From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Gay activists begin Lively legal action in Uganda
Thursday 15 March 2012

The suit was filed in federal court in Springfield against minister Scott Lively under a statute that Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMU) says allows non-citizens to file US court actions for violations of international law.
The suit asks for a judgement that his alleged incitement is illegal and violates international law and human rights.
Senior SMU activist Frank Mugisha said the group was targeting Mr Lively for “helping spread propaganda and violence” against Uganda’s gay community, which endures widespread discrimination and legal restrictions. “We hope that he will be held accountable for what he did in Uganda,” said Mr Mugisha. “We want to send out a clear message to him and to others.”
Mr Lively of Abiding Truth Ministries is one of a handful of US pastors whom Ugandan gay activists accuse of having helped draft the original version of the African country’s draconian anti-homosexuality Bill.
The Bill called for the death penalty for Aids sufferers convicted of having had sex with a member of the same sex. It has since been revamped to replace the death penalty with life imprisonment as a maximum sentence.
About 70 protesters marched about half a mile from the US District Court in Springfield to Mr Lively’s business, the Holy Grounds Coffee House.
They dressed in black and beat drums, carrying signs with the names of persecuted Ugandans and coffins to symbolise the scores of gay people who have been killed by bigots in the developing country.

They come from Hollywood, yes, but also from Wall Street and Washington and the corporate world; there are Republicans as well as Democrats; and perhaps most strikingly, longtime gay organizers said, there has been an influx of contributions from straight donors unlike anything they have seen before”: here.
