December 23rd, 2009

Thanks to an anonymous reader in Uganda, BTB has been able to obtain cell-phone video of a Ugandan news broadcast showing Tuesday’s anti-gay demonstration in Kampala by pastors Martin Ssempa, and David Kadaga in support of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill that is now before Parliament.

Martin SsempaThis clip begins with Seempa, Kadaga, and others entering the Parliament Building from a rally at Makerere University (Ssempa’s home turf). At one point in the clip, Ssempa is shown (either at Parliament or at the rally) saying “We also express support for our president Museveni, the minister of foreign affiars, the people of Uganda for stainding strong against this evil.” He later condemned the White House for its statement against measure which would provide the death penalty for LGBT people. Speaking on behalf of the National Task Force Against Homosexuality, Ssempa said:

They (the task force) have condemned the efforts of the American president, Barrack Obama, and Hilary Clinton, for using the pulpit of the white house to preach a gospel of sodomy. We have said No!

presented their support to the Anti-Homosexuality Bill to the deputy speaker of parliament, Honorable Rebecca Kadaga. Pastor Ssempa who has also been fronting the fight against homosexuality, commended government authorities for standing firm against the vice.

The task force also condemned the pressure and criticisms from the international community, saying that Uganda is an independent country, with laws that suit her people.

Ssempa, “…they have condemned the efforts of the American president, Barack Obama, and Hilary Clinton, for using the pulpit of the white house to preach a gospel of sodomy. We have said No!”

The deputy speaker of parliament Honorable Rebecca Kadaga also pledged support to the task force and encouraged them to fast-track enactment of the bill, “…a) who has carnal knowledge of any person against the order of nature, b) has carnal knowledge of an animal, or c) permits a male person to have carnal knowledge of him or her against the order of nature, commits an offence and is liable to imprisonment for life.”

Members of the parliament present at the petition, also condemned the homosexuality and pledged more support come next year, “…and to imagine that somebody can chose to be a homosexual, is a reflection of the highest failure of human instinct.”

“Homosexuality is a vice, and a taboo in our society…”

But 82 have illegalised homosexuality, 40 of these countries include Uganda and members of the Commonwealth community. The Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda has attracted attention at international and national levels. Some donor countries have also gone as far as threatening to cut aid if the bill is passed into law. Over 95% of Ugandans regard homosexuality as an abomination and are determined to see this vice trashed.
