From Germany to Radicalism for Young Muslims

These are my comments in reply to this article that appeared in a leading US newspaper. You can read From Germany to Radicalism for Young Muslims and then see my comments. A happy life??  Shariah law is many things--all of them anti-human, especially against women, gays, believers in other religions and non-believers.  Is "happiness" seeing others socially stunted, living in fear of the self-righteous or tortured? This big mistake here is that the parents taught religion to their children--instead of encouraging that they look to science to explain the mysteries of life and the universe. It happens among Christians as well.  Teaching children a "mild", "moderate", for of Christianity can, for some, lead them to seek something more radical--as though the more punishing, oppressive and irrational is living a "truer" form of the religion.

These parents lost their children to religion.  How can we turn that into a lesson and a warning for others?  The lesson: "Even a little religion can go a long way--to death and destruction."   If parents think that by giving their child a faith to live by will make them better citizens--well, learn by observing.  Learn from the shock and loss of those who, in all their glorious ignorance, meant well.

As they say: "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

References of Violance from the Quran.

Here are some of the references of scriptures from the Quran itself,which moslems think it came live from Heaven.

--The unbelievers are your inveterate enemy. (4:101)
-- Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve. (8.55)
-- Mohammed is God's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. (48:29).
-- It is unlawful for a believer to kill another believer, accidents excepted. (4:92)
-- Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends. (5:51)
-- Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God's religion shall reign supreme. (8:40)
-- Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme. (2:193)
-- The true believers fight for the cause of God, but the infidels fight for the devil. (4:76)
-- We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. (3:151)
-- I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers. (8:12)

Quotes from the sayings of Mohammed:

Muhammad said to the Jews: "If you embrace Islam, you will be safe. You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. “

Sahih Bukhari [4:52:176] Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

Allah's Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "

Mohammed said, "I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.." (otherwise it will not). Vol. 4:196

Mohammed said, "Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him." Vol. 9:57
Mohammed said, " No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir" (infidel). Vol. 9:50

Muhammad said: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, …(Sahih Muslim 4294)

Introducing Albert III

This is the continuation of my reply to Albert’s comments to one of my articles here. I made three parts of this segments and this is the last one. Am trying to help Albert see the reality of life in Uganda. And this is what is happening in my country. Now you, Albert, may equate the local food market with a church, mosque or the local sports bar. I don't. I make a clear distinction in my mind. My country has been under threat from both Christians and Islamists for decades. Uganda is a violent country and is getting worse.

There's violent conflict between Museveni's thugs and the Buganda Kingdom. Muslims are violent because of their religion. But so are Christians. Too many Christians kill their own children, which are viewed as "witches." Or mostly known as ritual murders. They kill them for wealth or sudden riches. Cult leaders have killed their flock. Then there's a quiet violence of overpopulation which causes hunger and deaths--not so much by actual starvation, but by opportunistic diseases which thrive in bodies with low resistance because of malnutrition. The Institution of Religion thrives on human misery. They treat symptoms without tackling root causes of human misery.

Like you, I would have sympathy for those killed in a food market should an Islamist throw a bomb into the crowd. But unlike you, I would have no sympathy for people killed in a building dedicated to the practice of religion. As for the atheist killed inside a church, I will simply warn atheists to stay out of churches because of the danger in Uganda. I also have to question how much sympathy I have for sports fans who were killed on 11th of July even though I have on many occasions shouted my anger towards those who carried the attacks.

Uganda is a very troubled country--because of religion and all the corruption it breeds. As they say: If you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem. Religionists are part of the problem. Sports fans are generally not politically involved--especially in overturning the status quo. Sports are simply another kind of religion. Sports fans, for the most part, are not part of the solution.The people I have respect for, and would be emotionally affected should they be killed by Islamists or Christian fanatics, would be those who have rejected religious beliefs and were ACTIVE in fighting for human rights--for everybody. In Uganda we don't have anything that represents democracy because most people are politically uninvolved.

It's a little difficult to convey this idea, but I have a certain level of love for Uganda because I know what a jewel it could be--if it weren't for religion. I envy people in European countries that are relatively secular. But I also know that I can cause change in Uganda by teaching my fellow citizens that religion is evil, it's holding us back, and over 32 million people are suffering from this colonialist yoke that Europeans imposed upon us since the late 19th century.

