Ugandan Author of ‘Kill Gays’ Bill coming to DC for Nat’l Prayer Breakfast with Obama

Jim Burroway at Box Turtle Bulletin reported last night that David Bahati, the author of the “Kill Gays” bill is planning to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, sponsored by the Fellowship Foundation/The Family, on February 4th. President Obama is also expected to attend that breakfast.

If “The Family” wants Bahati at its event, that’s their choice. Bahati’s presence sends a message that his views are condoned by the event’s sponsors. If he’s there, Obama can’t attend. It’s that simple. Nor should any other member of Congress or Administration official.
