I am told that to the east of
, there is no rain. Sun, in abundance. But, in Kampala , the days, the mornings dawn grey. Kampala
Not the dull grey of depression-, it is just a variant of the beauty of the day. Later, the sun will be out, and it will be hot. And bright, and clear.
Yesterday was a busy day. Not in that I accomplished much, but in that I was happy to do what I could.
There was one sour note to it. Before I went to bed, I got the chance to throw my voice again at the waves. As gayuganda, of course.
BBC. Don’t remember the programe. Was on with Richard Cohen, the prophet that Stephen Langa represents in
Richard Cohen is the founder of International Healing Ministries. They heal away the gay…! He is the one who got the invitation from Stephen Langa to come to
. And, he passed it on to his minister, Caleb Bundr… Uganda
And, it is his books that have been used, and are still being used in
for the anti-gay crusade. Uganda
Oh, I am not kidding you. Stephen Langa holds Richard Cohen as a shining example of how homosexuality can be healed. His books are the bible of the cure. They are selling like hot cake at Langa’s anti-homosexuality seminars and crusades. I am not kidding you.
Biggest problem. Richard Cohen is a fraud.
Simply put, he is no scientist. He is a very big fraud. And, he has been discredited multiple times in his own country, the
. But, in US , he is a prophet. The Prophet. Uganda
On the BBC, he wanted to heal me.
I, errrr. I exploded. Don’t think I was coherent, or made much sense. Don’t think I drove home the points that I wanted to. Don’t think I connected. There was too little time, I was too angry, too disgusted that this guy was offering me a nivarna that I knew to be as false as the witches coven that Ssempa believes is at the bottom of
His are the words, the ideals, the prophesies which my countrymen have seized upon to ‘wipe homosexuality out of

Hey, if you don’t believe me, check out the video of his show down on the Rachel Maddow Show on MSBC in the
. He is a fraud, plain and simple. Check those videos. They are two, and they are instructive. One, two. US
It was a few minutes when I was frothing at the mouth…!
Later, the kind lady presenter told me it was great. Of course she was being kind. [Shake of the head], why do people believe that their feelings about my sexuality transcend my feelings about my sexuality, above my life? Why do they insist on changing me, even at the threat of death or imprisonment?
Point is, I have been through the hell they offer as heaven. Been there. Done that. I have the scars to prove it.
Different cultures? Maybe they don’t understand me. Maybe they don’t understand the livid, vivid pain that they cause me?
I am not sure.
All I know is that I heard one of the prophets of the projected
free of homosexuality. And, I saw red at the arrogance that I imagined in him. But then, I might be mistaken. Uganda
Spent a restive night. Woken up to a fresh, crisp, grey day. And I feel good.
Hope the day is good to you.
