“Enlightened” Gay Activists Strong Arming Developing Nations

Nigeria in the Cross Hairs

Following it’s principles, AIDS wracked Nigeria has unanimously voted to prohibit gay marriage.  Unanimously.  Can you even imagine that here in the states?  Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country and suffers high rates of HIV/AIDS, infant mortality, infectious diseases such as typhoid fever, malaria and yellow fever, Lassa fever and meningococcal meningitis.

The country struggles against widespread poverty and environmental degradation, yet gay rights activists are now clamoring to hold hostage the much needed aid to that country because of their stance on gay marriage.

What does gay marriage have to do with helping those in such need?

The war on marriage is not only here in the states but across the globe, and with this move, gay activists are showing that they consider this imperiled aid a legitimate weapon in that war.  The more countries they can force to their side, the stronger their world wide mandate for marriage becomes.

Coercing and pressuring these developing nations through economics, rhetoric and political power, increases their power to pressure even more nations like Nigeria who are struggling to maintain family and religious values.

Far from the ideals of free choice and enlightenment, withholding aid  speaks more of brute force school-yard bullying, and shouldn’t be allowed to become the new weapon of choice against developing nations.

Stop Foreign Aid to Nigeria for Banning Gay “Marriage”: European Union’s Homosexual Rights Group

By Hilary White

BRUSSELS, January 21, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The European Union’s Intergroup on “gay rights” has demanded that all foreign aid to Nigeria be suspended after that country’s House of Representatives voted to prohibit attempts to create legal “gay marriage.” The Nigerian vote was unanimous this week in favour of a bill that “prohibits marriage between persons of same gender, solemnisation of same and other matters related therewith.”

“The only result this law is going to achieve is a raising hatred against gay, lesbian and transgender citizens of Nigeria,” said Michael Cashman, Labour MEP and President of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transsexual Intergroup. The Intergroup is sending a request to the European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid to “evaluate” the financial support given to Nigeria.

Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, suffers high rates of HIV/AIDS, infant mortality, infectious diseases such as typhoid fever, malaria and yellow fever, Lassa fever and meningococcal meningitis. The country struggles against widespread poverty and environmental degradation.

But one Nigerian representative, Igo Aguma, said it was against the religious beliefs of Nigerians as well as the country’s penal code to “engage in activities that are as quarrelsome as this between man and man, as well as women and women.” Nigeria is 50 percent Muslim, 40 percent Christian with animists making up 10 ten percent.

“It is time for us at this point in time to think back and look at the scourge of HIV/AIDS. The greatest means of transmitting this disease is through the act of sodomy. Young children are already victims of being lured into this cruel and unimaginable act. It is an act of perversion,” said Aguma.

    Oh I get it. We only help people with whom we share political ideals. It doesn’t matter how many people are starving, we just ignore them if they don’t believe the same as us.

    It takes away some of the sympathy with the gay cause if they get the reputation for bullying like they did in California. The more these stories get spread around, the more their image suffers.

    They can’t keep up the double face forever.

    I’ll never forget that video with Mayor Newsom waving his hands around like he’s so great and proclaiming to the nation that we were going to have gay marriage “whether you like it or not!”

    To me, that totally encompasses their strategy. It’s despicable, but forcing their way through society is the only way they can get what they want. No one would ever vote gay marriage in on the face of it.

    Next step…hate maps, targeting anyone who donates any money towards a charity devoted to help Nigeria. Because that’s HATE money, right?

    Thanks for the write up BB. The more people that know about these extremists the better.

    It’s a concerted effort world wide to overturn marriage. I’ve only been involved in this fight since prop 8, and the more I look, the more facets of this attack I find. It bothers me to no end to see good people trying to take a stand for what they believe and being overruled or harassed, or in this case, even having the food and medical aid they need taken from them, all for an agenda. These guys are playing hardball.

    “…it was against the religious beliefs of Nigerians as well as the country’s penal code to ‘engage in activities that are as quarrelsome as this between man and man, as well as women and women.'”
    It’s odd that they’re even worrying about gay marriage there, considering that in Nigeria sodomy is still punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment, or death in the Sharia-following areas. That’s like banning right-turns-on-red in a place where driving is illegal.

    “It is time for us at this point in time to think back and look at the scourge of HIV/AIDS.”
    That nations like Uganda fought pretty well with wide-ranging sex-ed programs. Now, not so much.

    “The greatest means of transmitting this disease is through the act of sodomy.”
    True, but putting homosexuals in prison is hardly likely to help…and homosexuals are hardly the only people to engage in sodomy.

    “Young children are already victims of being lured into this cruel and unimaginable act. It is an act of perversion.”
    Can we stop conflating homosexuality with pedophilia?

    The distinction between a victim’s gender and a perpetrator’s sexual orientation is important because many child molesters don’t really have an adult sexual orientation. They have never developed the capacity for mature sexual relationships with other adults, either men or women. Instead, their sexual attractions focus on children – boys, girls, or children of both sexes.

    For the present discussion, the important point is that many child molesters cannot be meaningfully described as homosexuals, heterosexuals, or bisexuals (in the usual sense of those terms) because they are not really capable of a relationship with an adult man or woman. Instead of gender, their sexual attractions are based primarily on age.

    Groth and Birnbaum (1978) studied 175 adult males who were convicted in Massachusetts of sexual assault against a child. None of the men had an exclusively homosexual adult sexual orientation. 83 (47%) were classified as “fixated;” 70 others (40%) were classified as regressed adult heterosexuals; the remaining 22 (13%) were classified as regressed adult bisexuals. Of the last group, Groth and Birnbaum observed that “in their adult relationships they engaged in sex on occasion with men as well as with women. However, in no case did this attraction to men exceed their preference for women….There were no men who were primarily sexually attracted to other adult males…”

    The research to date all points to there being no significant relationship between a homosexual lifestyle and child molestation. There appears to be practically no reportage of sexual molestation of girls by lesbian adults, and the adult male who sexually molests young boys is not likely to be homosexual. (fm UCDavis

    Well they are both perversions from the natural…

  11. January 30, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    ..the adult male who sexually molests young boys is not likely to be homosexual.

    Isn’t homosexual acts, sexual acts between people of the same sex? that would mean two males, even one young and another one older.

  12. January 30, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    They mean that pedophiles that prey on children of the same sex are generally not homosexual in their adult relationships (Ron and John, adult homosexuals, are unlikely to be Ron and John, homosexual pedophiles).

  13. January 30, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    I wonder if any one has done any research on heterosexual pedophiles verses homosexual pedophiles. I imagine that there would be more heterosexual abuses since there are more heterosexual people. There seems to be a lot of homosexual abuse in the media as opposed to heterosexual abuse, although I haven’t been counting.

  14. January 31, 2009 at 1:55 am

    Ah, I probably should’ve just posted the conclusion, lest I muddy the waters.

    The empirical research does not show that gay or bisexual men are any more likely than heterosexual men to molest children.

    Clearly the Aguma has forgotten the real reason for the rampant spread of AIDS: people believing their local shamans instead of real science and listening to idiots like the Pope, leading to condom-free, unprotected heterosexual sex.

    And Delirious, why would you want to give money who go against your moral code? Starvation is not an excuse for mooching.

    Promiscuity helps spread aids, fidelity to one’s partner stops the spread of the disease.
