The Family: Christian Fundamentalists Murderous Ugandan Agenda

The Family aka the fellowship, which attributes its successful seventy year anti human rights campaign to maintaining a secretive profile, is hosting Congressional representatives and other American leaders at the 'National Prayer Breakfast' to spread its vision of death for lesbian, gay and transgender people.

Listen to NPR 'Fresh Air' on WHYY The Secret Political Reach Of 'The Family'. I was horrified as to the insipid treachery of this shadow fundamentalist group and I am sure it will shock you also.

TWO Truths warns us that 'The Family' Is Directly Linked To Draconian Anti-Gay Death Bill in Uganda and it's time to lift this Vail of secrecy and reveal the atrocities the 'family' intends to unleash on you and your christian family.

All Americans regardless of religious affiliation must stand up and demand an end to the Families agenda. Those who do not are giving tacit support to murder of innocents in Uganda by paying the salaries Congressmen and Senators who expedite this merciless persecution and executions of gay, lesbian and transgender people.

This is happening today in Uganda. The family wishes the same for LGBT people in America tomorrow.

By Mary Frances Schjonberg, November 30, 2009

[Episcopal News Service] The pending Ugandan legislation that would imprison for life or execute people who violate that country's anti-homosexuality laws would be a "terrible violation of the human rights of an already persecuted minority," Episcopal Church House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson has said.

Anderson was responding to a Nov. 16 request that Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, Archbishop Henri Orombi of Uganda and she speak out against the legislation.
