-Don Schmierer in response to the murder of Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato. Schmierer was one of the U.S. evangelicals who visited Uganda in 2009 in an attempt to “educate” the country about the evils of homosexuality. Soon after, Uganda proposed a bill that would allow the executions of gay people; the bill is still on the table.
Kato was a high-profile activist. He was beaten to death with a hammer on Wednesday.
