Afrakan spirituality

I just did a presentation in my world religion class where I explained how the cross was a symbol of death and was intended to torture people needless to say instead of a 100 I received a 99

I always thought about this. Romans used that many times. Especially since some romans went to study in Egypt to begin with. Like, does nobody ever think about stuff like this?
Ugandan President’s Daughter Reveals She is Gay ↘







In a startling revelation, the daughter of Ugandan President Yoweri ­Museveni admitted today during a radio talk show in Mbarara, in Western Uganda that she is homosexual, and that she is revealing this fact as a protest to the anti-gay law her father signed only a few days ago.

Diana Kamuntu, Museveni’s daughter said that though she loves her father unconditionally, she does not agree with Uganda’s anti-gay stance, and will fight against it.

“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl. Also, I have been Christian all of my life, so I will not tolerate any law of this supposedly democratic nation, that will place hate on any person just because of what his or her sexual orientation happens to be,” said Kamuntu.

“Now that I finally revealed my sexual orientation, I put myself in front of this new law and I will let our people decide what to do with me,” Kamuntu adds, as her voice breaks down while on air.

The radio host, James Kasirivu noticeably was in shock, and could not seemingly get words out of his mouth.

The live radio broadcast was abruptly shortened and was put off air after a few hours of repeated commercials.

In the latest setback for homosexuals across Africa, the Ugandan President signed a law Monday that imposes tough penalties for homosexual acts, a move that has been condemned from around the world and that may jeopardize Uganda’s relationship with the United States and other Western nations.

As of this writing, neither the radio station nor the office of Ugandan President Yoweri ­Museveni could be reached for comment.

Bravery is just no the fucking word for this woman.
I don’t have a word strong enough.
This woman is amazing.
Just amazing.

oh my word

wow. i wonder what’s going to happen now.

Praying it doesn’t all end up more horrific. Good lord.

This is really brave. I won’t lie part of me initially wondered how true this is, just last week there was news about a gay man saying he had sex with Museveni.

Yet considering that she’s the president’s daughter, I really doubt anything horrific is going to happen to her. I mean this is something I point out when it comes to LGBTIQ people living in African countries, those with privileged can (and do) live more or less open and carefree lives. Whether they choose to come out or not. I know a lot of people who won’t agree with me on this.

Because everyone needs this on their blog

You wanna know what living life to the fullest actually is? It’s waking up on a Monday morning with no complaints. It’s knowing you always deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to, no matter how stupid you look. It’s about being yourself, ‘cause no one can tell you you’re doing it wrong.
