WASHINGTON D.C. — President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton voiced concern for the anti-gay Ugandan bill today.

During speeches made while attending the annual National Prayer breakfast, Obama and Clinton both mentioned the bill, which would make same-sex orientation a punishable crime there.

“We may disagree about gay marriage,” Obama said, “but surely we can agree that it is unconscionable to target gays and lesbians for who they are.”

Advocacy groups asked the President not to attend the breakfast, as one of its sponsors, The Fellowship Foundation, purportedly is pushing for the bill’s passage, according to the Associated Press.
