'Mother Jones' keeps dusting for American fingerprints on Uganda's shocking anti-gay law

by Jeremy Hooper

Good on Mother Jones for keeping this drumbeat alive. Worth a full read:

In late February, when Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed the nation's harsh new anti-gay bill into law, he claimed the measure had been "provoked by arrogant and careless western groups that are fond of coming into our schools and recruiting young children into homosexuality." What he failed to mention is that the legislation—which makes homosexuality a crime punishable by life in prison in some cases—was itself largely due to Western interlopers, chief among them a radical American pastor named Scott Lively.
