The anti gay campaign is being fueled by failed evangelists from Western countries whose dogmatic ideas can no longer stand the test of time in those western countries. They are now targeting Africa where they reap from the poor through donations to their Ministries and at the same time inject venom in the minds of the populace. There is nothing wrong for NGOs to map out how to win support for the LGBTI community. Kudos to the Uganda LGBTI community for standing firm even in the face of continued persecution. This is like the civil rights movement, the movement against apartheid and the movement for the emancipation of women. These movements can NEVER be wished away by retrogressive Uganda politicians, fanatical and fundamentalist evangelists or any other person. the fire has been lit and it will not be extinguished. This is a human rights issue!
