Ugandan president repents of personal, national sins 'We confess idolatry, witchcraft, political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue'
"The Ugandan newssite New Vision reports President Yoweri Museveni celebrated Ugandas 50th anniversary of independence from Britain at the National Jubilee Prayers event by publicly repenting of his personal sin and the sins of the nation.
I stand here today to close the evil past, and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness, Museveni prayed.
We confess these sins, which have greatly hampered our national cohesion and delayed our political, social and economic transformation. We confess sins of idolatry and witchcraft which are rampant in our land. We confess sins of shedding innocent blood, sins of political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue and betrayal, Museveni said."

The anti-gay bill includes many related offenses, such as renting or doing business with anyone gay, all kind of ambiguous descriptions of touching someone that have made a lot of Ugandans very fearful.
In short under this bill anyone could be arrested for many things. People are required under threat of imprisonment to report their friends or family members. Nothing Christlike about this behavior, nope.
It reminds me of other times in other places where it began with one group for one reason and soon moved on...evil is like that.
What’s the water like? How is public health situation, generally?
A far cry from the Uganda of Idi Admin Dada’s days !
Not for long. Watch closely...
I was watching CNN the other day and it pissed me off they were Using Uganda as an example of “Christianities Intolerance towards gays” Completely ignoring the other 99% of countries that are Muslim and who kill Homosexuals!!!
Just so they could count coup against on Christianity!!!!!
So mad i almost punched the TV.
There is no such thing as 'being gay'....there is only the physical act of sex which can be referred to as homosexual sex if it is engaged in by two members of the same sex. For that matter, there is also no such thing that can be proven to be homosexuality as identified as pertaining to some sort of natural condition or state of the human mind...there is only human sexuality which is a characteristic that all mankind has been given.... however, sexuality can manifest itself as Godly approved sexual behaviour or perverted sexual behaviour abhored by God.
It sounds like an overreaction to the gay craze in the rest of the world, which they don’t want worming its way into their society. I can’t blame the end even if the means can be blamed. And it’s sadly not uncommon for highly Christianized societies to get most of the gospel right but then really muff it badly in some small area. Troubles that come from over-mixing the church with the government are nothing new, of course....
Well at best, they have yet another repentance coming. I only hope in abandoning the insane aspects of the witch hunt, it doesn’t literally capitulate to the rest of the world’s gay craze.
Her visits were several years ago and the water wasn’t good, but that may have changed. They grow most of their own food and raise animals for food. I remember I wrote to several seed companies asking for donations of seeds for them to bring. The only company that responded was Burpee and they sent us a lot. They now grow eggplant in the village, something they had never seen before. They even included flower seeds. It was very nice of them. No responses from several other companies.
My daughter also brought home some very nice wood carvings people had done. If Uganda can get an honest government, they have a bright future. My daughter told me there is a lot of local corruption - pay officials to get permits, etc. Kind of like Chicago, I guess. Hopefully that will improve.
I looked at some websites for a few seminaries in the country. Much work being done, but...much work to be done, also. Thanks for that info.
You are welcome. I have a special place in my heart for Uganda.
“Killing them for being gay doesn’t work for me, and I am pretty sure Christ would be unhappy about it as well.”
If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
However, there is forgiveness after repentance and rejection of homosexuality.
Or either of Milton Obote’s regimes!
Good luck with scraping through Leviticus. You may want to read it entirely.
Ever wear clothes made of more than one fabric?
The above from 2006. Not related to the disgusting evil of persecution and more they are currently promoting.
In fact, once all medical aid and care is denied to those with HIV, no matter what their sexual preference, they will be afraid to seek help - and now that Uganda has thrown out many of the NGOs considered to have been partly responsible for this success - HIV will increase.
It's just evil and prelest, by the father of all evil and old as time. They can try to pass it off as Christianity but I am amazed anyone believes it.
“Because of this, God gave them over...”
There are many immoral acts. Let God judge them. Our mission is to love sinners, not persecute them.