Because of the ravages of World War II, Europeans have grown up pretty much. My question now to Europeans and Americans: When are you going to come down to Africa and clean up the mess you made with your religion? To Americans especially: When are you going to stop sending your vile, Nazi-like evangelical Christians? What we need from Europe and America is a kind of Peace Corps that will expose their religions for the garbage they are, and to replace religion with instructions in scientific methodology and rationality. And while you're busy cleaning up garbage--take David Bahati and James Nsaba Buturo back with you to America. If this happens, I will be the happiest person on planet Earth.

Introducing Albert--Part II

Introducing Albert--Part II.

This is a continuation of my first  article in response to my freind Albert who comments on my blog. Throughout your response, you wish to leave the impression that you love everybody.

Albert wrote: "At the end of the day, we are all human beings, before we are a certain type of human being. And its the humanity aspect here that I am talking about."

Quitstorm: I do not believe that you believe what you just stated. On the other hand, if you are sufficiently apolitical, perhaps you do see the preciousness of all humans, regardless. After all, Idi Amin was a human being and, therefore, you would be more concerned about the humanity of Amin than would be over what he did to others. Right? To me, Amin should have been given the same treatment as was given to Benito Mussolini.

I get the feeling that you are a very comfortable man living in a peaceful nation surrounded by security and mutually respectful people. Here in Uganda, that is not the case. As an active and outspoken proponent of human rights, including the rights of the most detested group of people in Africa--GLBT people—( call them homosexuals), my life is in danger every minute of the day. I can't even invite you to visit Uganda (am not sure about your location) and stay for a year because you'd be out on the streets preaching, "Homosexuality is a sin--just like all the other sins all of us commit." With a pitiful message like that, I certainly wouldn't be walking near you.

Let's test to see how much you care for all of humanity or every member of the human family. You come home from work and your wife is not home like she always is. You go to the kitchen; you see the back door is ajar. You go to the back door; she's not in the back yard. You're suddenly struck with fear. You return to the front room and are about to call the police, when suddenly there's a loud banging on the front door. It's your neighbour.

She tells you that a man entered the back door and beat up your wife and then raped her--she's at Memorial Hospital. You find yourself trembling with rage. You call the police, they confirm what your neighbour just told you. Police also say that they haven't made any arrests--haven't even gotten any leads. The officer tells you that he stopped in Ben's Sports Bar at the corner, but about 20 guys were watching soccer and were totally uncooperative. The officer feels that the sketchy description given by your dazed wife could help give the police an idea. Who knows, your wife by now could be infected by the rapist's HIV.

"Well!" you tell yourself. "So 20 of my neighbours couldn't take their eyes away from that goddam soccer game to help the police!" You go to Ben's Sports Bar to see if you can get any cooperation from the soccer fans--maybe they were intimidated by the idea of talking to the police. However, you, too, were met with disinterest and shrugs of shoulders. After all, it wasn't their wife who was raped.

You go home, suffering even more rage and disillusionment. You THOUGHT your neighbours would at least cooperate a little, would have a little sympathy for your plight. But soccer was more important.

Now Ben's Sports Bar is an old building and had been cited by the city for various structural problems and fire hazards. Sunday evening featured the regional soccer finals--this was the big one to determine who was going to Brazil for the International Match of 2011. Meantime, in the basement, the large propane tank had been leaking gas all afternoon. No one noticed. Then, at 5:18 pm, an automatic electronic switch tripped, generating a spark which blew up Ben's Sports Bar and all 33 customers and the bartender. Everyone killed!

These were the same guys who couldn't be bothered in helping you or the police find leads to the rapist. How would you feel about the 33 guys who were blown up in the bar? I'll tell you, I probably wouldn't feel a thing--certainly not sympathy. I must stop here and please do look for my last part of this edition. Part III

Tuesday, July 27, 2010


A few days ago I got a response to an earlier post of mine.  It was thoughtful and written well enough that I thought I would re-post it as one of my blog articles--as opposed to leaving it hidden behind "3 comments"

Instead of calling this individual "Anonymous" I'm going to call this writer: "Albert."   So let me post his recent comment here:

Albert: As a matter of fact I am a Christian. Secondly, I am not that kind of Christian that is the "religious" kind - the kind as you put it regard GLBT as sinners or morally inferior. The type of religion that the Pastor Sempas and the like preach concerning homosexuality for instance, is straight fanatical and I see it as bigotry and hypocritical.

Quitstorm: I assume you're referring to Pr Martin Ssempa.  I'm sure he would say that you are not a Christian--period.  Ssempa would continue saying that there's only one kind of Christian--and that's the one as described in the New Testament--which is an extension of the Old Testament.  The NT does not refute the OT.

