In Uganda this week comes the terrible story of Jeniffer, an activist who was beaten and left for dead. So the Daily Extra story tells (clicky). I wish I could just scoop them all up, all of them and bring them here, to the UK to somewhere safer. But they continue to push forward for the freedom just to exist. As a Christian it is my moral duty to help where I can all those in need or those who are persecuted. For me that includes everyone, my Muslim brother, my gay sister, because, after all, we are all human beings. Please support them if you can financially or with your prayers. (clicky)

I just cannot understand why people cannot let others  just live their lives in peace. Bizarre.

Anyway, over to Russia where the pressure is increasing, they are even getting to the point they will be submitting LGBT people to ex-gay therapy, something that has been tried massively in the UK/US and other countries. RUSSIA WE HAVE TRIED IT, IT DOES NOT WORK. Stop persecuting your citizens and instead of destroying, why not build up.

Oddly, the Russian anti-gay movement is NOT founded out of any sort of religious background. But simply out of prejudice. Their reasons do remain a mystery for me as the country was originally communist, with the core value that all people are equal. Much like the US constitution. Please like the Russian LGBT network Facebook page. (clicky)

I just hope one of our governments can help change things for all the LGBT people in the world. But meanwhile, I will be doing what I can. We cannot sit by and watch others suffer in this way.
