    This surely is a dilemma for the President. Should he go or stay away from the event?


    Obama's 'Kill the Gays' dilemma - THE WEEK

    Quote:
    Every president since Eisenhower has attended D.C.'s annual National Prayer Meeting, sponsored by the politically powerful evangelical group, The Fellowship. President Obama may be the exception. David Bahati, the Ugandan legislator behind a controversial bill designed to imprison — or even execute — Ugandan homosexuals (known as the "Kill the Gays" bill) says he's been invited and will attend the event on Feb. 4. Will Obama share the stage with this universally condemned figure — or boycott the meeting?

    Quote:
    Bahati's only fighting for Ugandan values: David Bahati, says Cliff Kincaid at Right Side News, is not intimidated by Western "homosexual imperialist" attempts to distort his "pro-family legislation." Uganda is "85 percent Christian," and the popular bill is actually designed not to "kill homosexuals," but to restrict "dangerous homosexual practices, including pedophilia, child rape, and the deliberate spreading of the AIDS virus."

    Quote:
    We'll see if Bahati shows Feb. 4: It's great that Bob Hunter has disinvited "Bahati, the guy who can’t wait to begin killing gay people," says Jim Burroway at Box Turtle Bulletin. But nobody with recognized authority within the Fellowship has said anything about Bahati, let alone the Anti-Homosexuality Bill." Until they do, "I’m sticking with the only first-person account I’ve seen so far" — Bahati's. Your move, Obama.
