In our advance reporting on last week’s World Congress of Families conference — the first time this annual global gathering of social conservative activists was held in the U.S. — we contrasted the organizers’ public disavowal of homophobia with their well-documented anti-gay record, such as their decision to honor Theresa Okafor of Nigeria with the “Woman of the Year Award.” Throughout last week’s conference, Okafor, who serves as WCF’s regional director in Africa, defended harsh anti-gay laws in her own country and others, including Uganda...

In a speech to the Family Research Council yesterday, National Organization for Marriage chairman John Eastman said that he hoped Uganda’s supreme court would “in short order” reconsider a harsh anti-gay bill that it threw out on a technicality last year. The law would impose life imprisonment in some cases and would criminalize the “promotion” of homosexuality. Eastman quoted Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s insistence that the new law was “provoked by western groups who come to our schools and try to recruit children into homosexuality."... MORE

Shortly after Russia passed its new spate of anti-gay laws, Glenn Beck said he was so offended by one Russian commentator who called for the mass killing of gays and lesbians that he would “stand with GLAAD” against the growing tide of anti-gay bigotry and “hetero-fascism” in the country. At the same time, however, Beck was heaping praise on anti-gay activists such as Mat Staver, the Liberty Counsel attorney who endorsed draconian anti-gay laws in Russia and Malawi. Then, this weekend, Beck took the same stand against growing Russian “hetero-fascism”... MORE

Ugandan evangelist Troy Smith has built a partnership with the American Family Association through the Thomas Street Coffee Co., and he recently appeared on Bryan Fischer’s show “Focal Point” to promote the group’s work in the East African nation. Fischer, never the one to pass up an opportunity to talk about gay people, asked Smith about his views on Uganda’s draconian Anti-Homosexuality Act, a law that Fischer said “honors God’s standard of sexuality.” Smith said he shared Fischer’s support for the law, adding that the anti-gay law...

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
