I love getting hyper-conservative screeds that make little sense. It's something of a hobby for me.
On a recent post entitled "Uganda's 'Kill The Gays' Bill Goes XXX??", in which I took Pastor Martin Ssempa (one of the authors of Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Bill) to task for showing fetish porn and having strong ties to American Evangelicals, we had a drive-by commenter who took issue with me going after a man that wants to put gays to death.
stop deceiving the public.
Nothing happened to Pastor Ssempa in fact everything went on smoothly.
Otherwise, Hudson, to remind a bit, this law caters for Ugandans alone,
and I wonder why someone like you who is not a Ugandan should get
OK, I know, you might say u care about the nation but for your own
information and as the Uganda's motto stands "FOR GOD AND MA COUNTRY"
you should know that Uganda is for God and not mere human beings OK.
And God's will has to be done in our country.
Turn to God Hudson.
Where to start...
Oh Betty. I just can't resist engaging a little bit.
First, let's talk about deceiving the public. Multiple news agencies reported Ssempa's little presentation in favor of the "Kill the Gays" bill- complete with scat fetish porn and tales of pedophiles coming after children. And people that left the presentation early were interviewed as they left, so I think it's pretty clear that Ssempa overplayed his hand and things did not go "smoothly" for him.
As for deception, I think Ssempa, and folks like him, are the ones actively deceiving the public. They spread fear and lies about gay men- showing fringe fetishes (which I could easily find with heterosexual people with a quick google search too) and bogus "statistics" meant to demonize an entire group of people. Doesn't like a very Pastor-like thing to do...
As for why I and so many other people around the world are so concerned with this bill, it's simple. We care about our fellow man. We care about human rights. We care about what would surely be a mass extermination of gay people in Uganda.
It has nothing to do with national sovereignty or God, it has to do with basic human rights and protection. Sure we could turn a blind eye, but that makes us all culpable for the atrocities that occur around us. It may apply to "Uganda alone", but that doesn't make it right or excusable.
Now let's have a chat about "God's Will" and "turning to God". I have a hard time, no matter what your definition of "God" is, thinking that it would be his/her will to kill others. A certain verse comes to mind:
Let He Without Sin Cast the First Stone.
I'm guessing you and Pastor Ssempa must lead pretty sin-less lives with all the stones you're throwing around. The fact that you are coming to the blog to argue for killing people seems to belie that assumption a bit...
And if your God wants you to kill, imprison, intimidate, and demonize a swath of people, then I think I'll take a pass.
But thanks for stopping by, Betty.
