White House condemns Uganda's anti-homosexuality bill

Finally someone in Washington grew a pair.

“The President strongly opposes efforts, such as the draft law pending in Uganda, that would criminalize homosexuality and move against the tide of history,” read the White House statement that came late Friday in response to an inquiry from The Advocate.

While I'm glad to see this, I do have to wonder why it took a request from the Advocate to get a statement. Still, better late than never, as they say.

This proposed law needs to be condemned by every government, both large and small. Uganda has to know that they will be ostracized from the world community if they pass this. It worked to change South Africa and it can work here.
