"The world has gone crazy.

People are turning away from the scriptures. They should turn back, they should abandon what they are doing. You cannot start admiring a fellow man.[...]

It is ungodly."

--The pastor at David Kato's funeral, the gay activist in Uganda who was recently murdered after being targeted by a magazine for being gay

right and proper that this pastor was forcibly driven from the pulpit by the attendees at David Cato's funeral. The attendees were righteously outraged by these negative and deliberately inflammatory statements, made at the funeral of a true Ugandan hero. How would this pastor feel if he were attacked in his home and threatened with being beaten to death with a hammer to the head as was Cato? The so called pastor should be deeply ashamed and run out of town, the way the so called newspaper is calling for the murder of gays.
Let us hope this can become a 'teachable' moment for tolerance of differing sexualities. Not a platform for further condemnation and denigration of fellow human beings.
We will not be silenced.
