Gays and Lesbians

The entire world is now being controlled by freaks and despots. Upon all the "Holier than thou" the Western world claim to be and see Africans as people made by a lesser god, it is now apparent who that cap fits. They are trying to force Africans to accept this unholy practice which will never be part of our culture. The Ugandan president just signed into law that this practice will not be entertained or allowed in that country. As a result of that the IMF, Holland, Sweden and Denmark have all suspended loans and help to them unless the president rescinds his decision and embrace this madness.

It is clearly spelt out in the Bible about men who sleep with men and the vice-versa. (Leviticus 18:22 or Leviticus 20:13) In the USA most states are refusing to accept this gay and lesbian marriage on the grounds that each state has the right to define marriage in the traditions of its citizens. If a state has the right to do that then why can't an independent and sovereign country say that?. It seems to me that the rich always talks right and the poor has to listen. Why hasn't any country condemn some of the states in the USA on this issue? In short homosexuality is an import from the decadent west.

I salute Presidents Museveni of Uganda and Goodluck of Nigeria for standing tall among the African leaders and saying what is morally good and best for the African nation. The USA kill people who kill to show that killing is not good, yet not a single country has said anything about that or sanctioned them on that. There have been so many decisions the west have brought against Africans which we didn't complain because none of them cared a hoot about its implications. Margaret Thatcher imposed visa restrictions on some African countries because they boycotted the Commonwealth games in support of South Africans fighting against apartheid.

It has always been the tradition of Africans to marry more that one woman but the west frowns on this and many Africans have been in prison or deported for this. If the west would allow us to continue with our traditions in their respective countries maybe our leaders would take a second look at this lesbian and gay issue. Until that is done we would not allow them to force this bitter pill down our throats. Africans do not seek to impose our views on anybody and likewise we do not want anybody to impose their views on us. Homosexual is a lifestyle choice and has no connection to genes. It cannot be a matter for a man to behave like a woman and the vice-versa.

President Obama knows within himself that gays and lesbians are not right for any society but he is supporting it because of politics. He added his voice and condemned what is happening in Uganda that relations between the US and Uganda will be strained if that decision is not reversed. Obama must know that there should be mutual respect and the Independence of any country guarantees it to do that and there shouldn't be any pre-conditions from the west on this matter. We don't have to be subservient to any country being strong or rich.

Why wouldn't the west try to sell this gay and lesbian education to the Arabs?. They know there will be an instant reply from them with the envelope addressed to "Return to sender". Independent countries must be allowed to build their own future and there should be a hands off approach to third world laws by western countries that define LGBTI (Lesbians ,Gays, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) as criminals. The Republican party in the US in its 2012 party platform said the effectiveness of America's foreign aid has been limited by the cultural agenda of the Obama administration, attempting to impose on foreign countries, especially the people of Africa: the homosexual rights agenda.

The Christian Council and the Moslem Council in Ghana must fight tooth and nail to stop this asinine behaviour from obtaining a hold in our dear country. More than 35 countries in Africa oppose this gay and lesbian issue. Those that go with the west like S/Africa, Togo, Benin, Cote D'ivoire, Guinea, Lesotho, Namibia and Mozambique, I say safe journey but those who oppose it I say bravo for it is better to die standing on your feet and fighting for your rights than to die kneeling and begging for your rights from some faggots.
