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 Davids work.
At home and around the world, LGBT persons continue to be subjected to unconscionable bullying, discrimination, and hate. In the weeks preceding David Katos 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.

anybody HE knew?
Does he ever mourn the Christian victims of say, attacks on churches?
OMG!! This is EMBARRASSING!! He IS GAY...our President IS gay!! This guy was in UGANDA for gosh sakes!
More emotion here than this POS Obummer could muster for the Ft Hood shooting. Swell.
Pep Rally Time!!
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?
Exactly. It is just awful.
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
Obama crapping on us again.
He never even mentioned the 6 Christian doctors gunned down in Afghanistan last fall
At home and around the world, LGBT persons continue to be subjected to unconscionable bullying, discrimination, and hate.
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 ....
Yes, or the Christian woman missionary who was killed at the Mexican border yesterday.. Does Obama mourn her?
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 Davids work.
What about the work of abortionist, Kermit Gosnell? Do you, Obama, mourn for those he murdered?
Nate Spencer...gay- murdered 2007.
Larry Bland....gay- member- Rev Wrights church-dead.
Donald Young....gay- member- Rev Wrights church-dead.
When, oh, when will the “Won” weep for them?
“The United States mourns his murder, and we recommit ourselves to Davids work.”
I don’t. There are more worthy people to mourn...
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.
