But if any single African country has attracted American ire, it is Uganda. Is this because of a spate of anti-gay attacks? When a tiny college newspaper organized an egregious hate campaign last October against prominent gay activists, including Kato, a Ugandan court issued a permanent injunction against the publication. And David Kato’s death is among only a handful of documented instances in which homosexuals have been killed in Uganda in recent years, with police now claiming that Kato was murdered by an acquaintance for reasons unrelated to homophobia. Despite Rachel Maddow’s running commentary on Uganda””under the headline “Uganda Be Kidding Me!”””more Ugandans consider homosexual behavior morally acceptable or neutral””almost one in five””than people in any other major African country, including sexually tolerant South Africa, according to a 2010 Pew Forum survey.
