    Gays, Bishops Clash at CHOGM (Uganda)
    At a press conference the bishops called upon Commonwealth
    countries not to condone homosexuality saying it's a human wrong
    and never a right.
    "The Commonwealth should not legislate for human wrongs.
    Homosexuality is an evil, which should never be discussed during
    Chogm. In Chogm meetings, we should advocate for them to
    change because the act is unnatural," Bishop Niringiye said.

HATE CRIME IN THE
GREATER NEW
YORK CITY AREA

While we were in
East Africa, July and
August, 2007,
an
ugly hate crime
against a gay
couple
inflicted by
Burger King
employees
happened in our
own "back yard" --
in
the greater part of
New York City.

Friends in the USA
were afraid for our
safety in East Africa.  
At the same time we
were in East Africa a
brutal hate crime
against LGBTs was
happening right
here in in the USA in
our very own area.
"I have other sheep that are
not of this fold.  I must bring
them in also."   John 10:16
