President of House of Deputies Anderson on Uganda

ENS is reporting that the President of the House of Deputies, Bonnie Anderson, has written a letter to the Consultation, concerning opposition to the proposed anti-gay legislation being considered by Uganda. Her letter has not yet been posted, as far as I know. Neither her site nor the Consultations' site as yet posts the actual letter and there is no link to it in the ENS article. So what we have is snippets culled by ENS.

Dr. Anderson does say this, in the letter as quoted in the ENS article, "I hope and believe that a vigorous statement will be forthcoming, and that I will be able to support this statement wholeheartedly."

Her statement is most welcome and I too hope that a "vigorous statement" will be made soon.

Stay tuned.

  1. Let's hope that not only Bonnie Anderson but a whole lot more come out on this issue very quickly. As I posted yesterday, LA County saw an 80% increas in hate crimes affecting LGBT and, 9 of those can be directly attributed to proposition 8 matters. there is at least a low correlation between support for these anti-gay laws and violence against the LGBT community and it must stop. The beginning is to have our leadership come out quickly and strenuously against these laws, in Uganda, in Nigeria, in the United States.

  2. Hmmmmm. Does she indicate from whom the 'vigorous statement' is supposed to come?

  3. The PB's statement, on the TEC site, is very vigorous indeed. Brava!
