The Ugandan Solution

It really is rather scary to start to hear Christianist ministers and so-called pro-Family groups call for the re-criminalization of homosexuality.  Damn.  If they get their way, no doubt they would soon after call for the Final Ugandan Solution.  Really, Folks, this shit has got to stop.

FMTT -- it seems like we're in some episode of Star Trek or Star Trek Next Gen where the Enterprise has encountered a planet that was contaminated with another culture's beliefs, except the native population perverts the rules or laws in some way and horrific things have happened.  Well, there is no Prime Directive being followed in many countries in Africa by those zany Christianist Crusaders Soldiers of the Cross.  Those bumfuzzled Christianist missionaries to the African Continent surely teach the same Christian religion that the Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, and Reorganized LDS folks taught me?  No?  Will someone please explain how any Christian can stand by while a fellow human being is executed just for being GAY?  What absolutist totalitarian values did Jesus teach?  Come on, I've read all those words in red and I don't remember any "kill the gays" commandment from Jesus Christ.

Where are the champions?  Where are the true servants of God's Children.  Since when did all the Christianist ministers become inquisitors, judges, and juries?  That's a helluva unholy trinity of corrupting power and personal aggrandizement.  Let's hear it, World Leaders, secular and sacred -- What are you going to do?

In my lifetime I have met many Scriptures that have touched my soul and called me to be better than I am.  I was taught that being a Priest or Elder, or any other minister in the Church, was a calling to be a Servant.  A servant of all God's Sons and Daughters.

These Scriptures are from the Doctrine and Covenants:

[Sec 150:7] These are portentous times. The lives of many are being sacrificed unnecessarily to the gods of war, greed, and avarice. The land is being desecrated by the thoughtless waste of vital resources. You must obey my commandments and be in the forefront of those who would mediate this needless destruction while there is yet day.

[Sec 151:9] You who are my disciples must be found continuing in the forefront of those organizations and movements which are recognizing the worth of persons and are committed to bringing the ministry of my Son to bear on their lives.

[Sec 151:10] Working together to this end will promote unity, resolve conflicts, relieve tensions between individuals, and heal the wounds which have been sapping the strength of the church, spiritually and materially. This you must do in the spirit of love and compassion as revealed in my Son during his journey in your midst.
