The Fear Of Death Hunting Homosexuals In Africa

Is homosexuality a sickness or disease that can be cured?

Homosexuality is not part of the African culture but they are now listening to external voice: First traditional Gay marriage in South Africa.

Homosexuality, men having sexual intercourse, is an abominable act in many parts of Africa. Africa, a continent of different tribes and clans, doesn’t approve many things that they considered a taboo. Thus; someone caught in a homosexual act, instantly faces severe punishment, beatings and lynchings, many times leading to death.
                             Since homosexuality is a crime in African countries that don’t permit, those involved in such acts, hide it from the sight of the public, but homosexuality movements in Europe and America today, fighting for  recognition have inspired or encouraged African homosexuals to make their voice heard.
                            Thus, the social vice which is less popular in Africa, is now becoming famous in many African countries, turning the countries into an unnerving place to live in, because church leaders and many organisations against this practice, wouldn’t like to embrace this type of culture, they called it ‘Evil’ to add to their own culture.
                          At times, I do ask myself time and time, do Europeans or Americans think Africa will readily accept whatever they are interested? Africa has nothing to do with Christianity before the white missionaries ever went there. They thought Africans to follow the Bible or the gospel. Well, later the truth was discovered. The reason wasn’t to let Africans know about Christianity but to loot.
                       Fortunately, many parts of Africa derived interest in the Bible and studied it thoroughly, therefore living by its teachings. An African Christian, explaining his point, to defend his hate against homosexuality, would take one deep step into the Bible. Two of such scriptures confirming that homosexuality is an evil act can be read at  1st Timothy: Chapter 10 and 1st Corinthians, chapter 6, verse 9.
                      The question is: Why are Europeans and other Gay Rights Organisations, now fighting for the practice of homosexuality to be recognized in Africa, when they had already been there with the Holy Bible, a book telling Africans how evil the practice of homosexuality is?” The teachings of the Holy Bible can’t be reversed, so I am afraid to say that Africa can never change its mind or opinion on the negative aspects of homosexuality.
                       Africa is already overwhelmed by many diseases, such as AIDS, Ebola, malaria and others. It’s, therefore, make sense when they don’t want that practice. Europeans, Advanced Countries, and some Civil Right Organisations are the first people that voices are heard, whenever there is any bad situation in Africa, but whenever there is an epidemic, the respond to contain the situation never comes or very slow.
                      Aids have taken thousands of Africans to their untimely grave, since the early eighties, but there some rich people that had Aided in that period in America, who are still living. Many believed after Africa’s survival of Aids, Ebola, and other deadly diseases, America and Europe are destined to ruin the continent with homosexuality, just to continue to kill Africans, when any epidemic erupts.
                     Africa has learned a lot from their misfortunes, that is the reason it is fighting against homosexuality today. Unfortunately, the path Uganda has taken to deal with this issue is totally out of course. The proposal for the death penalty for homosexuals is sheer madness. Violence against homosexuals is not an option or solution.
                    According to many homosexuals, they were born with it. Who feels it, knows it. Do men bear to love men? That’s really a hard concept to accept. The more I think about this issue, the more I get confused. African leaders must find a way to deal with the rise of homosexuality in Africa because death is not an option to eradicate or stop homosexuality in Africa.

Incest: Can A Brother Marry His Own Sister?

 

Incest

Is incest is no more a taboo? Brothers marrying sisters is now becoming common

Superstition, beliefs and performing of rituals are associated with many tribes and ethnic groups, in different parts of the world. There are many things considered a taboo. For example, Saturday is Sabbath for the Jews. It is a day for religious services and abstinence from work. Clans, tribes and people carrying out traditional values, believe in punishment when the law is broken.

Something from ages people considered a taboo is an incest: Sexual intercourse between very closely related people. But as the generation advances some of these taboos are no longer taken into consideration. Son sleeps with his mother, a father has carnal knowledge with his daughter. The news is disturbing, but they are true.

Incest is a common issue these days, even though it is illegal or prohibited.There are many stories of accidental incest love affairs. For example, a Brazilian couple looking for their mothers who abandoned them when they were children, found out later that they were searching for the same person.

Leandro had no knowledge that she lives with her own sister, Adriana. They already had a six-year daughter in their seven- year common-law marriage. That’s accidental anyway, but it’s hard to believe that now a days, many young men can’t resist the nakedness of their own sisters, hmm!

A young man interviewed over his relation with his sister said “I don’t see anything wrong with this. People look at us like we are from a different planet. I love my sister and we have a baby now.” The question is, does incest poses any health hazard? The Holy Bible speaks against incest in many ways.

Also, social scientists believe that children from incestuous affairs have higher risks for hereditary disorders. Whatever people may view incest, we have to admit that we are now in a world, people will go to the extent of fulfilling their heart wishes and desires, without thinking of any future consequences.

That ‘golden box’ God gave a woman is the most powerful thing on earth, which can push a man to follow any direction without looking back. If you want to be sure of what I’m saying, ask former American president Bill Clinton, he will tell you more about Monica Lewinsky and ask golf superstar, Tiger Woods, he also has a story to share with  Joslyn James. The two great men lost focus and concentration because of the power of the ‘Golden Box.’
