John Oliver Looks At Uganda's Insane Anti-Gay Laws, Meets Uganda's Sanest Person (Video)
To celebrate Gay Pride Month, John Oliver recapped some of the steps forward toward marriage equality, and notes that at this rate, the only suspense remaining is in guessing "which state is going to be last. Who could it possibly be Mississippi? We don't know Mississippi! It could be anyone Mississippi." Anyway, well done, USA! Unfortunately, as the market for rancid homophobia here has declined, American fundagelicals found a willing export market in Uganda, which welcomed their help in designing a terrible law that provides life in prison for homosexuality, and where attacks on gays have increased dramatically since the law passed. Says Oliver, 'People from the Dark Ages could build a time machine, travel to 2014 Uganda, and step outside and say, 'Oh, shit -- it didn't work.'"