Albert: Yes I said it, and I'm a Christian. Why is it that they dont attack adultery or fornication with the venom they do concerning homosexuality. Its all wrong either way. They are all human, no more sinners than myself or the next person. Now that's where I agree with you that "religion" is a problem. The Jesus I believe in did not come to create a religion. Places of worship or churches are just that. Christianity doesnt start and end in the physical building. If Christ dined with thieving tax collectors, tagged amongst the worst sinners at the time, why would I expect that he wouldnt do the same with a gay person, and why wouldnt I. Point is, yes "religion" is more a tradition of sorts, but we are called not to be religious. Christ himself condemned the "religions" of the day - people who steadfastly held onto their belief systems that were more wrapped around tradition than anything else.

But back to the point of the original post and my earlier reply, I separate myself from the fact that the bombing was in a church/mosque and look at it as a loss of life. There coulda been non-believers say inside the church who say just so happened to be there because there was a friend/family wedding, etc and got killed. He may not be there to worship any particular god.

Or, why would I feel sorrier for a market crowd that got targeted by a bomb blast and not a church/mosque crowd & yet in that very same market are most likely people of different believers or non at all.

So should I identify the non-believer victims in that market crowd and feel sorry for them. Should I identify only those that are Christians - not the religious kind that think things have to be done a certain way, at a certain time, etc - should I identify those Christians and feel sorry for them and not be moved by the rest.

At the end of the day, we are all human beings, before we are a certain type of human being. And its the humanity aspect here that I am talking about.

Albert--Part I

Albert wrote: "The Jesus I believe in did not come to create a religion." 

Quitstorm: You seem to think that "Jesus" was a real person at one time--or maybe still is a real person.  Jesus, in fact, is a fictious charater in a collection of books comprising The New Testament.   There is absolutely no archaeological or historical evidence that the character "Jesus" as described in the New Testament was a real person.   This character, it is stated, walked on water and changed water into wine and rose up into "Heaven".  Superstitious people will believe this, but those of us to view the world scientifically understand that this is fairy-tale stuff.  Miracles never happened, this Jesus character never restored the sight of a blind man or restored life to dead people, and there is no such thing as a "Heaven".  The concept of a "soul" is pure fiction as well. 

 To answer your question: Jesus IS the religion.  Religion IS superstition.  Not only the character Jesus, but St Paul and all the other characters in the Bible are part of the religion.  I wouldn't be surprised if Paul of Tarsus was the one who created the character of Jesus.  But the fact is, there never was an historical Jesus.  No historian of the time recorded having seen a Jesus.  What was found among the writings of the Jewish historian Josephus was a forgery inserted by Eusebius of Caesarea. 

Albert wrote: "If Christ dined with thieving tax collectors, tagged amongst the worst sinners at the time, why would I expect that he wouldn't do the same with a gay person."  

Quitstorm: Hmm.  So you consider homosexuality a sin, therefore gay people are morally inferior to straights.  But you also wrote that you were not the kind of Christian who thought that gays were morally inferior.  Just comparing apples with apples, I'm sure you do not consider heterosexuality a sin, but you stated that you do think homosexuality is.  Now that more nations are legalising homosexuality, will Christians consider sexual relations outside of a gay marriage as "fornication" or "adultry"?

Quitstorm: Atheists do not commit sins, atheists are not sinners.  The concept of "sin" is purely religious and differs from one denomination and congregation to another.  To give an example, I've been trying to find out if Protestants consider drinking alcohol a sin.  Some say yes, others say no, others have explained that it's not the drinking of alcohol per se, but taking any kind of euphoriant that would separate their thoughts from their god.  One example where Christians disagree.  How is an atheist to know what Christianity it?  

Albert wrote: "I separate myself from the fact that the bombing was in a church/mosque and look at it as a loss of life. There coulda been non-believers say inside the church who say just so happened to be there because there was a friend/family wedding, etc and got killed. He may not be there to worship any particular god."

Quitstorm: With the exception of nine countries now that permit same-sex marriage, why would an atheist be at a wedding in the rest of the countries?  Atheists are proponents of human equality--as opposed to Christians, Jews and Moslems, and most other religions.  Recognising and witnessing a heterosexual marriage would be celebrating human inequality.  Repeat: INEQUALITY.  And there are atheists who find same-sex relations repugnant because of their childhood brainwashing.  These are atheists who got to the first stage of atheism: dumping the god-head, but yet are still burdened with all of the garbage that the Christian/Moslem authorities (parents, imams, priests, etc.) fed them when they were too young to question that authority.  Liberating one's self from all the harmful effects of religion takes time and a lot of thinking--along scientific lines.

