ENOUGH WITH THE SELF-SERVING HATE-MONGERS OF UGANDA: Ntagali enthroned as President Museveni hurrangs against homosexuality

The deadly and Orombi-face-saving, self serving, LGBT deprecating Anglican CLOWNS of Uganda (congratulate themselves) Former archbishop of the Church of Uganda Henry Orombi (L) hands over the pastoral staff to his successor Stanley Ntagali during his enthronement at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Namirembe in Kampala yesterday.

¨The Rt. Rev. Stanley Ntagali was yesterday enthroned as the eighth Archbishop of the province of the Church of Uganda, at a function where President Museveni urged leaders and the public to desist from promoting homosexuality.

Archbishop Ntagali, 57, was sworn-in and handed the Provincial staff at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Namirembe, taking over from retiring Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi, who has been at the helm of the Anglican Church in Uganda for nine years...¨   HERE

For many years now.  As long as this blog, Eruptions At The Foot Of The Volcano, has been covering the ugly antics of those who would harm others at church/beyond church in Uganda, we have not remained silent on the topic of the degeneratelike leadership. Leadership of the various religiouslike leaders and many public servants in Uganda and their ¨marginalizing/demeaning of LGBT Christians/others¨ accomplices/supporters from abroad. 

Here are a few unattractive and unfortunate real life Uganda recollections from our blog:

Bishop Orombi and the All Africa Anglican Bishops Conference: Anti-LGBTI Fear/hatemongers extraordinaire, Entebbe, Uganda.

Note:  Deposedfrom TEC  anti-Gay Bishop of the ¨continuing¨  renegade ACNA (not a member of the Anglican Communion), Bob Duncan, front right, gave the sermon at the enthronement of the Rt. Rev. Stanley Ntagali this past weekend.

The ¨fear meant to be instilled in the Ugandan Homosexual community after the death of David Kato (pictured above) is broken by God¨

Remember Anglican David Kato who was murdered because of fear and hate generated in public?

HONORING IN MEMORY -- DAVID KATO: ¨Bishop Senyonjo* spoke of David Kato as a selfless leader who served the gay community in Uganda to challenge discrimination and stigma for homosexuals.¨

¨On Wednesday 26 January 2011 David Kato, Ugandan gay man, activist, human rights defender, man of courage, the real McCoy – as they say, was beaten to death in his home near Kampala. He lived without trimmings, literally and metaphorically. David lived his life on the edge with no protection from the sickening homophobia unleashed by political and religious leaders in Uganda and their supporters in the US.¨   Sokari Ekine

¨The blood of David Kato is on their hands and on the hands of those politicians and religious leaders both in Uganda and in the US who have led the campaign of hate against LGBTIQ people: David Bahati, Red Pepper (Uganda’s tabloid newspaper); Martin Ssempa, Ugandan Minister of Ethics; Nsaba Buturu, Archbishop of Rwanda; Onesphore Rwaje; Archbishop Henry Orombi of Uganda; Bishops of the All African Bishops Conference; Prime Minister of Uganda Apolo Nsibambi; Rev Bernard Ntahoturi of Burundi; Archbishops Akinola and Nicholas Okoh of Nigeria; Peter Karamaga; the National Anti-Homosexual Task-force Uganda; Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni and his wife Janet Museveni; Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe; Pastor Mulinde of Trumpet Church Uganda; Lou Engle; Rick Warren; Scott Lively and Dan Schmierer of the ‘ex-gay’ group Exodus International; Jon Qwelane; Bishop Lawrence Chai of Free Apostolic Churches of Kenya; Sheikh Ali Hussein of Masjid Answar Sunna Mosque; the African Union’s African Commission on People and Human Rights who denied Coalition of African Lesbians observer status; and all those who voted at the UN General Assembly Human Rights Committee to delete the reference to killings due to sexual orientation condemning unjustified executions.¨ HERE

THE OBSESSION WITH SEX and ¨KILLING GAYS¨ IN UGANDA: “Young people, commit your sexual organs to the Lord...¨ Anglican Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi

"People should respect nature and the great creator who modelled man and woman. He wasn't blind and he knows why he created a man's parts and a woman's parts. Why should anyone try to undo that?" Henry Luke Orombi, HERE

Their lot, the ¨political and religious leaders¨ of Uganda is a dangerous lot and they not only oppress their LGBT population but actually strive to seek out LGBT citizens (and family and friends), humiliate them, outcast them, put them on trial, jail them and even KILL them if MP David Bahati gets his way.   It's doesn't seem to be enough that Anglican David Bahati (his spiritual counselor is Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi) has been pushing his ¨Kill the Gays¨ Bill in the parliament of Uganda since 2009 up to TODAY,  but he is joined by finacially supportive American ¨C¨ Street buddies, and many fundamentalist religious bigots on the North American Continent, Africa and Asia too! Ugandans are supplied with endless hatefilled support, money and selective scriptural propaganda against ¨Gay people¨ by non-expert, right wing, hate mongers such as Scott Lively, author of  The Pink Swastika,  holocaust revisionist  ´pastor´ Lively and other christianlike groupies smear Gay people daily and have been declared HATE GROUPS officially by the Southern Law Center.

