American Family Association Leader Praises Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Law

Post image for American Family Association Leader Praises Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Law


Bryan Fischer, the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, Sunday came out in favor of Uganda‘s anti-homosexuality law. Via Twitter, Fischer praised Uganda, falsely suggesting Uganda had just made homosexuality illegal. In fact, homosexuality has been illegal since British 19th century colonial rule. It’s rather embarrassing for Fischer to be unaware of the state of Uganda’s anti-homosexuality law.

“Homosexuality now against the law in Uganda, just as it was for 200 years in the US. It can be done,” Fischer wrote.

The article Fischer linked to, a World Net Daily piece, focuses on another anti-gay hate group leader, Scott Lively, whom many credit with getting Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” bill drafted and into Uganda’s lawmakers’ hands.

“Britain was at its height as a world power when it honored God as the Ugandan president has just done. America’s greatness has similarly diminished as we have shifted from a Christian to a secular-humanist country. But watch now for Uganda to be blessed by God for their desire to be His,” Lively said.

Lively added that Museveni is definitely drawing a contrast between Uganda and the West.

“This incident is also important as a contrast to the picture being painted of Uganda by the godless left of a backwards, violent and savage culture intent on murdering homosexuals,” Lively said.

“On the contrary, Museveni is calmly and confidently setting the course of his nation by the guidance of the Bible, in a way that also shows great courage and resolve,” Lively said.

Fischer, apparently, then invited Lively onto his radio show.

Uganda’s infamous Kill The Gays bill, which Fischer did not seem to take a stand on either way, this week was successfully voted out of committee, meaning it passed the committee vote and will be voted upon by the complete parliament, although a date has not been publicized.

And despite media reports to the contrary, it is doubtful the death penalty from the Kill The Gays bill has been permanently removed.

Then there was this:

Stay tuned. We’ll have more later.

In 1778, Thomas Jefferson wrote a law in Virginia which contained a punishment of castration for men who engage in sodomy, however, what was intended by Jefferson as a liberalization of the sodomy laws in Virginia at that time was rejected by the Virginia Legislature, which continued to prescribe death as the maximum penalty for the crime of sodomy in that sta

If Lively and Fischer think Uganda is so "blessed", why don't they go live there??? [We'll trade them for Ugandan LGBTs in peril]

Lively Fischer won't ever leave the United States for a country that wants to exterminate Gay human beings because Lively Fischer are "doing God's work" in this heathen, pagan, communist land where Gay Americans are finally beginning to be recognized as just as American and just as patriotic and many just as "Christian" as any other Americans. This is why Lively Fischer has turned up the volume on calling Gay Americans "godless," evil, and workers of iniquity. "Islam, abortion, and homosexuality are evil, to be defeated." Well, too bad, Lively Fischer, most Americans don't agree. . . .

CastleRockBear November 26, 2012 at 9:47 am

When will the world turn on such HATE!?!?! Brian Fischer is nothing more than a HATE MONGER standing behind GOD! HE IS NOT a Christian as much as he is no different than a NAZI! KARMA needs to have it's way with this man! NO peace can come to this world with people like him, in it!

ugandan December 8, 2012 at 2:28 pm

FYI THE WORD CHRISTIAN COMES FROM BEING CHRIST-LIKE!!! YOUR ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION BUT NOT YOUR FACTS,… THE BIBLE IS IN FULL SUPPORT OF HIS ACTIONS.. KILLING TE GAYS IS WRONG , BUT SO IS HOMOSEXUALITY TO START WITH!!!
Leviticus 20:13, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

CastleRockBear December 9, 2012 at 12:55 am

Your only reasoning is to start spouting more BS? FYI you are NOT READING THE WHOLE BIBLE if this is all you know about God's children…Leviticus is an excuse and if you read it in it's entirety and understand what it says, you are jumping to the WRONG conclusions. FYI Homosexuality is no more wrong than having blue eyes in the eyes of GOD, but passing judgment is the sin that GOD WARNS about more than anything else…put that in your BIBLE and smoke it…and GET EDUCATED!

ugandan December 9, 2012 at 3:34 am

ask yourself , if u were to die today, would you be proud to have supported homosexuality,… to have been a part to the death of marriage, to have succumbed to the pressures around you? the bill offers imprisonment foe anyone who recruits a person into the act or spreads a disease intentionally to a victim, get your fats right, we are not against gays , they can continue in their misguided nature, let them just keep our children in schools out of it!!

CastleRockBear December 9, 2012 at 5:25 pm

I can WHOLE HEARTILY SAY if I were to die today that I supported love, I have been a part of making marriage GREATER, NO PRESSURE but I love who I am, and I love my partner enough to want to marry him, unlike so-called straight marriages which end in divorce >50% of the time, I hope for and will have a lifetime of love! This is who I am, this is who I love and no one, not even you, can tell me it's wrong….IT is NOT misguided nature to do with what you were born with…that Statement by you shows how much you hate!! you are going to be the loser in God's eyes, NOT ME…MISGUIDED SOUL!

