GOP Senator Sam Brownback’s Roommate Lou Engle Supports Eliminationist Antigay Bill
by brucewilson, 5-4-10
Last Sunday May 2nd, TheCall Founder Engle took the stage at a prayer rally at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda’s capital, and, according to a New York Times story, praised the “courage” and “righteousness” of Ugandan leaders and politicians backing the Anti Homosexuality Bill before Uganda’s Parliament. In its original form that bill would allow execution of HIV positive Ugandans and create an Orwellian antigay police state in which citizens would be required to report suspected homosexual activity or face up to three years in prison.
Why should Americans care about Lou Engle and or human rights in Africa ? Beyond altruistic moral considerations, Lou Engle is a leader in a rising sector of Christianity that’s beginning to reshape right-wing politics in America. And, Lou Engle claims he was US GOP Senator Sam Brownback’s roomate for seven months, as I discovered in video footage which I posted last year.
