Saw this at SGL's Universe, and I was not amused. I know Ssempa, and Orombi in Uganda preach the same kind of gospel, but wow! Kind of hits one in the face how much freedom to hate a person can claim in the name of religion.
A few names immediately spring to mind. Osama bin Laden being the most notorious one.
Just wonder whether this is where my poor country is headed.
Here is the article.
Australian bumper sticker threatens gays with death
"Gay Rights? Under God's law the only rights gays have is the right to die." Lev 20:13
Did I hear you ask where Ssempa preaches the same gospel? Well, I will spring the quote.
"Our previous experience showed us that bringing homosexuals into campaigns against HIV only gives them a chance to propagate their illegal and unnatural acts."
In my book, thinking that I should get HIV in the name of your morality is not very far from thinking I should die, in the name of your morality. Sick Christians.
A prayer for those who hate me in the name of religion; May their gods help them. I as a homosexual have proven resilient over the years.
Is that reaction, err, too hate filled?
Bitter, defiant, in your face. And of course the all out challenge to Christians.
Reminds me of what I used to be. Bitter, angry, and lashing out at any chance I got. At Christians, and Christianity.
Anger has its purposes. Ingrained as homophobia can be, we learn to hate ourselves for what we are. The anger helps us to seize control of the moral upper ground. Even when it is not based on accurate facts. Helps to kind of flush out the venom.
But anger is not something to use so liberally. It corrodes and corrupts one's being.
Actually, those poor Christians, Ssempa, and the guy who believes my only right is to be stoned because I am gay, well, they are to be pitied.
They are in a house full of treasures. And their eyes are so closed to it that they can genuinely see none of the good things of love that that house has.
Poor Ssempa. And Orombi, and Nsaba Buturo. And of course, the sheep that follow them; Kimbowa, and all the others. Poor christians.
