We have no apologies for Uganda's anti-gay stance

Listening to the widely revered Bishop of York, Dr. John Ssentamu on BBC radio [commenting on] David Bahati’s anti-homosexuality bill only reinforced my belief that the Day of Judgment has closed in.

Joined by some of our own clergy, leading opposition fanatics have jumped into the fray to oppose the anti-gay bill, allegedly aimed at them. My analysis of the touts of homosexuality world over points to the fact that they have always cloaked their arguments in the guise of sexual orientation theory, and homosexuality immutability paradigms.

More than often, gay activists have argued that homosexuality is innate, just like eating, breathing, etc., and that therefore homosexuals desire equal treatment as a minority group.

None the less, even if we are to disregard God’s good intentions in creating the institution of marriage, most of the literature points to the fact that homosexuality is a behaviour, a habit learnt just like bestiality, pedophilia, smoking, or theft.

Moreover, this is reinforced by the absence on earth of any conclusive empirical study that points to homosexual immutability.

Granted, rights of minority groups have to be protected. However, it’s also imperative to note that these rights are not absolute and therefore their observance has to be within the tenets of the law of the land and societal ethos.

In addition, Uganda is among the few countries where society has an inherent right to regulate sexual conduct (regardless of sexual orientation) which threatens public health. On this account, our penal code regards homosexuality a criminal act.

Moreover, Hon. Bahati’s anti-gay bill is just a reinforcement of the same and is about filling up any gaps within the existing law, given the level of sexual perversion.

The bill is about protecting the endangered natural African race and family, now at the mercy of the wealthy West, selfishly sounding drums of cutting off aid if Uganda cannot practise sodomy.
Pegging aid to acts of homosexuality is in itself a societal evil.

Uganda, the pearl of Africa and a blessed country, was exemplary in passing the anti-Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) bill into law.

Regardless of the arguments that the proponents of FGM fronted in the guise of human rights, enough was enough. The daughters of Uganda can now walk with their heads high, liberated from such de-humanising and traumatising ordeal.

Fellow Ugandans, no one owes us a living; we must guard the dignity of the natural family for the future of our children and grand children.

How will history judge us if we fail to appreciate the holiness of the human body, a divine creation of man in the image of the omnipotent lord!

Every part of the body was carefully designed for a specific purpose; the eye, the limbs, head, ears, mouth, nose, plus the anus, specifically for faecal disposal.

Throughout history, Jewish and Christian scholars singled out the sin surrounding God’s destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah as homosexual behaviour (New Testament, Rom. 1:26, 1 Cor. 6:9 and the holy Quran al- jawaab al-kaafi (P.106)).

If the price to pay for our own action is for donors to close their taps plus death threats, so let it be. No level of intimidation what so ever should deter us from condemning and fighting such evil behaviour.

Salutation to those Ugandans – Bishop Henry Luke Orombi, MP Bahati, and Dr. James Nsaba Buturo for being among the innumerable that have stood up for what Ugandans deserve.
I have no apologies for Uganda being anti-gay.

The author is MP Kagoma County in Jinja District.
