These three Americans remind me of Urkel……”did I do that?” Seriously, how can they be so unaware of the consequences of their talk about Uganda being a target of the gay movement. They preach and teach that the gay movement has a dark agenda and are a huge threat to Christians and whip people into a frenzy and then want to claim they were somehow duped.
Anti-Gay Evangelicals attempt To Distance Themselves From Ugandan Anti-Gay Bill They Inspired
Ten months ago, three American evangelicals trooped off to Uganda and, using the power of their words, helped convince officials there to create the Anti-Homosexuality Bill of 2009, that would make it illegal — and punishable by death — to be gay. If you hang in long enough while reading the New York Times article on the matter, the reporter eventually gets around to naming them!
The three Americans who spoke at the conference — Scott Lively, a missionary who has written several books against homosexuality, including “7 Steps to Recruit-Proof Your Child”; Caleb Lee Brundidge, a self-described former gay man who leads “healing seminars”; and Don Schmierer, a board member of Exodus International, whose mission is “mobilizing the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality” — are now trying to distance themselves from the bill.
At this point, that’s sort of like the Velvet Underground attempting to distance themselves from “rock music.”
But for his part, Don Schmierer says he feels “duped,” and that he had “no idea some Ugandans were contemplating the death penalty for homosexuality” and that “some of the nicest people I have ever met are gay people.”
