The Martyrs of Uganda Died Because They Resisted the Aberrosexual Desires of Their King

Charles Lwanga and Companions
(Kampala) On Saturday, 28 November Pope Francis  visited Namugongo in Uganda. At 8:30, he  visited the memorial of the Anglican martyrs and at 9 o'clock the memorial of the Catholic martyrs. There he will conclude with the celebration of the Mass. In Namugongo, Charles Lwanga and other pages at the court of the Kabaka, king of Buganda were burned alive because of their Christian faith  on 3 June 1886.  In 1887 a total of 32 Christians were executed at the royal court in fourteen months between late and early 1885. 22 of them were Catholics, as well as Charles Lwanga.
The martyrs of Uganda were beatified  by Pope Benedict XV in 1920. In 1964 they were canonized by  Pope Paul VI.  on and June 3, has since been the Memorial of St. Charles Lwanga and his Companions.
The visit to Namugongo occupies a central place for the  visit to Uganda. There the Pope will celebrate his only public Mass in this East African country.

The Martyrdom of Charles Lwanga and Companions for Their Faith and Chastity

The visit is not without its explosiveness. Uganda has been widely criticized in the recent past because of the very different paths it took in matters of homosexuality, abortion, contraception and AIDS, than the West with its customary   abortion and contraceptive mentality.  The events in Namugongo have to do with homosexuality, and thus with AIDS and prevention,  and are therefore of particular relevance. But  hardly anyone knows  that in Europe.
To learn why Charles Lwanga and the other Christians found such a cruel death, you have to read the Roman martyrology. Charles Lwanga came, like his companions, from  the Bagandian nobility. The young noble sons were part of the entourage of the king, whom they served. The King of Buganda was then Mwanga II. While Charles Lwanga and other young nobles were baptized and followed Christ the King with great zeal his ear was lent in contrast to the  Islamic emissaries trying push back the growing Christian influence by the persecution of Christians, of Catholics and Anglicans.

Polygamy, Homosexuality and Islam

The reasons were not only political (influence by British, German and Arab, Anglicans, Catholics and Muslims), but also moral. The Roman martyrology speaks of the "obscene demands" of the king. This refers to homosexual desires of the then 20th Kabaka (king). These desires  were rejected by Christians at his court. Mwanga II. put them to death for it.
The highlight of this persecution was on June 3, the burning of Charles Lwanga and twelve companions in Namugongo, where a church was built in their memory. The Muslim advisor at the king's court had fewer problems with the way of life of the king. This was officially mainly for polygamy, who paid homage to the Kabaka of Buganda. The Christian understanding of marital monogamy was a serious cultural break with political implications. Due to the numerous women of Kabaka the various tribes of Baganda had share in the kingship. Polygamy was the matriarchal element of the unwritten constitution that secured kingship of all the tribes on a rotating basis. Islam, which permits polygamy, came to meet these political needs. This was also unofficially more congenial for the tyrannical King's homosexual desires, who desired to demonstrate  his power in the sense of  the sexual domination of men and women.
The Kabaka was overthrown later, was baptized Anglican, and returned with the British to power, but was soon overthrown again  in a joint action by the British and tribal superiors and died in 1903 in British exile in the Seychelles.

At the 117th anniversary of the Martyrdom the CDF Took a Position in  2003 on Homsexuality

It was no accident that the CDF, with the signature of its then prefect Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, precisely on June 3, 2003, published the document "Considerations Regarding Proposals of Legal Recognition for Unions Between Homosexual Persons."  It was a document on an issue that is one of the most controversial of our time. On this subject, the Catholic Church was exposed to massive external, but also internal pressure.
In the "Considerations"  the CDF states initially on marriage:
"The Church teaches that Christian marriage is an effective sign of the covenant between Christ and the Church (cf. Eph. 5:32). This Christian meaning of marriage, far from diminishing the profoundly human value of the marital union of man and woman, confirms and strengthens it (cf. Mt from 19:3-12. Mk 10:6-9). "
And then about homosexual relationships:
"There are absolutely no grounds to establish analogies between homosexual unions and God's plan over marriage and the family, not even in a broader sense. Marriage is holy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law. [...] They  are not  to be approved in any case.
Homosexual relationships are condemned in Scripture as a serious depravity ... (cf. Rom 1:24- 27;. 1 Cor 6,10; 1 Tim 1:10). This judgment of Scripture does not allow the conclusion that all those who suffer from this anomaly are personally responsible, but testifies that homosexual acts are not in themselves in order. This moral judgment is found in many Christian writers of the first centuries, and was unanimously accepted by Catholic Tradition. "

