Quickie Link: Is the US Government Financing Anti Gay Groups in Africa?
(USA) - The IGLHRC has revealed that it has uncovered evidence that the U.S. government has funded groups in Uganda that actively promote discrimination against Gay people. The primary instigator of the backlash was Pastor Martin Ssempa, leader of the Makerere University Community Church and spokesman for the Interfaith Family Culture Coalition Against Homosexuality in Uganda. IGLHRC has evidence of grants made by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to the Makerere University Community Church. With support from conservative organizations such as Family Watch International in the United States, Mr. Ssempa has launched attacks on Gay people.
