The people of Gambia are so fortunate to president who shows them and the people of the world what a God fearing real leader is. We the people of the increasingly disgusting USA ought to find ways to send donations to this country. I know their leaders would distribute the funds honestly to their people. The USA has also threatened and withheld aid to destitute countries that will not accept USA abortion/birth control/genocide mandates.

Does Catholic Charities have a presence in Gambia and do they accept dedicated donations?

Well that makes no sense. If he’s going to...oh, wait, he said “GRass”...never mind.

It seems the arrogance of US liberals extends even beyond our borders, attempting to bring their twisted despotism to a completely foreign country by using threats. “Allow sodomy or you will starve”.

And excuse me but doesn’t Africa have a huge problem with HIV and AIDS? But this matters not to liberals. It’s THEIR agenda or the highway.

Can US leaders become any sicker. Clinton leads this effort. Come Nov, 90+% of the weirdos placed in office and responsible for such failures will be re-elected by a brain dead, entertainment-addicted population.

Our country is so young....but suppose, suppose homosexuality was mandated by our laws...because that is what has happened. The mandate comes as a "you must accept this....and teach it to your children as "a right way".

So sad...it should hasve been nipped.

“If you want us to be ungodly for you to give us aid, take your aid away, we will survive,” said Jammeh, in comments that were reported by the Daily Observer. “We will rather eat grass than accept this ungodly evil attitude that is anti-God, anti-human and anti-creation.”

Dear mr. zero: Stick it where the sun don't shine, since that seems to be your preference anyway! We'll get along fine without your perversions!

Lord knows we need more men like this standing up for what is right!

Romans 1:

19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Thanks IbJensen.
In the face of U.S. threats to cut off foreign aid, President Yahya Jammeh defended Gambian laws banning homosexual behavior in comments to the country's National Assembly last Friday. "If you want us to be ungodly for you to give us aid, take your aid away, we will survive... We will rather eat grass than accept this ungodly evil attitude that is anti-God, anti-human and anti-creation."

Jammeh is a Muslim (he converted from Christianity) with two wives. He vowed to make laws regarding homosexuality "stricter than those in Iran." He wants gays beheaded. Hardly a godly leader.

Gay rights aside, Foreign Aid has had a toxic effect on the recepient nations promoting corruption and indolence; so Gambia may dodge a bullet and derive real dividends simply by taking a moral stand in opposition to Obama.

The country’s stance against homosexual behavior has come under increased scrutiny after President Obama announced in December that the U.S. would look at how accepting a country was of homosexuality when considering foreign aid allocation.

Stuff like this makes me wonder how much longer God will continue to bless this nation.

As regards the acceptance of what is foul for political or monetary expedience I stand by my statement. It is always godly to maintain one’s righteous convictions even in the face of great personal risk. It is never godly to abandon God’s commands for the sake of personal political or financial gain.

It is always godly to maintain one’s righteous convictions even in the face of great personal risk.

The danger is believing your convictions are righteous because they are your convictions and believing that holding to them is godly when it may be nothing more than stubbornness and believing that the great personal risk into which it puts you is, in and of itself, evidence of their godliness and righteousness:

"There is a way that seemeth right to a man but the end thereof is death."

LUSAKA, April 27, 2012 “

Huh?
Lusaka is the capital of the ZAMBIA(formerly known as Northern Rhodesia), which is in southern Africa, not Gambia, which is a tiny country in West Africa. I think the author of the article is confusing the two countries. Their names may be separated by only one letter(Z or G), but they two countries are totally different.
Back on point, of course the Gambian president is right to tell 0bozo and his gay mafia vermin to go take a jump.

If the U.S. would simply restrict its attention to protecting the human right of homosexuals (as of all persons) to a degree of privacy, and not try to push the homosexual agenda, it might be persuasive. No, homosexuals should not be hung for acts done in private with other consenting adults. But, as to whether homosexuality is taught in the schools, banned from public displays, entitled to recognition as marriage, etc., this is not for the corrupt west to impose on the other countries of the world.

The United States foreign policy has been a disaster for decades.

Forcing South Africa to turn that nation over to an evil Communist regime was patently stupid and totally unfair. Joining the UN in banning DDT was another large mistake. The Gorebal Warming fiasco is an unbelievable lie that the current ‘leaders’ endorse.

