Ending 2009 and welcoming 2010 ,You mus NOT Quit !

When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but do not quit.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.

Loneliness and Depression, can lead you to murder innocents?

There are so many stories around the Globe now but there’s this one story that had changed events globally from the way we talk and interact with people in both virtual world (online world) and physically.

The story of a younger Nigerian man believed to be aged 24 (other media houses quote 25) whom journalists branded to be brave intelligent, younger, handsome from a class A section of people in Nigeria who chose to blow up a plane while enroute to Detroit, Michigan on 25th December 2009.

He tried to bomb a plane taking 278 passengers and 11 crew members. As a result, travelers are now facing tough security screening and delays on airport on addition to reporting three hours before the flight....all this headache is a result of this Islamic fool.

Although I have read a lot about this failed terror act, I prevented myself from discussing Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab with my online friends who are asking me what I think especially the skeptics, atheists and rational thinkers. This morning as I was talking with one of the strong atheist reader of this blog, he wrote to me how “deeply” he was sympathising with the Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab” because of what he went through during his teenage age”. And that if it was not loneliness and depression that this murderer faced, he would not have chosen to be a serial killer (or mass murderer) of this kind. Apparently the New York Times and all major media houses, wrote on December 29, 2009 that the bomber suffered loneliness and depression.

To me this is garbage. I cannot even tolerate this kind of belief. I have lived alone for the last 24 years, on streets, ate in trash, was and am still lonely, was in depression, had no one to talk to, have no family or friends, even now, am alone, I talk to no one apart from my online friends but I never thought of killing anyone for that, not even my mum who dumped me at the age of 6 months, not even my fathers who exchanged me like pan cakes! In fact, during these rough times of my life, I longed for death myself. There are times where I wanted to commit suicide. But never at anytime, thought of harming anyone else. When I read the allegations of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and the comments of my atheist reader, my nerves went up and were in shock since I couldn’t expect any sympathy from an atheist to that bomber.

Now, I would like to examine and put some questions for you to answer. If this terrorist claims to having done what he did as a result of loneliness and depression, why didn’t he:

1) Try to kill his family who is part of his problem?
2) Why didn’t he kill Nigerians in his home village?

Did Americans contribute to his depression and loneliness hence killing them?
What crime did the other nationals on the flight commit to deserve death, simply because they are not Moslems?

The Qur'an from its beginning to it’s end, is teaching murder, wrath and war to those who don’t believe in it, so this Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab did what he was doing to defend his Islam which is a terror theory. Moslems start getting training of murdering their opponents at the age of 7 days, so how do you expect anyone to change when they grow up?

Someone said that, he blames his parents for teaching him religion, it sounds to be true, but Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was and is now a grown up man who can make right choices and decisions. He was educated and intelligent, meaning that he do have the capacity to think rationally. Actually, it’s this rational part of thinking that made him know that killing his father and fellow Nigerians will look bad, so he rather kill Americans and other Nationals of different countries!

Take it from me, with no fear of Moslems, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was following the true teaching of the Qur'an and now that he knows how the world will point to the true Quranic teachings that he presents dejection and loneliness as a scapegoat to drive criticism away from his religion, in other words, he is defending Islam by pointing to depression, and he had been successful on that having won the compassion of my atheist friend.

Finally, I would like you to examine Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as an Islamic bomber not as a Nigerian, for I do have several Nigerians that I know to be good citizens of this planet and peace loving, caring and respecting others.

Readers are invited to respond with your opinions about the bomber and what I wrote


There was going to be a session of Parliament of Religions in Melbourne Australia from 3-9th December 2009. Being an atheist,I had a desire to attend and that meant paying for registration and hotel accommodation before the organizers could send me the invitation that I can use to support my visa application at the Australian High Commission in Nairobi Kenya.(For your knowlegde, "High Commission" refers to all foreign missions in Commonwealth group and if a nation is not a member of that group,then it's foreign missions in a given Country is referred to as the "Embassy") So Uganda and Australia are both members of Commonwealth.Then why should i need a visa travel there? Why should a Ugandan need a viss to enroute through London and only stopping at airport? What are the benefits of Commonwealth? Who are the benefieceries? The list of Questions is endless.

Am a poor,oppressed guy in Kampala as a result of my stand against organized religions, state sponsored homophobia and many issues that the society think are un-debatable, I and my friend who is also poor like me thought that it could be great if we try to secure a visa to Australia and thereafter seek asylum. My friend who I will call MA in this post skeptically with less confidence offered me the only money that he had saved for a very long time. We calculated the idea and our nerves and minds confirmed that I will get a visa simply because,i have seen many people,who are like me using the same procedure and they get the sticker in their travel document.

The requirements of securing a visa to another Country by an African are harder and almost the same across all diplomatic missions in Africa. Securing a visa from US and EU diplomatic missions in Africa, it’s like thinking of becoming the photocopy of the internet entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth, the first African to tour space after paying 25 million dollars to Space Adventures, Ltd in April 2002.The chances of this this to come true are slim.

This was going to be almost my sixth time attempting to seek a visa. The first attempts failed and I was determined to be prepared this time not to face another disappointment. I tried seeking whatever it takes to meeting the requirements and as poor as am, this meant spending more money on things that you don't know where its going to be of great importance but in the same way, you hate to receive a no from the so called world governors (read western democracies) of this planet. So I choose to inject the money. If you live in Kampala and you have tried seeking visas from a poor back-ground foundation,you know what am talking about.

Having paid my three figure amount of money to the organizers of the Parliament of religions summit, they sent the confirmations to me. I collected the application from the immigrations website, filled them, secured the appointment in Nairobi, I set my day of departure from Kampala on 15th November 2009 and it was going to take 10 full workings days to know my fate.

I boarded the bus in Kampala at 2:30pm; I took pictures because I borrowed a camera from a friend. I was very worried about the accidents. I last traveled to Nairobi in 2007,the road was very bad, deep gravely potholes that could easily torn into pieces your spinal code, I was really anxious not knowing what will happen on addition of the tougher bandits on the way. When we arrived in Jinja, my senses came to its normal position because the road in this area was good and it gave me confidence it might had been repaired now and I had no reason to worry.

I sat on Seat Number 6 together with a chatty well behaving Ugandan called Joseph Mugerwa whose ancestral home is Kinoni in Masaka, currently a businessman dealing in garments and Stationery, being a Muganda, I automatically knew that Mugerwa was belonging to a Monkey clan and according to our customs and beliefs, those who belong there have a very special place within the Monarchy administration. Read about Buganda Kingdom if you want to know more.

Also on seat number four, there was an Asian mostly likely to be from Pakistan. I said hello to him, and gave him my camera to take a picture of me. The driver was a strong built-in guy, very brown and resembled Somalis so much, he played loud music in the bus and smoked a lot, but also he looked to be kind and generous. The music was so loud to the deafening sound and he could not hear any complain but again, his passengers seemed used to him and felt okay with it. almost smoke two packets of Cigarettes from Kampala to Nairobi.

The journey was full of roadblocks almost every 30 minutes and they get us off and on to do their security. This was very tiresome. We talked a lot with Mugerwa from politics to religions to women, and I agree I liked him and his views, he was a strong liberal catholic but no longer going to church, I was alarmed when he told me he has more than five women and had had babies from women of all walks of life and that he thinks to make more babies and he also felt sad for me for not being married and not having kids.

This is another problem am facing in Uganda, people demanding me kids even when it’s clearly in the glass that Uganda and the entire planet cannot support the high populations, its only a few people who can know this. About 6,800,000,000 humans currently inhabit this planet, increasing at 142 per minute, therefore its being idiot of me to add more babies when I know the risk and problems we are going to face in less than 20 years. Every year about 75,000,000 new humans compete for space, food and water, mostly in unhealthy, overcrowded, polluted cities. This human increase is mirrored by a corresponding decrease in other living organisms,65 species of which become extinct every day, seriously undermining the ability of nature to sustain us. Water is becoming scarce and food too expensive for increasing numbers of people as demand outstrips supply.

Every day, hectares of forest are cleared, land becomes desert, and 70 million tones of CO2 are released into the atmosphere to cope with the increasing affluence and effluence of burgeoning populations. Everyone is nervous about impending catastrophe, but governments and the organized religions are not addressing the primary cause of the problem, overpopulation. Why? Because they need to curry favour with religious power-brokers in exchange for political support. I will not be part of this. I want a free and safer world with more pleasant air to breath in for all living creatures.

Mugerwa expressed his concerns for the Asian and many Ugandans felt insecure because of him on the bus. I think you know why! (Because most of the people from that side of the planet are Moslems and this qualifies them to be terrorists)

We arrived at the Busia Uganda border at 7:05 PM and it was raining, so we took like 20 minutes without alighting off the bus, it was so heavy but given the long lines of people on the immigrations waiting exits stamps and approval, we forced our way out of the bus through the rain and then into the packed immigrations office, I didn't have time and chance to take a picture even though I really admired it.

I didn't have a pen to fill the departure forms, so I begged a lady whom I cannot recall who responded positively. This is the same thing that happened to Kenya side after walking through the No man's land in rain, it took me 40 minutes to pass-through of this, apparently the operators of the bus I used told us to be as quick as we can that they may be leaving Busia at 7;30pm. to Nairobi .Look for my next edition of this journey.

Love,what does it really mean?

