...In response, Exodus International said it applauds its board member Don Schmierer, who attended the Uganda conference, for his effort to convey an “alternative message that encompasses a compassionate, biblical view of homosexuality,” according to a statement by Exodus International president Alan Chambers to The Christian Post on Wednesday.
I cannot argue with a truly "compassionate" approach to homosexuality; but I do think it is time for such 'compassion' to be defined more clearly. As it is, people do horrible things to homosexual people, in the name of "compassion".
[/quote]Exodus says neither Schmierer nor the ministry agrees or endorses Uganda’s criminalization of homosexuality law, imprisonment of homosexuals or compulsory therapy. Rather, the ministry says it “unequivocally denounces” the positions the government of Uganda has towards homosexuality...[/quote]
To me, Uganda is WHACK and hypocritical in their view of homosexuality (as many human beings tend to be). Even so, we should focus on our own nations primarily, to help ensure that human rights are observed and/or improved where this is concerned. For unless one is committing a crime or breaking a law of some sort here in America
, I see no good reasons to show social or legal prejudice towards them. I'm sure that other nations will have a lot further to go
towards justice as we know it here in the U.S.A.
