Blown by Gay Wind

Everyone knows that prior to Bishop Robinson’s installation in March 2004 Africa was a peaceful and harmonious land of plenty, where men loved their fellow men in unsoiled platonic relationships. Yet today everything has changed, and speaking in the Ugandan Sunday Monitor Archbishop of the Church Orombi lays it on the line: “Moral degeneration is the cause of religious and leadership conflicts”.

This is, of course, why religious and leadership conflicts are unknown among GAFCON clergy, and never occur within the African Church leadership; since the closely united single organisation representing Orthodoxy is untainted by any stain of moral degeneration. Similarly, as James Buyinza writes concerning homosexuality in an impressively logical piece in the Rwandan New Times: “such behaviours are unheard of, though some isolated cases have been sighted, but we need to stay at the guard before the bad forces of globalization and the so called contemporary Christianity attacks us.”

Indeed, as a Rwandan Mr Buyinza speaks from a unique position of insight when he says: “The reasons why Africa is still facing some of the problems such as poverty, hunger and civil wars is that we Africans have tended to compromise ourselves with the unenthusiastic waves from our masters” and it certainly appears the African bishops share his wisdom. Let us all pray they continue to share his determination to “support my fellow Christians not to be blown by gay wind.”

Well Fr. Dr. Christian, you make this too easy sometimes. Here are the lyrics you have been pining for:

After all the jacks are in their boxes and the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
Footprints dressed in red and the wind whispers mary

A broom is drearily sweeping up the broken pieces of yesterdays life
Somewhere a queen is weeping somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind it cries mary

The traffic lights they turn of blue tomorrow
And shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sails downstream cause the life that lived is is dead
And the wind screams mary

Will the wind ever remember the names it has blown in the past
And with this crutch its old age and its wisdom
It whispers no this will be the last
And the wind cries mary

And to think that Gay Uganda wrote these words:

Hate speech, being chosen by the religious leaders of my country as the object of hate speech. The impunity they had, the religious zeal. I did not spare them, because they have not spared me. From the Mufti and his idea of a ghetto on an island in Lake Victoria, marooned till we die; the Anglican Archbishop with his fight against ‘colonialism’ using my sexuality as the rallying point. And of course Ssempa, though I did not mention his name. The Inter-faith Coalition against Homosexuality, and the hate speech on the FM stations, the lies about us, and all the other things.

I mean, what the hell would he know? He's gay and in Uganda.

He doesn't even exist.

Bishop Orombi is indeed a wise pontificator and he's a Godly Grandstander too...the only thing he seems to be missing is uncommonly good common sense...truly, for someone who, self-admittedly, grossly and boastfully, "chased skirts" he seems to think that other people and their sexual impulses are foreign and/or don't exist!

The man really ought seek help of the spiritual and intellectual kind before he continues to poison the otherwise healthy minds of Anglicans and other human beings.

And what exactly is "Gay wind?"

MadPriest said...

I too am worried about this "gay wind." What causes it?
Is there a diet plan than should be followed to avoid it?
Is it airborn? Can it pass from the perverted to the righteous?
My blog is sometimes visited gay people searching for the narrow path and I like to be able to offer the relevant medical advice.
