Pope Dismisses Homosexual Appeals for Africa Trip

Once again, the liberal western media came away disappointed from Pope Francis' trip to several African nations after he ignored the din of their appeals to condemn Ugandans' rejection of the Gay Agenda and condemnation of homosexual behavior.

Alas, the media cried as their first "gay pope" dashed their sexual revolutionary hopes.
"I see this particular pope as more progressive but I wouldn't call him an ally like Obama."
-- Frank Mugisha, Ugandan homosexualist

-- From "Uganda's Gay Community Has High Hopes For Pope Francis's Visit" by Rodney Muhumuza, Associated Press 11/23/15

. . . In Uganda, where homosexuality is illegal and where attacks against gays have forced many to seek refuge abroad or lead secret lives at home, gay leaders nevertheless hope Francis when he comes on Friday will weigh in with a firm message of tolerance.

Simon Lokodo, a Ugandan ethics minister who publicly condemns homosexuals, said any statement on tolerance for homosexuals would be unpalatable to most Ugandans.

At a recent Vatican meeting on family issues, African cardinals were at the forefront in blocking the church's overtures to gays and in insisting that the Catholic Church as a whole denounce this "ideological colonization," saying wealthy countries have no right to impose their ideas on poor countries with different cultural views.

Stronger anti-gay legislation [in Uganda] was supported by local church leaders who said it was necessary to protect poor African children from Western homosexuals who lure them with money.

From "Pope Francis visits Ugandan shrine amid gay rights debate" by Philip Pullella and Edith Honan, Reuters 11/28/15

Pope Francis traveled to Uganda's holiest shrine on Saturday, paying tribute to 19th century Christian martyrs killed for their faith, including for protecting young boys in the royal court from [homosexual] abuse by the king.

Twenty-five Anglicans and 22 Catholic converts where killed during the persecutions, mostly by being burned to death, between 1884 and 1887 on the orders of King Buganda Mwanga II.

The most famous of the Catholic converts was Charles Lwanga, a prefect in the royal court who was in charge of the boy pages and was killed because he tried to protect the children from the sexual advances of the king.

"They did this in dangerous times," the pope said during a Mass celebrated from a concrete island on an artificial lake on the shrine complex outside the capital Kampala.

From "Ugandan Catholics not troubled by papal restraint on gay rights" by Inés San Martín, Vatican correspondent, Crux (Boston Globe Media) 11/28/15

The story of the 45 [19th century] martyrs is relevant to tensions over gay and lesbian rights in several African nations, including Uganda, because according to one version of the story, these young Christian men were executed after spurning the advances of a traditional king.

What’s beyond dispute is that between 1885 and 1887, on the orders of King Mwanga II, 22 young Catholics and 23 Anglicans were killed after being ruthlessly tortured. Some were burned alive, while others were ripped apart with a spear, savaged by feral dogs, or viciously dismembered.

At a press conference in Kampala on Friday, the relationship between the martyrs’ legacy and the current situation vis-à-vis gays and lesbians was addressed by local organizers of the papal trip.

Instead of any reference to gay rights, Francis used Saturday’s homily to praise the martyrs for their willingness to pass on the faith in times of difficulty.

From "Ugandans Bid Pope Emotional Farewell" by Edgar R. Batte and Paul Tajuba, AllAfrica 11/30/15

The Pope was leaving after a three-day official maiden visit to Uganda on his trip to Africa. His visit started in Kenya, where he was for three days, and will end in Central African Republic (CAR) where he will be for another two days.

But how did the Western media cover Pope Francis' visit to Uganda?

CNN seemed to focus on the gay issue and one of their stories was: Pope faces challenge in Uganda, where gays are under attack [see excerpt below], a headline that left many Ugandans wondering why the channel trivialised what many called a historic visit.

Other media seemed to pick up on that line with The Guardian of UK saying: Pope Francis passes up chance to condemn Uganda's anti-gays, and The Independent of UK writing: Persecuted Ugandan gays call for help from Pope Francis on visit.

From "Pope faces challenge in Uganda, where gays are under attack" by David McKenzie and Brent Swails, CNN 11/27/15

"[Pope Francis'] stand is simply hypocritical. He must take a stand as a leader. I don't believe in being lukewarm," says Pastor Solomon Male. "You tell the people that this is the truth, this is the way. Homosexuality is dangerous."

Ugandan [homosexual] rights groups watched in horror as a version of the anti-gay bill was passed in parliament in late 2013. And despite intense pressure from the international community, President Yoweri Museveni signed the bill into law in February of the following year.

Shortly afterward, Museveni told CNN that homosexuality is "unnatural" and not a human right.

"They're disgusting. What sort of people are they?" he said. "I never knew what they were doing. I've been told recently that what they do is terrible. Disgusting. But I was ready to ignore that if there was proof that that's how [a man] is born, abnormal. But now the proof is not there."

In the end the law was thrown out on a technicality by the constitutional court -- a move many see as an effort by the President to avoid donor withdrawals while saving face domestically.

But the main sponsor of the bill, MP David Bahati, said lawmakers are planning to bring it back to parliament in a new form.
