Bahati To Attend The National Prayer Breakfast

More

The Christianist author of the Uganda bill that would demand that people inform on gay family members (pr face legal penalties, and would arrest, silence and execute gay men and women will attend the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington next month. It seems to me that if Bahati attends, the president cannot pray alongside him. To implicitly endorse this looming pogrom as something even faintly Christian is abhorrent. The same goes, I might add, for all Christians who oppose the demonization and elimination of an already persecuted minority. Or Bahati needs to be told he cannot attend.
