US Secretary of State speaks out on David Kato murder. The Archbishop of Canterbury ... not so much.

Here's what Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had to say in her statement about the murder of Ugandan human rights activist David Kato:
This crime is a reminder of the heroic generosity of the people who advocate for and defend human rights on behalf of the rest of us -- and the sacrifices they make. And as we reflect on his life, it is also an occasion to reaffirm that human rights apply to everyone, no exceptions, and that the human rights of LGBT individuals cannot be separated from the human rights of all persons.

Here's what the Archbishop of Canterbury has had to say so far:

That's right. NOTHING.

Stay tuned.
