I just pity my fellow believers who claim to be holly that Uganda should stone the gay to death as life imprisonment is not enough like kimani maureen and so on i think God loves us the way we are!!, We are all children of God, Love one another is what the Godly prophets told us, Its only God to pass judgement, We all face the same Hell in case we sin; a chicken thief, a bank robber, a rapist, a gay, why always stick to personal issues instead of things which will help us develop? how comes a person claiming to be a believer in God/Allah preaches the gospel of punishment instead of guidance and counseling a believer supporting death which kind of Holly books do they have is this what our creator tells us to say or do to the so called sinners? tell me one person in this world who says or can stand out and say ME AM HOLLY ? sin is through thought, deeds etc , i think we should love to be together in spirit , etc otherwise the UGANDA'S GAY LAW HAS CLEARLY HELPED US TO SEE THE REAL HEARTS OF PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO BE BELIEVERS AND HAVE BEEN TEACHING US THE GOSPEL OF LOVING ONE ANOTHER & FORGIVENESS; that none has come out to say these are our brothers and sisters who need love and counseling i thank the parliament of Uganda for bringing this testing yardstick to our self proclaimed believers otherwise LETS NOT MAKE GAY PEOPLE PRAY THAT;- OUR LORD GOD SAVIOR KINDLY SAVE US FROM YOUR BELIEVERS!! enjoy the discussions many have attacked OBAMA, DESMOND TUTU and so on but all these are the same people they have been praising for doing good but why this time on minority rights of gay people in Uganda when they came out now they are being opposed even some wishing them death? THE GAY WE ARE ACCUSING WE SHALL EITHER FIND THEM IN HEAVEN OR HELL TOGETHER . because ai think a persons going to HEAVEN is not determined by his long term deeds but his last deeds on earth at the last time of life on earth like have you accepted jesus or Allah as your God? i mean have you repented your sins so what if a gay person repents his or her sins on the last minute you a believer fails coz you died of an abrupt car accident who then to go to HELL OR HEAVEN the gay you treated badly on earth or you the believer / hypocrite ? lets preach a gospel of reconcilliation with one another not hatred because after the gay then prostitutes, then corrupt ones, then liars, then robbers and thieves and at last they will come for you..so where will the world be looking like 10years head? be blessed all.
