Uganda Parliament To Adjourn Until February

Pope Benedict XVI and Speaker Rebecca Kadaga (via the Uganda Parliament web site.)

The Second Meeting of the Second Session of the Ninth Parliament is expected to Adjourn today without bringing the Anti-Homosexuality Bill up for debate. According to Warren Throckmorton, who spoke with a Parliament spokeswoman, Parliament will begin its Christmas break after today’s sitting and will return on February 4. There had been some speculation that Parliament may extend is session through next week, but with Speaker Rebecca Kadaga off galavanting in Italy meeting the Pope and attending a human rights conference — I kid you not — it looks like the prevailing opinion is that the earlier they can start their Christmas break, the better.

Which is just as well, because if today’s Order Paper is any indication (DOC: 41KB/2 pages), Parliament’s eagerness to take up the Anti-Homosexuality Bill appears to be waning. It has now fallen to number seven under “Notice of Business to Follow,” following some fairly mundane committee reports, after having held the top spot just two weeks ago.

Surprise, a man who was a member of the Hitler Youth gives his blessing to a national leader that proposed another final solution.

You’d think that a man with Ratzinger’s political history would have learned something about the evil of demonizing others. And yet, almost routinely, he proves that his association with Naziism taught him nothing at all about naming devils.

He says that he “resisted” Naziism as a youth, and I do believe that he did. I just don’t believe that his reasons then were the reasons he’d have me believe today–because if they were his true reasons, he’d be a very different Pope than he is, and he wouldn’t be holding hands with that woman.

I don’t expect a 14- and 16-year-old boy to KNOW much about the poisons that his elders believe, and I can forgive that. But when that boy has had 70 years (!) to absorb and reflect on what those poisons will do to others, and yet he behaves as if he’d never looked seriously at the lessons, I can’t forgive that. Especially when I’m among his demons.
