UGANDA´S NATIONAL SPIRITUAL SICKNESS: Using the Bible and God to justify hateful anti-LGBTI prejudices and fear-mongering

President Museveni and wife Janet are received by hundreds of supporters at Kololo yesterday
Actions have outcomes and consequences it seems.  Even in a country as freewheeling-corrupt and politically/spiritually damaged by greedy grandstanding religious leaders as Uganda there will be moments of knowing truth from lies, right from wrong.  Truth will emerge.  There will be moments of clarity for those Ugandans and their international friends, who insist on  truth, honesty, peace and justice for all women and men everywhere...and for those of us who are ¨angry about racism, sexism, homophobia¨ and are ¨particularly angry with ´Christians´ who use our faith to oppose caring for the least among us and who bully, lie, and hate in the name of Christ¨  wherever that lack of ¨caring¨ occurs HERE  there will be awareness eventually even if it´s truly ¨one day at a time.¨

Anglican LGBTI ¨excluding/excommunicating¨  Gafconing schismatic, Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi/Uganda, 

Pentecostal Pastor Martin Ssempa
For years the ¨religious zealots,¨ who are mainly Protestant, Anglican, Catholic, Muslim have been terrorizing their very own LGBTI members, brothers and sisters and fellow citizens in Uganda...all in the name of a religious fear and hate driven campaign for LGBTI cleansing from society and a better-than-others  fictional righteousness that is degenerative even to the most disciplined puritanish perfectionist soul. 

Uganda is a haven for vertical corruption in Government, Civil War, Childwitchburning, Sexual Slavery all under the tightest possible control of a ¨Democratic¨ and elected Military man/Anglican President who is running for re-election in 2011 (after changing the Constitution to lawfully allow another term in office). 

In the past years we´ve seen and noted that ¨righteous¨ President Museveni and his ¨extra-righteous¨ wife Janet often make outlandish and emotionally charged, hateful public, religiouslike remarks regarding ¨Gay¨ people:

¨In God's word, homosexuality attracts a curse, but now people are engaging in it and saying they are created that way. It is for money The devil is stoking fires to destroy our nation and those taking advantage are doing so because our people are poor," HERE

The Official FACE of the Ugandan National Spiritual Sickness
The Ugandan National prattle/slander goes on and on and also spews forth from the mouths of religious leaders like Anglican Archbishop Henry Orombi and Pentecostal Pastor Martin Ssempa. Meanwhile many Ugandans and people of the World wonder why/how:

 ¨how is it possible for anyone who calls him/herself a disciple of Christ, a disciple of the One Who commanded us to love and not judge others, to call him/herself a "Christian" and yet affirm prejudice and discrimination that leads to the untold suffering of countless LGBT people?

The fact is that there are thugs who call themselves Christians, and are given tacit, if not explicit, permission to manifest that thuggery by all too many denominations and congregations, all the while falsely appealing to the Bible and to God to justify their hateful prejudices.¨ HERE

This week, in the United States, the very large Protestant Church ¨Canyon Ridge Christian¨ spokesperson Mitch Harris made the following announcement in regard to withdrawing major support for extremist Pastor Ssempa because of his toxic anti-LGBT antics/preaching/pogrom:

Canyon Ridge Christian Church began work in Uganda with the intent of helping address the HIV/AIDS pandemic that was wiping out generations of people in that country and other parts of Africa. Our partnership with Pastor Martin Ssempa began in response to this intent.

Because of the current controversy in Uganda over the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, and because of Pastor Ssempa’s involvement in the support of the bill, we have been in regular communication with him to clarify his positions and opinions. While we have come to understand that Pastor Ssempa advocates for an amended version of the Anti-Homosexuality bill that removes the death penalty and reduces other severe penalties, he is still supports passage of this bill.

We, however, do not support him in this effort. HERE

One can hope that Global South Anglican destructionist Henry Orombi will soon understand that no matter the ¨Western¨ backing from which he receives patronage ($$$) from schismatics, bigots and thieves he will too one day understand the core of visciousness and excluding he preaches in Uganda is unacceptable. HERE  Unacceptable to most civilized, educated, informed, or simply well-meaning and God loving human beings in Uganda and beyond.
