By Our Parliament Reporter
Parliament Presided over by Speaker Anita Amongi has granted leave Hon.Asuman Basalirwa MP Bugiri Municipality to present a Private Members Bill entitled the Anti Homosexuality Bill 2023 to eliminate acts of homosexuality once and for all.
Speaker Among asked members of parliament to stand up to be counted in the fight against homos who are throwing around big money to lure the young people into their illegal activities locally called ebisiyaga.
She was bitter that foreign agents were bribing innocent Ugandans to promote , recruit people especially in schools and institutions of higher learning to engage in the abhorrent acts of homosexuality . Speaker Among told MPs that Uganda doesn’t need money from the promoters of gays to survive .
” We dont need their money to compromise and go against our cultures and family values , “a tough talking Among stated with the support of many MPs. Homosexuality is already a criminal offence under our Penal Code .
This will be the second time for Parliament to pass a law against homos in a space of two years . In 2021, Parliament passed the sexual offences bill which further criminalised same-sex relationships and sex work. The reiterated sections of legislation first enforced in Uganda – a largely African conservative country by British colonial rule. They condemn same-sex couples who perform acts deemed against the “order of nature” to 10 years’ imprisonment. The law was a nulled on a technicality -that it was passed without quorum.
The Church of Uganda has moved swiftly to terminate its relationship with Canterbury, the seat of the Anglican Church worldwide after it allowed homosexuals to marry .
“From the first page of the Bible in the book of Genesis to the last page of the Bible in the book of Revelation, it is clear that God’s design for human flourishing is that we are part of a family that is defined as one man and one woman united in holy matrimony for life and, God willing, a union that produces children.
God’s Word has said that the only context for sexual relationships is in the context of a marriage of one man and one woman. Same sex relationship is a sin. The Church of England has sinned,” Archbishop Dr.Stephen Kaziimba –the head of the Anglican church in Uganda stated .
The general synod of the church of England which is the top governing body of Anglicans surprised the world when it sat and passed several resolutions among others allowing the clergy to preside over marriages involving homosexuals something that is deemed a taboo in the African culture .Gays are already considered married by the British government.
The Kampala Parents Association has already petition the Ministry of education and authorities in Kampala to address the penetration of homosexual activists in schools and even printing textbooks they are now circulating in schools.
