The Honest Scrap award is “bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog’s content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.”
I graciously accept and thank you ¨Top¨ (as we call him in the New World) and all of my other new and ¨brilliant¨ friends in Mother Africa!
As a recipient of the ¨Honest Scrap¨ award, I have been called upon, read required, to post 10 TRUE things about myself (I´ll try and list some less flattering aspects of my personality as you all are being exposed to some of my online dramadriven charms daily).
·One· I stole a small fold-out paper pumpkin at Woolworths when I was a child (I gave it back to them after I got busted on the scene, the police, nor my parents, were not called in, there had been no previous record or personal understanding of my thieving).
·Two· Since retirement, three years ago, I don´t feel like going to the gym everyday and I started eating bread (hence I´ve gained weight, I was never fat before so I guess I have to go back to the gym everyday and give up the bread, corn tortillas and the pasta and the rice)...I got tired of trying so hard to look good (the beauty contest is over but the facials and massages remain the same).
·Three· I love See´s Candy (from California) and could probably eat a whole l pound box (milk chocolate por favor) at one sitting. I´ve not tried, I show restraint. I´m a recovering alcoholic who has been on the mend for 30+ years with no drinkies (I was previously unaware I was miswired but a sugar rush feels so good).
·Four· Green, all shades, is my favorite color (and I especially like Green when used to color U.S. $$$ Dollars and also when more abundantly available in Nature).
·Five· I love Dogs (especially Dulce Serena Gonzalez my Cocker Spaniel and Fido the Old English Sheep Dog), Tropical Birds (Valentina and Valentino), Rabbits (Manchito y Pinta), Turtles and various human beings of assorted descriptions.
·Six· Rarely am I afraid (but I try not to be reckless and stupid either) but I don´t like rats (human or other), snakes (human or other) or poisoness spiders (human or other).
·Seven· I HATE injustice. I LOVE JUSTICE and have been known to ¨stick my nose in where it doesn´t belong¨ to promote *it*, demand *it*, be denied *it* and/or fight for *it* (anyway I can)
·Eight· I´m attracted to Men my same age (until I got old)
·Nine· I love to cook (all kinds of food but I don´t know anything about African cuisine except what I´m reading at Gay Kenyans blog).
·Ten· I´m Episcopalian/Anglican and Archbishop Desmond Tutu is my favorite Bishop and cool religious person in the WHOLE WIDE World (well, Padre Mickey and Fr. Jake are right up there too along with Dr. Christian Troll, Bishop Jon Bruno/Los Angeles and Chane/Washington).
So now that you have seen the true measure of my innermost/innocent character *issues* I will follow the tradition and bestow this award to:
HOW TO STOP THE BULLYING? Stop the instigating of difference, exclusion and abominating at Church and beyond by religious fundamentalists of all stripes who demean fellow Christians and others!
Bishops Akinola/Nigeria and Orombi/Uganda initiate anti-LGBT ¨witch hunts¨ at home and abroad.
Anglican Archbishop Orombi of Uganda and Archbishop Akinola of Nigeria, author of ¨The Hooligan Children of Gay People¨click HERE. YOU are amongst religious extremist FUNDAMENTALISTS who initiate fear and hate against LGBT Americans and others. YOU, Bishop Henri Orombi of Uganda and Peter Akinola of Nigeria are dangerous to OUR FAMILIES and OUR physical, emotional and SPIRITUAL HEALTH and overall well-being when you come to the United States and preach words of EXCLUSION of LGBT Christians and others at ALL levels of Churchlife! The California Supreme Court has ordered Orombi and Akinola and anti-lgbt ¨poaching¨ accomplices off TEC properties in California. So has New York, Missouri and Colorado. Virginia and Georgia will soon follow.
Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, Primate, The Episcopal Church/Anglican Communion.
The iniciating of a anti-LGBT fear and hate campaign is currently underway in Uganda at all levels of society. It was initiated by Orombi, Ssempa, Buturo, Langa and their other ¨pogrom¨ allies...STOP soliciting American ¨religious partners¨ for the exclusion and initiating of hate/exclusion in The United States too:
Bishop Orombi´s ECCLESIASTICAL PROTECTION PLAN:
¨The Rev. Erich Kasirye/Uganda has moved up to bigger and better ministry "opportunities" and is offering ´ecclesiastical protection´ to U.S. Parishes by way of the Diocese of Namirembe, Uganda and Bishop Samuel Ssekkadde...meanwhile, the ever-pious, sometimes-present and always unpleasant Archbishop Orombi is sturring up some potential new ¨holy business¨ by suggesting to Episcopalians and other people that the ´poisonous efforts of the revisionist forces´ at The Episcopal Church are harmful to Souls.
