It should follow, right, that if one can be “cured” of being gay that one can be cured of being black, no? If so, please, please, please, Jesus, Yaweh, Zeus or whomever one deems almighty (Madonna, Oprah): make Caleb Brundidge not black.

Why is BUNA trying to disown this man and mandating that all staff be shorn of their dreadlocks? Because Caleb is the front line for the hateful homophobes peddling their warped “psychology” that one can un-learn being gay to the diabolic forces behind the bill to seek out/punish/persecute/murder people for being gay in Uganda. Caleb spoke at an “ex-gay” conference in Uganda on behalf of the International Healing Foundation and helped lay the foundations for Uganda’s anti-homosexuality bill.

The bill requires people to tattle on people they think might be gay or face jail time. Nooo, that’s not a recipe for spitefulness! The bill also offers life imprisonment for anyone caught having gay sex. Does this include straight people doing anal?

The white religious hypocrites who’ve been peddling this mess to different African nations are now all, like, “Oh, wait! We didn’t mean for you to KILL anyone who we decide is unclean and sinful. We just meant you should pray for those we falsely and erroneously accuse of diddling children. Erm…amen!” Surely, they don’t need folks like Caleb coonin’ and being their minstrelsy frontman?

BUNA also has a visceral reaction to the name “Caleb” thanks to Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion’s brilliant, evil character of the same name on Buffy. Hey! If crazy fundies make basic-ass claims that one can pray to some invisible force in the sky not to be gay, BUNA can make similarly basic-ass links between bad TV characters and bad emissaries of homophobia in true life.

There’s a protest rally at the Ugandan High Commission on Thursday, 10 December from 12-2pm in London. Now if only that opportunist, racist and suppressor of academic freedom Peter Tatchell weren’t scheduled to speak. With friends like him, who needs enemies? BUNA will write their MP instead.
