Missionaries of Hate

After I got home from a long day of shopping, paying bills, buying groceries, and a few other miscellaneous errands, I was dog tired and craving a nap like you wouldn't believe. YES, I am a young man, but because of my illness (Sickle Cell), my energy and endurance levels decreases exponentially as my age progresses. I'm telling you this because I know someone would read the part about errands and paying bills made me dog tired, and they would probably think, damn, this guy is seriously out of shape (lol). So don't get it twisted, I keep things tight and the full six pack is still in effect. I could never disappoint my haters and let them down like that. I've always given them plenty to hate on, so why stop now (lol).

I chose to start this particular blog post off in a light-hearted and humorous way because what I'm about to share with you is anything but. In fact it's down-right disgusting. I could write a list of every negative and horrible adjective I could think of, and still not do it justice. Ok, so after I got home, I put away the groceries and cataloged my bill payment receipts and headed straight to bed for a 2 or 3 hour "power nap" because I told my friend Tamika that I would return to Washington and spend the night watching movies with her at her new apartment (which she has beautifully decorated, and I'm soooo jealous of her bedroom suit lol). So I lay down to start my nap, and of course I can't fall asleep (I hate when that happens). So I got on my laptop and searched the web for a good movie or tv episode to watch. I ended up finding a documentary about the "kill the gays" bill in Uganda. If you're not familiar with this disturbing story, then let me give you a super condensed synopsis: The African country of Uganda joined up with some very prominent AMERICAN Evangelicals (à la Pastor Rick Warren) to draft a piece of legislation in Uganda that would make being homosexual a crime punishable by either life in prison or DEATH. Yes, you heard me right... DEATH! In other words, if I lived in Uganda, and I were in a same sex relationship with a man that I loved, both of us would be arrested and sentenced to DEATH... Can you imagine getting arrested for being in love? And these evil people that claim to be "Christian", are all doing this in the name of God. These American evangelicals have created a huge campaign with millions of dollars at their disposal to fight those that are gay and rob them of their basic civil rights, and impose their beliefs on everyone. There are so many problems and ills that plague our society, like hunger, famine, disease, homelessness, poor education, etc, and instead of using their power and recourses to combat some of those issues, they choose to fight the gay community in order to strip them of their rights. This makes no sense at all. What is "Christian" about that? I really didn't intend to write all this and shout from my soapbox, but things like this really angers me. The real point of this blog post was to get you to watch this 40 minute documentary about Uganda's "kill the gays" bill, and how American Evangelicals played a huge role in the creation of the bill. I'm warning you now that this video is very inflammatory, and so ridiculous at times that you just want to laugh from frustration. The most absurd part of it is when the church pastor shows his congregation gay porn during one of his sermons condemning gays. Yep, I kid you not... gay porn on display right in front of the whole congregation, kids included. Just watch it, and let me know what you think. Evil comes in many forms, and in this particular documentary, the evil is in the pulpit preaching hate.
