Uganda's Family Life Network calls for passage of Anti-Homosexuality Bill

In a sign that debate is heating up in Uganda over the Anti-Homosexuality BIll, the Family Life Network of Stephen Langa convened a press conference yesterday and initiated the “Pass the Bill Now” campaign (Press release).

Stephen Langa organized the conference in Kampala in 2009 which featured Scott Lively, Don Schmierer, and Caleb Brundidge.

    I could not open the press release, it is a .dox file

    It’s the usual rubbish, SGM: “homosexuals recruit children”, etc.. Even ‘Maazi NCO’ has stopped peddling that nonsense (he could never produce any credible evidence, you see) on this blog.

    I must admit that, from a ‘political’ perspective, I’m puzzled by this new ‘campaign’: if the Bill enjoys the parliamentary support that people like ‘Maazi NCO’ claims it does, I can’t see why it is necessary …

    I have always maintained that gay sex militants are sensitizing and inciting our impressionable youth to engage in sex crimes. My opinion on this matter has never wavered.

    The bill enjoys not only widespread parliamentary support, but also nationwide support. Every Ugandan citizen has right to express support or opposition to the Bahati Bill. However, those who are opposed to the bill must understand that their attempts to bring in foreign muscle to intimidate and veto the overwhelming opinion of the Ugandan people on this subject matter will fail.

  • Richard Willmer

    My question was: why is the campaign apparently deemed necessary by those who are undertaking it?

    (By the way, I’ve just heard that Langa & Co. may have got some foreign cash just recently – will say more on this if there is more to tell.)

    Naaaazi,

    Ugandans can do as they please, and they’re welcome to the curse their hatred will earn them. Just as it happened in Zimbabwe, the gays were the first to be persecuted by the government. Non Africans will be next. Eventually, they will come for you. No one here will cry for you when you’re executed or your children when they are left to starve.

    Gay propaganda as usual. Nice try Richard. Let me reiterate that there is no reason for any Ugandan to collect money to oppose a deviant behaviour that is already overwhelmingly opposed by most Ugandans. The ones who are receiving hot dollar cash from foreign gay sex activists are those spending heavily in fancy hotel conference rooms, screaming about their non-existent right to engage in abominable sex crimes and threatening to unleash their foreign attack dogs on the Ugandan people unless they accept gayism and even enact laws to protect such deviant behaviours. The Ugandan parliament continues to say “NO” to such threats…

    I will. Killing others is senseless and harms us all.

  • Richard Willmer

    Both sides are getting foreign cash – everyone knows that.

    The amount of foreign cash to the ‘human rights’ side has increased since Bahati’s proposed slaughter programme broke cover. This is hardly surprising when one thinks about it.

    (A general point: the apparent ‘fragility’ of the overall political and economic situation in UG is worrying, and I hope very much that things don’t descend into bloodshed. That would be tragic.)

    A number of prominent American white evangelicals have been using Uganda as a potential killing field for Gays for some years. Since few if any in the uSA media or elsewhere for that matter pay attention to the devious and well-funded actions of these American hypocrites the well-paid homophobes in Uganda may have their savage way.

  • Richard Willmer

    From the Monitor article:

    “We sound a serious warning that we will recall any MP who betrays our children, our people and our nation,” Mr Langa warned, promising that parents would be organised for recall of MPs who betray this cause.

    Does this mean that Langa and Co. are intending to threaten Ugandan MPs? If so, how interesting … and how typical!

    The plot thickens …

  • Maazi NCO

    The plot thickens …

    One reading your comments will think that Stephen Langa is trying to re-enact Guy Fawke’s Gun Powder Plot against the British Monarch rather than simply raising his concerns with parliament in a transparent way as expected of a law-abiding citizen of Uganda.

    A number of prominent American white evangelicals have been using Uganda as a potential killing field for Gays for some years. Since few if any in the uSA media or elsewhere for that matter pay attention to the devious and well-funded actions of these American hypocrites the well-paid homophobes in Uganda may have their savage way.

    Yet another silly gay propagandist statement. I am not an evangelical and I do not care about your American evangelical compatriots, but I am committed to ensuring that the sovereign Parliament of Uganda is not vetoed by euro-american gay lobbyists. I doubt any of my colleagues have any pathologial fear of sex deviants so the term “homophobia” is really a misnomer—-a downright silly word coined by gay sex propagandists. But I will gladly admit that most Ugandans share the conviction that gayism is an abominable sex crime that cannot be granted breathing space in Uganda.

  • Richard Willmer

    But what Langa is reported to have said does look like a threat. That does raise questions, I think.

  • Richard Willmer

    Anyway, the picture may well become rather clearer in the next 48 hours.

    Am a Ugandan gay male. I went through the press release of this gentleman and i found out that the reason he gave was based on hatred and his own perception on our community.

    He said they pay taxes, Am a business man here and i pay taxes too. Am a registered voter and i voted as well.

    My people survive on my efforts, including heterosexuals. Why does he think the law must protect the straight alone? The law must protect all citizen of this country because we are all stake holders

  • Richard Willmer

    Indeed, Luke.

    This silly gay bashing will only push the Ugandan economy further into crisis.

  • Richard Willmer

    I had difficulty reading the Press Release, but I gather that Langa is singling out the Law Faculty at Makerere as some kind of ‘hotbed of recruitment’. The academics there should be able to make short work of that nonsense … the main question being ‘will wavering MPs actually look at this whole situation logically?’

