LGBT California looks to Desmond Tutu: homophobia equal to apartheid

Desmond Tutu will be with us, on 03.05.2009, when the Prop 8 gay marriage ban, is challenged in California's State Supreme Court, in San Francisco. In 2004, Tutu compared homophobia to apartheid:

South Africa's January 2006 Civil Unions Bill reinforced its December 2005 court decision legalizing same sex unions, and stirred Africans to rethink sex all over the continent.

U.S. allies Rwandan President Paul Kagame, and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, however, backed up by Reverend Rick Warren, still insist that homosexuals "do not exist" in their "purpose-driven" nations, and, that, therefore, homosexuals will not be included in their state health care systems, including their U.S.-funded HIV/AIDS prevention and care systems, which Congress funded for $15+ U.S. billions, from 2003-2008, then, refunded for $50 billion, in July 2008, but with even more "abstinence-only-till-heterosexual-married-monogamy" restrictions.
