The attention paid Uganda hides a larger problem

78 countries criminalize same-sex sex. Five of those put people to death for their sexual orientation. Those five are Iran, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen plus twelve northern states in Nigeria and the southern parts of Somalia. President Obama has not resolved our foreign policy hypocrisy in putting pressure on Uganda while turning a blind eye to Saudi Arabia. Apparently, right and wrong differ with the oil supply. Uganda is about to become even less civilized with help from some American Christianist crackpots     Scott Lively, Caleb Lee Brundidge and Don Schmierer who visited Kampala in 2009.
