African Americans & Real Christians should be in the Forefront of Protesting Domestic & International Anti-Gay Laws

African Americans & Real Christians should be in the forefront of Protesting Domestic & International Anti-Gay Laws and Violence
By Samuel Marcus Brown


In January of 2011 David Kato from the African nation of Uganda was bludgeoned to death. He was murdered shortly after a tabloid newspaper published names and photos of men it alleged were gay. He was a promiment gay rights activist. The cover included the words, "Hang Them". Authorities contend Kato's sexual orientation had nothing to do with the murder.


In March 2009 a group of American evangelicals held rallies and workshops in Uganda discussing how to turn gay people straight, how gay men sodomized teenage boys and how “the gay movement is an evil institution” intended to “defeat the marriage-based society.”

Uganda is a country where homophobia is so severe that their Parliament is now considering a bill to execute gay people.
Val Kalende, the chairwoman of one of Uganda’s gay rights groups, said in a statement.
“The Ugandan government and the so-called U.S. evangelicals must take responsibility for David’s blood.”


It is shameful and disgusting that some "Christians" has taken their twisted misguided interpretations of the bible; assigning them to come straight from the great sovereign God; it is this kind of narrow-mindedness which is the driving force behind the ignorant bigotry and prejudice that is being perpetuated by this religious group of anti-Christ Christians who call themselves evangelicals. They completely demoralize the Gospel of Jesus Christ and disrespect his sacrafice and then they mis-represent God's divine love and undermine his sovereignty; they should repent to the world.


As a follower of Jesus Christ, I love the Lord God with all of my heart who've given me a peace that surpasses all of the misunderstanding of the deep seated traditional religious prejudices of men which has absolutely nothing in common with Jesus Christ.


I have never participated nor have I ever had any kind of proclivity for pedophilia, beastiality, gang rape or orgies; which is also true for most of the same gender loving people that I know. I have never been molested nor have I ever molested anyone. However, I do know of more heterosexual people who've committed the mentioned offenses and have experienced molestation.


As I mentioned in my previous post; I would like for all Christians and non-Christians to restudy the bible in regards to sexuality and to re-study those 5 or 6 isolated misused verses within the historical context of who it was written to, when and why it was written.
Please remember that U.S.A  African slave owners professed to be Christians and they arrogantly misused and abused the many scriptural references about slavery to justify their hate and greed.

Unfortunately it is the man-made Religious Establishment (not Christ or true Christians) that has faithfully & carelessly defined same gender love/homosexuality as sin. If you love God, you will then keep his commandment of loving your brother as you love yourself; love does not inflict the religious tradition of taking scripture completely outside of it's original context to demonize your brothers and sisters in order to uphold man-made doctrinal prejudicial traditions. Proper scriptural context is the key.
Happy Black History Month!

SO many valid points that U make!!!! Your voice needs to be heard my the masses!!! I think you have the power to make a difference & even change some views of even the most stubborn of bigots. I love the point about U not being into animals ,pedophilia , rape or orgies as well as most the same gender loving people that you know , whereas the same can’t be said for a lot of the so called straight people that U know of... That is so true for so many of us.

Those with blood on their hands DO need to be held accountable!!!!!!! That should be black & white! No gray area!!!!!

Another great job, my friend!!!!!

Much love,