There is so much more, but placing the sinful homosexuals on a pedestal to be a gaggle honored is simply the most wrong-headed attempt at ‘policy’ ever conceived by man.

What sane person would think that placing one’s penis up another’s anus is another of God’s Plans? These perverts wonder why AIDS and other assorted diseases is visited upon them? After all, they’re just in love with someone and since that someone hasn’t a vagina on him there are other orifices to explore.

Then there’s the practice of cleaning the partner’s dipstick thereby ingesting fecal matter as well as shoving one’s mouth up the other’s anus.

Does this make sense to anyone?

Checking out the history of serial killers we find the very large majority of these multiple murders are committed by committed homosexuals.

The best line of that whole article was the Gambian President's response to the usual UN "human rights" twaddle that was being peddled anew by Hillary Clinton in Geneva:

“We lost our traditional head scarf for a necktie, but we will not lose our humanity for the so-called human rights,” he said. “We will respect human rights where a human being behaves like a human being.”

This whole controversy raises an important point about so-called “human rights” in foreign countries that i would like to quickly address.

As some fellow Freepers know, I own a company called CaribbeanLifeClub.com that has as its sole purpose helping people find property and homes in Central America. It’s because of CLC that I am highly sensitive to what the so-called “human rights” industry is doing to countries that refuse to follow its perverse dictates.

Simply put, when you read about some “human rights” organization (including our own state department) giving a country a low “human rights” rating, here’s what you have to keep in mind: in almost every one of those situations, the top two criteria are “homosexuality rights” and “reproductive rights.”

In other words, if a country does not embrace (notice, I said “embrace,” not “tolerate”) homosexual behavior and abortion on demand, that country is condemned as a “human rights” hellhole where “gays” and women are routinely put to the whip.

So, the next time you hear that “human rights” are not protected in places like Honduras, Guatemala, Panama, or any other Central American haven (which they are now compared to Barack Obama’s America), just keep in mind: it’s all based on what we might call the Barney Frank and Sandra Fluke Indexes.

In short, all that matters to the “human rights” watchdogs is protecting perversion and predation.

The frightening part is that the Gambian president is probably more grounded in reality than ours.

Obama is truly a giant stinking fruit of the ‘reverse’ racist, communist, gay/sex-positive agenda, America hating, PC, affirmative action tree. A perfect brainwashed paragon of all they stand for.

There are always exceptions to 'we'...there were in Sodom and Gomorrah...

Second, our nation has been turned over to the sodomites because we FAILED to elect individuals who will stand up and acknowledge Him as the Creator.

I'm inclined to agree, although Romans doesn't specifically reference 'elections'. We should all acknowledge Him as Creator.

Did you protest to your school boards when prayers were forbidden in the classroom?

No...I was in school at the time; although I didn't understand why we no longer recited the Lord's Prayer anymore...nowadays; I make plenty of noise about schools, and I don't have children. Actual parents? Not so much.

No they are not, I for one would not want to live in a Muslim majority country. There are differences between Islam and a true faith in Jesus; I would rather live in a country where most are born-again Christians and do not accept homosexuality, but know the meaning of Grace, where we hope and pray that those who live in and tolerate this sin’s hearts will be changed by God!

Imagine them telling the Moslem nations to allow freedom of Religious expression or no more foreign aid.

We all know that will never happen.

But freedom to practice homosexuality and lesbianism and “transgenderism”, whatever that is, we will starve you out if you don’t allow it.

Too many FReepers think that screaming and yelling and cussing about what’s wrong with America of FR is somehow supposed to be effective at informing the legislators about their opinions.

When you get four or five people together, go down to your local mayor or state legislator’s office and speak as one voice, that’s when they listen to you. Why? Because they know that if you can gather a small group, you can assemble a large group.

Go to a city council meeting with a bunch of friends and have one person speak. Say, “I am speaking for - (turn around and everyone in your group stands up) - myself and my neighbors about this issue”.

Don’t be surprised if the city manager gives you a personal call when the next big issue is coming up, looking for your support.

Yelling on a forum is as effective as ******* into the wind.
