Extreme homophobe Uganda minister accused of promoting homosexuality by showing gay porn in churches. Huff Post article.
Martin Ssempa is part of the cadre of killer sharks circling the helpless gay people in Uganda with persecution, arrest, demonization. He was famous for showing gay porn at his churches, supposedly to promote disgust, and for "educational purposes".
"He explains to the Church what the homosexuals do step by step baring all and hiding nothing. Pastor Ssempa has homosexual porn on his laptop and all his gadgets. He almost seems obsessed with it." I doubt that he shows loving scenes of gay couples. Whatever he shows, I imagine there are hetero equivalents to each scenario. Regardless, if I was a gay teen going to his church, it might be the only access I have to show there really are other gay people in the world, and I might feel a little inspired, in a perverse way.
If you swim with the sharks, you better not have any bleeding wounds.
Those "terms" seem to be coming from the same hyper-bigoted talk radio dingbats, like Limblow, who still calls any woman who wants the same rights in the workplace as men a "feminazi." He's been doing that for 30 or 40 years.
These people have NO logical reason to discriminate against anyone, but for some reason they fear women, LGBT people, immigrants, people of color, whatever, so all they can do is call us names. Like little bullies on the playground.
They are driven by irrational fear, that they can't express except by name-calling.
Oh dear! I have not been aware of the language used by people who should know better, yet speak without embarrassment when referring to GLBT in such venomous terms. Your example, Daniel, is so full of hate language, even in the face a growing awareness that there is no reason to fear or shun people of different sexual orientations. If anything, the shunning should be directed to those who raised up little girls and boys to deny their sexuality. That is true child abuse
Dear Sentient, "conservatives" are only concerned with conserving their own money and power. They claim that everything was just dandy in they "good old days" when people like Astor and Prescott bush's father ruled Wall St...and garment workers starved (or died in fires.) They hate all the reforms that FDR's administration introduced, and would be delighted if middle class workers all died the day they turned 65...well I would have been happy to do that...then...but that was 10 years ago, and now I'm adding my little bit to the fight for EVERYONE's constitutional rights. I don't give a sh*t what color they are, or who they love, or even what they worship...as long as the latter keep their beliefs out of my government, and face.
I'm an angry old b*tch, And I've had enuf of smarmy politicians.
This may sound unrealistic to many, but I have been involved in political campaigns before and I know some things about getting the attention of politicians.
1. Watch the videos by Sean Faircloth. He is a great strategist for atheism.
2. Read Rules for Radicals, a book politicians hate because it is responsible for some effective politicking.
3. Read Pedagogy of the Oppressed, by Paulo Freire. He was good at rallying the people.
4. Form coalition of like-minded people, i.e. gays, and lobby your congresspeople. Sean confirms my experience, politicians pay attention to people who talk to them. Form a group, develop an action plan, and go talk to the candidates. Ask them specific questions of interest to you. Tell them what your position is. Have talking points ahead of time so you can demonstrate the need for action.
Personally, I found I could have an effect when I called up candidates in my district and made appointments to see them privately. Sometimes they listen. Sometimes they don't. At least you can watch what they say and do publicly and how they vote to know if they heard you. It is better to know your enemy. Politicians are wonderful manipulators.
Who was the president who was known as agreeing with everybody and then voted from his own understanding?
OH! sk8eycat ! What an awful thing to do .. to the son, no wonder he was angry, ... and to his wife. I hope she didn't allow that to happen to her more than one. If he would drop her once, he has a capacity to do it again.
You have seen some rough relationships in your time. Building healthy relationships is the best revenge for yourself! In fact, it is the only revenge that makes sense to me.
