Is Lou Engle partially responsible for David Kato’s death?

Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato was killed in his home Wednesday. If you’re curious, he was bludgeoned and beaten to death. With a hammer.

Kato’s death comes as the Ugandan parliament considers a long-lingering bill that would criminalize gay-rights advocacy and add the death penalty as possible punishment for gay people in certain cases. Uganda is not a safe place for the LGBT community. Simply being gay is illegal. Politicians are becoming increasingly comfortable making public statements like, “Homosexuals can forget about human rights.” A newspaper recently published a list of prominent gay Ugandans — including Kato — and called for them to be hanged.
