North Ankole Diocese Bishop has urged Christians to resist homosexuality acts
The Bishop of North Ankole Diocese, Rt Rev Steven Namanya has vowed to mobilize Christians to resist homosexuality in his diocese even if it means resorting to the Biblical times of Moses where such people would be stoned.
Speaking during the Compassion Uganda satellite launch and 2nd graduation of compassion children at Canon Buningwire Guest house on Wednesday, Bishop Namanya told the Christians and church leaders in greater Kiruhura that there is no way Christians in Uganda should accept the Western values which he says are contrary to the Christian teachings and the African culture.
The Bishop noted that the vice of homosexuality is slowly but surely creeping into our communities like Schools, where he said that there is information that homosexuals have also started penetrating young people in search of new recruits.
The Bishop asked Christians and non-Christians to work together and fight the vice and appealed to parents to develop a culture of talking to their children about the dangers of accepting small gifts from foreigners whose motive is not known.
Instead, he said, they should guide them on Christian values that can help them resist practices that will ruin their lives.
Speaking at the same function, Lenny Mugisha, the compassion country director asked the grandaunds to go in their communities and advocate for children, committed to Jesus Christ in all that they do where he also pronounced that Compassion also they don’t support homosexuality.
Compassion project started in 2001 in North Ankole Diocese where they were operating in centers including Kashwa CDC, Kazo CDC, Burunga CDC, Ruhuhe CDC, Sya CDC, Kashongi CDC, and Kanyaryeru CDC but now, the project will continue working in only three centers of Ruhuhe, Sya, and Kashongi under satellite.
