A Ugandan pastor has said US President Barack Obama’s comments at a prayer breakfast in Washington condemning the anti-homosexuality bill in Uganda signifies a disappointment to Africans.
In a statement to 256news.com, Sempa who heads the Family Policy and Human Rights Center, based at Makerere in Kampala said Obama, a descendant of Kenya in East Africa, is panicking to protect abnormal sexual acts when innocent babies are killed daily in America in its abortion industry.
Read Sempa’s response to Obama verbatim below:
Statement to President Barack Obama on his Prayer breakfast comments concerning Uganda’s anti-homosexuality law.
“We may disagree about gay marriage, but surely we can agree that it is unconscionable to target gays and lesbians for who they are — whether it’s here in the United States or, as Hillary mentioned, more extremely in odious laws that are being proposed most recently in Uganda,” Obama told the National Prayer Breakfast on 4 February in Washington.
First, President Barack Obama makes a mistake, gays and lesbians are never targeted for who they are, rather what they do. It is the repugnant sexual acts, which they do, which constitutes a crime, a sin and a rebellion against the order of nature.
Here in Africa, we believe homosexuals can CHANGE. It is very disappointing for Africans to hear Obama who ran on the ticket of “change we can believe in” suddenly growing cold feet when we postulate in faith that homosexuals can truly change. We wish to tell him that Sodomy is not the change we want, nor can believe in.
Secondly, we wish to remind Obama that the unborn babies killed under his extremely odious laws of abortion, are the ones who are killed not for what they have done, but just because they are. Shame on his administration for panicking to protect abnormal sexual acts when innocent babies are killed daily in America in its abortion industry which is funded by his administration.
Obama’s comments will not stop the passage of the anti-homosexuality bill, but rather it has shown us that of all the problems that Africa has, the priority is not HIV/AIDS or trade but Sodomy.
In History we will remember President George W. Bush for helping to stop the spread of the deadly HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis with his presidential emergency fund (PEPFAR).
On the other hand we are writing Obama’s history as one whose single focus is a divisive obsession with the spread of sodomy in Africa.
We are sad that the presidential emergency response of Barack Obama is the use of the white house as a bully pulpit to spread sodomy, while enabling the murder of millions of unborn babies in his unconscionable and extremely odious abortion laws.
