Watch this outrageous Video showing Bishop David Kiganda in the presence of David Bahati declaring Death for Homosexuals.
By Melanie Nathan, February 23, 2013.
This Video is older news but can now be seen in a different light, when noting that U.K. Preacher Paul Shinners has yet to answer questions about his preaching at the past Ugandan National New Year’s Eve prayer rally, hosted by David Kiganda. Kiganda is seen in the Video which calls for death to homosexuals. Kiganda was Paul Shinners’ host.
Last month I blogged about Shinner’s participation in the rally and quoted his words where he endorsed the “plan” that would bless Uganda, in the context of the call by preachers for the passage of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, otherwise known as “The Kill the Gays Bill.”
While Shinners has not denied the quote, he has tried to distance himself from his message. He has issued a statement saying that he is not “homophobic.” But he has failed to answer the questions which I have posed to him, as well as those posed by bloggers DB Law and Barry Duke. He has also solicited the help of U.K. local St. Neots press as well as local Christian press to come his defense to denigrate me and other bloggers who have exposed his appearance in Uganda. Shinners is trying to defend his reputation and to preserve his Christian Conerstone Bookstore and his charity Passion for Souls which provides the funds for his travels to Uganda. He has said that he is not a homophobe – he loves the sinner not the sin – and that he does not agree with the anti-gay Bill – etc. However he has not only failed to explain the specific wording of his speech in Uganda, but also his association with the homophobes who have pushed The Kill the Gays Bill, in his presence. Worse yet the homophobes who do support the Bill remain touted for excellence on Shinners’ website.
Here is the issue in a simple equation:-
Video showing Bishop David Kiganda + The Poster of Kiganda with Paul Shinners’ and on website = Shinners supports the Kill the Gays Bill!
Shinners advertized the Rally before going to Uganda in December 2012, on his Passion for the Souls Website. In the Poster advertisement on his website (see screen shot of Shinner’s website below.) Shinners’ picture appears together with a group of pastors including (at top left of poster) the picture of the host for the event, fervently anti-gay Bishop David Kiganda, one of the preachers featured in this Video below.
If anyone for one minute doubts Kiganda’s participation in wanting to kill gays, please watch this short video from beginning to end. In the video Kiganda delivers the message that if homosexuality is not dealt with, then Uganda can end up with two cities destroyed like Sodom and Gemorah. In the same video at the same event at min 2:28 – 2:55 is David Bahati, the Member of Uganda’s Parliament, who authored and introduced the Anti-homosexuality Bill, who is seen and heard saying:
“The Majority of members of parliament decided that the punishment that that person deserves for homosexuality is death. …. We love the sinners but we hate the sin.”
The scene then dissolved into a crazed prayer session, at min 6:31, where Bahati is seen on the ground while the group of Pastors, including Bishop Kiganda, pray for the delivery of Bahati to effect passage of his Kill the Gays Bill.
Wake up St. Neots and patrons of Cornerstone Cafe, this is who and what your preacher Paul Shinners is associating with in Uganda and this is who you support.
The Poster below is still up on Shinners’ website taken from the site itself taken 2/23/2013 at 10:20PM PST, two months after we asked Shinners to answer questions about his association in Uganda.
Although this is not the event where Shinners presented his speech in question, Shinners went to Uganda where he shared the stage with David Kiganda, his host, as advertized by him, and where he spoke of the ‘blessed plan for Uganda’ and there is absolutely no way he can deny knowing exactly who he was on the stage with and what it is preachers from Uganda were talking about.
Since I first published my article in early January (to understand the genesis and evolution of this story please see the links below) Shinners has done nothing about trying to call an end to the Kill the Gays Bill or even to disassociate himself from his host David Kiganda and the others he preached with in December 2012.
By way of example, this is tantamount to sharing a stage with Hitler and defending the appearance by saying one is not an anti-semite, by saying one does not agree with killing Jews. Imagine coming back from Germany to the United Kingdom from a pre-genocide Rally wit Hitler and being challenged on the association and then failing to answer specifics about the anti-semite denial as well as failing to disassociate and then having the audacity to retain the poster of Hitler on your website. With no attempt to engage the genocidal (pastors) thereafter? That is Paul Shinners’ position at this time! To Ugandan Gays Kiganda, Bahati, Ssempa etc. are the pre-genocidal maniacs.
Its time to come clean Paul Shinners. He knew exactly who these people were with whom he shared a stage. He cannot deny that by his mere appearance on that stage, by association, he is lying when he says he is not pro the Kill the Gays Bill.
The Kill the Gays Bill will be back on the Ugandan Parliament’s Order Papers next week, having sat at No 1 through 4 position during the course of last week.
