Christian leaders of America are excited about the prospect that Uganda is close to passing its "kill the gays" bill. The infamous bill is on the parliamentary schedule, cleared committee, ready for debate and said to be poised for a vote any day now. The speaker of the Ugandan Parliament has described it as "a Christmas gift to the Ugandan people."
Above, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins praises Ugandan president's "leadership," calling it an worthy "modern example."
Perkins is a frequent guest on CNN, MSNBC and other news outlets to speak to the Christian perspective on issues. Perkins also boasted of having authored passages in the Republican Party platform of concern to LGBT American citizens. Can we look forward to a "Kill the Gays" plank in the 2016 GOP platform?
Tony Perkins will be on many future cable news chat shows...chances of him having to defend these positions.