STOP instigating lies, FEAR AND HATE at The Anglican Communion and beyond and calling it ¨orthodox¨ Christian beliving! You demean Christianity with your vileness directed against fellow human beings.
STOP THE PREACHING OF FEAR AND HATE NOW:
STOP ignoring crimes of hate in murder rampant Jamaica. STOP initiating ¨witch hunts¨ in Uganda. STOP persecuting our families in Nigeria. STOP hanging LGBT citizens in Iran. STOP shooting LGBT citizen in Iraq! STOP driving our children to SUICIDE with your anti-LGBT slander preached/mouthed-off and mongered to children and adults in THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO STOP THE DEMEANING and BULLYING of LGBT CHRISTIANS and other religious people? Are you responsible for the harm you cause/preach? Mr. BOB DUNCAN, JACK IKER, JOHN SCHOFIELD, GREG VENABLES and PSYUDO-RELIGIOUS RIGHTEOUS ACCOMPLICES why do you FEAR and HATE LGBT children and LGBT adults, our families, our loved ones and our friends? What are your intentions for correcting the abuse that you have initiated against LGBT Christians and others everywhere? You have instigated much harm against YOUR fellow human beings as you preach your selfproclaimed purity codes...it is YOU that defile nature and torment other human beings in the name of a God who doesn´t need your defense--God requests that YOU obey Gods Commandments!
STOP INSTIGATING LIES, FEAR AND HATE AT THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION and calling it ¨orthodox¨ beliving! Face your own character defects/sin! You demean Christianity with your vileness directed against fellow human beings. STOP IT NOW! STOP IGNORING HATE CRIMES in MURDEROUS JAMAICA, STOP initiating ¨witch hunts¨ IN UGANDA, STOP persecuting our families IN NIGERIA, STOP hanging LGBT citizens IN IRAN, STOP shooting LGBT citizen IN IRAQ!
Are YOU accountable for YOUR actions and ignorant words when slandering or acting-out against LGBT Christian and others? Are you accountable for the lies you spread against OUR LGBT brothers, sisters, children, extended family members, friends and coworkers?
Are you an accessory to CRIMES OF HATE or SUICIDE? Are you a vociferous ¨Senate Republican¨ in Minnesota? Are you secret serial killer-at-large with a serpents tongue spewing GAYHATE? Do you justify your fear and hatemongering, demonizing of Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender people with selective Scriptural excuses or simply for grovelling/pandering wrongminded political reasons?

STOP CHEATING, CLERGY TELL HETEROSEXUAL COUPLES IN UGANDA
¨Cheating¨is a larger problem in Uganda for Public Morality and Ethics Minister Mr. Nsaba-Buturo than waging HIS costly anti-LGBT Conference and organizing a ongoing hatecampaign. Nsaba-Buturo has initiated a ¨Witch Hunt¨ seeking out everyday LGBT innocent citizens at all levels of Ugandan life. However, working toward putting a STOP to Human Sacrafices, Rampant Corruption at Public Institutuions, Prostitution and Domestic Violence, doesn´t seem to be a priority. Secretary Buturo apparently doesn´t know the difference between ´morals, ethics´ and ´human rights´.

“ That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation; go and learn. ” — Talmud...
REAL HERO/REAL LIFE: Bishop John Shelby Spong
“I was simply interpreting a rising consciousness,” he said. “Whether it was race or women or homosexual people, the issue was always the same: fighting against anything that dehumanizes a child of God on the basis of an external characteristic.” Bishop John Shelby Spong (click on his photo)
IT GETS BETTER--Archbishop Desmond Tutu supports LGBT full acceptance and inclusion too!
¨Churches say that the expression of love in a heterosexual monogamous relationship includes the physical, the touching, embracing, kissing, the genital act - the totality of our love makes each of us grow to become increasingly godlike and compassionate. If this is so for the heterosexual, what earthly reason have we to say that it is not the case with the homosexual?¨ Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu
