The Archbishop of the Anglican Church in Uganda, Henry Luke Orombi, is afraid for his life. I remember reading a few years ago that due to the homosexual plague he suspended all his single, male priests until they were married in fear that they just might be homosexuals.
Now, it seems, he fears for his life. From an article in New Vision (“Uganda’s Leading Website”) entitled, “Gays want to kill me, says Orambi.”
Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi yesterday said he fears for his life because of the campaign he has waged against homosexuals.
â€œNowadays, I donâ€™t wear my collar when I am in countries which have supporters of homosexuals,â€ he said…
â€œI am forced to dress like a civilian because those people are dangerous. They can harm anybody who is against them. Some of them are killers. They want to close the mouth of anybody who is against them.â€
â€œHomosexuals are agitating that it is a human right. But how can it be a human right for a man to sleep with another man or a woman to marry a woman?â€ he asked.
â€œWhat we need is to wake up and protect our church and children against this practice.â€
Orombi noted that homosexuals were trying to take advantage of Africaâ€™s poverty by making donations, building schools and offering scholarships.
â€œWe should not accept any donation that comes our way and has strings attached. Some people have already fallen victims in Uganda and we need to stop it,â€ the archbishop said.
I really like the line that by giving money to help feed starving people or building schools and the like, that evil gay people are trying to take advantage of poor, and I guess ignorant, Ugandans. And, they are trying to kill the good Archbishop.
Well, there you go.

“Gosh. This is such a difficult question. How many gays have been killed or beaten up by homophobes? And how many Africans have been murdered by gays for criticising Western gay lifestyles?”
