David Kato - Uganda's first openly gay man - and his fellow activists work against the clock to defeat the legislation while combating vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one, not even the filmmakers, is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes the movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world.

    This is heartbreaking. That man did not deserve to die for being who he is.

    We may not agree on whether being homosexual is justified or not but certainly, killing is not an option. It's sad that David Kato had to die for his voice to be heard.

    Shame on your ignorance Uganda. Ready for lynching?

    Killing homosexuals is not apart of Christianity at ALL. Jesus Christ did not shed his blood for heterosexuals only. He knew some people would be gay and he died for them just the same. For all people to make their way to the Cross. To feel His love.

    At the start of this doc it says. That 95% of Ugandans are against homosexuality,, yet we know 10% of any human population is gay. For those who think it's not natural watch HOW TO CONFUSE A CREATIONIST: EVOLUTION HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE BIBLE

    Maybe people should have stopped trying to "Stop Kony" and focus on the atrocious Ugandan government that will kill people just because of who they are/
  • suvariboy 2013-06-14 19:43:14
    If you mean that it's disgusting to treat anyone the way that they treat gay people in Uganda then I agree, it is disgusting.
  • gabriel lifschitz 2013-06-07 18:56:15
    And the saddest thing is that the American Evangelicals are the reason this thing is happening.. They say homosexuality is a west thing, but really the kill the gays is a "west thing"
  • gabriel lifschitz 2013-06-07 18:49:55

  • thefakebest 2013-05-30 12:34:05
