Uganda: ‘Kill the Gays’ Law Imposing Death Penalty on Homosexuals *Added information*

The love of their god is their love to hate.  Think of the money and effort to change a countries view on homosexuality to such a fervent dislike and anger against.   Why.  What does it matter to Scott Lively that people a world away on a totally different country on a different continent may have sex with their own genders?  It is sick.  Talk about recruitment, it is not the gays doing it.   Hugs

Uganda: ‘Kill the Gays’ Law Imposing Death Penalty on Homosexuals

Homosexuality was illegal in Uganda under existing colonial laws, he explained, “But nobody was ever arrested or prosecuted based on those old laws. People turned a blind eye to it. Homosexuality was not a political issue.”

That changed in 2009, Rev Kaoma said, when a group of American evangelicals led by Pastor Scott Lively, a self-proclaimed expert on the “gay movement”, held a series of talks in Uganda. Mr Lively warned audiences that the “evil institution” of homosexuality sought to “prey upon” and recruit Ugandan children in a bid to “defeat the marriage-based society”.

Dr Frank Mugisha, director of the LGBT rights organisation, Sexual Minorities Uganda (Smug), recently told The Independent on Sunday, “[The idea] of a gay agenda, of recruiting people to homosexuality – that language wasn’t used in Uganda pre-2009. [Lively] made my work very difficult and was conspiring with my legislators, but [to Ugandans] he was like God himself. People were worshipping him as if he was from heaven.”

American conservatives first arrived in Uganda in significant numbers following the fall, in 1979, of Idi Amin, the Muslim dictator who had banned evangelical Christianity. Among them was Mike Bickle, founder of the Kansas City-based International House of Prayer (IHOP). According to Mr Williams, “Bickle was there on the ground on the day Amin fell… with a group of American Christian leaders, to take the country as a Christian nation.”

US Christian groups have since spent millions on schools, hospitals and orphanages in Uganda. They have also found fertile ground for their religious values. Rev Kaoma said American conservatives may have lost the culture wars on the home-front, but they believe they can win in the developing world. “The battle has been fought on American soil, and then exported to the African continent,” he said.

Holding people illegally in for profit prisons paid for by the taxpayer

The surge in migrant detention has occurred against the backdrop of a criminal justice overhaul in Louisiana that has reduced the state’s prison population and threatened the economies of the small towns that rely on the jails.

ICE has stepped into the void. At Winn, which started detaining migrants in May, employee salaries have risen from $10 an hour to $18.50. Local officials have signed contracts that guarantee millions in payments to the local government, the state, and a private prison company based in the state, while still allowing ICE to detain migrants at a daily cost well below its national average.

 

Detainees are required to walk from site to site with their hands clasped behind their backs, as if they are handcuffed. Most employees don’t speak Spanish or Hindi and communicate with migrants using hand signals or a few words of English that one person can translate to others.

 

Advocates blame the administration for detaining legitimate asylum seekers who could otherwise be released with future court dates. They say the jails in Louisiana epitomize the problem.

A federal judge recently ruled that ICE was unlawfully refusing to release asylum seekers in Louisiana under its authority to grant parole. Lawyers say very few people are granted parole from Winn or other facilities in the state. Without it, detainees must request bond from an immigration judge, which can take months.

 

A decline in prison population could eventually have led to the prison closing, Jordan said.

“It would be devastating,” he said. “You’d see people moving, bankruptcy. It would be like an automobile plant closing.”

Jordan, ICE, and LaSalle Corrections, which was already running the prison, agreed in May to a five-year contract, with an option to add five more.

ICE pays around $70 per day for each inmate, Jordan said, more than double what the state was paying to house convicts. That is still well below what ICE pays nationally, which it estimated at around $133 per day in 2017.

“The top one percent owns nearly $30 trillion of assets while the bottom half owns less than nothing.

Adding to the mountain of statistical evidence showing the severity of U.S. inequality, an analysis published Friday found that the top one percent of Americans gained $21 trillion in wealth since 1989 while the bottom 50 percent lost $900 billion.

‘Just Absurd’: Flood of Ridicule as Trump Readies Executive Order to Stop ‘Socialist Destruction’ of Government-Run Medicare

Filed under: Criminal, Economics, Fascism, Greed, Health, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 11:09

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/09/30/just-absurd-flood-ridicule-trump-readies-executive-order-stop-socialist-destruction

“Not only did Trump’s own budget make deep cuts to Medicare, but can someone explain to me how a socialist program can be saved from socialism?

Observers said Trump’s planned executive order is reminiscent of the infamous “keep your government hands off my Medicare” line that was shouted at a Republican lawmaker during a town hall in 2009, in the heat of the fight over the Affordable Care Act.

“I understand why people like Trump and [Vice President Joe] Biden try to scare old people about Medicare for All. Scaring old people is time-tested!” HuffPost reporter Jeffrey Young tweeted Sunday. “But the idea that giving government healthcare to everyone somehow means taking it from people who already have government healthcare is just absurd.
