Reaching Out To Rick - #1

(It's a long reach, but perhaps this will extend the grasp...)

Could Rick and Hillary go to Africa and persuade Uganda to stop incarcerating gays for their gayness? Rick has left an impression with their Bishop Ssempa that this is ok. It is not.
"Warren’s allies have rolled back key elements of one of the continent’s most successful initiative, the so-called ABC program in Uganda. Stephen Lewis, the United Nations’ special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa, told the New York Times their activism is “resulting in great damage and undoubtedly will cause significant numbers of infections which should never have occurred.”
Rick Warren needs to tell them that God created all life. He needs to correct this.
"With safe sex advocates on the run, Warren and Ssempa trained their sights on another social evil. In August 2007, Ssempa led hundreds of his followers through the streets of Kampala to demand that the government mete out harsh punishments against gays. “Arrest all homos,” read placards. And: “A man cannot marry a man.” Ssempa continued his crusade online, publishing the names of Ugandan gay rights activists on a website he created, along with photos and home addresses. “Homosexual promoters,” he called them, suggesting they intended to seduce Uganda’s children into their lifestyle. Soon afterwards, two of President Yoweri Museveni’s top officials demanded the arrest of the gay activists named by Ssempa. Terrified, the activists immediately into hiding."
This is the world Inauguration Invoker Rick Warren has created for Hillary to deal with.

Can Hillary call Rick? It's warm and sunny there this month.

Thanks, people...
