President Obama issued a statement on Thursday condemning the killing of Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato.

In his statement, Obama said:

"David showed tremendous courage in speaking out against hate. LGBT rights are not special rights; they are human rights.

My Administration will continue to strongly support human rights and assistance work on behalf of LGBT persons abroad. We do this because we recognize the threat faced by leaders like David Kato, and we share their commitment to advancing freedom, fairness, and equality for all."

David was an advocate for freedom and human rights and we hope that his efforts will continue to bring awareness to the LGBT community.

    Just goes to show you how screwed up Uganda is. Uganda is a place that know one has rights or peace and is a complete hell hole. Gay, Straight, women have nothing in regards to rights. Religious nuts spoil everything!!!

    David Kato's memory needs to be kept alive! A shame kids today think a basketball player is a hero. True men like David Kato are the REAL heros. May his message and memory live on!
