The link didn't work. Did they mention that it is American preachers pushing this over there?

I have heard from other sources that the tide is turning a bit in Uganda that the movement for tolerance is winning.  Here is an article that describes the first ever Gay Pride event in Uganda this year  www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdesk/... Probably not as well attended as you would expect but it is a start.

Yes, it worked, but I left right away. I don't bother with websites that blast commercials at me. Not your fault though.

Desperate grandstanding -- should not be tolerated by the global community.

Mod note:  the opening post link worked for me.  I also changed the title of thread.


I did a second edit on the title now my coffee has kicked in.  Tongue Out
