January 27, 2011


I followed the situation in Nigeria and Uganda closely when researching my book on Gene Robinson; the African activists have been incredibly courageous for so many years, but to have David's life end this way is about as horrible and tragic as it gets -- and American Christian fundamentalists (including the ones who defected from the Episcopal Church) have fueled this fire by throwing in their lot with the conservative African bishops. I am sick about it.

Oh. I've hardly seen any news this week and hadn't heard this. All I could think, looking at his photo, was how much he resembled a Ugandan I know... How sickeningly, horribly sad.

Makes you wonder about whether our species is worth saving, sometimes.