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy.
It does not boast.
It is not proud.
It is not rude.
It is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered.
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

Eating out in Kampala

I do prepare my food always at home, but once in a while, when I get out of home, I find myself feeling extremely hungry and with no way out, I look for a way out from the bad joints of Kampala interiors to eat the bad prepared food that sometimes cause my tummy to protest my decisions.

Last Wednesday, a not well-known friend invited me to town and ended up to this place called U restaurant where I see many Kampalanians hang for food daily. In fact, U is one of the high rated restaurants and this makes it very expensive, its owner almost appears weekly in the daily media for no particular reason but to promote his business, this was my second time to this place. I sat in there just watching people enjoying their food; I took a bottle of coke only.

The U restaurant might be expensive as you may be aware, but the kitchens are terrible. Just open sheds with fired burning in the metal rims of trucks and large drums of food boiling on top. It is hot and dangerous and very unsanitary. The fish and meat and vegetables are cut up on a not too clean surface, and then when it’s all cooked the poor servants have to carry the huge and heavy containers up stairs and into the restaurants... I would not like to eat the food... I'd be frightened of getting diarrhea.

I didn’t get out of my little house; I spent what most people call a holy day at home, lonely and depressed as usual thinking of how religion had been greatest destroyer of happiness and peace of mind for centuries and no religionists can understand it. That’s why they embrace deception and hypocrisy from the religious institutions over and over.

Am out of here, watch out who is next to you.


Here is my speech if i had have made it to the first European Humanist Forum that took place in 15th this December 2007 but i never attended. Please read what i wrote to the participants.

Friends, it is great to know that you are all here for this event and am sure there are some freinds from Africa.It is sad that there are a bigger discrimination when it comes to travel between Africans and other continents to Europe or USA. People from Europe and USA enters Africa as they want however they stop most of us to travel by denying us visas no matter if you have met all the requirements they asked but sadly still,they don't tell you why your Visa was denied.This means something to me.

And that brings me right to what I want to share with you today - my thoughts on what steps we need to take next to continue that progress in the struggle for equality to all people of this Globe. We have seen LGBT rights become a much greater worldwide issue now.

Previously, gay people in a number of countries were mainly concerned with the battle for freedoms in their own countries.Now that an increasing number of countries offer fundamental freedoms,many are now turning their attention to the plight of people in our countries, and this is both an opportunity and a problem.

The more pressure seems to come from outside the country and still not within, the more homosexuality is blamed on being a'western' disease that people claim is alien to our own cultures. We know this is not true, but how can we protest effectively if we are still living in secret, in hiding? And so the purpose for my talk today is to encourage ourselves, as leaders of LGBT people around the world and in Africa especially, to consider what is for most of us an important question at one time or other: Coming Out.

For those of you who think of your cultural and political environment and think, "No way", let me give you a number of reasons why this is important for advancing our cause.

1) For an LGBT community to have a visible leader sends a powerful message to people living in our countries or regions. Remember that many of us have grown up being told repeatedly that people like us are evil and unworthy, and many will have low self-esteem.

It helps us all to have role models, and to have someone like us being out and visible can be a massive confidence booster to those who still doubt whether they are even valid human beings..

2) People fear the unknown, especially if its there is an apparent danger that this 'foreign' thing might come to their own land.Right now Grenada is debating whether to allow gay cruise ships to dock for a few hours, in case the Island becomes 'infected and over-run with gayness'. That's because most of the population don't realise there are already about the same proportion of LGBT people there as anywhere else because they are too invisible.

Has anyone everseen any science fiction 'B' movies from the 1950's such as 'Plan 9 from Outer Space', and seeing people running screaming when some creature walks towards them? You'd only need to replace the word 'alien' with 'homosexual' and the film could apply to many countries in Africa right now - "Oh my God - a homosexual - and it's coming towards us - DO SOMETHING!! DO SOMETHING!!"

We need to show people we aren't treatening to arrive - we're already here, we already alive among you and we've been here for centuries - and we aren't dangerous unless threatened.The key point here is that fear of us is only possible with ignorance. When we are able to undermine the fear by people's awareness that close proximity to us is not dangerous, then it enables people's minds to open up to understanding us even better.

3)People's perceptions of us are often highly influenced by our own perceptions of ourselves. If the leading representatives of LGBT people in our countries are out, proud and confident, it sends a powerful message that we are comfortable with who we are and WE believe we are valid human beings. By contrast if the even the leading lights of the LGBT community are scared to identify themselves, the rest of the population will not respect us much either.

4)It creates a focal point for the international community to changes and events in society in our countries. It gives media a recognisable contact point to accept. The media loves a recognisable figurehead Points to consider Taking that step to come out for our countries is a big decision. You can't easily go back into the closet once you've come out.

It's a one-way trip. So there are some criteria that need to be considered before you take that step. In particular, if you are the only openly gay person in your country or your region, people will regard you as being representative of all LGBT people. Therefore, it is important that it works not just for you, but for everyone.

1)Are you someone who finds it easy to hold opinions on matters such as great moral issues,that are different from everybody else, or do you find yourself agreeing with the majority for safety? Does your judgement about right and wrong come from deep inside, or what the majority thinks? A key requirement of someone who is to lead openly is that they must be firm in their convictions that people's sexual orientation is their valid right, regardless of what religious leaders or politicians say, or even thugs may say to your face. You must feel as valid a person as the highest official in the land who condemns you, because many people will judge you on how, deep down, you feel about yourself.

2)Do you find being in the public eye uncomfortable, even over non-controversial issues? To be an effective leader you need to accept you will be not so much stepping on to the platform to speak to a friendly crowd, but stepping into the arena where the lions have already been released, with a largely hostile crowd, with the world's media watching. Its your job, over time, to wow the crowd and slowly bring them round to our way of thinking. We must be someone that, even if they don't agree with us, they at least begin to respect.

3)Are we of even temper, able to remain calm and in full control of ourselves when our opponents try to provoke us? For they will. As we have seen with many politicians or public people in different countries, when our opponents (and we must include many of the media among them for now) find an emotionally vulnerable flaw in our character, it may be manipulated mercilessly.

We need to be able to withstand taunts and character assassinations as if we were Nelson Mandela. He had the dignity and stature of a president even when he was imprisoned, and that's how he made that remarkable and almost unprecedented journey directly from prisoner to president. That is the stature we need to emulate.

4)Are we well versed in the justification of how we are, from a variety of different perspectives? Not just human rights, which if people regard us as being less than human, it's a weak justification to them. We need to know and be able to argue strongly against the religious arguments in particular, which are most commonly used against us in Africa.

We need to be familiar with the sociological evidence that we are not any more likely to harm children than heterosexuals that we can quote it against others who accuse us of being a danger to children. It may help us if we are aware of the scientific literature that indicates our sexuality is determined by the time we are born and is not 'chosen' or the result of a corrupting environment.

It may assist your arguments against those who claim being gay is 'against nature' if we have read about some of the higher-order social animals who have a variety of sexualities among them.And who are not homophobic.

5) Is our past clean? By that I mean is our past honourable?Are there skeletons in our closet? Do we have a past that would embarrass others who are LGBT if it were to become public. For sure, people will try to find anything to discredit us. And, as I have found, if it doesn't exist they will make it up.

6)Are we good at inspiring courage and cooperation with others? If have a habit of causing disagreements and opposition with people who are supposedly on our side, we will find it difficult to lead effectively. We need to be able to persuade people to work with us willingly behind the scenes for no glory except the satisfaction of having contributed to an overall victory at some unspecified point in the future.

We need to be able to work out people's individual strengths, weaknesses and motivations to get them to help achieve collective goals in cooperation with each other. And we need to have a clear focus and determination to succeed. It sounds as though we need to be an exemplary people who has personal qualities way beyond the ordinary mortal. To an extent, this is true, but in a way that is because the standard of the ordinary mortal is pretty low, which is why we are in the mess we are in now.

In reality we can only do our best, and for our standard and quality of behaviour, as long as we have stars to aim at, then the chances are we will hit higher than those around you. A key point is to keep improving what we do.

How to make leading from outside the closet work for ourselves or our group

1)We need to know who our supporters and enemies are around us. Before coming out to the world, come out to our friends and family, so that we know who we can count on when we need support. We MUST have either a close group of people around us or a partner who encourage and support us wholeheartedly, even when we feel beaten down by the opposition, so that in our weakest moments they are there for you.

2)Remember that leadership is not a one person acting by themselves but is a team effort with one person as the figurehead. There are a variety of skills required amongst the leadership, which means including the people around and ourselves: These include the ability to prepare press releases that will be taken up by gay media or gay frinedly medias

The ability to network amongst other groups to get moral and practical support; If we can find anyone who is good at fundraising, they will be a god-send, but we must be prepared to work on very little funding. Having someone who understands effective publicity and public relations is vital.

And we must pay as much attention to encouraging and nurturing grass-roots support as you do for high-profile approaches to international media.

3)Build up contacts in international gay-oriented or gay-friendly media so that we have an outlet for news stories. Ensure that the world is watching events in our countries, and that very bad behaviour by opponents is so well reported that it reflects on the reputation of the country. And be prepared to produce responses to local events promptly and accurately so that we and our groups are regarded as a reliable source of information.

4)If your group already exists and is known to an extent, use coming out as an excuse to re-launch or re-brand, making it clear you are stepping up a gear.