These "evangelicals" are more of a threat to us, they are godless monsters.

ugandan December 8, 2012 at 2:30 pm

PLEASE READ YOUR BIBLE CAREFULLY BEFORE TAGGING PEOPLE THREATS ..
1Leviticus 18:22, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
2: Genesis 19 God destroyed Soddom and Gommorah because they had ignored his commands and engaged in homosexuality
1 Kings 14:24, “And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.”
Isaiah 3:9, “The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.”
Leviticus 20:13, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
Jude 7, “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

Thank you. You just have proven my point, of how anti Christ they are, that is monsters of hell. Take a few quotes from the bible, totally out of context, and justify hatred. That is what these monsters who call themselves "Christians" do.

Please do read the bible, preferably the original texts. Then you will also see, people who support this Ugandan move of devlish hatred, have nothing at all to do with what Jesus taught.

And if you do seriously research the bible, not only translations, you will find Jesus appreciated all people as they are created.

Thus, I will continue to tag these Evangelicals as threats, for that is what they are: Renouncing the word of Jesus and spreading ungodly hatred. And these disgusting threats need to be stopped.

CastleRockBear December 9, 2012 at 12:58 am

PLEASE READ THE BIBLE IN IT's ENTIRETY and QUIT JUDGING people you know NOTHING ABOUT…..Thou shall not judge lest you be judged!! READ before you spout hate! UNDERSTAND before you say such shameful things!! GOD is WATCHING YOU! and so are we!

CastleRockBear December 9, 2012 at 1:00 am

you have shown us your stupidity, EDUCATE YOURSELF and show us the truth! Most of what you have said was not even in the language at the time it was written but was interpreted to say what the people of the time wanted it to say…EDUCATE YOURSELF…the TRUTH shall set you free of your demons!

ugandan December 9, 2012 at 3:37 am

please before you shame yourself with such unbecoming insults, learn the difference between judging someone and using the bible to judge someone, me and you had a conversation one of us judged the other, the other used the bible to judge the other

CastleRockBear December 9, 2012 at 5:30 pm

You or ANYONE ELSE has no right to judge via the Bible or anything else…it's God's job, not yours!! By doing so, you are committing the GREATEST of all sins…PLAYING GOD!…I'm not judging you, but I will point out your hate and ask God to stop the hate in your heart because it is wrong! To preach like you do is WRONG and I know, God knows it! PREACH LOVE INSTEAD OF INSULTING HATE!

ugandan December 9, 2012 at 3:42 am

here we have a saying.." you can never know you are dreaming until someone wakes you up" i may be the person waking you up
LIKE I SAID EARLIER KILLING THE GAYS FOR RECRUITING OUR CHILDREN INTO IT IS WRONG,.. BUT SO ARE THEIR ACTIONS TO START WITH.. MOREOVER AFTER USING YOU , THEY LEAVE YOU TO SUFFER THE BURDEN OF TREATING YOUR RUPTURED ANUS ALONE

neuernutzer December 9, 2012 at 9:54 am

Ugandan, I wish you some insight of what Jesus taught. Not what your society and some run along evangelicals make you beleive. i feel sorry for you. May God give you some insight.

ugandan December 9, 2012 at 12:52 pm

how sure are you its not what some random evangelical taught you that was wrong,. what gives the benefit of the doubt to question my beliefs?? Jesus taught man to love his wife as he loved the church, turned a prostitute into a decent woman, said that one has to be born again and leave his worldly ways to enter the kingdom of heaven, so which Jesus are you talking about?

neuernutzer December 9, 2012 at 12:59 pm

May I ask you the same? So far you only posted not fully correct translations as basis for your belief of hatred. But you are surely aware, that these should a) be looked at more closely, and b) not randomly taken out of context to see the deeper meaning. Again, very sorry for you.

ugandan December 15, 2012 at 2:14 pm

that only shows you use google,.. please get a synonym for hypocrite and use it as your user name,.. one word can have a thousand meanings,… you just have to ask yourself if paul was a fool to have preached against sodomy and quoted the same script/…… oh and food for thought,.. google deleted most of the search results about the bible against sodomy,.. if you want to know the truth you will have to read the bible yourself or try a bible search engine

CastleRockBear December 9, 2012 at 5:35 pm

you have been taught so many fallacies that you do not know the truth!

CastleRockBear December 9, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Jesus taught to love everyone and God said no one shall judge others…you have taken on both as if it was your job…that is where you will find your insanity! And then you end it with a lie that someone told you will happen, it never has and never will, no more than vaginal sex will rupture your vagina…GET OVER YOURSELF and do what Jesus Christ has said…then you will stop passing judgment on others …educate yourself and you won't make foolish assumptions….pray for HELP!

