Many Ethiopia believe the fight against homosexuality is a merely a ‘religious affair’. They say we need to fast and pray. I agree with that. But I think if we need to get our answer, we need to work with God. There needs to be a push to legislative and political arena.
That begins by understanding the ‘political agenda’ behind this. I think the political force behind this is the USA and UK. This people don’t understand religion they know how to play politics. As the saying goes , “the one who has the money sets the tunes” (lol) That is exactly what Obama is doing. Take a look at His Tuesday’s memorandum:
“The struggle to end discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons is a global challenge, and one that is central to the United States commitment to promoting human rights. I am deeply concerned by the violence and discrimination targeting LGBT persons around the world — whether it is passing laws that criminalize LGBT status, beating citizens simply for joining peaceful LGBT pride celebrations, or killing men, women, and children for their perceived sexual orientation. That is why I declared before heads of state gathered at the United Nations, “no country should deny people their rights because of who they love, which is why we must stand up for the rights of gays and lesbians everywhere.” Under my Administration, agencies engaged abroad have already begun taking action to promote the fundamental human rights of LGBT persons everywhere. Our deep commitment to advancing the human rights of all people is strengthened when we as the United States bring our tools to bear to vigorously advance this goal.”