5)When high profile opponents, such as political or religious leaders issue attacks on us in the media, respond promptly and accurately so that we are always there with a response. However big our enemy is, if we are able to respond with a quality reply, it can seem like a battle between equal opponents to the media, who love reporting a fight.

The size of our enemy may become an advantage if, by the coverage given to both of us, we can appear to be as strong or stronger in our arguments compared to them. Remember, that truth of our validity withstands scrutiny, whereas their false claims about us do not, and that makes their lies easy to expose.

6)When people attack you personally or LGBT people in general, publicly challenging and ridiculing their attack weakens it. Appearing to relish the challenge and, instead of being weakened by an attack but appearing to be made stronger by it instead provokes respect, because ultimately we are all animals at some level, and animals respect strength in someone they regard as an opponent.

7)Always be willing to expose the hypocrisies and flaws in enemies as they will attempt to do to undermine us. Especially if we pick up their flaws and weaknesses that are already known to their own supporters, then we will find our own enemy's supporters recognising truth in what we say and by such means we may divide our enemy, thus weakening further their attacks on us. We may find it helpful to link issues around LGBT rights to other oppressive denial of human rights for the general opposition in the population that many people will recognise and support.

It is helpful to find ways in which we have common ground with our enemy against someone else, such as political authorities. This is the approach taken by Christian and Moslem religious leaders who find common ground with each other by uniting to fight against us.

Finding common ground with the majority population by picking up issues of fraud, corruption, police brutality and oppression of other basic freedoms and aligning our aims with those of the general population can undermine the popular base of attacks by authority on us. As the old political saying goes, "Anyone who is the enemy of my enemy, is my friend".

8)Constant presence is important, because fear is fuelled by ignorance. Over time, constant reminders of our un-threatening presence among people undermines their fear of the 'foreign and unknown'. When homosexuality is a constant topic in the media, then even when the content of the topics is threatening or 'anti', gradually the fear among the population declines simply through the constant exposure to it. When people are no longer afraid, then they are able to use the critical faculties once more.

Where does this lead us?

We must not make any mistakes - taking a public stand is not easy and there are real threats to those who make themselves known. We may have to take avoiding action and live in exile for a period of time, as I have had to do. Luckily with the increasing ease of communicating electronically, we can still lead from afar, and our leadership team may consist of individuals who are geographically remote from each other.

These days it is considerably easier to reach the critical mass needed to become an effective movement for social change.The costs of not stepping forward can be crippling. To fail to step up to grasp the nettle when the opportunity occurs is to remain closed in our own prison cell. As Nelson Mandela remarked,
"Eventually oppression by others can become self-oppression".

To boldly step forward is to become in perhaps a small way at first, a world leader. The big rewards will be a long time coming, but each day overall in the world things become easier. There is hardly a day goes by when either social, political or legal progress is not made somewhere in the world, and sometimes even in the most unexpected places.

Yes, there are bad days when things take a step backwards, but these will not be sustained. In the long term they will prove to be a futile reaction to progress around elsewhere.When people barricade themselves in with sandbags against the rising water,the water just finds another way in.

Only today we have learnt that Grenada has backed down over banning gay cruises visiting, because the adverse publicity while they were deliberating on the issue has caused a number of cancellations. People are beginning to realize we are a commercial force to be reckoned with.If we participate in this international move towards greater equality, justice and freedom then in years to come we will not have to wonder what could have been if we had failed.

One of the people I count on as being part of my team said one of the things that had the most impact on him in his life was learning that, in interviews, very few old people regret what they did. But most old people massively regret what they did not do that they could have done.

I hope you will join me in not only not regretting, but being proud,of what we have done, by being able to look back in future years and being proud of what we have done.

Oppressive laws and official campaigns against us,Lack of information about us in the society,Negative media publication Deep culture and religious disapproval, Risk of social isolation and violence Absence of safe meeting places and financial support also affected and still affects us more and will continue to be available if we don't play our part.

Therefore, it's inside this movement that modern LGBTs are called to journey today! We need to journey as those seeking our own identities. We journey as men and women in search of our wholeness for one another and ourselves for freedom from the distortions of our prejudices, fears, treats and angers.

We look those things that both define us; Sex, Family, Tribe and Religion. We look at the arenas of our competition in the never-ending struggle for survive, rights and for freedoms.

Thank you

The strengthen and wonders of Science in this age

Often when we talk about the marvels of science, we think of the "heavens" and wonder where we came from. The wonders of science can be seen through the lens of microscopes, from the actions of amino acids in the presence of sunlight, etc.

If you go here: you will see, in 3D, the double-helix of DNA. Beautiful and fascinating.

So far, the projected cost of American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan/Pakistan goes over the two trillion dollar figure. In their (Americans) system of numbering, there are a thousand million in one billion, and a thousand billion in one trillion.

Cost comparisons have been made several times by the Congressional Budget Committee and I learned that USA spend just a small fraction for its space programs in comparison to the mind-boggling waste in military spending.

Like we Africans,most Americans are not very interested in science, they're interested in religion and being saved. They're afraid of the Vietnamese or the Soviets or the Iraqis or Iranians or the Martians and they vote for pro-war representatives.

The result is that America doesn't invest so much in science which might interfere with Intelligent Design or Creationist ideas. See, if they invested their money into science programs, like more rapidly developing solar and alternative energy sources, and space programs, etc., this might cause their youth to do more thinking and they might turn into a bunch of godless atheists!

But even with their little investment in the Hubble Telescope, You can see about the universe. It's beautiful and causes one to think--what is this? Why is that the way it is?

Holy Mary Recalling that day when she cheated on Joseph and had sex with God

Unholy row over New Zealand Mary and Joseph billboard
Mary and Joseph billboard from St Matthew-in-the-City church in Auckland
The billboard is intended to challenge the stereotypes of the Christmas conception story, but it has been described as offensive to Christians

An unholy row has broken out in New Zealand over a church billboard aimed at "challenging stereotypes" about the birth of Jesus Christ.

A dejected-looking Joseph lies in bed next to Mary under the caption, "Poor Joseph. God was a hard act to follow".

St Matthew-in-the-City Church in Auckland, which erected the billboard, said it had intended to provoke debate.

But the Catholic Church, among others, has condemned it as "inappropriate" and "disrespectful".


More from BBC World Service

Within hours of its unveiling, the billboard had been defaced with brown paint.

The church's vicar, Archdeacon Glynn Cardy, said the aim of the billboard had been to lampoon the literal interpretation of the Christmas conception story.

"What we're trying to do is to get people to think more about what Christmas is all about," he told the New Zealand Press Association (NZPA).

"Is it about a spiritual male God sending down sperm so a child would be born, or is it about the power of love in our midst as seen in Jesus?"

The billboard was defaced within hours of its unveiling

He told NZPA that the church had received e-mails and phone calls about the controversial image.

"About 50% said they loved it, and about 50% said it was terribly offensive," he said. "But that's out of about 20 responses - this is New Zealand."

But Lyndsay Freer, spokeswoman for the Catholic Diocese of Auckland, said the poster was offensive to Christians.

"Our Christian tradition of 2,000 years is that Mary remains a virgin and that Jesus is the son of God, not Joseph," she told the New Zealand Herald. "Such a poster is inappropriate and disrespectful."

The family values group Family First said any debate about the Virgin birth should be held inside the church.

"To confront children and families with the concept as a street billboard is completely irresponsible and unnecessary," Family First director Bob McCroskrie told the news website

Very sorry that the picture on the billboar failed to load!!! Sorry indeed

I think the billboard should be put up again--but this time, guarded 24 hours a day for one week by people armed with digital cameras. Violence should be avoided. If a nation is serious about Freedom of Speech and Press rights--and this would include billboards--there should be laws against defacing a billboard. During the first day, there should have been two volunteers in cars with digital cameras with good batteries so make sure the flash attachment will work if the defacer works at night. Have cell phones ready for the police to arrest the man, make sure to get the person's license number. If he removes his license plate beforehand, have him arrested for driving without a license plate affixed as required by law. When the person has been identified, file a lawsuit against him.

I see an example of how wars--as between Serbians and Kosovars--start over religion.

As for this sentence: "The family values group Family First said any debate about the Virgin birth should be held inside the church."

Wouldn't it be nice if all debates of a religious nature would be held in churches, including those about abortion and GLBT rights. There should be NO laws regarding abortion or who goes to bed with whom, or how and when an individual decides to end their lives. Nonetheless, religionists ram their superstitious beliefs down our throats, first by electing religious personnel to public office who then introduce bills of a religious nature and, with the cooperation of other religious law-makers, pass laws of a religious nature.

So why not vote for secularists seeking public office? We atheists must educate the public so that those who express their religious inclinations are not voted for by 51% of the electorate. Yes, those who run for public office may exercise their freedom of speech, but those who vote can also exercise their freedom by not voting for religious office-seekers--through the secret ballot.

In the U.S., they've been trying to get citizens to understand the principles of separation of state from church, that they don't elect Christian displays on public property which is maintained by everyone's tax dollars. This idea, after more than 200 years, is finally sinking in. And yet, in Illinois, the message hasn't gotten through. This Christian display makes Jews, Moslems, Hindus and atheists feel like they're not first class citizens. Yet they can't allow all religious groups to fill up government space with their religious displays. For a secular nation, as they are supposed to be, no religious displays should be allowed

Previously I wrote on my experience in Mulago Hospital in Kampala Uganda. I have done so much, boarded many border-borders (mean of transport to get by quickly in Kampala using motorcycles).I had spent more money on going and coming out of Mulago which I do not have anyway. I have paid for my dentures two weeks ago and every time I do been there, dentists retake measurements. They always find a reason for that. But they also had something common that they complained about” They all complained about how nurses and fellow dentists steal the Mulago Hospital properties, in this case I mean the plates that they use to take measurements of dentures. They also complained on how they are being underpaid. How they lack resources.

