Tony Perkins: Uganda President ‘Leading His Nation’ With ‘Kill The Gays’ Bill

Tony Perkins today praised Uganda‘s president for “leading his nation” with the “Kill The Gays” bill, and called Uganda “a modern example of a nation prospered by God.”

Perkins made the stunning remarks today via Twitter:

 

Uganda has taken up its infamous Kill The Gays bill again, despite warning s from the international community, and despite likely withholding of foreign aid by some nations, including Great Britain. President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton have yet to weigh in on this latest round.

Some are claiming the death penalty has been removed from the Kill The Gays bill, but this is the third time the mainstream media has reported this “fact” is as many years. In other words, claiming the death penalty has been removed is a regular tactic for Uganda’s politicians.

The mainstream media has never ever reported that the death penalty has been added back in, yet they have no problem repeatedly reporting that it has again been removed.

Perkins is the head of the Southern Poverty Law Center-vertified anti-gay hate group, Family Research Council.

This summer, Perkins used the shooting at his Washington, D.C. headquarters, where a security guard was shot in the arm, to claim victim status.

Uganda is a "modern example of a nation prospered by God". Has he actually visited it? Or at least read up on it? He certainly has low standards. If he means it will improve by virtue of its Kill-the-Gays Bill, he's dreaming – and will probably blame us LGBT folk and our allies when it doesn't.

Oh, I don't know about that. Perhaps what he means by "prospered by God" is that they are somewhat better off than the stone age tribe that is the subject of the old testament. Probably some of them have indoor plumbing, not present for the poor people wandering in the desert for 40 years trying to get to a destination that was what – two weeks away (on foot). So yeah, prospered is probably the right term. Of course, that desert tribe wasn't fighting political battles about civil rights the whole way.

I seriously doubt that God would approve of putting gay people in prison for simply being gay. Further proof that Tony Perkins is the antithesis of what it means to be a Christian. Vile human being is more like it.
