Judith Twikirize is a Ugandan victim of hatred. She is also a heroine of survival Thirteen years ago, when Twikirize was a young tomboy living in Uganda,she was taken to a witch doctor at the wishes of her teachers and grandmother to be exorcised at the age of 10 years old. That was thirteen years ago before the homophobic bill was passed – but is cutting being carried out as you read this article?
It was hoped that by cutting her deep with razors and forcing her to sleep in a ‘house of spirits’, it would force the evil that ’causes lesbianism’ to leave. This went on weekly, sometimes twice a week for a year.
Pastor Martin Ssempa
He is in favour of ‘exorcisms’ for homosexuality, although whether he is in favour of the cutting part is unknown (so we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt). What we do know is that he is being subpoenaed for his hateful words and actions and his connection to Rev. Scott Lively (USA) who is on trial in the states for “Crimes Against Humanity.”
From the subpoena: Read about the “Christian” Ssempa
Defendant Scott Lively (“Defendant”) conspired with Mr. Ssempa and others to “intentionally and severely deprive persons of fundamental rights on the basis of their sexual orientation and gender identity.”
Mr. Ssempa is known for employing forced outings, and “homosexual exorcisms,” and showing graphic pornography to his church congregations, as well as for making threatening statements and taking other actions, in order to deny the humanity of LGBTI individuals. Id. at ¶ 120.
For example, as early as 2003,
In 2007, Mr. Ssempa began to publicize the names, photos, and address information of LGBTI advocates in an attempt to intimidate those persons
Is it Fair to Say?
Is it fair to say that President Museveni, Pastor Stephen Langa (Uganda), Pastor Martin Ssempa and Pastor Scott Lively (USA) have their hands on knives that mutilate lesbians or on the bars and clubs that pound gay men?
If these individuals have been instrumental in passing a homophobic bill in the Ugandan Parliament, and then the President signs it into law, surely they have some indirect or direct action with the violence and killings that follow.
Outing of Ugandan Gays and Lesbians
In 2007, Mr. Ssempa began to publicize the names, photos, and address information of LGBTI advocates in an attempt to intimidate those person. Red Pepper published pictures and names and David Kato (a gay activist) was murdered in his home in daylight.
Again, are these people indirectly involved in David’s murder?
