The Uganda Martyrs are a group of 23 Anglican and 22 Catholic converts to Christianity in the historical kingdom of Buganda, now part of Uganda, who were executed between 31 January 1885 and 27 January 1887.
“the immediate cause of the killings was the refusal of the pages to engage in homosexual practices”. The king, who by tradition had the power of life and death over his subjects, was angered by this refusal to obey his wishes to have sex with him.
I’m sure that there will be similar martyrs in the post-modern, post-Christian West, one day…
If there really was no shame in that, why would one need to hide it the morning after?
Never marry a woman of a more liberal strain within your tradition; watch out for those that do end up in your fold because of foolish brethren
(Note: this post mostly applies to Protestants, IMO, but perhaps there may be analogues within other Christian traditions, I don’t know.)
Something I’ve observed a number of brothers falling prey to: marrying a woman not from their own particular denomination, but from a more liberal one from the same tradition.
For instance, a brother from, say, the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, meeting a nice fellow Lutheran girl, but one from within the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, deciding to pursue a relationship with her. (Or, to use a Canadian equivalent, a brother from the Lutheran Church – Canada, pursuing a Lutheran gal from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.)
After all, she’s a fellow Lutheran, right? As long as she’s not like some tattooed slut priestess like Nadia Bolz-Weber, surely, it doesn’t matter, right?
It always matters.
Might as well be unequally yoked, frankly.
Because unless she converted to your more confessional, conservative, traditionalist Protestant denomination of the same tradition as her own, prior to meeting you, she’s only doing it so she can be with you.
Which means she brings all her baggage with her – all her more progressive, anti-traditionalist POV with her, into your flock.
That makes her a Trojan horse. A wolf in sheep’s clothing.
And she’s hardly likely to be particularly submissive and deferential, compliant towards you.
Don’t do it.
And keep on your guard against such women brought into your fold by foolish brethren.
Don’t trust them unless they appear to have had a full change of heart and mind.
Which they won’t have.
Wolves in sheep’s clothing.
They’ll push their husband and your denomination in a more progressive direction.
Keep your eyes on them, always. Watch for promotion of heretical ideologies, or a push for more ‘peace’ rather than conflict against heresy / societal promotion of prog ideals / policies.
Between this, and the blackface scandal, which showed him to be a hypocrite and a fool, the only question is how bad the Grits will lose…
(Not that a Tory victory thrills me particularly, but if the PPC can just manage to get a toehold… Who knows what the future might hold for them…)
