The most-read Christian website (and the fourth most-read conservative site), WorldNutDaily, posted the below video by WND columnist “Molotov Mitchell” for his “For the Record” rants. (“Molotov“, the Russian word for “big flaming liar“) Why can’t any of these people goddamn think for themselves and do some fact-checking? It’s pretty obvious that the dood hasn’t even read the text of the proposed Bill in the Ugandan legislature. After the fold, I want to point out a few fallacies.
Banner at beginning: “UGANDA GETS TOUGH” — No, Uganda is being lead by U.S. evangelicals’ false propaganda to introduce this barbaric legislation that should be against any rational person’s sensibilities.
0:14 “merciless taunting from some lesbian chick on MSNBC” (Rachel Maddow) — You really must be kidding, but I know you’re not.
0:19 “WARREN CAVES TO GAYS … AGAIN” — Caves to gays? Really, when was the first time? Molotov rakes Warren for saying the legislation is “unchristian”. To the big flamer, murdering innocent people is the christian thing to do.
0:30 “the Bible is where Ugandans got the idea in the first place” — No shit, dood, and while you’re quoting Leviticus, check out what your god says about that tattoo on yer arm. Blame “God” for your own immoral views. And he brings up the Founding Fathers and makes inaccurate claims about sodomy laws.
1:00 “King Mwanga” — Glad you brought that up, but you leave out quite a few details, like King Mwanga was 16-20 years old during his first reign over Buganda, and had 16 wives and 11 children. It was the older men and the teenaged male pages of the Court who were sexually abused by the child king, not an adult king abusing children. (Also, this matter of history falsifies the claim, by Ssempa and others, that “European and U.S. homosexual activists” imported homosexuality to Uganda. Sexuality is an innate part of all human beings.)
So anyways, the Catholic, Protestant and Muslim missionaries, who were played against each other by Mwanga’s father (the previous ruler), started condemning the child king for his sexual proclivities. The 45 young pages were executed for failing to renounce their newly adopted Christian faith.
1:19 “22 Catholic martyrs” Yep, he roasted alive 22 Catholics and a newly-installed archbishop. Catholics are going to Hell, anyways … just kiddin’ … that’s what the Baptists say!
So then, there is a HUGE motherfucking difference between a sadistic, murderous 19th-century pagan ruler who sexually tortured his servants, and “lowly” regular citizens of Uganda today who are being targeted by a Christian government for no valid reason.
About Sodom and Gomorrah: The whole characterization of the “sodomite king” is warped and exploited to serve the anti-gay agenda. Not to mention the whole Sodom/Gomorrah story that christian extremists completely rewrite to serve their agenda. First off, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by the Köfels asteroid impact recorded by many civilizations, including the Genesis account, pinpointed to have taken place shortly before dawn on June 29 in the year 3123 B.C. Hardly the act of a supernatural being, unless you believe that God sent the Haitian earthquake, Katrina/Rita, and other natural disasters. Secondly, the story in the Bible was about rape, not consensual sex. Links regarding the Genesis account: TheTimesOnlineUK, ReligiousTolerance.org, )
2:15 “not a witch hunt … gays are more than free to leave Uganda” — Wrong, Asshole, they are not free to leave the country. If you knew WTF you were talking about, then you would know that the law will reach internationally and extradite gay citizens back to Uganda for punishment and execution. Also, the average Ugandan citizen living on $2USD/day cannot just up-and-leave for an intercontinental flight. KNOW what the fuck you’re talking about instead of spreading misinformation to a highly gullible audience. And, you are correct … it’s not a witch hunt, it’s a gay hunt … and anyone who knows “a gay” or related to “a gay”. BTW, christians in Africa are hunting down children suspected of being witches and killing them.
2:20 “don’t compare this with Nazi Germany” — whoa, dude. Sociopath Scott Lively is on video explaining to Ugandans in detail how [paraphrased] “homosexual men are soulless, heartless killers just like the homosexuals running the Nazi gas chambers”. He made them believe, with his propaganda book “The Pink Swastika”, that homosexual men were running the goddamn Nazi horror. He made them believe that gay men and women today hunt down children. Look into it, Bro.
2:28 “founding fathers would fully support this” — They hanged witches, owned slaves, too. Punishment for male/male child sexual abuse included flogging, or whipping the child victim; that is detestable. The death penalty for “sodomy” was dropped following independence from Great Britain.
I am so tired of these people who invoke the “founding fathers” as though they were infallible deities. Today, in the 21st Century, science has recognized that sexual orientation is innate and we just really don’t put people to death because of their sexual orientation or because we think they might be a witch. We don’t condone slave ownership today, either, Molotov Fuck-Face. And Mitchell brings up bestiality — WTF is with these people who cannot stop thinking about sex with animals — Mitchell probably gets a “tingle up his leg” every time he thinks about it.
3:00 Mitchell invokes Martin Luther King, Jr. — I really, seriously doubt that MLK would have condoned putting Bayard Rustin to death. Mitchell should be ashamed for claiming that MLK would be for this atrocity in Uganda; his family today has one member who has expressed anti-gay sentiments, but the others have publicly supported gay rights.
3:10 “Uganda, stay on the right side of history” — yeah, stay classy, Jason “Molotov” Mitchell.
