Rev. Dr. Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu, Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Expresses Strong Support For President Yoweri Museveni and the Government’s Anti-Homosexuality Act Law 2023.
Daniel Whyte III, President of Gospel Light Society International, Says Congratulations to the Rev. Dr. Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu, Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, President Yoweri Museveni, President of Uganda, the Wise Government Officials, and the People of Uganda Who Have Stood up For God, Jesus Christ, and the Word of God. Whyte Says he is Praying for America, Great Britain, and the West to Follow the Good Example of the Church of Uganda, the President and the Parliament of Uganda, and the Ugandan People or The Churches and Countries of the West Will Continue to Burn and be Destroyed Like Sodom and Gomorrah.
The Church of Uganda has released a statement regarding their country’s recent legislation banning homosexuality and imposing severe sentences on those who promote and engage in it, including capital punishment for men who rape children and the disabled. The new legislation is some of the harshest in the world, and Rev. Dr. Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu, Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, shares these thoughts on it.
The Church of Uganda is one of the most conservative branches of the Anglican Church. It has been a burr in the side of the impish and effete Archbishop of Canterbury, who earlier led the historic denomination to affirm and support homosexuality. The Church of Uganda, along with other African nations, has been vocal in its objection to the slow spread of rainbow-hued compromise across the denomination, promising they will secede from the denomination for its acts of theological treason against Christ. While the Archbishop of Canterbury has repeatedly condemned all legislation to make homosexuality illegal, this statement by Mugalu is undoubtedly the better half of a one-two punch.
“The Church of Uganda welcomes the diligent work of Parliament and His Excellency, the President, in crafting the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023.
“We’re grateful the current Act affirms the merits of the existing provisions in the current penal code. We are also grateful that the Act builds on existing laws by offering greater protection of children through strong anti-grooming measures, strong restrictions on promotion, and protection of children by not allowing those convicted under the act to be employed in organizations that work directly with children. We also appreciate that the Act protects people from false allegations.
“As expressed in our responses to earlier versions of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill over the last fifteen years, the Church of Uganda supports life and, in principle, does not support the death penalty. As grievous as aggravated defilement and aggravated homosexuality are, we do not support the death penalty for those crimes, and continue to recommend life imprisonment instead.
“I also want to remind you of a few things I shared in my Easter message in April. Homosexuality is currently a challenge in Uganda because it is being forced on us by outside, foreign actors against our will, against our culture, and against our religious beliefs. They disguise themselves as “human rights activists,” but are corrupting real human rights by adding LGBTQ to their agenda.
