Persecution in Uganda
By Cheshire (articles ) | Jun 16, 2003
Two major items in the news this past week have been the cannibalizing of the helpless Mbuti Pygmies by the Congolese Army, and threats to the Church in Uganda by terrorists threatening to "beat nuns black and blue" and worse. Centuries from now, when political correctness, Deo volente, has evaporated, wise rulers will acknowledge that not one nation in Africa is happier now than when governed by the British foremost, and the French and Germans and Portuguese, the one exception being the rapacious King of the Belgians. Even Holy Church, fully aware of this, dare not admit it. The Africans are the chief victims of the decadent Western utopians who forced their "independence" and left them to suffer genocide, exploitation, plague, and social disintegration. An authentic African leader like Cardinal Arinze is a noble and prophetic voice, mocked by the Jesuits at Georgetown University who are the epicene Western heirs of the Eleanor Roosevelts and Dag Hamarskjolds and their fellow social Darwinists who experimented on Africa and then left it to rot.

Chesire, I have been saying this about Africa for years but never had your eloquence. Let's admit that the experiment of national self government in Africa is a failure. Until we admit that fact, we can not move ahead to address the problems.

Black Africa is a disaster. Its been forty years since these nations achieved their independence from European colonizers and all they have to show is genocide, corruption, hunger, rampant diseases and the most awful social disintegration. Unfortunately in the future it will be Moslem conquerors that will probably bring some measure of order to this beleaguered continent.