What elicits my admiration is that there are a few heterosexuals who refuse to get married in their homophobic country, until gays are permitted to get married.  Meanwhile, as Christians say, our heterosexual supporters are "living in sin" because they are cohabiting while unmarried. I have written three editions of this article.Please wait look for the other remaining two pieces.

Is Islam a religion of PEACE as they claim or a Terrorist Cult?

Uganda was bombed on 11 July 2010 in a co-ordinated activity that claimed 74 people dead, more than 100 wounded and unknown amount of destroyed property worthy millions of shillings. A day after the bombings, the Islamic terrorist group Al-shabab claimed responsibility and below is a quote from their statement.
"We will carry out attacks against our enemy wherever they are,". "No one will deter us from performing our Islamic duty." Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, a militant spokesman in Mogadishu

Since then, we have written and discussed if truly Islam is a religion of Peace. From my own words, I have on several occassions said that Islam is a terrorist cult and that all religions are bad, but the difference between Islam and other religions is that, Other religions are now after money, they know that when they persuade you to their cult/religion, you will become their instant ATM machine where they pick money for their luxurious lives, therefore they don't want to loose you by instant death. On the other hand, Islamic fanatics are not interested in this world riches and money even though they want it too, they are more interested in what their Allah promises like Jannah and the 70 virgin girls in heaven. So with that, they will do whatever they are ordered to do.

Atheists who are not attached to an ideology (such as Communism) do not believe in violence. Most of us are humanists.  We believe in discussion, compromise and peaceful resolutions to problems.  However, there are atheists serving in various armed forces around the world, but all of us would rather that there not is a need for violent conflict. 

We don't have a god--or a human--that we fight for or on behalf of.  If we must fight oppressors, we do so to preserve freedom of thought, speech and independence from the demands of religious leaders. We are defending our right to love whomever we wish.   But moslems torture and kill for an imaginary god, imaginary virgins in an imaginary heaven.  If it's not already, a belief in a god should be classified as a serious mental illness. 

We can't imprison every violent or potentially violent religious person, but we can challenge the ideas and belief systems of religious people.  Religion is a result of ignorance, the absence of reason and humanity. There is no reason to respect anyone's religion or religious beliefs.   Even the most benign religious belief still imbues with authority an ancient holy book filled with violence and hatred.  In my next posts,I will share with you some critical references from the Quran that promote the murder we are seeing and also the number of groups responding to it.

Moslems Fighting Moslems!

Nothing unusual with Muslims fighting others of their religion. Note what's happening in Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt and in Somalia. I think it's a form of war when President Mubarak suppresses the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. It's a form of war when the Taliban (a male-only religious group) suppresses Afghan women and children.I will be paying attention to see if Somalia sends Islamists to Guinea and bombs them. I will be paying attention to see if the African Union will get more involved in Somalia. Guinea is sending troops to Somalia

Friday, July 23, 2010

From the Press.

The first article on what is happening in Somalia is worrisome  for all East Africans. Since 74 Ugandans were murdered by the Islamists, I make sure that I stay away from any recognisable crowds of people.Am lucky to be an atheist because I don't have the urge to worship in a mosque or church. For me, it's a little difficult to feel too much sympathy for those who get blown up while attending mosque or church.

Burundi is thoroughly corrupt--and they have troops in Somalia. Uganda is a little less corrupt (at least that's what the article implies), and Uganda has troops in Somalia. Personally I do not think that Burundi is more corrupt than Uganda.

More and more people are speaking out against the drug war. I may not live to see the end of the drug war, but I'm living to see the beginning of the end. It may take another 30 years to complete this change by abolishing the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.

Kampala is refreshing now.But can it be better tomorow?

It's 3pm on this 21st July 2010.It just rained a few minutes ago and I feel happier being in the town center. I walked around Kampala streets doing exactly nothing. I was at Uganda house when it almost turned grey and later rained. I think this heavy rains washed off the blood which was still clotting from more than 70 people bombed on 11th July 2010.
The nation is still mourning and living in fear--just like the terrorist militants wanted.  Uganda is still in fear and from my observation, almost every body lives in fear, however there are some so called brave Ugandans who doesn't care any more. They simply say life must go on.