    Two NRM contacts of mine are becoming increasingly exasperated by this silly screaming on the part of Bahati, Langa and Co. (where are old Ssempa and Mmale these days, I wonder?). They understand that all this stuff is a stupid and dangerous diversion. I think that at least one of them may be quietly trying to ensure that as many of his/her colleagues as possible will ‘see sense’ before it’s too late.

    We’ll see what happens. There should very soon be a clearer indication of which way this one is going.

  • Maazi NCO

    Indeed, Luke…

    The name he gave is “Lule” not “Luke”. There is a difference between a Ugandan and a Christian/Hebrew name.

    Two NRM contacts of mine are becoming increasingly exasperated by this silly screaming on the part of Bahati, Langa and Co. (where are old Ssempa and Mmale these days, I wonder?).

    I completely agree. It is indeed exasperating to have to engage in the mindless repetitive act of shelving, unshelving and re-shelving photocopies of the Bahati Bill. The Bahati Bill is now parliamentary property not the personal property of Hon. David Bahati MP. This is a fact and nobody needs to scream about it.

    I think that at least one of them may be quietly trying to ensure that as many of his/her colleagues as possible will ‘see sense’ before it’s too late.

    This part of your gay propaganda statement just got me thinking of a song I once heard in Europe about something being too late. I am just getting round to whistling the tune to myself.

    We’ll see what happens. There should very soon be a clearer indication of which way this one is going.

    Wow, you must really have a lot of influence for someone claiming to be an ordinary teacher. I am sure everybody in Uganda (myself included) will one day come to genuflect before your gay majesty, Queen Richard Willmer XIV :D

    Am a Ugandan gay male. I went through the press release of this gentleman and i found out that the reason he gave was based on hatred and his own perception on our community.

    “A business man” can mean anything these days. It can be a trader, a wholesale importer, a factory owner, a restaurant owner, a pimp living off money earned from immoral sexual acts or somebody who essentially collects money from foreigners to promote their Gay Agenda. I am glad to hear that you pay your taxes. That is a good thing in an age where people trying hard to dodge the taxman. I do not need to remind you that gayism is a criminal offence in our penal code as amended in year 2000. A law abiding-citizen should respect the law and not try to subvert it with foreign connivance. This is something you should try to pass unto your conclave of foreign-directed gay sex militants whom I assume you were referring to with the phrase—”our community”.

  • Maazi NCO

    This silly gay bashing will only push the Ugandan economy further into crisis.

    I will make sure to tell inform government officials to stop arguing that destroying Mabira Forest to make way for sugarcane plantations is the surest way to ensure economic growth. As an alternative, I shall suggest the government build thousands of anal sex bedrooms and invite gay sex practitioners from all over Europe and America to come and satisfy their depraved sexual appetites in Uganda at a pretty price.

    I am sure the government will make loads of money from such an exotic sex tourism trade much than from the destruction of Mabira forest for the purposes of sugar production. There should be no fears about a gigantic boom in HIV/AIDS and STD cases since the gayism-obsessed Obama government and allied EU nations will be able to pick up all health bills including those for rare sodomy-specific diseases like rectal gonorrhea, fecal incontinence, etc, etc.

  • Richard Willmer

    Don’t be so silly. ‘Maazi’.

    Things are looking pretty wobbly in UG at the moment. The very last thing you need is a stupid law that could result in more chaos, corruption and possibly bloodshed, and less investment from overseas.

    If you really want to gripe about something, might I suggest campaigning re. the Tullow Oil situation and all that shady business (and with Minister Onek shuffled off to Internal Affairs, the likelihood of fair settlement for UG probably becomes even more remote), rather than spitting venom at your own (wealth-creating, taxpaying) compatriots?

  • Maazi NCO

    Oh yes, Bahati Bill will cause corruption, bloodshed, civil war, World War III, sports boycotts, international outrage, zero tourism, tsunamis, hurricanes, thunder strikes, earthquakes, bubonic plagues, hailstones, blah, blah, blah.

    Gay propaganda….

    Thanks for reminding me of our problems with corruption, but I am sure Ugandan parliamentarians can question the corrupt practices of the executive branch of the Ugandan State and simultaneously make laws to protect the culture and traditions of the Ugandan people.

  • Richard Willmer

    Enjoying that big fat juicy parliamentary pay rise, ‘Maazi’? How much was it again? Remind us.

    The Bahati Bill will have a negative economic impact if it becomes law. I think everybody understands that. Even you. There is also the public health aspect, of course.

    (By the way, my comment about Tullow was not intended to suggest corruption on Onek’s part; rather the reverse actually … that situation has probably worsened as a result of Onek’s departure, from what I’ve heard.)

  • Maazi NCO

    You can say whatever you like, but the Bahati Bill shall eventually become law. We have until 2015 to make it happen. This is no longer the personal matter of David Bahati MP. It is now a joint parliamentary effort.

  • Richard Willmer

    Well, we’ll see …

    Incidentally, ‘Maazi NCO MP’, you have in the past made clear your opposition to aspects of the Bill; now you seem to be saying that it will go through. (I always suspected that your occasional attempts to appear ‘reasonable’ were dishonest as well as unsuccessful … like that time you suggested that people who ‘did their thing in private’ would be ‘left alone’.)

    I’ll interpret your silence re. my first question as a ‘yes’.

  • Maazi NCO

    I’ll interpret your silence re. my first question as a ‘yes’.

    You made the comment above to draw a response from me. I will oblige you. The fact is that any bill before parliament is subject to changes up until the moment it is ready to be passed into law. Therefore, anyone who has concerns with aspects of the bill will always have a chance to voice them. I hope this clarifies my stand on this matter.

  • Richard Willmer

    I was talking about the big fat juicy parliamentary pay rise!