Homosexual acts "Cry Out to  in Heaven for Vengeance"

Homosexual relationships are among the four deadly sins or  sins "outrageous", as the Catechism of Pope John Paul II. Is, or sins "crying out to  heaven for vengeance", as it says in the Catechism of St. Pius X.
Today there are in the Catholic Church, at least that of the so-called West, a tendency to simply suppress this part of Catholic doctrine. The one part is no longer talks about it and thus escapes further criticism from without the church further and homosexuals. Another part adopts the position of the secular world and the homosexuals. Parallel to this is homosexuality, including its branches, of pedophilia and ephebophilia, which have become an internal problem of the Church.

Ambiguous Signals from Pope Francis on Homosexuality

Pope Francis has so far sent out mixed signals  in terms of homosexuality. On the one hand he severely criticized the gender theory several times.  On April 15, 2015, he  wondered at the general audience "whether the so-called gender theory is not an expression of frustration and resignation, which aims at the eradication of sexual difference, because they no longer understand, to confront it. We risk here, to take a step backwards. The displacement of the differences is the problem, not the solution."  Earlier this year, said the Pope in Manila of "a new ideological colonization, the attempt to destroy the family." Specifically, he criticized the international institutions that bind financial loans for States for the introduction of "gay marriage".
On the other hand, he  also made the famous-infamous phrase of his pontificate: "Who am I to judge?"  It's a sentence that has been widely abused by homosexual and homophilic circles to justify homosexuality and the legalization of "gay rights". Although this use of the sentence has not escaped the Vatican, it has not been corrected by Pope Francis. At least not in a sufficiently understandable and clarifying extent because  the abuse continues.
Homosexual organizations introduce King Mwanga II. as an example that homosexuality also belongs "to Africa". The example of martyrdom for the purity of Charles Lwanga and his companions was an important factor in the successful fight against AIDS by the Ugandan government. To the western contraceptive mentality, the government opposed in collaboration with the Christian churches chastity and continence. In the late 1980s nearly 30 percent of the population were infected with HIV, while their number fell in 2004 to 6 percent. The successful method is liked neither by the UN population experts nor the abortion lobby or the Western media, which is why very little was known internationally about the "miracle on Lake Victoria" in the fight against AIDS.

No Place is More Appropriate than Namugongo to Speak a Word of Clarification on Homosexuality

No site would be more appropriate than Namugongo with the grave of Saint Charles Lwanga and his companions, who suffered martyrdom because of the defense of their chastity, to speak a word of clarification on homosexuality and to raise his voice for the whole world to hear. It's a subject that should be made a "priority" of world politics in  circles external to the Church. Above all, it would be the appropriate place to correct that controversial sentence that weighs on this pontificate and on the whole Church since the return flight from Rio de Janeiro in late July 2013: "Who am I to judge?"

You say that hardly anyone in Europe knows about this. I would suggest that most practising Catholics do know about it. However the BBC and the media generally do not mention it for obviously perverse reasons and regrettably the Catholic Herald in its coverage was too cowardly to mention it.

The Catholic Herald has been subverted.

The entire official established "Concilliar Church" was subverted beginning in the early 50's and culminating in Dec.1965.Not being rude but their revolution is moving into the next phase.The idea of your local dioceses and everyone/everything associated with it living acting praying and worshipping as Catholics did for centuries is something we will not live to see happen.(in my opinion I could be wrong)The average establishment "catholic" has,in general,absolutely zero clue or idea the largest most destructive coup in history took place in the 1950's/1960's.

A word of clarification on this issue in regard to Islam. My sibling just returned from a second tour of Afghanistan as a civilian contractor. The Islamic holy day is Friday with half of Saturday fulfilling the holy day. The work week goes from there. Sunday is nothing special.----On the night before, there is a phenomenon called "man love" Thursday. Men and women are kept sequestered and the males react like they are in prison with same sex relationships. I asked this sibling about sex with children. The answer was yes. The addition was to read the "kite rider" which is about relationships in Afghanistan.----The West is mushrooming into a "gay society". There is nothing to be hidden. It is widely accepted. Gays are viewed as super intelligent and liberated. The Church is losing its way.