When you walk in Kampala streets and its suburbs, you see military men and other security agents armed to teeth.They look very tired and hostile though peaceful during daytime, they also seem to be with no hope just like many Ugandans despite of the continued propaganda from the Government of Uganda telling citizens that tomorrow will be a better day.

I live by several rules.  One of them is to assume that government and religious leaders never tell the truth. The truth is that tomorrow definitely will not be a better day.   On the other hand, we could have a brighter future if we changed our way of thinking.

-> Tomorrow would be a better day if we withdrew our "peacekeeping" troops from Somalia. 
-> Tomorrow would be a better day if the government would promote a culture of science and rationality--not religious ideas which lead to violence.  
-> Tomorrow would be a better day if we adopted a one-child-per-family policy.  

Here is how we stand in relation to the top three population-growth nations in the world:

Niger  .  .  .   3.66%
Uganda  .  .  3.563%
Burundi  .  .  3.561%

Numbers of people are growing, but forest area and farmland is shrinking, water supply isn't increasing. 

Let's compare Uganda with America.  America is on the decline because of overpopulation, and is one of the major sources of global warming.  Most of their landfills are full.  Whether still open or not, landfills are contaminating the water supply.  Their prisons are full with having the highest incarceration rate in the world. 2,300,000 mostly young people and people of colour languish in American prisons, largely because of their stupid drug war--which Uganda has mindlessly adopted as well.

In America, untold millions of young adults are still living with their families because of unemployment or low-paying part-time jobs.  Then there's the homeless problem.  Assessing the number of homeless is quite difficult, but in one study from Oct 2007-Oct 2008, 1.6 million persons relied on their shelter system.  This does not include hundreds of thousands who do not wish to use such shelter, preferring, instead, to sleep under bridges, in forested areas, abandoned housing, abandoned vehicles, etc.  Before the Reagan Administration, this was far less the case.  In Washington, D.C., homeless black men sleep on grates on the pavements which, in the winter, carries the exhaust of warm government buildings.  In Washington, D.C., you will never see a homeless white man--as told to me by a friend of mine who lived in DC.

My American friend tells me that he has no hope for his country--things are getting worse and will continue to get worse.  The population growth rate of the United States almost 1%. Finland, which enjoys one of the highest standards of living, has a population growth rate of 0.084%.  Or, in other words: population stability.

A country that has a zero population growth rate (as all countries should) can afford to feed, house and educate all of its citizens without investing enormous amounts of capital in just providing for an increasing population.   But then, Finland is also a solidly secular nation--meaning, religion is of very low importance and getting less important every year.  Therefore, you don't have priests going around demanding: "Be fruitful and multiply!". 

Finland is the definition of a democracy with no discrimination against people because of gender or sexual orientation. Yes, as is the case in every nation on earth, there is racial discrimination--not so much because of skin colour, but fear of outsiders.  Every year, the Economist magazine rates Finland has having the most ethical government among all nations.  Uganda, a heavily Christian nation, has one of the most corrupt governments in the world.  Every Finnish citizen is valued--unlike millions of American citizens and at least half the population of Uganda!

The land area of Uganda is about the same as the state of Oregon on the West Coast of USA. But that state has only one-tenth the population of Uganda.

The population of Uganda is 3,900,000, which means, at a growth rate of 3.563% every year, we have added 138,957 people to our troubled nation--and making it worse.    "Population growth rate" is different from "fertility rate."  Population growth is the overall increase in population, for whatever reason:  immigration, emigration, births and deaths.  

When human populations grow, other populations suffer.  Forest areas and wildlife decrease in size.  Arable land decreases in area, even though there are more mouths to feed every day, every week, every year.  With limited resources for a growing population, the prices of food, rent, building materials, medical services, and everything else increases.  Therefore, poverty increases while human happiness decreases because the cause of violence and fear increases.

Each year, approximately 150,000 new Ugandans will be demanding educational services.  Demand as much as they want, they won't get it.  As is the case in Nigeria, the school system in Uganda is deteriorating. As in Nigeria, only 50% of Ugandans are literate.  Even with the impending advent of oil production, both corruption and overpopulation will continue the decline in Uganda's ability to educate every citizen.

No, there is no hope for Uganda as long as it continues to increase in population.  If hope is to be realised in Uganda, the people of my country must bear no more than one child per couple, and must respect, celebrate and honour those who have no children.

After the bombs, Will Kampala be the Same again?

