real-life grimness

The news had a report tonight on Uganda, and the "Anti-Homosexuality" bill there.  If it passes, "repeat offenders" could get the death penalty.  EKP posted on this, and so did Lisabea.  It's horrible when people stir up violence and oppression in the name of religion, though that's happened countless times in history.  I think a lot of American people feel obligated to at least give lip service to "family values," but draw the line at actually killing someone.  There are still far too many hate crime murders, especially of transgendered people.  I don't understand why more people don't draw the connection between hate speech and resulting actions.  I wonder if this will lead to greater politicization of the young generation of GLBT people in America.  Not that some aren't already politicized, but more may become so.