All the times I do been they, they used oversized plates, they done it in fear that what if the dentures doesn’t fit in. But as professionals, they always know how to fix it. So last Wednesday I was at the place, they took measurements again and made an appointment to pick them today 23 December 2009.

I didn’t have a very good sleep, I do been sick from malaria and some running stomach which I had no idea on the cause of it. Well I didn’t recall that today was Wednesday until when I scrolled through my phone look for a number to call, and then I saw that note in my drafts about attending the dentist. It was now 12 midday and the dentist clinic closes at 12:30, I boarded a border-border and rushed to Mulago. I arrived there 15 minutes before closing; they rushed me to the waiting room as if I was a victim of a fatal accident.

They brought the dentures in a black cup, they fit in right and they all smiled as if they had saved someone from death. I did experience some kind of this on 16th Feb 2009 when I had a hernia surgery in Mityana hospital. Doctors there also most operate patients on nothing. Ugandan hospitals do not have equipments and medical personals are underpaid yet those in political offices rob sums of money.

That evening was good for both of me and my day ended well but a little bit of disappointed by the hospital. I have visited. In early August 2008, I visited Mengo Hospital. They charged me lot of money just for examination and told me to pay a huge amount of money for the Hernia Surgery, they are the one who wanted me to pay the 450000 UGX but since I had no money, I left while my money for examination was taken.

It took me much time to just save that money. And in the end, the examination result paper got lost when I went to see the Doctor who will handle my case, am not good on shouting, so I kept quite as they check the results papers and after an hour or more, the results was no where to be seen. So I left for home without them. You can read about Mengo Hospital on the link below

I made my decisions that I will go for that surgery in Mulago hospital, but also I knew that the situation was more worse than Mengo where I sat for four hours without any attention from anyone and the hospital was crowded,.

Finally I chose Mulago.You can read about Mulago Hospital on

Mulago was Cheaper but also because I had have heard people say that, there in Mulago, you can go through a back door and prevent the queue (lines). When I arrived at Mulago hospital at 1pm that day, I felt sorry in my heart. I was exhausted and the pain of Hernia was high since I do been walking longer and longer in the city center and also on this hilly Mulago with both dust and rubbish running into my noses and eyes.

It was really terrible. It came worse when I could not find anyone to ask for directions. Its a very huge hospital, and for the first time, I spotted their website and now I knew, while it looks nice and talks good on the administration, its the opposite when you meet it. Nurses were too full of themselves and it looked as if someone forced them to join Nursing schools. Even receptionist, was not friendly to me. This sparked off my desire to check on Kadic Hospital.

At this pointed, I wanted to have a glass of water and no way I could find it, I cruised through the corridors of Mulago as if I was a tourist, passing by patients who were crowded as if Pope Benedict is opening International Youth Day anywhere near Mulago, patients who don’t knew when will they be with able to see the Doctor and who are not sure if,at all they was a chance of meeting a doctor, they will leave and go home not in a coffin(call it casket). Having suffered there, I choose to get on a taxi and head to Mityana but until I checked with several private hospitals, I won’t go to hit the road to a Mityana which was 45 kilometers from Kampala.

I arrived at the Kadic Hosptal in Bukoto at around 3pm.There was some people and few patients. In this Hospital, Nurses out numbered the patients and I immediately asked why? Later I learned that ,the only people who get to this place are of A class.

Sorry,Kadic Hospital’s website was not loading. Well, my turn came and I handed myself in the hands of Dr. HB who examined me at no cost at all.

Seeing Uganda go by from my point of view can be a very depressing existence. But once in a while, someone comes around and renews your hope. And you find a reason to love and laugh, or at least to smile. When Dr.HB told me that the examination is free, I wept in my heart and rethink my money that went to Mengo hospital just for that.

Then, I found some energy to ask him about the bills. This friendly talking Doctor told me that, the bills will differ from three things. I asked what they are. He said that " Hospital bills differ from each other even if they offer the same service, Then there's a professional fee and Medication fee. Am to take this whole service from Kadic hospital, their surgeon may charge around 2.5m Ugx and as we talked, he told me that he also operates in another medical center called City Medical Center also in Bukoto, few meters away from Kadic if not kilometers and there he said that, I go to that place, he will at least twist and charge me at around 1.9M Ugx. I waved goodbye to him and told him that I will come back.

When I left the compound of Kadic, somehow felt angry and abandoned gave a call to the Doctor in Mengo who examined me, asking him what will the 450000 cover? He replied that “that’s only surgery and no medicines, I didn't ask any more questions and my heart agreed that our country is really on the brink and went to dogs.

I loaded myself in a Taxi, as soon as I sat down, it started raining. I liked the breezes and I smiled. Somehow not sure why but the though of a lady who wanted to be attended to first before me yet I was the first came also in( I strongly believe in first come ,first serve business)
.I chose to ignore that and called it a day. The next day I was on taxi again to Mityana where the hernia was done.

The cost of living alone!

Monday, 21 December, 2009

Sometimes I just do not know how to start my writing. Other times I feel like I have lots of stories to share, but when I get on keyboard, I fail to compose any thoughts of a story to put on my blog. Sometimes, instead of writing something, I spend lots of hours simply looking at the screen of the computer, well at least spending time chatting in those java-powered chat rooms online.

Am afraid to say that am married to this machine, it's my wife, it's my brother, it's my best friend; but again, it's not equal to human beings. We are human beings, right? No matter how we live our lives and try to isolate ourselves from the society in which we live, we still end up in someone's presence, which in Uganda, is a risk to our lives. I usually ask myself when I will ever overcome isolation. Why am I on the edge of life? Why do I feel stateless? There must be something wrong with my land of enchantment--Uganda

I have lived in Uganda for all my life and learnt the ugly part of Ugandans and its ugly face of the Ugandan townships in which I have lived. As a result, I married my computer and settled in the remotest areas of the suburbs in Kampala. It's really fine to be home alone, but again, as time goes on you simply feel a need to tough a human being, to feel the warmth of belonging that you isolated yourself. If you want to know the ugly part of this Country-Uganda, You need to look no further than religion--or superstition--that has closed the mind to scientific inquiry and its results.

From early childhood, we're taught that there is a god and our devotion is oriented to "serving" and "loving" this god, or several gods, which does not encourage or enhance our love for one another as people.

We can observe the difference between a mother with one child and a mother with eight children.

A mother's love is not boundless. The mother has only so much time to devote to her offspring. The more children, the more time the mother must spend away from the family to work. The child without siblings will receive his entire mother's love, but the child with seven other siblings will receive only one-eighth of his mother's love--if that. If he's not one of mother's favourites, he may be neglected all together.

Likewise with religion. Since there is no god, then there is no love from this entity. The religious leaders want the followers to devote ALL their time to serving this god. But we're taught to pour our love into this imaginary being in order to receive "salvation" that we end up not loving each other as humans. We are forced to submit and to conform to a biblical standard, lest this god come down and strike us all dead.

It is out of fear that the religionists cannot allow anyone in their community to stray like a lost sheep, and must be picked up and brought back into the flock or the fold. Those who resist must be punished. Celebrating and enjoying our unique personalities is forbidden. The less religion in a country, the prettier the face of the people.

Aaaah, have I failed to find someone? I think not but the continuous statement of the society disregarding homosexuality and the current attempts by the state to pass a law that will criminalise homosexuals and put some to death had pushed me under my bed.

Under that bed, I think of all the campaigns I initiated to free the GLBT people in Uganda. I recall and meditate on the times I have been thrown of houses, drove off the taxis, warned by Moslems to cut off my head simply because I'm an atheist. I think of the rejection of GLBT people themselves because I refused to allow them to use me for a sex object,they were unconcerned about the political oppression gays suffer.They were concerned with their biological needs at the moment, but were not willing to take the time and the risks to up-end the political repression in Uganda.It's because of this,people like Bahati felt that since there was no political movement by gays (but that's because of oppression already), that he could get away with his hateful bill.

This rejection is a story in itself which I will post in the near future." The reason is that I find heterosexuals more attentive to politics, whereas gay people are so often mindless hedonists.

Exceptions would be Rodney Croome ,Peter Tatchell and a number of other activists. But when you group all the gay activists together, they're still only a small part of the GLBT community. So the chances of running into an intellectual gay person is slim. And those who are active, are so burdened with so many responsibilities, that they don't have time to sit down with you on a regular basis to discuss the politics of repression and how to overcome the oppression. To do so, requires activating most of those hedonistic gays. It can be really discouraging. But am an activist--at least in mind and heart. Again from my experiences, i need a friend "to walk with me" Are you the one?

It is a great pity that after the terror regime of Idi Amin, Uganda once more has become a dictatorship. I blame the British for taking no account of tribal differences and simply drawing lines on maps that suited them and calling them countries. Uganda should perhaps be at least three different countries. Africa is a very sad continent. Too many people, too much illness, too many dictators, too many problems... It's this misery that adds up to my loneliness and life becomes a prison for me here in Uganda.

