A commentary on news and events in Uganda and elsewhere


Just an ordinary bloke.

KAMPALA - After typing out close to a thousand words on the gay debate currently raging in Uganda, the computer f's up and I lose the lot. Moreover on a hot, humid wednesday afternoon. Here is what I meant to say: as long as it is between two consenting adults, I don't really care what goes on in people's bedrooms.

There is a difference between homosexuality and theft, murder, rape, paedophilia, necrophilia, female genital mutilation. If someone's actions do not violate other people's rights, their judgement should be left to God or whoever will be there to dispense justice on D-Day.

Pastor Martin Ssempa, who led the anti-gay demo, gave a brilliant quote, that God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. But the idea that we should send cops to check out which courses people play their golf on is ludicrous. They should focus on the really important crimes and we have enough of those already. After all, even if your name is Adam, you are more likely to have your pockets rifled by the government's tax collectors than have your pants pulled down by a guy named Steve.

Needless to say, if you are reading this in jail or on your way there, you are not expected to pay tax -- although it is in your interest to watch your back, if you permit the flaccid pun.

What gets me with those guys is that with all the freedom they want, they come back and take away kids that were pushed by a traight man and woman. Why dont they leave our children alone. If that is how they want to be, let them not wait for straight people to have children for them to recruit into their crappy beliefs of homosexuality. They should push their own kids through watever and leave own lives if they think they are normal.

I have heard claims and allegations of gay activists recruiting young people, especially those in boarding school. I don't have any evidence so I can't say whether this is true or not. Nevertheless, I agree that any inducement of young people who can't make independent decisions or face the consequences thereof, into sex (homo or hetero, mark you) is wrong.

Some things just cant be tolerated and I think one should be concerned about what goes on in peoples bedrooms. Any funny business, like gays, then, to the gallows. You think God was tipsy when he did that Sodom and Gommorah thingy?

Daniel I will ask you for a little time to provide you with the evidence. just watch this space. These Adams and Steves are pathetic.

What is frustrating is that no one sees the moral corruption we all must adopt in order to justify this law.

We have basically given hatred and hypocrisy and ignorance and self-righteousness a gun and a badge.

The Christians cannot see that there is nothing Christian about the emotions that motivate homophobia.

Lord, have mercy. We have cast a hailstorm of first stones!

Ki Danny, what's up?

SMG, what do you think about cross-generational hetero sex?

I will tell you what I think about Cross Generational Sex: I love it! The concept is beautiful and although the consequences are horrible, the concept is excellent.

It's another excuse to come up with another conference and another catch phrase and another opportunity to spend money.

Instead of tackling the real issues, we give them names. Like homosexuality and all. We are just pathetic that although we were built in God's image, we are weak.

How do we use God to punish people who are different from us? If Steve wants to have his way with Adam, let him have his way as long as Steve and Adam know that its painful and not as pleasant as sex with Eve. Period

Daniel, we live in a free world right? Where consenting adults can do their thing, right? Very right.

Iam inclined to agree with SMG. The gays have an agenda to build their numbers and mainstream their thing.

No problem. But the choice of schools for and young impressionable kids, using all baits kids love, hiphop, bling stuff, movies, showbiz!

To introduce new paradigms for parenting. That is the problem. Besides, I believe cultures are an important societal fabric to be upheld in order to survive as a people. The gays are bent on destroying our that, don't you think?

Having said that, GAY movement is one of the weapons to destroy African culture. And people complain of slavery, colonisation, neocolonialism, imperialism.

Ariaka, you use nice words to confuse the gay discussion which is common albeit very disappointing.
If, for example you want Daniel and others to believe that the gays are one weapon destroying our African culture, what would you say about the allegations that Mwanga our one time Kabaka was gay and led the Uganda martyrs to the gallows because they rescented and opted for christianity? Point here is, gay was right at the helm of African culture(in this case, and i'm not saying it was right).
That said i think gay issues are more complex than simplistic ideologies that people come up with believing they shall be supported.
I personally have no problem if two consenting adults understanding what they are doing choose to do their thing and the world calls it gay...
And i think to tie culture to it is an absolute misrepresentation.

On the other hand i agree that children need protection, but still i can't blame gays for destroying the desired values in children, guess it is a whole package that forms the challenges we have today.
