Uganda Remembers Death Penalty for Refusing Homosexual Relations With King Mwanga

The Death Penalty in Uganda

MEDIA ADVISORY, Dec. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- By official count 22 young men were executed under Uganda's law on homosexuality. The law in question required that all men and boys in Uganda be willing to submit to the homosexual seduction of it's ruler, King Mwanga. When Ugandans began to convert to Christianity in the 1800s, a group of Catholics, led by Charles Lwanga, refused to allow themselves to be sodomized by the King. Enraged, King Mwanga had them torturously bound, marched 37 miles and then roasted alive in a fire pit. The date of their execution was June 3rd, 1886, and is today a national holiday commemorating Uganda's rejection of homosexuality and commitment to Christian values.
It should be no surprise, therefore, that modern Ugandans are very unhappy that homosexual political activists from Europe and the United States are working aggressively to re-homosexualize their nation. Ugandan citizens report a growing number of foreign homosexual men coming to their country to turn desperately poor young men from the slums into their personal houseboys, and that some girls in public schools have been paid to recruit others into lesbianism. Foreign interests have exerted intense pressure on Uganda's government to compromise its laws regarding sexual morality, often using their control over foreign aid funding for leverage....
As a Christian attorney and international human rights advocate who has worked closely with Uganda's pro- family movement, I have a special interest in this issue. In my view, homosexuality (indeed all sex outside of marriage) should be actively discouraged by society -- but only as aggressively as necessary to prevent the mainstreaming of alternative sexual lifestyles, and with concern for the preservation of the liberties of those who desire to keep their personal lifestyles private. Marriage-based culture served humanity very favorably during the centuries when homosexuality was disapproved but tolerated as a sub-culture in America, England and elsewhere. It has obviously not fared well in the decades since the so- called sexual revolution kicked open Pandora's Box and unleashed both rampant heterosexual promiscuity and "Gay Pride" on the world.
In March of this year I had the privilege of addressing members of the Ugandan parliament in their national assembly hall when the anti-homosexuality law was just being considered...

Many people are quick to judge and have a reaction without righteous judgment.

Proverbs 8:13-15 (New International Version)

13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil;
       I hate pride and arrogance,
       evil behavior and perverse speech.

14 Counsel and sound judgment are mine;
       I have understanding and power.

15 By me kings reign
       and rulers make laws that are just;

But at the same time some people decide to take out their own judgment like King Mwanga did. The debate between Christians who are against homosexuality isn’t something new to us. Each generation and culture has decided which path to take.

In today’s society we see a war going on between free love and marriage. And the deciding factor now is a court. God has been removed from the law of this Earth.

As history shows, the world will become more dark than ever before. Values will continue to morph until everything is not black or white anymore but a fine gray.

The Bible-God’s Holy Word and the law for Christians to follow-clearly states about sex and it’s true place in marriage between a man and a woman.

Matthew 19:4-6 (Amplified Bible)

4He replied, Have you never read that He Who made them from the beginning made them male and female,

5And said, For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be united firmly (joined inseparably) to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?(A)

6So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder (separate).

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (New Century Version)

9-10 Surely you know that the people who do wrong will not inherit God's kingdom. Do not be fooled. Those who sin sexually, worship idols, take part in adultery, those who are male prostitutes, or men who have sexual relations with other men, those who steal, are greedy, get drunk, lie about others, or rob—these people will not inherit God's kingdom.

So now after reflecting on God’s word you have to make a choice! Will you become like King Mwanga and demand that all must obey your lifestyle or be put to shame, ridicule, or even death?! Certainly not I pray!

As Christians we must learn to love the sinner but not the sin. From my own point of view I don’t believe that homosexuality is a complete lifestyle but a sex act that you partake in.

Yes if you decide, to those who want to stop living as a homosexual, to change only the Lord can truly heal you.

Mankind has failed in reaching people for the Lord in this respect!

Too many Christians are shunned away because of there sinful natures. So with this in mind I must  now remind you that we that are the children of God and are high priests that can go directly to the Father in heaven. That ALL SIN is COMMON to MAN! That IRON does sharpen iron. We should learn to love one another and help reach those that are most in need of such a basic gift. The gift of love and forgiveness.

Proverbs 28:13 (New American Standard Bible)

13He who (A)conceals his transgressions will not prosper,
         But he who (B)confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 (Contemporary English Version)

12Even if you think you can stand up to temptation, be careful not to fall. 13You are tempted in the same way that everyone else is tempted. But God can be trusted not to let you be tempted too much, and he will show you how to escape from your temptations.

Proverbs 27:17 (New International Version)

17 As iron sharpens iron,
       so one man sharpens another.

Mark 3:28 (New Living Translation)

28 “I tell you the truth, all sin and blasphemy can be forgiven
