Rebecca Kadaga, the speaker of the Ugandan legislature, led a group of Ugandan pilgrims and politicians to the Vatican, where she was granted and audience with the Pope, who blessed her and dedicated a reading from the Bible to them. Strangely, it wasn’t Leviticus 18:22.
Pope Benedict XVI has given blessings to Uganda Parliament Speaker Rebecca Kadaga during a mass attended by thousands of pilgrims at the Vatican.
Kadaga who led a delegation of Ugandan legislators to the Vatican expressed delight at meeting the Pope and visiting St Peter’s Basilicca.
“I think this is a moment that cannot be repeated. We have been reading about him, hearing stories about St.Peter’s Basilica but now we are here physically.
“I think it is something that I will remember all my life. It’s a very great moment and I thank God for this opportunity,” she said minutes after meeting the Pope.
Praise the lord! And kill the gays!
