Read what the Atlah World Wide Missionary Church has post in the middle of Manhattan, New York City:

“This is devastating what Obama is doing to the black man and the black woman, and how the white homo is now moving into the black neighborhoods looking for black men that have been converted into homosexuality. But black woman let me say something to you: you have a very hard time competing against a white homosexual male. He’s usually got money — a white homo usually has an American Express card. He usually has an opportunity at the theater — homos love the theater. They love to go out to dinners, parties, they love that kind of a thing… black people need to rise up in mass and recognize the utter destruction that Obama is going in to destroy the black family with these homosexual statements that he has done and release of demons.”

Hear it from the sociopath James David Manning, the pastor of the church, in this following video clip:

The fact that Mr Manning believes that it is so simple for straight black men to leave women behind and elope with homosexual males only point to one thing. Mr Manning is a closeted homosexual who has covered up his sexuality by embracing and  peddling religious dogma.

This week, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed into law a brutal anti-gay bill that includes life sentences for engaging gay sex and same-sex marriage. It puts many in the country in a dangerous situation with nowhere to go — until now. In a somewhat surprising move, Scotland has officially declared it will offer asylum to “any Ugandan” persecuted by the new laws.

Humza Yousaf, a Scottish member of parliament and minister for external affairs, wrote a letter to UK Foreign Secretary William Hague urging him to “offer asylum to any Ugandans who feel threatened or persecuted by the legis­lation.” He added, “Scotland will play her part in providing asylum for those seeking refuge from this draconian legislation.”

“The Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda is a huge step back for equality and I have written to the UK Government asking it to make the strongest possible representations to the Government of Uganda,” Yousaf wrote.

Yousaf’s letter comes shortly after Uganda strengthened its already draconian anti-gay laws and Scotland readies itself for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games this summer, when prominent members of the Ugandan government are expected to arrive in the city. However, despite any participating nation’s possible attempts, Scotland will work its hardest to be a safe and welcoming place for all athletes and guests.

“No one from any part of the Commonwealth who visits Scotland will be under any doubt about our values as a welcoming, open and tolerant society,” Yousaf wrote in his letter. He later said, “Ugandan legislation flies in the face of Scotland’s values as a welcoming, open and tolerant society and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.”

Uganda, which is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, has already had numerous anti-gay laws for several years, but the new Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014 (formerly known as the “Kill the Gays bill”) appears to be one of the most severe anti-gay laws in the world. It criminalizes all same-sex relations involving Ugandans both domestic and abroad , as well as the “promotion of homosexuality.” Offenders often face life in prison.

But perhaps Yousef’s letter isn’t going far enough. According to a recent report by theKaleidoscope Trust, a UK-based charity set up in 2011 to pressure Britain’s politicians on LGBT rights in the Commonwealth, same-sex relationships are still criminalized in 41 of the 53 Commonwealth states with penalties including life imprisonment and even death. So while Uganda’s recent bill is the newest example of heinous anti-gay legislation, there’s still a lot of work to be done, but the Kaleidoscope Trust thinks now is a good time to act, saying, “We have always felt the Games had an important part to play in tackling the scandal of LGBT abuses in the Commonwealth and welcome the Scottish Government taking the bull by the horns.”

The UK’s Foreign Office has not yet responded to Yousaf’s letter, but in a previous statement, Hague said, “We ask the government of Uganda to protect all its citizens and encourage tolerance, equality and respect. We will continue to press the government of Uganda to defend human rights for all, without discrimination on any grounds.”

California, Illinois, New York: three states where gay marriage is or will become legal within the next six months—and three states where less than half of people see gay sex as “morally acceptable,” estimates suggest. Of all the changes in attitudes toward LGBTQ issues over the last decade, perhaps this is the most remarkable: Americans seem to have concluded that what happens in other people’s bedrooms is none of their business.

There are lots of interesting findings in a new study released by the Public Religion Research Institute last week. Millennials are nearly twice as likely as their grandparents to support gay marriage, including the half of the young people who identify as Republicans. Many religious Americans have changed their minds on the issue since 2003, and a majority of Jews, white mainline Protestants, and white and Hispanic Catholics now support the issue. And since 1999, the proportion of Americans who support gay adoption has increased by 20 percentage points. Today, 58 percent support it, as opposed to 38 percent.

But the most surprising statistics are buried toward the end of the study. A majority of those surveyed said that sex between adults of the same gender was morally wrong. It was a slim majority—only 51 percent—and roughly 43 percent said that gay sex is fine. There were regional differences, too. About half of Californians and Floridians had no objection to gay sex, while only a third of Texans were okay with it.

Well, at least they are not claiming that it is unnatural to engage in homosexual sex. Morality is after all a human artifact derived to a large extent from religious dogma.  In time people will come to understand the natural expression  of homosexuality and apply to it more enlightened moral standards  that are not in conflict with the natural expression of human sexuality.

Sadly, many heterosexual still have a false sense of sexual entitlement  that makes them believe their sexuality is right and that homosexuality is wrong.   But, homosexuality is as right as heterosexuality; in the same way being right handed is as right as being left handed. No mankind is not in danger of ending because of homosexuality. The majority of homosexual can engage in sex with the opposite sex and reproduce. So can the majority of men engage in sex with other men, as evidenced by the behavior of heterosexual men in prison.  In fact, close to 60% to 80% of homosexual have off springs and are married to members of the opposite sex. The percentage of homosexual that have embraced their authentic sexual orientation and living as gay  is between 20% to 40% of homosexuals.