As the public FEAR and HATE level is generated against LGBT citizens in Uganda it seems that little is done about the vertical corruption that  grossly infects GOVERNMENT and everyday society in Uganda.  Nothing is done about rampant alcoholism, sex slavery, child witchburning, vertical corruption and even out of control inflation!   Three term, some say tyrant/dictator, President Museveni, also Anglican (and everything else, as he accepts prayers/blessings from country witch doctors at election time for endorsements) seems to despise LGBT Citizens.  As a magic, and passionate, vote getting tool to earn the esteem, on the backs of others, he his fellow politico cohorts ignore the inhumane, poverty stricken public truth with instigating petty/professional insane actions and vile words against LGBT Ugandans. Meanwhile, real crime thrives in the Pearl of Africa.  

Often, superstitiously and selective scripturally blaming most everything on a never proven claim that ¨Ugandan children are being bought into homosexuality by Westerners¨  drives passion into deadly fear because leaders promote the idea that HOMOSEXUALITY is un-African.  All lies.  All meant to perpetuate fear, anger, reassure false pride and keep the gay threat alive so BIG MEN at church and in public life can plunder and do their despotic mischief.  HONORABLE and CAPABLE WISE MEN/WOMEN in public life, are few in Uganda, self proclaimed religious and righteous or not. Many are common thugs, thieves, grandstanders, opportunists and/or simply resentfilled, feardriven religious emotionally and spiritually ill puritans on the run from truth and the everyday reality as they play the  ´gain whatever you can game´ along with tainted politicians.¨   Leonardo Ricardo

The angry/strident and hateful face of Ugandas First Lady, Janet Museveni (she wants to be President after her husbands third term ends).

Malicious Janet Museveni, Member of Parliament and First Lady of Uganda

"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," she said. Mrs. Museveni advised the youth not only to listen to messages on how they can make money but also focus on spiritual growth. "You know that you will lose everything else when you lose your soul.¨

Retired Bishop Christopher Senyonjo, the head of the St. Paul Reconciliation and Equality Centre (SPREC).

* PLEASE NOTE: Retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Ssenyonjo was excommunicated by Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi and the Anglican House of Bishops/Uganda, his monthly pension denied (after 50 years of service to the Anglican Church as a priest and bishop) because he ministered to LGBT suicidal outcasts in Uganda in his retirement.  (he continues his mission to serve under daily threats of death)

Great blog posting. As usual you name it for what it is. I made my effort over on PRELUDIUM, but u the man.

thanks for all you do.

Leonard Clark said...

Thank you Mark for the kind words and the visit. I'm honored. (truth is, I often read your calm direct and very fair essasys at Preludium, like make me think, think, think...and then! Later! Well, you know the rest). As Josh Thomas would say ¨you go vaboom¨...and I do! Best to you and yours, Len

JCF said...

Did you see the comment (by a "Fr Will McQueen": I think he's ACNA) on this Episcopal Cafe/The Lead thread?


Yes, I echo Mark's thanks for your work, Len.

Leonard Clark said...

JCF, I think Will McQueen (no doubt a distant relative) has vanished...easy come, easy go! Thank you JCF for staying in the NOW (and staying)! Un gran abrazo, Leonardo

Dear Bonnie, IT's ME that needs to put my glasses on (especially in the middle of the night when I jumped up/woke up because some local fireworks went off -- Latin America is sometimes even more vibrant than one would wish. I just accidentally deleted your nice comment and compliment...damn, am I mad at myself. I turned the approval on for the commenting because I was starting to receive some very stupid comments/spamming and nonsense regarding TEC...suddenly, I've become a target for some of the bigots and thieves and what appears to be the renegade group (near you). So, only a little more time with the Comment Approval system then I'll go back to free posting of comments...I wish you and family a great Christmas into New Year...I think of you often and am so glad I know you (sometimes fs comes here too, that brings me gladness -- the two of you as friends). Love to you, Leonardo/Len

BONNIE - I retrieved your comment from my comment notifier -- I copied and will paste it below:

Hi Leonardo--Absent for awhile here BUT not due to interest but frustration of trying to figure out the weird sign-on code.

Echoing Fr. Mark's sentiment that "u the man."

Also the reason for the check-in, wishing you peace, love, joy, hope, and many blessing for you and all whom you love and pray for at Christmas and in the New Year.

And, here goes with magnifying glass at hand, deciphering code and hoping for the best.

OK. Try number 1 did not work. Trying again.

Sorry I screwed it up, but I wanted you to SEE it wasn't you that made the error, it was ME!

Un gran abrazo,