Kampala is now a city of fear after the bombs that hit her on 11th July 2010.A lot of things have happened since then. The fear is growing more and more in the  hearts of all people in Kampala including leaders. The damages of bombs,in terms of costs is unknown. Yesterday I walked through the township of Kampala,observing what's happening around.I was so curious to know what happened to most of the good places where people go and hang in for coffee,wedding meetings and lunch.

Most of the restaurants were empty.Their owners just standing with hope that someone will drop in and eat,I imagined this kind of situation,how it will affect a young workers in those eating places.Restaurants will have to send them home.They will have no work. People are not free any more.I did notice a moslem guy on Constitutional square who was in isolation and couldn't look into the eyes of the by passers.

On Constitutional square,buses were loading passengers in without even security measures to check them.I imagined a terrorist entering one of them and who will survive? Even taxis (minivans) were doing the same.If a terrorist kills 15 people,that's victory for him/her. The worst part of this is that terrorists are collaborating with local people,so you cannot assume the bomber will be Somali like person.Anyone can be a terrorist including your best friend that you have known for years.

All bars are told to close at 10PM.I do not see this as a  solution to terrorism.Terrorists want us to live in fear.We should reject this. Even pentecostal churches that have always disrupted our sleep by shouting all night long,they say they will not go beyond midnight.Do they fear death yet they always say they will be in Heaven? Why should they fear it? Why should religious centers put up security measures since God can know everything in time?

This terrible crimes

Read this  People take drugs of all kinds and most people don't turn into rapists or murderers.  The worst drug that prompts violent behaviour is alcohol. Where were the state's social service agencies to help this troubled man before he committed these horrible crimes?

Should Uganda be in Somalia?

I read this article and I don't know if Uganda should be in Somalia.I previoulsy said more than once that moslems in Somalia should just kill one another and that Ugandan troops should not be there.

So why are Ugandan troops in Somalia? Is it out of compassion? I doubt it. The people of Uganda are not especially compassionate people. Go here to read an article about police watching gangs beat up people--and not care and not respond to help the victims.

Somalian bombers are turning the entire world against their race in general and everyone just wants to bomb them out of existence. Unfortunately we have a ridiculous institute called the UN which prevents the cure from taking place. They say "the innocent will be slaughtered as well" but fail to realise that the innocent is being slaughtered by the very ones that we all want to get rid of. There is give and take in beating the enemy and of course innocents will suffer, like in all wars.

I therefore say,UN cannot help the World,we must stand and say not to UN nosense and simply go for every religious terrorist group wherever they are,if a small township supports them,we should wipe it out all.

Shame on you guys in Zana.

I left the dirty toilet very frustrated and depressed that the woman in a kiosk restaurant didn't give me any tissue yet I paid. I was really feeling bad; she didn't even provide water for to wash my hand after visiting the toilet. There was also nothing like a sign of water cans around the toilet, this proved that all people who visit this, always ignore the fact that, one should always wash his/her hands after a toilet service. Shame on you guys in Zana. I still recall you.

I jumped the road barriers to the other side of the road on the left hand side to continue my way to JS residence. I walked a down road that had no signpost and no name just like most of the bad faded, dirty off roads you see in Kampala metropolitan city and its suburbs; I knew that it was the one because JS told me the mark that I looked around. It was a kiosk of a guy who makes roadside chapatis, (Pan-grilled unleavened flatbread). selling also airtime, and then had faded adverts of the useless East African Common market that kicked off on 1st July 2010.

I arrived at the house of JS, the Pan Africanist. His compound was good, greenly and well organized. His maid ushered me in the main room. She presented a chair for me, but minutes after I sat down, she introduces me to the new rooms which was of course the office of JS.I quietly sat myself. The maid brought me a glass of water. It was cool and tastefully. I think all water are tasteful even though we know that water is tasteless, may be I do not know what's the taste of Water.

Well, after 30 minutes of waiting, JS came in, warmly greeted me. He was warm and lively after a very long time of not meeting each other. He iniated the issues that bhe wanted to talk with me, and guess what, like I said in my first article, he was more concerned about Panafricanism and what should be done to make issues known to the general public. After almost two hours of discussions, JS waved me off and it was nice talking to him, I was convinced with his concerns and I told him, I will be considering working him in all possible ways but also I warned him that, this doesn't mean that I agree with whatever he thinks and he said "It's alright brother".

