Report from Pink News today that actor from CSI:NY Gary Sinise was going to attend a 'anti-gay' Catholic summit put on by the Legatus organization has now backed out on a Facebook post today.
Sinise has not said specifically what his reasons for backing out but we think at WOGP for obvious reasons that its to do with Catholic Timothy Cardinal Dolan from New York, plus Sinise does suggest that he does not want to be associated with people with controversy in his Facebook announcement.

For me, faith has been a catalyst for my mission to honor the men and women who serve in our nation’s military. When I accepted the invitation to speak at the Legatus conference about Veterans issues and share my story, I was unaware of the controversy surrounding some of the participants, and their views on personal matters. I don’t want my mission—which is designed to be unifying—to be disrupted by these, or any controversies, and therefore have decided to withdraw.
An anti-gay Ugandan politician is set to become the next head of the United Nations General Assembly, causing outrage among rights groups.
Sam Kutesa serves as Ugandan Foreign Minister under President Museveni, who recently introduced a strict anti-gay law in the country, with heavy punishments for offenders.
Kutesa, who previously claimed that the majority of Africans “abhor” homosexuality, will become President of the General Assembly next month without a single vote cast, having been selected by the African Union in a traditionally unchallenged appointment.
The annually rotated position is “elected by acclamation”, with incumbent John William Ashe selected last year by the UN’s Latin American and Caribbean Group.
In his new role, which he will begin on June 11, Kutesa will chair all meetings of the UN’s general assembly, and play host to world leaders. Full story here