Uganda is now the most religious African country and therefore the most homophobic. Since my readers are now above 50 years of age, I must say that it was wonderful to live in the 1960's and seventies when the world population was less than half it is now. Today everywhere is so crowded it is very unpleasant to live or travel, and there is an increasing threat of terrorism in my age now.

So my friend, drive your sorrow away, you had more time to enjoy life than me.

The other day I was reading an article written by a gay expert on the Christian religion. He said that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality. Well, of course, that's completely untrue. Jesus thoroughly condemned homosexuality in Leviticus and in various books in the New Testament.

But just about any expert of the Christian religion would respond by saying: "No, no, you don't understand the Holy Bible. Jesus was not featured in the Old Testament." Well, okay, not by that name, but Jesus is busy throughout the Old Testament, slaughtering multitudes, inflicting swarms of insects and drought, aborting babies, etc.

How do Christians define their god(s)? Christians tell me that their monotheistic religion (actually, it's a polytheistic religion) consists of "three gods in one." One is the father, another is the son, and another is a "holy ghost."

What is a holy ghost? I thought about that. It has to be something that can't make a whole lot of noise, so it's probably their pet cat. But anyway, all three of those gods have been described--by Christians--as "eternal."

The father, son, and their little pet always existed, but one of them, the father, decided to send his son down to earth, give him flesh and have him pretend to be a human--an act of divine deceit.

Here's what all three said about gay people: From the Good News Bible "No man is to have sexual relations with another man; God hates that."--Lev. 18:22. "Even the women pervert the natural use of their sex by unnatural acts. In the same way the men give up natural sexual relations with women and burn with passion for each other. Men do shameful things with each other, and as a result they bring upon themselves the punishment they deserve for their wrong-doing."--Romans 1:26-27.

In both of these cases, the father, the son and Fluffy are speaking with one voice--and using poor St. Paul as their press secretary--something like a dummy. Hence, Jesus, in both books of the Holy Bible, condemns homosexuality.

Dear Believer,


You asked me to consider Christianity as the answer for my life. I have done that. I consider it untrue, repugnant, and harmful.

You expect me to believe Jesus was born of a virgin impregnated by a ghost? Do you believe all the crazy tales of ancient religions? Julius Caesar was reportedly born of a virgin; Roman historian Seutonius said Augustus bodily rose to heaven when he died; and Buddha was supposedly born speaking. You don't believe all that, do you? Why do you expect me to swallow the fables of Christianity and other religious beliefs?

I find it incredible that you ask me to believe that the earth was created in six literal days; women come from a man's rib; a snake, a donkey, and a burning bush spoke human language; the entire world was flooded, covering the mountains to drown evil; all animal species, millions of them, rode on one boat; language variations stem from the tower of Babel; Moses had a magic wand; the Nile turned to blood; a stick turned into a snake; witches, wizards, and sorcerers really exist; food rained from the sky for 40 years; people were cured by the sight of a brass serpent; the sun stood still to help Joshua win a battle, and it went backward for King Hezekiah; men survived unaided in a fiery furnace; a detached hand floated in the air and wrote on a wall; men followed a star which directed them to a particular house.

Jesus walked on water unaided; fish and bread magically multiplied to feed the hungry; water instantly turned into wine; mental illness is caused by demons; a “devil” with wings exists who causes evil; people were healed by stepping into a pool agitated by angels; disembodied voiced spoke from the sky; Jesus vanished and later materialized from thin air; people were healed by Peter's shadow; angels broke people out of jail; a fiery lake of eternal torment awaits unbelievers under the earth... while there is life-after-death in a city which is 1,500 miles cubed, with mansions and food, for Christians only. Oh the list is endless.

If you believe these stories, then you are the one with the problem, not me. These myths violate natural law, contradict science, and fail to correspond with reality or logic. If you can't see that, then you can't separate truth from fantasy. It doesn't matter how many people accept delusions inflicted by “holy” men; a widely held lie is still a lie. If you are so gullible, then you are like the child who believes the older brother who says there is a monster in the hallway. But there is nothing to be afraid of; go turn on the light and look for yourself.

If Christianity were simply untrue I would not be too concerned. Santa is untrue, but it is a harmless myth which people outgrow. But Christianity and all other beliefs, besides being false, is also abhorrent. It amazes me that you claim to love the god of the bible, a hateful, arrogant,sexist, cruel being who can't tolerate criticism. I would not want to live in the same neighborhood with such a creature!

The biblical god is a macho male warrior. Though he said “Thou shalt not kill,” he ordered death for all opposition, wholesale drowning and mass exterminations; punishes offspring to the fourth generation (Ex. 20:5); ordered pregnant women and children to be ripped up (Hos. 13:16); demands animal and human blood to appease his angry vanity; is partial to one race of people; judges women to be inferior to men; is a sadist who created a hell to torture unbelievers; created evil (Is. 45:7); discriminated against the handicapped (Lev. 21:18-23); ordered virgins to be kept as spoils of war (Num. 31:15-18, Deut. 21:11-14); spread dung on people's faces (Mal. 2:3); sent bears to devour 42 children who teased a prophet (II Kings 2:23-24); punishes people with snakes, dogs, dragons, drunkenness, swords, arrows, axes, fire, famine, and infanticide; and said fathers should eat their sons (Ez. 5:10). Is that nice? Would you want to live next door to such a person?

And Jesus is a chip off the old block. He said, “I and my father are one,” and he upheld “every jot and tittle” of the Old Testament law. Mt. 5:18 He preached the same old judgment: vengeance and death, wrath and distress, hell and torture for all nonconformists. He believed in demons, angels and spirits. He never denounced the subjugation of slaves or women.

Women were excluded as disciples and as guests at his heavenly table. Except for hell he introduced nothing new to ethics or philosophy. He was disrespectful of his mother and brothers; he said we should hate our parents and desert our families. Mt. 10:35-36, Lk. 14:26 (So much for “Christian family life.”) He denounced anger, but was often angry himself.

Mt. 5:22, Mk. 3:5 He called people “fools” (Mt. 23:17,19), “serpents,” and “white sepulchers,” though he warned that such language puts you in danger of hellfire. Mt. 5:22 He said “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth. I came not to send peace, but a sword." Mt. 10:34 (So much for“Peace on Earth.”) He irrationally cursed and withered a fig tree for being barren out of season. Mt. 21:19 He mandated burning unbelievers. Jn.15:6 (The Church has complied with relish.) He stole a horse. Lk. 19:30-33 He told people to cut off hands, feet, eyes and sexual organs. Mt.5:29-30, 19:12 You want me to accept Jesus, but I think I'll pick my own friend, thank you.

One of Jesus' many contradictions was saying good works should be seen, and not seen. Mt. 5:16, 6:1-4 One of his mistakes was saying that the mustard plant has the smallest seed. Mt. 13:31-32 The writers of Matthew and Luke could not even get his genealogy straight, contradicting the Old Testament, and giving Jesus two discrepant lines through Joseph, his non-father!

I also find Christianity and other beliefs to be morally repugnant. The concepts of original sin, depravity, substitutionary forgiveness, intolerance, eternal punishment, and humble worship are all beneath the dignity of intelligent human beings and conflict with the values of kindness and reason. They are barbaric ideas for primitive cultures cowering in fear and ignorance.

Finally, Christianity and other beliefs is harmful. More people have been killed in the name of a god than for any other reason. The Church has a shameful, bloody history of Crusades, Inquisitions, witch-burnings, heresy trials, Western colonial intolerance, disrespect of indigenous traditions(such as the Baganda,You have just recalled those 22 men in Namugongo),support of slavery, and oppression of women. Modern “fruits” of religion include the Kanungu massacre, the callous fraud of “faith healers,” recent wars and ethnic cleansing, and fighting in Northern Ireland. Religion also poses a danger to mental health, damaging self-respect,personal responsibility, and clarity of thought.

Do you see why I do not respect the biblical message? It is an insulting bag of nonsense. You have every right to torment yourself with such insanity — but leave me out of it. I have better things to do with my life.I still want to enjoy my freedom from religious beliefs while celebrating this only one life that we have.

Former Church Leader.

I sometimes find myself in a place where there appears to be nothing in particular to blog about;although in reality there is a multitude of thoughts taking place in my head at the same time,none of which has been articulated to the point of lending itself to literation in a blog post.

Its as if the mind is being pulled in different directions.But thankfully, this blog exists and it provides a means by which to vent some of the emotion,the frustration and more. I think I need to learn how to concentrate on individual thoughts more consciously and do less on many issues which I am so liable.

I stay in a country where oppression,violations of human rights,strong religious beliefs are so deep.This religious stand is attached on almost everything in an African life,even when its not necessary.

Oppression of one sort or another is endemic among humans and includes parental bossiness; bullying; street violence; and systematic, institutionalised repression of groups and individuals for reasons as varied as ethnic and racial difference,intellectual superiority or inferiority,gender,religious beliefs,atheism,sexual orientation,wealth or poverty,perceived social class. Oppression matters because it diminishes us as humans and many sufferers never recover,becoming street-kids,dropouts,depressives,suicidal, substance abusers, criminals,insane.

Everyone in our society has been forced at some time or other into operating as both oppressor and oppressed. Until we understand the deeper nature of oppression,our struggle to end it will be in vain.We will continue looking for "the enemy out there" and thus carry on the long,sad history of desperate,bewildered human beings replacing dictators with tyrants; Kings and Queens with Presidents.

