Rachel Maddow hosted another segment last night (the first one is here) about Uganda’s proposed “Kill the Gays” law. She got some pretty…interesting responses from the Ex-Gay Industry representatives who worked with the Uganda government in March.
The news today is that the Uganda legislature is considering changing the death penalty for being gay to a life sentence.
More tomorrow (the easy money is on Rick Warren being one of the household names Rachel was talking about), but here’s a question to puzzle over in the meantime: Why isn’t this getting more news coverage? This proposed law would clearly be a danger both to gay and straight people on top of being a significant breach of human rights.
Besides the obvious (Tiger Woods gets better ratings), why aren’t national and international media on this?