I arrived at the taxi stage at around 10:15 am and jumped in taxi immediately on the window seat. It’s my favorite seat but these days, am very cautious about it since the bandits started pouring Acid into taxis previous with hope that Acid will get to whoever their enemies are but later ended up hurting innocent passengers.

The Sun was very up and shiny. I was here on the road, thinking of course nothing, not even what we have talked with JS.I noticed something. I started seeing more and more signposts announcing churches, almost every five minutes; I spotted another signpost announcing a church and its pastor. There’s even one that carried the photography of a senior Pastor in that particular church.

I started questioning why should one put the pictures of a senior Pastor, what’s the purpose of it? With no answers coming, I choose to ignore everything I show, but again continued asking why, is it that there was no signpost announcing any public toilet on the road?

If we can have signpost of God's massive business and empires that helps no one but the pastor and his Family (not even church members), Why can't we have big well painted signposts announcing clean better conditioned Toilets on our roads? I hope you help me find answers.

No shitting in the toilet when it comes to Zana township.

I was in Kasaana Luweero when a friend of mine called me. This was his first call. I wondered what could be that made him initially call me. I wanted to make the phone busy but chose to pick him up. It was now 4pm Kampala time." Hi Quitstorm, this is JS calling you. I have some issues that i would like you to help me with, are you in Kampala?" the voice behind the phone asked. I answered that am not in Kampala but if the issues are urgent, i will be making it tomorrow. He agreed.

JS is a pan Africanist. I have not asociated much with pan Africanism, whatever that means, I must say that it's one area that had never crossed my mind and never tried to look into the history of PanAfricanism. I have read somewhere that it started as a movement to empower and equip blacks wherever they are to stand up and take control of their destinies. If that's true, am not sure.

From my observation, Pan Africanism is a concept to extricate Africans from the grip of European/American colonialism; but yet, British/American Big Oil can get African leaders to sign contracts without obligating anyone to redistribute the wealth among the poor of Africans in Africa. Instead, the African leaders redistribute the oil wealth among members of their family and close friends. And try to extricate religious Africans from the psychosis of the Muslim and Christian religions! Lot's of luck!

There's a Pan Africanist movement in Uganda with a bold suitable offices in Kamwokya. I have talked to them and they happen to have one dream. That's creating a single Government for all the 53 countries of Africa. This is the same dream for Libyan President Muammer Gaddaffi, who will be joining other heads of Government in Kampala this July 2010 under African Union. This Sounds like another religion to me--get everyone in the world to unite and worship Allah. That was the dream of the Soviet Union--to unite the workers of the world under Communism, and this would solve everyone's problems.

The other problem with Pan Africans--which is pie-in-the-sky like Communism--is that it would erect barriers to Western technological developments. As humans, we must teach and learn from one another--regardless of national borders.

I must stand on the rooftop and shout loud that am against both, the East African political Federation and the Pan African single Government. (53 countries with one President). I am against this because, Countries in Africa are failing to fully build a functioning system of Governance desirable to its citizens and as a result, we see almost all 53 African Union member states failing and rotten. If you cannot manage a smaller territory, why would you dream of managing a huge empire like Africa? Give me one single Country in Africa which has suitable political governance system acceptable to its citizens. This topic deserve its own article which I will discuss soon.

I made a decision that very early in the morning, I will be in Kampala. I boarded a taxi at around 6am and arrived in Kampala at around 7am.Urgently jumped in another taxi to Zana where JS resides.

Zana is a small township along Entebbe Road but growing so rapidly. Its population is very depressing but the business environment can make you stay. Minutes after I jumped of the taxi, I felt like visiting a toilet/latrine. I have wanted to do this earlier before, but choose to hold on because no place to spot a public toilet anywhere.

Now I was in Zana. I quickly walked to the taxi tout and I kindly requested him to direct me to any public toilet facility. He pointed me to the market closely on the roadside and told me to ask the lady next to an electricity pole. There was a distance which I could hardly walk; the desire to visit the toilet was now even stronger than what I can hold on.

When I arrived to the market, I walked directly to the lady who the taxis tout said had the keys. This lady quickly pointed me to another lady; I tried to walk there with my thumbs holding my butt not to let anything out. This P lady now told me that someone had taken the keys, and he/she will not allow me to use the toilet which was almost 30 meters from where I was standing and it was invisible. I choose to either walk direct to JS or walk in someone's residence and seek help.