I stay in a small house that i pay on a monthly basis.Am the only Atheist around,i have seen people dehumanizing me,cursing me,some even attempted top poison me and this sent alerts to my brain always to be extra cautious. Some times,i feel unhappy,just for things that may neighborhood do,and whenever i try to say how if feel,am either being seen as someone who is thinks to be special.

Just imagine,music from evening to almost midnight at a loud deafening sound and you have to keep quite. My landlord and the entire neighborhood are doing nothing.Tonight i had a bad sleep as a result of loud music,when i complained,they switch power off for the tenant who was playing music and they left me with power, still my fresh crept for this as i thought,that's not the right way to handle it.As i write this,i still feel madness over that.

What would you do if you got my point? or if you are in my shoes?

Secular Government

Levi Ochieng in the Daily Monitor Janet should be honest to God and to us

The danger with using God’s name to pursue secular goals is that it begs more questions than answers. It clouds rationality. It is used as a cover up and is often a conspiracy. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Janet being politically ambitious.

It is her God-given right, but the same God requires forthright, honest and clear articulation of that right, which is also constitutional and inherent in Uganda.

Tuesday, March 17, 2009


Today 17th March 2009,It is nine years today since the horrible and devastating Kanungu massacre occurred.

On that fateful day, about 500 members of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God were burnt to death in Kinkizi county in the south-western Uganda district of Kanungu, about 50km from Rukungiri town. The victims were doused with petrol and paraffin, before being set ablaze.

Days after the inferno, six more bodies were discovered in a pit at the residence of the church leaders. Yet another 494 bodies would be found days later, under the cult’s buildings in Buhinga, Rutoma and Rukungiri.

Other buildings and mass graves were found at Rugazi, Bunyaruguru, Rushojwa and Buziga in Kampala. Pathologists’ reports showed that many of the victims were clubbed, strangled or hacked to death.

It was also believed that some of them could have been poisoned. The cult was headed by self-styled prophet, Joseph Kibwetere and ex-Roman Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Dominic Kataribaho, Credonia Mwerinde and John Kamagara. Area residents said Kibwetere had collected money from believers for a trip to Europe, in quest of a replica of the Biblical Noah’s Ark.

Two days to the massacre, the residents said, the cult members had thrown a big party for themselves. They also gathered their personal belongings and those of the church and set them ablaze in the middle of the camp. The following day, they toured the villages bidding farewell to their friends and neighbours

The sect was registered under the NGO Statute in 1997 to carry countrywide activities to observe the Ten Commandments, preach the word of Jesus Christ and Virgin Mary and provide education and health care. Well, it is close to a decade since, but nothing has yielded from condemnations and warrants of arrest issued for the leaders.

Their whereabouts is to date not known, or at least is not in the public domain. Days after the massacre, President Yoweri Museveni vowed that the Government would intensify the hunt for the cult leaders after he inspected the scene. “Forget this scandal and concentrate on building your families and improving your incomes. We shall arrest those people if they are still alive,” Museveni, said then.

The then second deputy premier and internal affairs minister, Moses Ali, in December 2000 appointed Justice Augustus Kania to head a committee to probe the massacre. But to date, the report has never been released. The massacre scene has been eaten up by a bush and unlike in the past when the place was guarded, these days it is abandoned. So, will justice also be engulfed by the ‘bushes’ as years go by? Only time will tell.

There's so many trouble's in Uganda today and millions of Ugandans continue to ask God to save them,am Atheist and i usually laugh loud for them.Here are the reasons why am Atheist.

Many people, famous and not so famous, have written at length on this title. Having read quite a number,I had never therein found another one's reasons to be sufficient in explanation.Perhaps being an Atheist is a personal choice of multiple paths or it may be that sufficient inward motivation to explain oneself has not been properly utilized.

There may be a cacophony of experiences in life which lead to an Atheistic outlook being adopted but, considering the varying degrees of ostracism which go with the territory, a deeper and more meaningful state of mind must be inherent in the whole process.If this were not the case reversion would be a far bigger percentage outcome than reality shows.Once an Atheist on intellectual grounds, always an Atheist.

"An unexamined life is not liveable for a human being," said Socrates in his own defense when charged with impiety.I agree, and lament the lack of philosophical studies in many schools. Questioning our personal attitudes and ideas from time to time, and consciously subjecting them to the spotlight of reason and logic,can prevent us lapsing into lazy acceptance of corrupt and dogmatic ideas and values imposed by those who would rule and control us.

My unbelief began at the age of 18, when I caught my Christian mentor slipping out of his Father Christmas costume. Having learned there was no Santa Claus, it was no great leap to also dismiss fairies, elves, goblins and other supernatural creatures. This was somewhat of a relief, I recall, as it increased my enjoyment of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Superman, Captain Marvel and other tales involving magical phenomena over the years, because I wasn’t obliged to believe in them.

Such fables are a painless method of instilling values, certainly more exciting than the Baptist Sunday school and bible class which, to please my American Missionary mentor, I attended until I left the congregation, before he disowned me, despite considering the teachers to be somewhat pathetic.

As Nobel Prize-winning author André Gide wrote: "The closer you get to religion, the further you get from reality." Unfortunately, I grew up seeing dogma, as a guide to good living and blessings.I see many people who believe in this dying with frustration and rejection from God since no answers being delivered after years of praying!

By the time I was 22, mere unbelief had become full-blooded atheism because I'd realised that the purpose of religion is control, and the earlier the indoctrination starts, the more mind control religions have. "Give us a child until he is four and you can do what you like with him thereafter; he will always be ours!" say the Jesuits with good reason.

Religions control their ‘flock’ by the use of fear – psychological and physical.

1. Psychological fear: By taking natural instincts such as sexuality, dancing, pleasure in eating… and declaring them to be ‘sins’, control is asserted.This is psychological torment for those who believe,and in the worst cases can result in self-abuse and suicide as the "guilty" attempt to propitiate a demanding, frightening and jealous god.This guilt is reinforced through fear of excommunication and punishment after death in hell, all at the whim of an ever-watchful and omnipotent god who knows everything, even what you’re thinking!!!

"Be afraid , be very afraid. You will be tortured by the devil for eternity unless you obey god’s will." The fact that god’s will is by no means clear,having been ‘interpreted’ in a multitude of ways by imperfect humans,and that there’s no basis either in reason or reality for these scenarios doesn’t bother the priests and ministers. "Have faith!" they cry. "God works in mysterious ways…." "god will be angry if you question his commands."

You have to admit it’s a very cunning trick. Not only is everyone born sinful, but they can never liberate themselves from that dreadful state.Even death doesn’t secure release. Unless one has abided by the church’s or mosque's rules,after death there will be torture, pain, and misery for eternity. Truly, the Judeo/Christian/Muslim religions are among the most sadistic creeds ever invented for the psychological enslavement of humankind.

2. Fear of physical force: Those who weren’t taken in by fear of an invisible warlord in the sky, have to be persuaded with less subtle means through the real and present fear of torture, burning at the stake, the imposition of fines, confiscation of property and goods, physically painful penitence,See whats happening in Uganda?The robbing has its foundation in religious centers.

It is a damning indictment of humanity that with few exceptions the fear of force has been the major method of control used throughout human history by both religious and secular rulers, and remains the preferred ,indeed virtually the only method of ‘people control’ in all countries of the world.

Two other methods of control, Temptation and Reason, are seldom used by either religious or secular governments.

Temptation: The makers of consumer goods use temptation to make people consume their products but revert to fear of force when dealing with their workforce.

Reason: It was hoped by [mainly French] thinkers in the 1700’s that if people were educated they would use Reason and Logic and Commonsense to see the world as it is, and would behave ‘well’ because that’s the sensible, kind, non wasteful, peaceful, productive thing to do. For various reasons, not least among them the overweening influence of religion, that hasn’t worked.

There are and always have been a small percentage of humans who have used reason,logic and common sense to govern their lives, and invariably [inevitably perhaps] they have denied the existence of supernatural gods and monsters.

Everything existing in our world must be considered "natural", therefore the supernatural cannot exist on earth because if it did then it would be natural-not supernatural — and available to our senses – we’d be able to see or hear or smell or touch or taste it.

This proposition holds no sway with more than half of the citizens of the USA [and probably many people in developing World like Uganda] however, who, according to surveys, believe in the reality of witches, spells, vampires, angels, and extraterrestrials living among us, despite there never having been a case where they have been seen, heard smelled etc...........................

In other words despite a total lack of believable evidence.The following quote has been attributed to Charles Darwin’s father: Whoever wrote it, it makes excellent sense.

"Man is an eating animal, drinking animal and a sleeping animal and one placed in a material world, which alone furnishes the entire human animal can desire. He is gifted besides with knowing faculties,to practically explore and to apply the resources of the world to his use. These are realities. All else is nothing; - conscience and sentiment are mere figments of the imagination.Man has but five gates of knowledge, the five senses, he can know nothing but through them; all else is vain fancy. And as for the being of a god,the existence of a soul, or of a world to come, who can know anything about them? Depend upon it… these are only the bugbears by which men of sense govern fools; nothing is real that is not an object of sense”.