The Ugandan government just signed into law draconian anti-homosexual measures which may result in lifetime imprisonment for some people. This is a clear violation of international standards of human rights, and a huge step backward for the people of Uganda. The government, and the people, need to understand how serious this decision is. Just like the Apartheid laws in South Africa, we need to disengage, boycott, and otherwise call to account Uganda for this action. they cannot be allowed to act this way and expect to be welcome players in the world. We, the people of the United States, can take a decisive lead in any effort to reverse this evil law, by the Executive branch of our govt acting immediately to bring consequences for this action, which will bring social and medical disaster.

The gains that had made Uganda’s shilling the second-best performing African currency this year are evaporating after President Yoweri Museveni imposed harsher penalties against homosexuals.

The shilling slumped 2.9 percent against the dollar since Museveni signed the bill on Feb. 24, the biggest decline among all currencies after Ukraine’s hryvnia andHaiti’s gourde. That’s a reversal of the first seven weeks of the year, when the shilling rallied 3.1 percent, the most on the continent after the 6.8 percent surge in Somalia’s currency.

The crackdown on homosexuality has caused a backlash against Uganda, a $20 billion economy that exports more coffee than any other African nation. Denmark andNorway have pulled or redirected aid while Sweden said it’s reconsidering its program and Virgin Group Ltd.’s Richard Branson called for a business boycott in an interview with CNN. Standard & Poor’s cut Uganda’s credit rating one level last month to B, five below investment grade, on concern its budget deficit is swelling and after donors including the World Bank and U.K. suspended support in 2012 because of corruption.

“Aid inflows definitely matter for the balance of payments in Uganda to a higher extent than inNigeria and many other African countries,” Mark Bohlund, a London-based sub-Saharan Africaeconomist at IHS Global Insight, said by phone. “The homosexuality bill definitely makes it more difficult to get this suspended budget support reinstated. I was fairly optimistic they would be able to do it in the current fiscal year, but now I think that is out of the question.”

Twin Deficits

The currency fell 2.1 percent yesterday, the biggest one-day slide since March 2012, to 2,512 per dollar. That was the worst decline among 24 sub-Saharan African currencies monitored by Bloomberg. It strengthened 1.5 percent to 2,474.77 per dollar by 4:49 p.m. in Kampala.

Uganda’s central bank sold dollars for a second day today to reduce volatility in the market, Stephen Mulema, the director of financial markets at the Bank of Uganda, said by phone, without giving more details. The currency’s drop is because of “sentiments that it will depreciate” and market positions taken yesterday were “not proper,” he said.

The shilling’s slump may not be related to the signing of the law, but rather the result of other economic issues, Tamale Mirundi, the president’s press secretary, said by phone from Kampala, the capital. As for the law, he said, investors and other countries “cannot force us to take what we don’t want.”

Aid Dependence

Uganda, which relies on aid for about 20 percent of its annual budget, may post a deficit equal to 7.1 percent of gross domestic product in the fiscal year through June, up from an estimated 4.1 percent gap the previous year, the International Monetary Fund said in a report dated Dec. 30. The country’s current-account deficit, the broadest measure of foreign trade, may widen to 13.4 percent of GDP in the fiscal year through June from an estimated 9.9 percent a year earlier, the IMF said.

The deficits will put more pressure on the currency, sending it to an average exchange-rate of 2,680 per dollar this year, Jacques Nel, an economist at NKC Independent Economists in Paarl,South Africa, said by phone yesterday.

“In the long run, foreign-direct investment could be withdrawn, which will have a bigger impact than the donor aid,” Nel said. The law “creates increased risk that companies may no longer invest in the country or invest less,” he said.

Lenders including London-based Barclays Plc (BARC) and Johannesburg-based Standard Bank Group Ltd., Africa’s largest, said in response to e-mailed questions that they are reviewing the legislation. Woolworths Holdings Ltd., a South African food and clothing retailer, said in an e-mailed response that its stores in Uganda “remain open to talent of all races, cultures, beliefs and sexual orientation.”

Life Sentence

“I don’t want to spend money in Uganda,” Branson said in an interview with CNN on Feb. 25, without saying whether he has business interests in the country. “I would rather spend money in countries that treat their people decently.”

The law, which carries a life prison sentence for some homosexual acts, was enacted after Museveni said scientists in the country found no genetic link to being gay. In Nigeria, where gay sex has been illegal since before independence from the U.K. in 1960, President Goodluck Jonathan last month signed a law that imposes a 14-year jail sentence for same-sex couples. Homosexuality is a crime in 38 of 54 sub-Saharan Africa nations, according to Amnesty International.

Stephen Kaboyo, managing director at Kampala-based Alpha Capital Partners Ltd., said the outcry over the law won’t hurt the Ugandan government’s finances or the shilling.

The President of Uganda on signing into law a bill harshening penalties for those arrested for being gay, made ludicrous claims that gay people give each other worms through sex, and that people are only gay because they have sex for money.

 

 

A day after Uganda passed harsh anti-gay laws, a tabloid newspaper came out with a list of what it called the country’s top homosexuals.

The cover of the Red Pepper newspaper read, “EXPOSED! Uganda’s 200 Top Homos Named,” with several photographs next to the headline.
