Evangelical Christians helped foster and support Uganda’s barbaric anti-gay regime, but now that people are criticizing them, their fee-fees are all hurt:
“Naturally, I don’t want anyone killed but I don’t feel I had anything to do with that,” said Mr. Schmierer, who added that in Uganda he had focused on parenting skills. He also said that he had been a target of threats himself, recently receiving more than 600 hate mails related to his visit.
“I spoke to help people,” he said, “and I’m getting bludgeoned from one end to the other.” [emphasis added]
I guess I would feel worse for Mr. Schmierer if the quoted article wasn’t about the bludgeoning murder of a gay rights activist in Uganda. To say nothing of the bill currently being considered by the Ugandan Parliament to use the death penalty for homosexuality, which Mr. Schmierer helped to create.
For the record, hate crimes against all Protestant groups in the United States in 2009? 40
Hate crimes against homosexuals in the United States in 2009? 1,390
