World Bank postpones Uganda loan over anti-gay law
Reuters ^ | 2/27/2014 | Anna Yukhananov

The World Bank on Thursday postponed a $90 million loan to Uganda's health system over a law that toughened punishment for gays, an unusual move for an institution that typically avoids wading into politics.

"We have postponed the project for further review to ensure that the development objectives would not be adversely affected by the enactment of this new law," World Bank spokesman David Theis said in an email.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed an anti-gay bill earlier this week that strengthens already strict laws against homosexuals by imposing a life sentence for certain violations and making it a crime to not report anyone who breaks the law.

The World Bank, a poverty-fighting institution based in Washington, usually refrains from getting involved in countries' internal politics or in issues such as gay rights to avoid antagonizing any of its 188 member countries.

The depth of depravity throughout the world in its support of sodomy is utterly amazing.

Satan truly rules this world (at least in human affairs) that’s why seeking Christ, and relying upon Him is so important.

Does the World Bank have any opinion on Muslim Countries and their stand on gays?

I guess it you want anything in this world you have to accept queers and queerdom as a part of life.

Life just for being gay is harsh. That said, Uganda’s basically going to go “We had this discussion last century, white boy. You don’t get to tell us how to run our country.”

So basically the World Bank will sacrifice peoples health and lives for the gay agenda.

Got to consider, however, that not even the Old Testament would convict without more than one witness, and there was also an annual expiation of sin. A line was drawn between private and notorious sin. That principle is being effaced here. Just saying.

The conservative side of modern Christendom is really big on condemnation, really small on leading people out of sin. It was not an accident that Exodus International (look them up) was not in favor of this move.

‘Support’ of sodomy - it is so much more, isn’t it? Forcing it down the world’s throats. Absolutely disgusting. Forcing our acceptance of perversion on the world, in exchange for money.

But no Islamic country has such a worry, right? Selective outrage at its finest.

I agree but I fear that leading people out of sin is becoming a criminal act.

One cannot be led out of the bondage of sin who doesn’t want to be led out of it. That’s why the gospel commission is a warning from God and a witness against the world.

Uganda’s “health system” may save more than the $90 mil by locking up queers and keeping them away from the general public.

This happens when bullying is no longer accepted. Yes, there was a time when you punched a faggot in the face and people would say he deserved it. The result kept them quiet and in their closets.

Looks like the beginnings of ‘Ye can neither buy nor sell lest you have the mark of the beast’.

Becoming hard to argue the last days are not right around the corner.

The World Bank is the United States. It doesn’t matter what they say. My opinion of homosexuals hasn’t been affected one bit by all this propaganda. It is still wrong!
