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

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.

KAMPALA,Uganda (Catholic Online) - On Friday, December 20, 2013, the Ugandan Parliament voted overwhelmingly for a bill that will protect traditional family values in their country. This bill will introduce a penalty for:

-homosexual acts where one of the partners is infected with HIV
-homosexual acts with minors
-homosexual acts with the disabled
-repeated sexual offences
-any person who conducts a "marriage" ceremony for same-sex couples

As can be expected, this has caused some serious shock waves throughout the Western world. Within hours of this vote, President Obama, an ardent proponent of the LGBT agenda, lamented the bill denouncing it as "odious". And Archbishop Desmond Tutu also chimed in as he compared it to apartheid. The international secular media (CNN, BBC, and the rest) are openly condemning this move as "homophobia" and hatred.

By all standards, Uganda has displeased some real powers and principalities in the developed  world and they know it! But as David Bahati, the Ugandan MP behind the bill, told the AFP news agency: Because we are a God-fearing nation, we value life in a holistic way. It is because of those values that members of parliament passed this bill regardless of what the outside world thinks.

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.

Just like everyone else, our leaders can see the bitter fruits of the ongoing sexual revolution in the West- death (through abortion), depopulation (through contraception), disease (sexually transmitted ones), divorce, depression and deconstruction of the family- all poisonous fruits that abound in Europe and America precisely as a result of a voracious sexual revolution which is growing out of control to accommodate every sexual perversion, whim and craving.

Yes, our leaders have a right and even a duty to protect Africans from all that can hurt or destroy us and it is not "odious" to do so, neither is it apartheid!

In many Western countries, the highest rates of new HIV infections are found in the LGBT communities.

Scientists from the French National Institute for Public Health Surveillance in 2008, found  that nearly half of the 7,000 people newly infected with HIV in the country were MSM's (men who have sex with men) and according to them, the incidence among the MSM is 200 times higher than in the heterosexual population.

Given the deep and painful impact of  HIV in Africa why should anyone attack the Ugandans for trying to pass a bill that directly and realistically addresses this reality?

Looking at other aspects of the bill, it is clear that the leaders are trying to protect their young and vulnerable ones from paedophiles.

In fact the Ugandans themselves have historically seen the ugliness of sexual violence when unleashed on  children, that was exactly what led to the matrydom of  the Ugandan martyrs- Charles Lwanga and his friends who were brutally killed for rejecting the homosexual advances of their King Mwanga II of Buganda.

In more recent times, across Europe and America we continue to see and hear of the serious damage done to minors who are lured  or forced into homosexual relationships by modern day paedophiles.

This may be a difficult truth for many to accept but paedophilia festers in any society where the homosexual lifestyle is promoted. Case in point is the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), a paedophile advocacy organisation in the United States working to abolish age of consent laws that criminalise adult sexual involvement with minors. These men want to have sexual access to young boys who are vulnerable and impressionable at best.

Surely no one, not even the most pro-gay leaders in the world, should accept this as collateral damage.

Our children are precious and as such, the Ugandan leaders have taken a concrete step to protect them from the clammy hands of sexual predators.

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.

The social engineers of this world are ready and willing to cut off, knock down or completely demolish the virtues that stand against their vision for their new world where sexual morality, marriage, motherhood, faith and family life are becoming redefined to embrace a more amorphous, fluid and "free" design.

And everyone is expected to blend in,those who cannot blend in must bend, and those who cannot bend will surely be broken and burnt for good measure.

In this way they have already broken so many. They have shut down businesses, closed down religious adoption services, terminated work contracts, sued dissidents, sacked workers, suspended movie stars,attacked churches, harassed Christian preachers, expelled students, threatened small businesses, punished big businesses , stifled free speech, taken away conscience rights and violated religious liberty.

Yes, those who will not blend will bend, those who will not bend will be broken. 

I cannot help but wonder if they will bend or break Uganda for trying to uphold their biblical values and for trying to protect their minors and disabled.

Will Uganda be bent or broken or burnt? Or will their show of strength inspire leaders from other African countries to raise their own flags of virtue and value? 

I hope so. I pray so!
