HE.Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has thanked the Church of Uganda for standing against the Church of England on matters concerning the acceptance of homosexuality/LGBTQ.
Museveni in his speech during the commemoration of the Late Archbishop Janani Luwum in Mucwini, Kitgum District, he said Europeans have tried all possible to export their rotten acts into Africa but vowed that they [Africans] will not give space to homosexuality.
”I thank Ugandan believers for rejecting homosexuality. The Europeans don’t listen, they don’t listen to other people’s views.They want to turn abnormal into normal and force it on others. We are not going to follow people who are lost,” said Museveni.
Museveni’s remarks follow those made by the Uganda Anglican Archbishop, Samuel Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu who warned last week that Church of Uganda was more than ready to cut ties with the Church of England if they continue advocating for homosexuality.
Kaziimba’s anger was ignited by the General Synod of the Church of England (their top governing body) meeting on Thursday where they passed several resolutions among them including allowing clergy to preside at blessings of same-sex Unions and have approved supplemental prayers and liturgies for such occasions.
“First, 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 – 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,” Kazimba preaches.
Kaziimba alerted the children of God that although the Church of England, together with the Episcopal Church in America, the Anglican Church of Canada, the Church in Wales, the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, and other provinces have walked away from the true doctrine of the bible, Church of Uganda will remain on the core doctrine of the Bible even if it remains alone in Anglican Communion.
