Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage hailed as historic victory

(CNN) — A deeply divided Supreme Court nudged the nation toward broad recognition of same-sex marriage on Wednesday in rulings that advocates hailed as a “joyous occasion” — but still left many questions unanswered.

Voting 5-4 in each of two decisions, justices threw out part of a law that denied hundreds of federal benefits to same-sex couples and cleared the way for gays and lesbians to once again marry in California.

At the same time, the high court declined to make a sweeping statement on the broader issue of same-sex marriage rights nationwide, rejecting California’s same-sex marriage ban but leaving intact laws banning such marriages in 35 other states. New Jersey has civil unions for same-sex couples, while New Mexico’s marriage law is gender neutral and recognizes valid marriages performed in other states.

Dear Brethren,

Peace be to you all!

We must pray without ceasing. There is more urgency here in Jerusalem (Kampala – Uganda) 

The Lord is saying that there is no truth in us. There is much sin that is not confessed. The anger of the Lord is on this nation
 Uganda meant to take the truth to the nations. The light of the gospel is suffocated by those supposed to promote it. We can have

our country healed only when our truth (sin in us – 1John 1:8) is released to meet God’s mercy.”Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth (our bodies); and 

righteousness shall look down from heaven.” (Psalm 85:10-11)

1.       UGANDA CAN BE FORGIVEN WHEN THE TRUTH IS TOLD (PSALM 85) 25.06.2013

I see the president being helped to walk. He is asking; “where is the police who used to be truthful?”

I then see a notice board with a line marking an end of what was written above. Below the line was a number”85″.

There can be an end to the anger of the Lord. Uganda can become prosperous and can flourish. The welfare of this nation can change.

The nation must repent by speaking the truth. There is hidden sin and people are not telling the truth about what is going on. Confession of sin is the way to go. It is the way of righteousness that will calm God’s anger.

All must repent if we need to see an end to the wrath of God. Those who work must do so in truth.

I don’t agree with the philosophy of brother Onen when he says that let people live their lives the way they want. I believe that if he himself was left by people around him to live the way he wanted, then his own life probably would not be where it is today. The same reasoning renders the preaching of the gospel and any other endeavor that postivel y changes the lives of people pointless. Our major concern in Africa should not really be about doing something about the sinking of America. America has already made a choice to sink and the way things look they are stuck on course. September 11 and the current economic down turn has not been enough warning for her. The real issue is this: America wants to sink with other nations and especially Africa. Top on the Agenda of President Obama’s current visit to Africa is pressurising African leaders to open space for homosexuality. Our responsibility is to ward off this pressure. Today Red Papper carried a lamentation which indicated that the anti-homosexuality bill has disappeared from the Order Paper. If that is so then your guess is as good as mine about who could be responsible for that. 

Ladies and gentlemen, we should not remain sitted down and only keep commenting and debating this issue on mail. We must act by practically doing something. This anti-homoseuality bill if passed into law will address the issue of recruitment of our people, (our concern is especially for our naive children) promotion of the vice and funding of the operations of homosexual fraternities locally. We elected our political leadership to serve us. Each of us in this mailing list should reach out and put pressure on the leadership in government and parliament to have the bill back in the house and on the floor of parliament. We should join hands with Coalition For Advancement of Moral Values in Uganda (CAMOVA chaired by Dr. Nsaba Buturo) or form another pressure group to have the will of the people done.

For seven years now the powers behind this monster called homosexuality has kept this bill off the floor of paliament partly because we have not done enough as responsibility demands. We can not just sit and look on as America attempts to load us on the sinking boat. We must protect ourselves. We must act and act now. God bless.
