Uganda’s Easter Message Calls For Genocide

Clergy praise Museveni on gay law and call for resilience…
Several churches in eastern Uganda praised President Museveni in their Easter sermons for assenting to the anti-gays law in February.

In Tororo District, Bishop Emmanuel Obbo, the Archbishop of Tororo Archdiocese, urged every citizen who supported the anti-homosexuality law to lay down greed, corruption and “put them to death and let generosity rise up within us and flow out in abundance.” He said “In Christ, we have victory over dysfunctional relationships, bad habits, painful experiences, sexual temptation and devastating circumstances.”

Archbishop of Canterbury irresponsibly blames the atrocities of Boko Haram on same-sex Marriage

Comment: It appears that the Archbishop was being disingenuous.

Yemisi Ilesanmi: The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, speaking on an LBC phone-in program suggested that African Christians will be killed if the Church of England accepts gay marriage. According to the Freethinker, he claimed he had stood by a mass grave in Nigeria of 330 Christians who had been massacred by neighbours who had justified the atrocity by saying: “If we leave a Christian community here we will all be made to become homosexual and so we will kill all the Christians.”

He was also quoted in the Guardian as saying:

I have stood by gravesides in Africa of a group of Christians who had been attacked because of something that had happened in America. We have to listen to that. We have to be aware of the fact. If the Church of England celebrated gay marriages the impact of that on Christians far from here, in South Sudan, Pakistan, Nigeria and other places would be absolutely catastrophic. Everything we say here goes round the world.

The Archbishop of Canterbury’s assertion that Christians in Africa are being massacred because of growing acceptance of gay unions in the West is indeed a load of bullshit and irresponsible lies. The Archbishop seems to be talking from his ass; however that wouldn’t be much of a concern to me but for the fact that as usual, when those religious leaders spew their nonsense in public, it always has a negative impact on those of us that don’t share their delusions.