I walked to almost three homes and they didn't allow me to use their toilets even when they saw that I was in a harder situation, I walked to another place and this time, it was a kiosk restaurant and when I asked the lady if I could use the toilet, she pretended as if she didn't hear me, after explaining, she said in fluent Luganda that "SASULA SENTE" (pay money). I asked how much and why she couldn't immediately told that she wanted money in hand. She got the keys and walked me to the toilet. It had three rooms each closed with a padlock.

As we were walking there, I asked her if she had toilet paper and she kept quiet. This was too much for me; I have paid my money but still couldn't have a toilet tissue/paper. The toilet was extremely dirty and had a strong smell that affected my digestion system. When I told an American friend about this, he said that in his country, all restaurants and bars have their bathroom facilities open to the public. Members of the public can use them free of charge--even if they don't buy anything.

I felt good after this visit even though I felt unfairly treated by the people of Zana. Please dare not miss my next article as I finish the narration of this.

When uncelebrity life inspires lives.

I have taken long without writing on my blog. It's not because I dried up, but its because of some personal challenging moments I have been facing and still face. I am so pressed for time that I had to sacrifice my best morning show on my best Radio station. I also decided to get off Internet and spend only seven to ten minutes simply checking emails and answering those "troubling" questions about almost on everything: from politics, to pro-GLBT rights, pro-abortion rights, what I do to earn a living (This is one of the questions I get almost seven times a day not sure why people ask it, I rarely ask anyone what he/she does for a living. because this fake Government in Kampala sold all State owned companies, so almost 90 of the people in Kampala are survivors in their own means), to why I oppose over population and finally they ask me "what do I consider to be safer improved contraceptives for women".

This afternoon, I came online and found an online friend who happens to be in Kampala or I say in Uganda. I have known him for sometime now and he is really a good fan of me online. He reads almost everything I post but rarely comments. I never met him "Live", I mostly found him already left but his numerous foot prints always get seen by many.

This time, he was online live and when I initiated a chat with him, he replied very loudly, something that made me think that he had waited for a chat with me for long. He warmed up as if he did receive a call from the USA President Barack Obama. He went direct to the question that I least expected, "Hey hey Quitstorm, why are you not posting anything these days, have you dried up?" I took almost fifteen minutes convincing him that am still the old folk he knew and that I have not dried up. He then shared with me how "my boldness, frankness, zeal, and commitment" towards issues that concerns me make him even much stronger and happier but above all, my comments force him to stand up and be counted.

Honestly speaking, this was not the first time I heard anyone say it. I receive many emails from people, some who are not even in Kampala (but heard me on Radio) or read any of my advices somewhere, these emails are sent to express their appreciation for me for whatever am trying to push that can make Uganda a much more better place for all. Indeed I stand for better lives than well.

They thank me for not being fearful of the regime in Kampala (while I disagree with most of the polices that the National Resistance Movement government sells to Ugandans, I have not been a political activist in any way). I cannot stop imagining why the oppressed people of Uganda shouldn’t build up a resistance movement against the Pentecostal theocracy which describes the Museveni’s government.

Is Uganda a theocracy? Or a secular government where prayers are done in the closet? "And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. “For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others."--Matthew 6:5.

Instead of criminalizing the criminals in the Government, Museveni is offering prayer dinners while wasting out state funds with them. Come on, prayers cannot do any change; it’s just a way of talking to yourself when you are frustrated. My concerns affects the common man and that’s the one am standing up for and am doing this voluntarily, I must say it loud here that am not going to stand for any political office but of course I will campaign for the suitable candidate for presidency.

I make issues known, I also receive more emails abusing and threatening my life. I have also received strong criticism and to my critics, you owe me so much that I have dramatically improved on what I can do best.

Well, I told my online friend that, to honor the live chat, I will write a blog post for him and he accepted, I even shared a picture of me with him, he is extra-ordinary and very brave with ambition to create a name on the Ugandan stage but not through prayer robbery or child ritual killing!

He assured me that there are many fields where he can still contribute and make the name sound. He shared a little bit of them and my only advice to him was that...."Man, blow your own trumpets" if you have them, do not wait anyone to blow it for you.So my online friend, where you may be, please know that you are very close to my heart and that you will always be treasured in my life. Keep the good work up.

State murder for sexual affairs.

State murder for sexual affairs--or orientation--is itself on trial by the world.  Even in Iran, they've backed off from stoning a woman for "adultery."   The article says that it's not a fact that the death penalty has been lifted--but I think it will be.  Likewise, the Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2009 in Uganda will die in committee and will never see life.Read more here
