David Kato, the Dead Lovers, and the Burning Puppy
In Uganda, the homophobia the crazy Christianists ignited, claims the life of a gentle gay hero.
“David’s death is a result of the hatred planted in Uganda by U.S. evangelicals in 2009,” Val Kalende, the chairwoman of one of Uganda’s gay rights groups, said in a statement. “The Ugandan government and the so-called U.S. evangelicals must take responsibility for David’s blood.”
And follows him to his grave
The pastor presiding over the funeral of murdered gay rights activist David Kato went on an anti-homosexual rant Friday, adding insult to injury for the circle of activists hoping to honour and bury their friend.
Villagers then refused to bury the coffin, so Kato's friends carried it to the grave and buried him themselves.
In Afghanistan, the brutish Taliban Islamists stone a young couple to death, for the crime of being in love.
The stoning lasts two minutes. Hundreds of rocks - some larger than a man's fist - are thrown at her head and body. She tries to crawl out of the hole, but is beaten back by the stones. A boulder is then thrown at her head, her burka is soaked in blood, and she collapses inside the hole.
Then her lover, Khayyam, is brought to the crowd...The attack on him is even more ferocious. His body, lying face down, jerks as the rocks meet their target. He is heard to be crying, but is soon silent.
And in South Carolina, a woman kills a puppy for eating her Bible.
Miriam Fowler Smith, 65, told cops on Monday that she hung and burned her nephew's pit bull after the animal took a bite out of her bible.
She claimed God urged her to kill Diamond, a 1-year-old female dog, because the animal was a "devil dog" and would hurt neighborhood children
Oh boy. I'm so glad I'm an atheist.
Welcome to this world...
