LifeSiteNews’ Orwellian Support of the Ugandan Anti-Gay Law

LifeSiteNews, one of the most deranged Christian right websites, has a blog post by Obianuju Ekeocha praising the new Ugandan law that punishes homosexuality by up to life in prison and even prescribes prison sentences for those who fail to report gay people to the authorities.

The courageous Ugandan MP’s have chosen to please God instead of men (or women!). And they have chosen to protect their citizens from the corrosive effects of moral decadence and unrestrained sexual lisence. They have voted their Christian values.

But unfortunately, the western leaders in their imperialistic rage, do not care to listen to the values, views or thoughts of the African people. In fact, Human Rights First , an American advocacy group, has already called on President Obama to press the Ugandan President Museveni not to sign the bill into law. Imperialistic rage in action!

And on a day like this when a strong statement is made in Africa, their predictable response is always to tag Africans as “primitive”, “hateful” and “homophobic” simply because we refuse to bow before the rainbow flag.

The colonial era is clearly behind us, and so our African leaders are free to decide how best to establish a civilisation of love and life where the African people can flourish.

And another irony meter bites the dust. The imposition of “Christian values” was just declared to be an anti-imperialist action. As if Uganda just spontaneously became Christian rather than having it imposed on them by colonial powers.

Indeed, these Ugandan MP’s have decidedly hoisted high the flags of virtue and values today even though they will surely come under unspeakable pressure in the days ahead. The “modern” world that we live in today is one of totalitarian commitment to the hegemonic homosexual agenda and in this hegemony, there is zero tolerance for anyone who believes in traditional moral values.

*headdesk* Yes, someone who is advocating the imprisonment of gay people is criticizing her opponents as “totalitarian.” You. Can’t. Make. This. Shit. Up.

    how best to establish a civilisation of love and life where the African people can flourish

    Yes, a civilisation of love and life where people are thrown in prision to flourish because they choose to have sex with the peole in life they love. George Orwell couldn’t have done any better.

    I’ve seen this kind of Orwellian language coming from wingnuts a lot lately. Throwing people you don’t like into prison is “freedom” while leaving people alone to live their own lives is “totaliarianism.”

    Weird.

    As can, of course, be seen in countless countries where homosexuals are locking conservative bigots up in prison for life.

    Wait, what?

    ..there is zero tolerance for anyone who believes in traditional moral values”.

    Yes this is why when those with so-called “traditional moral values” are discovered they will be prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced to lengthy prison terms whenever possible. Those protecting these deviants will be subject to prosecution as well.

    MPs are supposed to represent the people who voted for them. If God wants a voice in the Ugandan parliament then let him run for election.

    Yes!

    As when President Nasheed of the Maldives called on the US to change its energy policies or when Brazil pressed the US in negotiations on sugar subsidies or when the European Catholics engaged their governments to try to get them to force the US to halt the death penalty or at least limit its application.

    Citizens caring about how their own lives are affected – even if only by moral outrage they experience – by the actions of foreign governments! When will this mad rage end?
