THE Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, His Grace Henry Luke Orombi, is angered by reports that US presidential hopeful Barack Obama will tolerate gay rights just as racial civil rights.
Orombi, currently in Israel, attending the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) and pilgrimage to the holy land said “moral racial civil rights” are not comparable to “immoral homosexuality.” Orombi’s remarks follow recent statements by Obama’s wife, Michelle, who said her husband would fight for gay rights just as he fought to help working-class families overcome poverty.
In a statement by his Media Adviser to GAFCON, David Sseppuuya, the archbishop urged Obama, who he described as a fellow African, not to disappoint the continent.
“It is distressing that Barack Obama a fellow African would promote racial civil rights as morally equivalent to immoral civil behaviour. We are Africans and know the difference between moral behaviour and responsibility as opposed to civil rights being compared to homosexuality. Will Barack Obama represent our interests in this matter?” Orombi asked.
Any suprises here? Orombi would rather all gay Africans pay the price for their sexuality according to the law of the country. Life in prison. Or as his colleague the Mufti says, Get an Island on Lake Victoria, and maroon them there. They will die out.
What nice 'Christian' attitudes! Christ would be suprised!
Orombi claims Obama an African. Big deal, so have I. But I wonder how some of these homophobes would take it to know how closely related they are to this homosexual. Oh well, maybe they just keep deluding themselves.
