Ugandans should not embrace homosexuality

Monday, 15th September, 2008

Isaac Eyalama

The New Vision of August 18, quoted President Yoweri Museveni to have saluted the Archbishop of Uganda, the Rev. Henry Luke Orombi, and other African religious leaders for resisting homosexuality, a decadent culture being passed on by the Western nations.

We have always been asked why we concern ourselves with homosexual issues or same-sex marriages when they do not affect us. Why not just live and let live? Some people ask
We oppose legalisation of same-sex marriages or the promotion of homosexuality because, as examples from around the world show, homosexual activists are not content to just ‘live and let live.’

They are seeking to make it illegal for anyone to teach that homosexuality is not natural or that it is not good for anyone’s health since studies show medical risks associated with homosexual lifestyle. Neither do they want anybody to teach that it is morally wrong.

Homosexual activists are seeking to force churches to stop teaching their longstanding beliefs regarding homosexuality. They are trying to make it illegal or to be considered unethical for therapists to treat unwanted same-sex attraction because everytime someone is successfully treated, it destroys their claim that homosexual behaviour is genetic and inevitable. Worse still, they want to recruit our children though sex education programs.

In essence, they want to mainstream homosexuality throughout the world through laws, polices, harassment and intimidation. They want to prevent anyone saying anything negative about their sexual activities.

We must fight because the future of our families, our faith and many of our freedoms are at stake.

What happens in one country can affect many other countries as legal precedence is established and homosexual activists become emboldened in their demands.

We cannot sit on the sidelines; we must all engage in this battle now.

All Ugandans and Africans should join the President and religious leaders in this cause and support the various initiatives to preserve and protect marriage and religious freedom and to stop the homosexual agenda from changing our continent.

Well,

if it helps in anyway, now I have the intellectual reasons and logic for why people hate me. At least for why some Ugandans hate me.

If I sit down with Eyalama and start pointing out where he is plain wrong, do you think he will listen to me?

I do not think so. Hate is a pure, gut reaction. It does not need the reasons for doing so. Like love, hate gets reasons after the fact. Unlike love, hate is more likely to get the reasons.

Can you imagine an advocate like this defending you in the courts of law?

god forbid. And god help you.

Homosexual agenda??? I want in on this agenda. Sounds quite stimulating.

How do I get it? Did I miss the memo?

;)

"...seeking to make it illegal for anyone to teach that homosexuality is not natural or that it is not good for anyone’s health..."

Wow. Breathtaking in its simple stupidity, isn't it. And this one:

...they want to recruit our children though sex education programs..."

Who's this "they"? The education ministry in Uganda? Teachers? Or is he seriously suggesting that some sort of gay mafia runs the Ugandan education system?

The guy's a simple-minded idiot. Unfortunately, a lot of even simpler-minded idiots are probably reading his rubbish and thinking it's real...

Princess said...

Well, his is the first that displays some sort of logic.
A point worth noting.

Princess said...

Flawed logic though.
Especially that crack about a militant gay body recruiting school children...

gayuganda said...

the logic of logic is a perception. May differ person to person.

Leonardo Ricardo said...

This sounds like something "picked up" from Virtue Online (or one of the other lunatic extemist religious sites)...firstly, the "logic" they use has all been disproven...point, by, point...yet, they harrang with the fear/hate-mongering...it's simply a case that these egodriven/oppurtunists have discovered how to make a shame/name for themselves...something almost everyone, except the victims of this trashing, can get behind...really, it's no wonder we've kept in the closet forever...mixing it up with some of these nutbags in a world filled with frustrated/terrofied religious twits who don't know heaven from hell or up from down is a WASTE OF TIME (too bad they are so harmful to our health or we'd ignore them completely and live in quietly happy with them attempting to bump and grind their fears away on the backs of someone else). Idiots. Deadly idiots.

When I was a kid I once asked my father why some poor white folk hated negroes so much when they were both poor. (that word was PC in those days!). He said, "It seems that human beings always need to have someone lower than they are, someone they can look down on and despise."

What wisdom!

DeTamble said...

That's right! Screw all the homosexuals...and after we done that can we go to Pancake Parlour?

"Ugandans should not embrace homosexuality"
Eyalama, thank you for urging people not to embrace this "epidemic" that is threatening to bombard our country, we must fight tooth and nail to protect the future of our kids!!

We must engage our minds and come up with policies,laws etc, nothing goes by us, we should work as a team!!Homosexuality ZEE!

GUG, am sure you are an amazing person. reading your blog i find that you must really be intelligent coz some of the arguments you put forward to defend your views are extremely articulate.

my query is whether there occurs that one moment where you realsie that for every right you claim, someone must lose theirs? i guess its the law of the universe. and it works both ways, ii guess. for every civil liberty the conformists and conservatives claim, your ilk lose the chance of/for fair treatment.
question: projected 30yrs from today, [and am aware that alternative lifestyle shave survived some very harsh conditions *read inquisition,crusades,Rome,the Vatican, Dark ages,] is there a chance hat ugandan society will accept the alternative as part of the society? i mean like free men?

Hi Spartakuss,

thanks for the accolade, which of course immediately was followed by 'the' question.

I will answer your question with another question.

Imagine you were a slave in America before the abolition. Would you have given up because, well, even today, black americans seem to be like a second rate citizenry?

Or, imagine you were a woman in the days of the sufferagates, the women who campaigned for the right to vote, would you have given up because, even by 2008 you would not have had an American president who was a woman?

I didnt understand your point of how gaining my rights would be followed by loss of rights by others. That, am afraid, does not seem too logical to me.
