The "Kill the Gays" Bill is not DEAD, it may still Pass

I thought, hoped it was over, but it's not.

The infamous Kill the Gays bill lives and may soon pass.
The member of the Ugandan Parliament behind a controversial "anti-gay" bill that would call for stiff penalties against homosexuality -- including life imprisonment and the death penalty -- says that the bill will become law "soon."

"We are very confident," David Bahati told CNN, "because this is a piece of legislation that is needed in this country to protect the traditional family here in Africa, and also protect the future of our children."
Governments that have donated aid to Uganda and human rights groups applied massive pressure since the bill was proposed a year ago, and most believed that the bill had been since shelved.
Not so, says Bahati, adding, "Every single day of my life now I am still pushing that it passes."

Ugh, I hate that David Bahati! Also here's another slam. Giles Muhame, an editor of Rolling Stone, talks about how homosexuality is a virus and just plain wrong.
