africans standing up to the United States and it’s ‘Babylonian’ State Department, which, at least in regards to sexual morality and the LGBT agenda has truly become ‘The Great Satan’ of the world,” Lively writes. Still, it is encouraging to see the Africans... MORE

“God Loves Uganda,” a documentary about American evangelical involvement in inflaming anti-gay sentiment in that country, made its debut at last year’s Sundance Festival and reached a broader audience through this week’s broadcast on public television. The attention from this week’s broadcast has provoked a response from the International House of Prayer (IHOP). Filmmaker Ross Williams was given extensive access to IHOP leaders, including evangelist Lou Engle, who believes Uganda has a special prophetic destiny. The documentary includes footage of Engle at... MORE

Last week, GOP congressional candidate and Wisconsin state senator Glenn Grothman told the hard line anti-gay group Voice of Christian Youth America that Secretary of State John Kerry was wrong to condemn Uganda’s brutal anti-gay law because his words upset God. Grothman attacked Kerry’s condemnation of Uganda’s law, warning that the secretary of state will agitate God by sending “scientists to Africa to say how wonderful the homosexual lifestyle is.” “Look at what’s become of our country,” Grothman said. He claimed that while America once had... MORE

On The Janet Mefferd Show yesterday, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality praised “countries like Uganda and Jamaica” for refusing to “follow the American path” and passing draconian anti-gay laws. He warned that the decriminalization of homosexuality opens a “Pandora’s box” and countries like Uganda “don’t want to learn this from America, we’ve become a very decadent nation and they want to preserve Judeo-Christian morals.” LaBarbera also waxed nostalgic for the good ol’ days when homosexuality was...

Yesterday, anti-gay pastor Scott Lively told Religious Right radio host Janet Mefferd that there is a Satanic, socialist “conspiracy” to “homosexualize the world” that can only be stopped by a “revolution.” Lively didn’t discuss this supposed gay-demonic conspiracy during his appearance today on NPR, but he didn’t exactly tone down his rhetoric either. Speaking with NPR’s Michel Martin, Lively defended Uganda’s harsh new anti-gay law, arguing that the “gay movement has really brought this on themselves” and that the law... MORE
