Shame the followers of Catholocism never make the hierarchy responsible for the acts and edicts in their names. But in doing nothing they show themselves to be as guilty as the leaders of their foul religion.
Catholic Bishops in Uganda have called for the revival of the horrifying ‘Kill the Gays bill,’ an anti-homosexual legislative proposal for the life-imprisonment or execution of homosexuals. The controversial bill has been around since 2009, it has been vilified by most of the world, including President Obama and the Vatican itself lobbied against it. The Catholic Church had been the lone religious group in Uganda opposing the bill.
But now, the Bishops called for its revival due to, ‘an attack on the Bible and the institution of marriage,’ This represents a serious rift somewhere in the Catholic Church hierarchy, if they’re acting in defiance of the pope, who Catholics believe to be God’s voice on earth.
This repulsive piece of legislature cannot be written off by Americans as some sort of ‘backwards, third-world savagery.’ The Ugandan President’s wife, Janet Museveni who is believed to be a driving force behind this bill, has close ties to American Evangelical dominionist groups. She is also said to be the President’s preferred successor, in 2016.
This man has been free for years and killed many Men, Women and Children, but granted, most were Muslim. But where is the viral cool video calling for his arrest and trial? Let us say this is it…..
The Kucinich/Wexler impeachment resolution contained 35 articles covering the Iraq war, the Valerie Plame affair, creating a case for war with Iran, capture and treatment of prisoners of war, spying and or wiretapping inside the United States, use of signing statements, failing to Comply with Congressional Subpoenas, the 2004 elections, medicare, Hurricane Katrina, global warming, and 9/11.
The 2003 invasion of Iraq was the most substantial portion of the articles of impeachment introduced by Kucinich and Wexler. 15 of the 35 articles directly relate to alleged misconduct by Bush in seeking authority for the war, and in the conduct of military action itself. Five other articles address allegations partially or tertiarily relating to the war, including the “outing” of Valerie Plame, treatment of prisoners (both in Iraq and from operations in Afghanistan and other countries), and building a case for Iran being a threat based in part on alleging Iranian actions in Iraq.
WELL, HIS HUSBAND ANTONIO IS, ANYWAY. HE IS KINDA GOOFY.
The race is on for the presidency in the small nordic country of Finland. The second run-off will take place soon between two candidates, and one of them is openly gay and has been in a registered partnership for 10 years. His name is Pekka Haavisto and he is the country’s former environmental minister, representing the Green Party.
His opponent is Sauli Niinisto, a former finance minster for Finland. Both Haavisto and Niinisto believe in pro-European policies, something that is new to political races for Finland compared to the last few years. Niinisto told the press, “pro-Europe policies and supporting the euro have received strong support from the people.”
Early popularity polls aren’t showing a large amount of favor for Haavisto however and many think it may be due to the fact that he’s openly gay. Political analyst Olavi Borg says Haavisto has little chance to beat Niinisto in a runoff stating that some will have a hard time backing an openly gay candidate. “Middle-aged and older people especially will not vote for Haavisto,” Borg said.