My metamorphosis from a ‘live and let live’ atheist to a rabid antagonist of religion came with the realisation that the objective of all religions is a desire to create a state in which their prejudices are enforced. Anyone who thinks the Taliban are unusual in this regard should think again. Blood is spilt daily all over the planet in the fight for religious control over the minds and bodies of the inhabitants. Ireland,Philippines,Ivory coast,Angola,Somalia,Kenya,Togo,
Nigeria,USA,China,Afghanistan, Israel, Lebanon,Uganda,Somalia and many more...........................

And past atrocities perpetrated by colonialists on the indigenous inhabitants of all countries with the tacit approval of religion, continue to haunt society in broken lives, drug abuse, impoverishment and misery.

Every year in Uganda and many African countries, dozens of men are murdered and thousands suffer abuse ranging from bullying to grievous bodily harm and permanent maiming as a direct result of religious teaching. And hundreds, if not thousands of boys are thrown onto the streets to live ‘rough’ by parents who are simply obeying the teachings of religion. These two years,we are seeing a great number of human sucrifice to please divine powers wherever they are.

Many succumb to disease, brutality, prostitution… and when you pass on the streets of Kampala and Nairobi, you will be greeted by thousands of street people as a result.

Both the Uganda and the USA governments are controlled by ‘devout’ Christians who see nothing wrong with lying to their constituents and waging war on innocent people, destroying civilizations, murdering, maiming and degrading the environment for economic gain.And it is the Fundamentalist Christian/Zionist certainty that heaven will not arrive on earth until there’s a Zionist state encompassing most of what we call the Middle East that ensures ongoing horror in Palestine…

History offers us a continuum of atrocities in the name of religion - wars,torture,murder,maimings,witch-hunts,incineration,the "Children’s Crusades" when thousands of homeless, unwanted kids as young as five were forced to walk, barefoot to Mediterranean ports from all across Europe, piled onto leaky ships and sent to the ‘holy land’ to fight the heathens.

All died horrible deaths of loneliness, starvation, drowning, disease, rape, abuse, slavery… in the name of a loving god. And anyone who cares to look at the lives of such sadistic monsters as St. Dominic and his henchman Torquemada, Calvin, Knox and the Borgia popes, or the perfidy of the Jesuits,to mention only a few of the millions of treacherous men and women who, in the name of their god have committed ghastly crimes against humanity, must, if they have a heart, weep.

And when I consider the unimaginable oceans of misery heaped on the indigenous people of The Americas, Africa, Australasia… with the blessing and assistance of the churches, my flesh creeps.

Christianity and Islam are death cults ,you must die to attain everlasting life. Human sacrifice on crosses… Sacrifice yourself for god! Inevitably and tragically this will end with the sacrifice of all life because of religious insistence on human supremacy/dominion over nature.

People who have spent time with animals in their natural state know that humans are simply animals.We are not better at providing for ourselves.We are not happier, more contented, more peacefully inclined.We do not respect other humans more than other animals respect each other; we are not more generous, caring or thoughtful.
Don't get me wrong,there are some great individuals who are struggling to make lives of other's better than well!

In general, human marriages are no longer-lasting than the matings of many other animals and birds.We do not treat or educate our offspring as well as most animals.And, instead of living in harmony with the natural world, our tool-making skills have enabled us change it to the point where there are hundreds of extinctions daily and it is more than likely we will soon render ourselves extinct.

Christians,Moslems and all other religious denominations insist that theirs is a "God of Love". When asked why this loving god allows dreadful things to happen to his ‘children’, they answer: "It’s to test you.To see if you can overcome your affliction and be worthy of god’s love." In other words, god allows people to go around maiming, laming, murdering and spreading dread-diseases, and sends plagues, pestilence, war and death - to test his flock! To see if they are worthy of his love… A god that organises his own ‘snuff’ movies -chilling!

Perhaps "believers" should exercise their minds on the following proposition rather than condemn a raped woman for having an abortion are we have been observing the Catholic church both in Uganda and Brazil!

If god is all-wise and all-powerful he has the power to arrange things better. If he chooses not to, then he’s the personification of evil.A creature so horrible that only the truly depraved would follow.

If, on the other hand, he isn’t all-wise and all-powerful, then he’s not worth following.

Those with minds uncluttered by fear of gods and monsters can accept that ‘life’ has no ‘meaning’ per se. ‘Life’ simply is, and we can either accept it gratefully and make the most of it, or waste it in the pursuit of false desires.

Without gods there’s no imposition of ‘right’ ways to live, but that doesn’t deny ‘good’ and ‘bad’. There are universal values for good such as decency, fairness, compassion… but they’ve been common to all humans in all ages.They are not the invention of religion.

I am responsible for my life and I’ll make it as worthwhile as I’m able. It’s up to me. And when I die, that’s it. That’s what makes life precious. That’s what makes life bearable. That’s why it’s important to live as ‘good’ a life as possible.

Bhagat Singh on Why I Am An Atheist?


I have been asked many times what do i believe,perhaps people have asked me to explain more on my beliefs,its always harder to know how to start but being a man of narration,i always find my way to do so,despite of the limited time i always pay in internet cafes.

You are aware that am a Humanist and in the same way an Atheist,so this is a brief introduction to what i regard as my faith but its not all,its just a small part of my bigger view of life.

What is Humanism?
Humanism is the belief that we can live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs. Humanists make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values. We seek to make the best of the one life we have by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves. We take responsibility for our actions and work with others for the common good.

What humanists believe?
We believe in an approach to life based on humanity and reason - humanists recognize that moral values are properly founded on human nature and experience alone. Our decisions are based on the available evidence and our assessment of the outcomes of our actions, not on any dogma or sacred text.

Humanism encompasses atheism and agnosticism but is an active and ethical philosophy far greater than these negative responses to religion.

I do believe in individual rights and freedoms but believe that individual responsibility, social cooperation and mutual respect are just as important.

I do believe that people can and will continue to find solutions to the world's problems so that quality of life can be improved for everyone including you and me.

Am positive. I gain my inspiration from our lives,art and culture, and a rich natural world. I do believe that we have only one life so it is our responsibility to make it a good life, and to live it to its fullness.

I hope that I have done all that I imagined just to give a clear view of me so that you make a right decision to join me in my quest to change the World.

Funny Story

Wednesday, March 11, 2009


What is your opinion,as an atheist and as a parent(People think i must be a parent at my age) about teens having sex?Should it be permitted? What are the implications and how do you deal with it? This is a question that greeted me when i visited my usual place tonight,am not a party animal but i sometimes pass by Caanan restaurant to meet friends who nicknamed "Dr Kalungi" because of my stand always on many topics and i always present them in an Atheistic view and those who know me sometimes find reasons to smile while listening to me and enjoying their tea,pork,coffee and sometimes wines.

Iam not sure why they nicknamed me so but one guy told me that "its because of my sexual talks" i don't recall when i last came to Canaan restaurant and of course this time,they are the one who invited me for a cup of coffee having known about my hernia surgery,they wanted to make me feel good and loved atleast. Below is my answer to their questions.

I have no kids of my own.I do have a little kid who happens to be my good friend who is now 12 and has visible peach fuzz on his upper lip, and spends a lot of time on the phone talking to girls he likes. He also bragged to me about having hit puberty before his other friends.We really talk much and i love to be trusted by him. In this post,i won't mention the names of this child!.

I know that his parents have talked to him about sex and puberty, because they told me they did.And he was quite open with me about knowing to use condoms,and how he shouldn't go on one-on-one dates until he's 16 years old. (He goes on group outings now-3 guys, and 3 girls, with a chaperon).

Since I have a great relationship with my friend, and he is so open with me,I decided to tell him what I thought. I told him that sex education can teach him all about the plumbing and the biology, but that understanding the emotions and the reality of dating and having a serious relationship is something that can only come with experience.

I told him that in puberty, the hormones rage hard and can cloud judgment,and that,coupled with lack of experience,can lead kids to make bad choices about sex and sexuality,so it's better to wait until the time is right.

I also talked to him about how easy it is to treat girls like objects or things that guys can possess, and how many guys see sex as something you "get" rather than something you share.I wanted him to understand and value girls as people, rather than as objects of gratification. He's too young to really understand, but at least I have him thinking about it.

I told him then, to sum it all up, that there's a difference between "having sex," and "making love." He asked me what the difference was, and I said, "until you know, you aren't ready for either one. And even when you do know, you're still probably not ready."

It was a good talk.I think it was good though mainly because I was honest and open and didn't bullshit him in any way.I didn't preach in any way either. I shared my personal values with him -the values I live by.

And I think values are the key. I live on a a shanty area, surrounded by young poor people. Invariably I see young people who get into a lot of trouble, are very rebellious, do lots of things they shouldn't, and basically just ignore everything their parents ever told them.I also see quite a few young people who are exemplary people, who have strong values and live by them.

I noticed a pattern when talking with these kids. The ones who rebel and get into trouble always speak of their parents only in terms of rules their parents have given them, and typically they mention how their parents don't follow their own advice or rules.

The kids who have values and live by them, however, speak of their parents with examples. They tell me things they've seen or heard their parents do. They never say things like, "my dad tells me not to lie, and one time I saw my dad be honest," no, it's never that overt. It's usually more a case of the kid telling me something about their parents casually, that tells me that their parents have strong values and live by them.

In short, I think the kids I know who are moral and honorable have parents who aren't hypocrites and who lead by example.

I hope something I say here can inspire someone there.

Bashir Finally Wanted by the ICC!

