"Through their extensive communications networks in Africa, social welfare projects, Bible schools and educational materials, US religious conservatives warn of the dangers of homosexuals, and present themselves as the true representatives of US evangelicalism,"
Kaoma, an ANGLICAN priest from director of Political Research Associates - a Massachusetts-based progressive think-tank - wrote in his report Globalising the Culture Wars: US Conservatives, African Churches and Homophobia. HERE
Uganda update: Anti-Homosexuality Bill on tomorrow’s agenda
"Unless the world moves fast, we should expect a lot of killings of gays, not by state sanction but through mob violence. This will continue unless the international community can start talking about gays and lesbians having human rights that need to be protected and defended."

¨...I am in total shock. Museveni seems to have completely lost it, and is well on his way to being the oppressive dictator that he said he would never become. The military and police are shooting live bullets at peaceful protestors, beating and using pepper spray on Besigye, his main opposition, and refusing to allow anybody to speak out against his increasingly corrupt and violent regime...¨ read it all, HERE

|Dr. Rowan Williams, ¨First Amongst Equals¨ at The ANGLICAN Communion|
Tuesday 10th May 2011
The Archbishop of Canterbury is very concerned at the news that the proposed ‘Anti-Homosexuality Bill’ is once again under consideration by the Ugandan Parliament. Dr Williams wishes to reiterate his views, first expressed in December 2009:
"Overall, the proposed legislation is of shocking severity and I can't see how it could be supported by any Anglican who is committed to what the Communion has said in recent decades. Apart from invoking the death penalty, it makes pastoral care impossible - it seeks to turn pastors into informers." HERE
