‘I do not support the proposed anti-homosexuality law as written. However, if the offending sections were sufficiently modified, the proposed law would represent an encouraging step in the right direction’

SOUNDBITES — “I commend the courage of the Ugandan people. During the past decade or so, Uganda has been one of the few countries of the world that has firmly resisted the enormous power and relentless pressure of the international ‘gay’ lobby, while other developing nations such as South Africa and Brazil have been systematically homosexualized. This is one of the reasons that Uganda’s AIDS rate went from the highest to the lowest in Africa during this same time period. Let me be absolutely clear. I do not support the proposed anti-homosexuality law as written. It does not emphasize rehabilitation over punishment and the punishment that it calls for is unacceptably harsh. However, if the offending sections were sufficiently modified, the proposed law would represent an encouraging step in the right direction. As one of the first laws of this century to recognize that the destructiveness of the ‘gay’ agenda warrants opposition by government, it would deserve support from Christian believers and other advocates of marriage-based culture around the world.” —Defend the Family International chief Scott Lively, who insists he is not an architect of Uganda’s Kill The Gays bill (via)

      So ‘re-education camps” or prison instead of death.

      So the headline should be: Family International says no to death penalty for gays but yes to prison.

      This is good. This guy is making it impossible for any church that doesn’t want to be branded crazy to work with him. Brand names ministers already reject him– now the Holy D-listers may have to start rejecting invites if he’s on the program, too.

      If anyone feels like emailing to statement to sites that host people with blogs that are pushing his books, it might get them to renounce him.

      Scott Lively is as crazy as Paul Cameron, and anything that makes that harder to deny makes the world safer for gay people.

      Uh huh. We’ll see how much the supposedly non-insane churchies want to distance themselves when a delegation of these Ugandan lunatics shows up in DC next February for the National Prayer Breakfast, at which Obama is scheduled to speak.

      And won’t that be a great position for Obama to find himself in? It’s a moment when few people who voted for him are going to be satisfied with his preference for the mushy middle.

      If the law was modified, it wouldn’t matter, because it would just become the first step to eventually executing gays. The first step would be to dehumanize them.

      Yes, this is what happens when you have imaginary friends–they start to validate your insanity. Instead of acknowledging the voice in their heads as an echo, they think that someone else is speaking and agreeing with them. Start with a faulty premise (Faith) and it’s no wonder you end up with conclusions completely divorced from reality. When you’re nothing but an asshole, it’s unsurprising when the god you create is an asshole too.

      They have decreased, from around 15% to 5% since the 90′s, but not because of homosexuality laws. It was the large mobilization of the government to increase sex ed, use condoms, and raise awareness of the epidemic. Their government acted quicker and more strongly than others.

      Also, right now, the prevalence is higher in women than in men (7.5% vs. 5%) and 25% of AIDS transmission is from mother to child.

      Correlation does not imply causation. I’m guessing Scott Lively failed statistics. Or maybe passed it with flying colors if he went to a christian university.

      BOYCOTT UGANDAN COFFEE!

      BOYCOTT UGANDAN COFFEE!

      See recent blog posts at http://www.JointheImpact.com and http://www.conversiontherapy.blogspot.com for details regarding this boycott of Ugandan Coffee. The boycott is just one response to Uganda’s draconian “Kill the Gays” law, which is expected to pass Uganda’s parliament in the next few weeks.

      To the list of coffees included in the first post, please at UGANDAN DELICIOUS PEACE COFFEE. This coffee is currently distributed in the United States by the Thanksgiving Coffee Company, located in Fort Bragg, California. The motto for this coffee is “Not just a cup – but a JUST cup.” However, there is no justice at all in Uganda for gays and lesbians.

      Drop this business a note or call them to tell them you why you will not buy their product and that they’re supporting a homophobic and oppressive government.

      Thanksgiving Coffee Company •
      Mail Order (800) 648-6491 • Wholesale (800) 462-1999
      19100 South Harbor Drive, Fort Bragg, CA 95437

      BOYCOTT UGANDAN COFFEE!

      Uganda is on the verge of passing a horrific new law that would sentence gays and lesbians in that country to death or life inmprisonment. It would sentence people who know homosexuals and do not report them to three years in prison. Rachel Maddow has covered this proposed “Kill the Gays” law extensively on her program, and news stories about this massive human rights violation are all over the internet. This law has not yet passed the Ugandan parliament, but no one doubts that it will.

      What can we here in America do? Uganda’s national budget is extremely dependent upon foreign aid, and the United States provides a large portion of that aid. Contact your legislators and senators. Insist that they take notice of what’s happening in Uganda and urge that, if this law passes, all American foreign aid immediately be discontinued.

      But we can do more. We can boycott Uganda’s largest export product, and that’s coffee. Particularly, it’s coffee made from Robusta and Arabica coffee beans.

      Do not buy coffee labeled Robusta or Arabica without consulting the label. These are the two primary types of coffee grown in Uganda. If the label says Uganda, put it back on the shelf and inform the store owner why you will not buy it.

      Starbucks is a huge purchaser of Ugandan coffee. Let your local coffee shop know about this law. Inform them that you won’t be buying any coffee product from Uganda. Ask them to discontinue that coffee.

      Dean & Deluca, an upscale specialty store with locations in many major cities, carries a variety of Ugandan coffees.

      Millstone Coffees also distributes brands made with Ugandan beans.

      Boycott any coffee labeled “Ugandan Gold,” which is produced and distributed by an Evanglical Anglican group in Uganda and distributed by Old Time Coffee Co out of Middlesex, PA.

      Boycott any product called “Ugandan Mountain Coffee,” which is distributed by Coffee Legends, Inc.

      Act now. Don’t wait. Enlist your friends and spread the word. Boycott Ugandan Coffee.

      Scott Lively, Don Schmierer and Caleb Lee Brundidge, and others like them seem to think they can spread hatred and then, when hate turns to murder, hide behind “Christianity” to defend their actions. They all have the kind of blood on their hands that even Tide Detergent can’t wash out.

      @SoylentDIva: Homophobia is a term used by liars to brand those who speak the truth. And “yes” homosexuality can be cured because it is a sickness and a disease. But you believe man’s wisdom over that of God’s. Let’s see how that works out in the end.

      @ParkerLansing: What murder are you talking about? It wouldnt be that of David Kato, the Ugandan homosexual activist. You see when he was murdered people like you came out and said it was because of homophobia and Pastor Scott was the cause of this. But as we later found it, the media lied and hid the truth. You see Kato was killed by his homosexual houseboy lover that he bailed out of jail. And this homosexual prostitute was mad that Kato didnt pay him, so he bashed his head in with a hammer. You see its all about sex for the homosexual. Its all about the immorality and it has always been that way.
