Will strong financial ties to the U.S. be enough to have Museveni stop the anti-gay bill? Or is the “historic religious revival” underway in Uganda enough to power this homosexual hatred to its ultimate extreme?
Uganda's First Lady Janet Museveni sounds a lot like President Bush and his minions in the Christian right.
Mrs. Museveni is on a mission to ensure that the only method of preventing HIV and AIDS in her country is through strict adherence to abstinence-only education for everyone. Sound familiar?
The First Lady of Uganda is a Born-again Christian who equates condom use with murder. She also offers scholarships to girls in her country who can prove they are virgins; something to which George Bush can only aspire.
On World AIDS Day this year, Mrs. Museveni told students at the Uganda Christian University, Mukono, "I would not be caught advising you to take any shortcuts or compromise your lives by using any device invented by man, such as condoms, in order to facilitate any desire to go against God's clear plan for your life."
