February 24, 2014 The Observer has published a controversial article defending the sovereign right of the Ugandan Parliament to pass legislation curbing gay propaganda and of Ugandan President Museveni to ratify it.
It calls on Museveni to resist Obamas pressure and asserts that the homosexualism has reached an extent that we, Ugandans, perceive as alien to our culture and ethos as a people.
Charlotte Ntulumme who teaches journalism and communication at Makerere University argues that the homosexual movement is taking the world by carefully crafted strategy to mobilise nations to support the gay agenda.
According to American conservative organisations, it was set in the late 1980s, in a book, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s, published in 1989 by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen. The authors laid out a six-point plan to transform the beliefs of ordinary Americans with regard to homosexual behaviour over a decade.
The points include portraying gays as victims, not as aggressive challengers, making the anti-gay movement look bad and getting funds for the gay propaganda from corporate America. The book calls on gay rights groups to adopt professional public relations techniques to convey their message. Apparently, the strategy is working. That is why opposition to any attempt to subject homosexuality to the law is packaged as an affront and a danger to the gay community, oppression of a minority and violation of human rights, freedom and justice.
The author exposes as a fraud use of scientific research to prove that one can be born homosexual and points that no matter how rational ones reasoning may be, dissent on this subject is homophobia.
As American author Alex McFarland states in an essay, Debunking 5 Common Arguments for Homosexuality (adapted from his new book, 10 Issues that Divide Christians), It matters not on what grounds ones disagreement with homosexuality is based: A person may disagree with the homosexual agenda for moral, religious, philosophical, sociological, academic, or medical reasons; it doesnt matter. According to most currently holding seats of cultural leadership, any and all disagreement is rooted in homophobia.
This is why President Museveni should be lauded for his bold stance in announcing that he will sign the Anti-Homosexuality Bill into law, proclaims Mrs. Ntulumme.
The bill has raised a furore not unexpectedly from various quarters of the world. The Obama government has warned that enacting the odious legislation would complicate [Americas] valued relationship with Uganda.
The Washington Post, in its February 11 editorial called for a strong response to anti-gay legislation in Nigeria [and Uganda] from the West. The paper suggested that the US and Britain, should be aggressively using their leverage to protect the vulnerable gay community
A more shocking reaction came from the leadership of the Anglican Church, urging leaders in Africa and, particularly, the presidents of Nigeria and Uganda, to criticise new laws criminalising homosexuality. They said victimisation or diminishment of human beings is anathema to the Church of England.
This is all hogwash, says Charlotte Ntulumme. Ugandas motto is For God and My Country and in our national anthem, we petition God to uphold our nation. Every religious denomination in Uganda has failed to find a single scripture in their holy books that condones homosexuality. All agree that the act is abominable, detestable, repugnant and offends God in whose hands we lay our future. The bishops of Canterbury and York should, therefore, tell us how we are supposed to reconcile these two opposite positions.
As the gay PR machine gets busy, Uganda and her President must snub the lies and withstand the sweeping tide of the gay domino effect, concludes Charlotte Ntulumme.
Thank you Uganda.
And thank you Scott Lively for adding your expertise in consulting with them.
Ironic that, under Obama, America now takes a moral backseat to... Uganda.
The president in Washington has taken us low, and will no doubt take us even lower before he’s run his destructive course.
According to Leftist Groupthink, no matter how rational ones reasoning may be, dissent on any subject that deviates from its dogma is anathema.
Al Sharpton needs to go over there and chase those rednecks (who are obviously in control in Uganda) out.[/heavy sarcasm]
It does not need to be criminalized. But certainly does not need to be celebrated and preferred, or publicized even as it is a “private” act.
Nothing is "anti-gay" except in the minds of homosexual militants in and out of the media!
Normal society (normal sex) is not "anti" anything.
It merely describes perverse sexual practices as what they are, perverse to humanity.
Evil beings have "perverted normal relations between a man and a woman; men lusting after each other and women the same."
We used to call this "sodomy" after the cities Sodom along with Gommorrah, that God destroyed for just the same perverted practices.
Today, many normal Americans feel afraid of being "judged by men" for naming this perverted use of our bodies as what it is, perverted.
It's not just those sad people caught up in these perverted practices who will again be judged by God but also those who endorse their behavior or even those who refuse to stand up against this perversion.
I completely agree with your post. And the thing is, we don’t even have to get into faith: basic reproductive biology says that sex between two beings who can never, under any circumstances, naturally conceive and bear offspring, is by definition unnatural. And the straw man argument that “You would prevent infertile hetero couples from marrying!” intentionally misses the point that NO two men, nor ANY two women, can naturally conceive and bear.
Frustrating, but we cannot stop speaking the truth in love: I don’t hate homosexuals - it is precisely because I love them as God’s creations that I refuse to stand idly by the side of the road to hell and cheer them on.
This is actually a well written piece of journalism.. from South Sudan no less! See how Nigeria proudly acknowledges that GOD upholds their constitution? No talk here of the rights given by our Creator. No, that’s discriminatory!
I understand when those who are "lost" and are involved in homosexuality, don't know Jesus and His saving grace for them, I am to love them and point out John 3:16.
However, when I am confronted by so-called believers, who either are engaging in homosexuality or just as bad, seem unable to distinguish between "loving the sinner (after all, we all are sinners) yet hating the sin," and want to condone the sin, I am to admonish them, condemn their behavior and statements, pointing out scriptural commands that they are also complicit in the sin of homosexuality and will be judged the same!
God doesn't say to believers that it's OK to "accept and condone these and other sexual sins, if they are family members and/or close friends."
Would we do the same with family members who committed murder, robbery, stealing, wife/child/parent beaters, assault etc.?
I certainly hope not but we, as a society seem all to ready to move in that direction since we've purged the public domain of the sins of "condemnation and intolerance."
The answer to your question was succinctly put by A.W. Tozer:
“Reducing the whole matter to individual terms, we arrive at some vital and highly personal conclusions. In the moral conflict now raging around us whoever is on Gods side is on the winning side and can not lose; whoever is on the other side is on the losing side and can not win. Here there is no chance, no gamble. There is freedom to choose which side we shall be on but no freedom to negotiate the results of the choice once it is made. By the mercy of God we may repent a wrong choice and alter the consequences by making a new and right choice. Beyond that we can not go.” - A.W. Tozer, The Sovereignty of God
The Christian enablers want to negotiate on others’ behalf the results of open and notorious sin.
