Obama mourns gay activist's murder
Politico44 ^ | 01/27/11 | POLITICO STAFF

Posted on 01/27/2011 3:45:22 PM PST by ColdOne

President Obama mourned the death on Thursday of David Kato, a gay rights activist who was murdered in Uganda:

“I am deeply saddened to learn of the murder of David Kato. In Uganda, David showed tremendous courage in speaking out against hate. He was a powerful advocate for fairness and freedom. The United States mourns his murder, and we recommit ourselves to David’s work.

“At home and around the world, LGBT persons continue to be subjected to unconscionable bullying, discrimination, and hate. In the weeks preceding David Kato’s murder in Uganda, five members of the LGBT community in Honduras were also murdered. It is essential that the Governments of Uganda and Honduras investigate these killings and hold the perpetrators accountable.

He mourns a Ugandan gay acticvist, but not a Border Patrol agent, and former Marine and Cop who was killed by Mexican cartel gunman last month?

Dear Bambi,

How about a shout-out to the world about this 19 yr old girl stoned to death by the taliban?

We wouldn’t want to think your moral outrage is...selective

When will he publically express his mourning for the three gay men from his old church who were murdered?

Oh yeah, we have this kind of crime in America all the time, too. Why, the gays in San Fran are fearful for their very lives ....

How much in order is Uganda anyways, I would believe, unless someone said otherwise, that it’s pretty much a nation in disarray, in which gay rights would be the least of its’ problems.

The second point is, does our president even know this guy at all? If not, then he shouldn’t be so much more concerned about him as the bigger picture of how stable Uganda is, or about how many people bite the dust from reckless, lawless crossing over our borders.

>> Obama: The United States mourns his murder, and we recommit ourselves to David’s work.

What about the work of abortionist, Kermit Gosnell? Do you, Obama, mourn for those he murdered?

When asked about human rights’ abuses in China during Hu’s visit, Obama could only respond “China has a different form of government than we do”. So apparently, it’s okay for some governments to abuse its citizens for some reasons, and not for others. It would be nice if he could be pinned down on when it’s okay and when it’s not.

The value of a human life is above his paygrade. A gay political activist however is right up his back alley.

Have you heard much about Uganda lately?

It’s because Uganda is making great strides. They were a center of the AIDS African crisis, so much so that they reached out to Christians.

The Churches and Christians have been leading the battle against AIDS with prayer and unashamed Christianity. They use the ABC program - Abstain, Be Faithful, Use Condoms. The homosexuals are furious.

AIDs has dropped drastically. No other country in Africa has seen this sort of drop. This has put the country in the crosshairs of the radical left. They are fervent in trying to explain away the sudden change in people’s health by any way other than Christian cultural change.

Naturally Obama has come out about this, it is a shoutout to the radical progressives that he will not let a Christian anti-life culture stand.

Hmmm. He's "deeply saddened" by the death of this African homosexual. He was "deeply saddened" by the death of Sargent Shriver.

But he apparently was not "deeply saddened" by the death of Judge John Roll or any of the others who died when Congresswoman Giffords was shot, at least so far as I can find by searching GoogleNews. The Governor was "deeply saddened." Loughner's parents were "deeply saddened."

But not Obama. He's "deeply saddened" by the death of some African queer.

Let me guess. The Ugandans were listening to Rush Limbaugh on satellite radio or streaming his broadcasts over the internet, right? And that’s why they were provoked to do this. If they’re not saying this yet, they will be...

He wasn't murdered because he was gay, he was just collateral damage to the fact that every black-run nation in the world is a hell-hole of corruption and violence.

And now we are a black-run nation.

That was my thought also. Remember the ‘shout out’ before any mention of the massacre at Ft Hood? This guy is a real piece of work. Sickening.

Just like Taco Bill Clinton he mourns the advocates of Sodom but is silent when our own Border agents get offed by druggies and border jumpers.

and what I see suggests the vast majority of such bullying, discrimination, and hate comes from their jilted lovers or
“friends” —gay on gay violence.Obama believes in fairy tales.

I'm surprised he doesn't come out against cramped back seats in cars.
Isn't that where he courted Larry Sinclair?

From what I’ve heard, it was the man’s gay lover who killed him.

This is not a hate crime, but a gay-on-gay crime. Or perhaps a simple robbery-gone-wrong ...

You’re welcome. When searching on the internet for a “pro Uganda anti-homosexuality” site, you have to wade through several pages of pro sodomite sites before you find the truth.

Tis a sign of the times my FRiend.
