Uganda's "Kill the Gays" Bill Author to Attend National Prayer Breakfast in DC Tuesday

Uganda's Daily Monitor reported on Sunday that David Bahati, the author and main proponent of Uganda's "Kill the Gays" bill will be attending the annual National Prayer Breakfast tomorrow morning at the Washington Hilton, (where Ronald Reagan was shot) just blocks from the hub of  DC's gay community, DuPont Circle. Activists across the country are burning up the internet making plans for a massive protest at the event, which President Obama will be attending.

It remains to be seen of our "fierce advocate" will use the opportunity to condemn the proposed legislation which imposes the death penalty or life in prison for Uganda's gays and lesbians and three years in prison for anyone who fails to report known homosexuals to authorities.

Mob rule has already taken hold in Uganda with reports coming out in recent weeks that gays and lesbians are being attacked in the streets, causing most Ugandan queers to go into hiding. A lesbian couple was attacked by a lynch mob earlier this month. The attack was halted by police who took the women into custody. The couple somehow managed to escape the police and are now in hiding.
