"The Anti-Homosexuality Bill was introduced in 2009, only a month after a seminar with American ministers about 'curing' homosexuality and the dangers of 'the gay movement.' Last year, an evangelical Christian from Missouri, Lou Engle, held an event in Uganda at which the bill was promoted (though after he left to travel home, he says). But Uganda, a poor and heavily Christian nation of 35 million with a large American missionary community, has long held its own conservative views on sexuality. Mr. Ssempa says his movement is about African culture, and while the United States has continued to debate its own societal values, similar conversations are happening here."

"At Kato’s funeral, the pastor warned gays to repent or face hell. Mourners stormed the pulpit and took away his microphone before police intervened and took him to safety. An excommunicated Anglican bishop then completed the ceremony, laying Kato to rest."

"The jury is still out on whether African Americans are actually more homophobic than anyone else (Could it be that homophobia is tied to wealth or education? Perhaps something like poverty or church attendance is a better predictor of it than is race?). But a tragedy like this –- one that appears to be motivated by homophobia -- makes me think that our focus shouldn't be on denying allegations that we’re the most backward group on this issue. Instead, maybe we could aim to lead the charge to make the world a decent and safe place for gay people to live, at home and abroad."

"I don't doubt that the phenomenon Okong'o names has merit- racial inferiority complexes are real. But the issue is complex, and I'm not sure if that's the primary factor in driving forward the current Ugandan anti-homosexuality bill. If it were, would we see so much critical rhetoric surrounding Western morals and influence being used in Uganda to promote the anti-homosexuality bill?"
