Dr. Lively Comments on Uganda Murder -- Updated
perspective: pro-family
from the 'Uganda' topic

Source: In House
A homosexual activist was murdered in Uganda and the international media has rushed to declare it a hate crime while the local police have attributed the motive to robbery.
[ send this article to a friend ]

Ugandan homosexual activist David Cato was recently beaten to death with a hammer in his home. It was a terrible crime deserving of our strongest condemnation. I extend my sincere condolences to his family and friends.

My first comment on this matter was to caution the media not to rush to judge this as a hate crime since at that time no one had been arrested for the crime so the motive was purely a matter of conjecture. CNN was reporting that money and clothing had been stolen from his house, which suggested a run-of-the-mill criminal intent. I also suggested the possibility that he was killed by a “gay” lover, as was the case with another homosexual activist two weeks ago in New York. Carlos Castro was castrated with a corkscrew by his boyfriend and bled to death in his hotel room. See

I reminded the media that some homosexual activists and journalists rushed to judge another Ugandan gay murder as a hate crime in June 2010, only to sheepishly retract that claim when the murder turned out to be the work of pagan witch doctors involved in a bizarre occult ritual. See and

It has since been reported by the New York Times that the local police do not believe this was a hate crime but a robbery. This has not deterred the Times, and the rest of the "mainstream" media from using this crime to advance the "gay" narrative that all disapproval of homosexuality leads invariably to violence and murder of homosexuals. This is propaganda, not journalism and it is a false premise. Society has the right and duty to discourage harmful conduct and lifestyles and for its citizens to to do so in a responsible fashion can never fairly be construed as incitement to hatred or violence.

The Ugandan newspaper which "outed" the Ugandan homosexual activists under a banner saying "Hang Them," clearly WAS an incitement to violence and I join the rest of the civilized world in condemning it. The Ugandan court was right in declaring it illegal

The investigation of this case is not completed, and it might yet be shown that Cato death was a hate crime. If so, the Rolling Stone newspaper may bear some responsibility for its actual incitement to violence.

For liberals to reach further however to claim that responsible criticism of homosexuality, such as my 2009 seminars in Kampala, constitutes incitement to violence is unfair and opportunistic. It is not wrong to speak against homosexuality any more than it is wrong to speak against other behavioral disorders such as alcoholism and bulemia, or other sexual sins such as adultery and polygamy. Anyone who were to take such criticism as permission to hurt another person is simply crazy and you can't silence all legitimate criticism of a social problem because some crazy person might misconstue it.