Its always very hard to start writting when you are in Africa.There are just too many issues to talk about from Men who beat and torture their wives in the name of love,corruption,highest inflations,failing states,state sponsored homophobia,religions,ritual killings,denial of the right to live in a better organised enviroment,just name it and the list is endles, and you can talk years and years and nothing changes.When you are someone who believes in a just society,then you get dissapointed all the time.And it gets worth when you are using the internet cafes to write,because you spend your money there and you see no results of the compaigns you are carrying on,may be am just skeptical!

I want to say that,yesterday 4th March 2009,the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued the arrest orders for the Sudanese President Omar Al Bashir to face charges against War crimes in the Sudanese region of Darfur,the first of its kind in our modern political enviroment. This is a very big challenge for the ICC,there are many questions on how Bashir will be arrested,who will arrest him?

The ICC requests that the Government of Sudan itself should be cooperative on this matter,this means that before anyone else,the Sudanese authority should be the first to hand him to the Hague,or in a little knowledge,Bashir should hand himself to the ICC,something that cannot happen now.

There are 108 member states that make up ICC,so any member of it can arrest Bashir if he visits,but what if he stays home until when he dies?

I have been folowing this issue from July 2008 when the prosecutor of the ICC first put this matter on table,there are many questions,less answers. How many people should be brought to the ICC?

USA is a member of the ICC but it does not believe in it when it comes to its citizens who commits the war crimes,why is Bush,the former President of USA is not on arrest warrant for the war in Iraq and Afghanistan? What are the criteria used by the ICC to see how should face the books of law and who should not?

While i support the ICC move and would appreciate the corrective responsibility of all the ICC member states to arrest Bashir,we should know that there are many people who should face it including Tony Blair,former UK prime minister,Former President Bush for the killings of Iraqi people,then the President of Uganda,Museveni and many more. We should also not forget if,this move can really help the people of Darfur, lets wait and see.

Allow me to introduce my self to you. Am called Quitstorm on this online world,am a Ugandan aged now almost 30 years(i say almost because my birthday will come on 23 March and on that date,another year is added on my life cycle.

On this page,allow me to take you in my long journey to freedom.. This is a weblog of a person whose desire is to find happiness and freedom in life.

Am not sure where to start but being in a country where tribalism dominates(i hate tribalism) i must sadly point on the the tribe of which i belong as i know my Ugandan readers would like to know.Am a Ugandan and a Muganda by tribe. I was born on 23 march 1979. I was born in a peasant and mere protestant family, in a little village with its bedrock on lake Wamala in Mityana formely part of Mubende district,You can also see Mityana Local Government.See details on Mityana

Present-day known as Mityana District and Nakibanga Parish, 57 miles from Kampala.If you have a geographical Map of Uganda or Eastafrica,you may locate this place.(those who are not in Uganda currently)

My parents were not living in normal marriage. My mother was not a stable lady from the information I found out later during my mission to find her, so she left me with my grandpas when I was only six months! Later I found that she died many years ago. I found this when she had spent more than ten years in the in her graveyard in 1998.This paved a way where my childhood was stolen completely. As you read it,you may sense that am not a good narrator,so you have a right to correct me.

My grandpas did an enormous work to bring me up even though it was a painful life. In our families (extended family) we were very many children, coming from different types of families just like in most dominant African families the world over. My father alone had 12 children. But there was other kids from other family relatives.

My father was a cultivator, farmer and a local beer manufacturer(he is now worn out that he cannot do these works on his own). For me, the life I lived was strangely very different from others'. as it was full of hatred and discrimination. I was staying with my grandpas but as a must I was supposed to wake up early in the morning and go to my father's home to help him with domestic commercial work which was good but he over used me with lesser signficants or outcomes as a child!

In school days, instead of going to school like my brothers and sisters, I was sent to look for bananas, which was used to manufacture local beer and "Walagi".This helped my father to exploit me as much as possible and there are many things which my family did to me but I am unable to mention it all in this little time but also time had passed by,that on this day as i write this,am not able to recall each event that took place as i had no dairy.

Amongst the problems I experienced were dealing with heavy works, hatred, being lonely, hanger, lack of parental care, discrimination between my brothers and sisters since we were born of different mothers and lack of not going to school. This problem of being lonely is hitting me so harder that i fail to think of a way to get out of it!.

I could sometimes wake up at dawn to go and milk cows. I could even ask myself why my parents were doing all this to me; but no answer until 4th February, 1990, the day which I will never forget throughout my life. It was a day when my father sent my youngest sister to my grandpas ordering me not to go anywhere before he (my father) came to send me somewhere. On this day, my family disowned me!

I listened and waited up to 3.00 P.M. when he told me to clean myself because it was time to depart for his mission! When I finished, I waited for a little while. He came with my stepmother, my two elder brothers and sister. We left home for the mission not knowing that it was the day that marked the exodus of my suffering going throughout my life.

When we reached the place, we found many people including village elders, local council members, family friends and all our clan leaders and heads of our genealogy. We all sat down and started with the occasion,While observing and listening attentively. It was one of my worst moments in life that you can greatly imagine of!. But in addition,i have been with a fragile life over and over.

On this occasion the intention was to handle me to another man. So my father abandoned me saying I was not his son! After all, the speaker told me to stand and shake hands with my new father. All this happened without any chance to know my mother not even to know her names, origination, her clan and genealogy.I refused to do as they had ordered me. I left the room knowing that there was nothing to do with that. I knew it was time to start my independent life which i have been living almost all my life.

Many questions like what should I do, Should I commit suicide, and many others developed in my life. While struggling to look for solution, I learned that unless I went away, I could not solve anything.I was really fixed between a hard place and a rock.

So I left the place to go for the wild life. On that very age i recall my age was around 10 or 11, I got a friend who was living on the streets. He brought the same ideas to me of going to the street in the next town (Mityana.)

While staying on the streets, I passed through difficult times. I lived a painful and hurtful life. Later I started looking for jobs in town. It was very hard for me to get jobs due to my age,So I started to eat food dumped in the city garbage just like all streets kid the world over. Sometimes I could fail to get even such food and depend on empty stomach day and night.This resulted into strong ulcers that up to now,am fighting with them.

Life was really difficult in that place. Later on, I started to fetch water from the nearby wells on head and through this I could get some little money for food. At the age of 12 years I went back to my home village with a plan of earning some money for education.

I started my school when I was 13 years. I have been struggling to promote my education as well as meeting my needs like food, clothes, house rent and others. Whenever I recall the past I break into tears especially when I think of the life style I lived in my father's family and on the streets ,however i dont regret for having been given the opportunity for life!

At the age of 15,i become a born again Christian. I thought that turning to Jesus may solve my problems but that was a joke,i proudly say that while many people claim freedom after joining a certain religion,i claim my freedom after i denounced any divine powers on me including God.

Well it never worked as I thought. I went to a theological college and trained as a missionary with the Support of Baptist Missionaries who were working in our area. After that, I travelled to Kenya with the Help of Churches there to work as a missionary in Kitui,Machakos,Nairobi,Kisumu and many other areas.

In 1998,when the President,through the Media and society went against Gays,I came up openly to campaign for freedom of expression,associate and Human rights for GLBTs.

I have appeared on local and international media including the Community channel Television in the UK and straight Africa-Voice of America TV where i have made live calls during the straight talk Africa show.

When the Church knew about my role in supporting rights of all people including GLBTs,they ex-communicated ,disassociated from me and hence leaving the church alone.

But also before that, I was somehow homophobic not really knowing that i myself was a Humanist/Atheist whose principals does not allow me to discriminate anyone because of sexual orientation. Now having discovered myself,am a freeman doing all what it takes to make Uganda a better place for all of us. I would like to see everyone on this planet Earth enjoying a more happier and better life.In other words,i want humans to be better than well!.

I went ahead with activism until when it was about to cost my life after countless tempted arrests and death threats, eviction from houses and public transportation, and public places, banning of my organization’s expression from the media houses and news paper that even now,if I write an article,they cannot allow it to appear in any news paper.

From my little travels,I had met many people of which some of them were just as me,and they were called the Humanist, call them Atheists if you like..So I was interested in knowing who are really the humanists,haaaaa thats how i discovered myself once again.

I attended a Humanist event and met other people from the International Humanist and ethical Union summit in Kampala in may 2004.It was really fun learning more and more of the Humanist values and principles.

I became a transhumanist,now am strongly developing an association of Transhumanist within Eastafrica,but it happen not to go as I expect. I hope it needs time.I do hope that life is really funny and more interesting to live.

I have gone through a lot but as i say we need an evenning walk and a cup of coffee to experience my journey of life,still its nice that you are following it via this blog of which i think i will be able to post on and on.

The more I lacked love the more I became selfish; the more I suffered the harder and storny my heart became. I suffered a lot but I knew that life is like a bicycle, you cannot stop pedalling unless you ........................... Now am a loving,passionate,not easy to get angry person!.

I now know that you have many questions for me but its okey for you to ask and I will answer.. In reality,i never completed my education, am proud because I do things that even those who hold degrees cant do sometimes however,in Africa having education a a strong key to better lives.

I have what I call a brain power and am really feeling happpy when someone seeks my help in any way or another. At the age on 28 I tried to go back to school and do my UCE exams but hey,i felt very negative when i saw that i was 10 or 15 years older than the classmates,so i dropped out again. May be one day i will get a chance again when am even much older. You are free to comment and see whats ahead of me.
