Ugandan Author of “Kill the Gays Bill” Attending Prayer Breakfast

Who isn’t surprised? Via Box Turtle Bulletin, the report from Uganda’s largest national newspaper that David Bahati, the sponsor of the “Anti-Homosexuality Bill,” will be in the US in February.

In February, David Bahati, the mover of the controversial Anti-Homosexuality Bill is expected to attend a prayer breakfast in the American capital of DC.

Mr Bahati, according to reports, may speak at the event where President Barack Obama – a gays-tolerant liberal president, is also expected to attend. On Friday, Mr Bahati said he would attend. The event is organised by The Fellowship- a conservative Christian organisation, which has deep political connections and counts several high-ranking conservative politicians in its membership.

“I intend to attend the prayer breakfast,” said Mr Bahati – himself a part organiser of the Ugandan equivalent of the national prayer breakfast. This week, citing international pressure, President Yoweri Museveni advised his party’s National Executive Committee, his cabinet and the NRM parliamentary caucus to “go slow” on the Bill.

The National Prayer Breakfast (which doesn’t have an official website?) is notoriously tied in with the dealings of the Family, a secretive group of Christians in high political power.  Take the time to read the entire article at the Daily Monitor, and be sure to follow the entire coverage of the Kill the Gays Bill over at BTB.
