This week, the Ugandan parliament passed an anti-gay bill that punishes certain acts of homosexuality with life in prison. Dr. Kapya Kaoma, an Episcopal priest from Zambia, believes that those responsible for the bill are “U.S. conservatives.” He singles out two evangelicals named Scott Lively and Lou Angle. (Update: He probably means Lou Engle.)

On the one hand, anti-gay conservatives are fringe. On the other hand, they are so powerful that two obscure anti-gay evangelicals have the entire Ugandan legislature in the palms of their hands!
