Ugandan Anti-Gay Legislation Overturned! Sad Day For Some Evangelicals.
The three American evangelical Christians who encouraged the Ugandans to enact a law that made the persistent practice of homosexuality punishable by death must be very disappointed that the high court of Uganda has struck down that law.
The evangelical Christians were Scott Lively, an author who has written several books opposing homosexuality; Caleb Lee Brundidge, a self-professed former gay man who conducts sessions to heal homosexuality; and Don Schmierer, a board member of Exodus International, an organization devoted to promoting "freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ". The three men held conferences in Uganda with the theme being the "gay agenda": "how to make gay people straight, how gay men often sodomized teenage boys and how 'the gay movement is an evil institution' whose goal is 'to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity' "
These claims are untrue. Homosexuals do not recruit heterosexuals. Homosexuals are not pedophiles; pedophiles are pedophiles! The gay movement is not out to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity. They want to expand society's definition of marriage to include same-sex couples. As for promiscuity, these evangelicals need to refer to Matthew 7:3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?" The divorce rate of evangelicals is highest among major U.S. religions, including atheism. The Bible Belt leads the nation in the consumption of Gay and straight internet pornography. The majority of states with a high percentage of gay viewers is in the South. According to internet site data, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia lead the South in gay porn consumption, and the state with the highest percentage of gay porn viewers in the nation is Mississippi at 5.6%.