CastleRockBear December 9, 2012 at 5:38 pm

Neither I nor my partner have EVER engaged in "Recruiting of children" that is another lie you have been told…but the facts say that children are more than likely, if abused sexually, by a family member who calls themselves straight…ASK THE CATHOLIC CHURCH about that one! You are in denial of truth for your own selfish thoughts! WAKE UP, you are going to lose with your hate! and no one is going to save you from that

ugandan December 15, 2012 at 2:47 pm

dont worry i know what am dealing with,.. some average guy speaking out his mind hopping someone he knows will get impressed,.. well listen and listen good because one word to the wise is enough and i dont repeat anything i say
1. stop using google,.. get a bible search engine or read the bible itself!!!]
2. stop calling me names,… i still have alittle respect left in me for you and you may start a flame you cant extinguish
3. i know its illegal to appear incite hate in whatever country you come from so you have been your conscience has been seared to operate under fear… thats wrong

Romans 2:15
They show that the work of the law is ywritten on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them
you can also read 1st tim 4;2,.. Paul is talking to you

please note: i am not here to win souls … no i did my part in trying to make you see the light,.. i canTt single-handedly fight against a biased google, and an admin with a sense of humour,.. i just came to tell you, Uganda is the victim here, now you know what both sides of the coin look like, when you make a choice, you become fully accountable,.. killing the gays is wrong, but if it will stop the destruction of anuses of under age and mature men just to provoke our country , so be it. every single day on the radio and news we see children who were defiled by gay men and now ooze faeces hourly, putting on nappies,.. PLEASE IF YOU ARE GOING TO SPEAK OUT, KNOW WHAT THE FACTS ARE!!! AM NOT ASKING YOU TO SUPPORT THE BILL , I KNOW ITS ALITTLE TOO HARSH,.. BUT THE DEATH PENALTY IS FOR EXTREME CASES AND THE BILL IS ONLY INTENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO HAD FORCED SEX, AN STD TRANSMITTED OR SPREAD THE PRACTICE,.. THE OTHERS CAN CONTINUE IN THEIR SIN, ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE THEM!! CALL SOMEONE WHO IS UNBIASED AND GET THE FACTS!! COUNTRY CODE 256 #AMout

ugandan December 15, 2012 at 2:10 pm

point out my hate, my being a misguided soul, my being uneducated etc etc ,.. i like that, so Jesus, all the prophets and apostles, pastors, crusaders that lead people to Christ by quoting the bible then showing them the light were committing the "greatest sin" you really have issues… btw where did you get the information to use as a basis of my being a misguided soul,.. did you learn it in school, were you born with it? NO!!

neuernutzer December 15, 2012 at 5:36 pm

I feel very sorry for you Ugandan, your comments to me and CastleRockBear, whom I feel is a true Christian, I feel you have not grasped a single meaning of the gospels. I do sincerely wish, a person whom you honor and love sincerely turns out to be created a homosexual by god. Maybe that would open your eyes. Wishing you all the best.

You outed yourself as absolutely having no knowledge at all, but instead you follow main stream hatred, and not the Chriist's word as you claim to do.

So who is up next, people who wear cloths of more than one fabric? Burn 'em at the stake?

BTW: It is usually homosexuals who do not accept who they are and turn against themselves by hating others who have the courage to accept the life they were given.

CastleRockBear December 15, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Your hate points itself out…Yes I studied theology, and know where the problems are in interpretation of scripture, judging is spoken of directly as in Judge NOT lest you be judged…You are obviously uneducated in the realms of of the things you know so much about to judge, and in doing so you are committing the greatest sin by breaking the golden rule, TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM TREAT YOU…I'm not worried about my place spiritually because I love all of God's creations without judging anything that God has mad, you included! :)

ugandan December 20, 2012 at 1:47 am

you cant be christian if you dont read the bible, you cant be christian if you get your information over the tv,… EVERY BOOK IN THE BIBLE IS AGAINST HOMOSEXUALITY!!!! YOUR PASTORS ARE BEING ARRESTED FOR SPEAKING AGAINST HOMOSEXUALITY (CANADA) YOUR TV MANAGERS ARE BEING ARRESTED FOR PROGRAMS AGAINST HOMOSEXUALITY!!! SO IF YOU GET YOUR INFO FROM GOOGLE AND TV,… HOW CAN YOU CLAIM TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY!!! READ YOUR BIBLE!!!!

now thats av cooled down lets review the nonsense you wrote above…feeling sorry for me,.. true christian, meaning of gospel, created by "god", open my eyes….HA! i had a good laugh,.. okay first of all, the gospels you talk about are against homosexuality especially when it is the rape kind that is going on in my country, secondly a true christian doesnt go showing it around,.. and true Christians are rebels,… look at all the prophets priests and kings of the bible, Jesus inclusive,.. they faced opposition from all angles and scrutiny,.. DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW THE PROTESTANT CHURCH GOT ITS NAME????(thats something they wont show you on tv), #3. "god" didnot crate homosexuals,.. God never created anything bad,… the devil manipulates circumstances around your birth to lure you to his side so never say that blasphemy again!!

TRUTHFULLY SPEAKING I DIDNT READ THE REST OF YOUR NONSENSE AFTER THE BURNING OF THE STAKE BIT,.. I KNEW I WAS DEALING WITH A KID AND ADULT'S BODY

Dear Ugandan, you remind of my a little kid, screaming and hollering when it knows it's doing wrong. Thanks for your comment.
