US LGBTs Silent while London and Amsterdam respond to Uganda Call To Action

By Cathy Kristofferson, January 16, 2014

onplogoA demonstration against Uganda’s so-called Anti-Homosexuality Bill (AHB), better known as the Kill-The-Gays Bill, has been called for this Saturday in Amsterdam by Out & Proud Diamond Group.

Out & Proud Diamond Group was founded by African LGBTI and Human Rights activists fighting for equality for all.

onplondon3Last week the group organized a similar protest in London at the Uganda High Commission’s Uganda House on Trafalgar Square.

The Ugandan AHB is currently in President Museveni’s hands. His 30 days to either assent or return, though, are winding down. In reality Museveni alone is powerless to stop the Bill from becoming law though one imagines he would convince the Ugandan Parliament that it is not in the country’s best interest to put such a draconian odious law on the books.

International pressure must be applied if any hope of that Bill, illegally passed and already declared in violation of the Ugandan Constitution, NOT becoming law.

Where are the protests in the United States? Where is HRC and The Task Force calling on their many members to take to the streets, the Embassies, the Consulates, to show their outrage? Wonder what HRC is doing with that $3 million dollars Paul Singer gave them for international LGBT work?

Part of the Call To Action from Ugandans was:

  • Organize peaceful demonstrations at respective Uganda embassies in your country calling for Uganda to respect international human rights instruments and agreements that it has signed by doing away with the criminalization of LGBT people.

So, where are the United States actions?

The Facebook event for this coming Saturday in Amsterdam is here.

      From a fb friend. Won’t leave name: ‘ If US gays were treated like this, they would be motivated to protest too. I feel that a lot of gays n transgendered people are blind to the obstacles that are in their face or they pretend that its no big deal to be gay or transgendered in the US, when in reality its a struggle everyday. We have to erase the naiveness within our community first b4 we can fight anything.’

        The US gays are spoiled bc of the relative ease and freedom when compared to other countries.

        As soon as something like this happens there better be some action.

    Jesus said ppl are born gay (Matt. 19:12). The Bible has been changed to forbid homosexuality. Read the Aramaic Bible. Jonathan is called the beloved of King David. The Hebrew word qedeshim means “male prostitutes &/or pagan ministers” not “sodomites.” Lev. 18:22 should read: “you shall not lie with a male on the bedding (or bed) of a woman (or wife), it is an abhorrence. ” The NT was originally written in Aramaic. The Greek NT is a translation. At 1 Cor. 6:11, it reads that the “corrupt” & “those who rape men” wont inherit the kingdom of God. It says nothing about homosexuals. Romans chapter 1 is about idolatry & heterosexuals being brainwashed to LEAVE the opposite gender & have UNNATURAL sex with the same gender. It was against their NATURE or INSTINCT. Those upper case words arent reflective of homosexuals. Being gay is according to homosexuals INSTINCT & they dont LEAVE the opposite gender.
