Who would have thought it? But then again, they are half-brothers, who have not had much contact with each other, or at least, that is the impression I get. More power to him, he is exercising his right to vote for who he wants to, but I don't think this is particularly damning of the Obama presidency.

Obama's Kenyan Half-Brother Also Embraces Trump Because He Perceives The GOP To Be Anti-Gay


> Excerpt from the July 24, 2016 CBS News story by Julia Boccagno cited by sikeospi entitled:

Report: Obama's Half-Brother Says He Wants Trump To Win

Though Obama resides in Kenya, he remains a resident of Maryland, where he used to work as an accountant, according to public records. Reasons for his change in party affiliation, he cites, include FBI Director James Comey's recent decision not to prosecute Secretary Clinton for the mishandling of her private email server as well as his brother's "disappointing" intervention in Libya that led to the death of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011 -- a "close friend" of Malik Obama.

On behalf of the Secretary's email misuse, he told The Post, "she should have known better as the custodian of classified information." And, he continued, "I still feel that getting rid of Gaddafi didn't make things any better in Libya."

However, there's one more explanation for his newly pledged allegiance to the "party of Lincoln" - same sex marriage, a hot-button issue seemingly embedded into the social fabric of the Republican Party.

"I feel like a Republican now because they don't stand for same-sex marriage, and that appeals to me," he said.

Just last Thursday -- the final night of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland -- Republicans made efforts to appear LGBT friendly. Peter Thiel, a top Silicon Valley venture capitalist, challenged typically held-conservative beliefs while exclaiming his pride as both a Republican and gay man. Soon after, Donald Trump even further courted the LGBT community in his acceptance speech....


______________________________________________



What an irony to discover that President Barak Obama's own Kenyan half-brother clash over an issue that underscore the Dominionist thrust into modern-day African politics. It would also appear that Ground Zero of the Dominionist anti-gay legislative drive has shifted from Uganda into other regions of Africa, too. Most interestingly, Obama's half-brother appears to embrace Trump because he perceives the Republican Party to be anti-gay. What an epiphany! LOL!


> Excerpts from the March 8, 2015 opinion column appearing in the UK Guardian written by Jonathan Cooper, chief executive of Human Dignity Trust, entitled:

Kenya's Anti-Gay Laws Are Leaving LGBT Community At The Mercy Of The Mob
The failure to investigate attacks against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people shows criminalization has led to impunity and dangerous stigma



The Kenyan MP Irungu Kang’ata leads an anti-gay caucus in chanting slogans against the LGBT community during a July march in Nairobi, Kenya.

There have been at least six incidents of mob violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Kenya since 2008, Human Rights Watch and fellow rights organisation Pema Kenya revealed recently. The local police failed to investigate any of them.

Sadly, this is unsurprising. It is the foreseeable and tragic consequence of laws that criminalise people on the basis of their sexuality and gender identity.

In Kenya, consenting adults can face up to 14 years in prison for having same-sex relations. They can be imprisoned for up to 7 years for merely attempting to have such sexual relations, and up to 5 years for committing “gross indecency” – a vague offense that is frequently levelled at LGBT people. Men who are merely suspected of being gay can be forced to undergo invasive anal testing in the erroneous belief that the procedure can determine their sexual orientation. These statutes brand LGBT people as undeserving of empathy, dignity, or the protection of the law.

Predictably, the stigma caused by such regulations leads to incidents of harassment, discrimination and mob violence against LGBT people, dividing communities and families, and undermining the rule of law. These attackers consider themselves vigilantes with a duty to uphold laws that criminalise same-sex relationships.

The state’s apathy – and often open hostility – towards LGBT people merely encourages the aggressors, who know they will face no adverse consequences if their victim does not appear to be straight. Criminalisation provides a licence for the perpetration of horrific crimes - even murder- against a vulnerable group.

Francis Wanjohi, a coast regional police commander, recently told the Thomson Reuters Foundation: “Police are meant to protect everybody, and that is what we do. When we receive any report, we must investigate. That is our job … But again, you do not expect to be protected when you engage in criminal and unacceptable behaviour.”

The message to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people is clear: they should not expect the basic protection of the state. When your sexuality – your very identity – is a criminal offence, you live as a felon who has not been caught, and you cannot trust even the police in your community to protect you from appalling violence.

In Kenya, LGBT people are marginalized and cannot participate freely in society. The recent World Bank Sogi report on India and the Williams Institute report both demonstrate the economic value of diversity and the damage to GDP as a result of homophobia and criminalization. Although it benefits all of us to prioritise inclusivity, LGBT people cannot freely participate in society when exposure may cost them their lives.



Bracelet worn by a counter-protester on a march in Nairobi


President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration claims to be proud of its open and outward-looking democracy, yet its version of democracy systematically excludes people on the totally arbitrary basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

At the UN general assembly last month, the president reiterated Kenya’s commitment to the sustainable development goals, and in particular to the eradication of gender-based violence. It is inconsistent for him to acknowledge at the UN that “we cannot reach our development goals without addressing human rights and complex humanitarian issues at the same time” when, during President Obama’s state visit, he dismissed LGBT rights as “a non-issue”.

Criminalization of homosexuality justifies treating LGBT people differently and thus makes equality before the law unattainable. It is reminiscent of the laws that once denied women the right to vote – of the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany, the racially segregationist policies of apartheid South Africa, pre-civil rights America – because it treats one category of people as lesser citizens, lesser people.

As Obama said on his recent visit to Kenya: “As an African-American in the U.S., I am painfully aware of the history of what happens when people are treated differently, under the law.”

We must condemn these laws with the same outrage as we would any that differentiated between people on the basis of their sex, religion or colour of their skin. It is a terrible fact that in 2015, LGBT people live as second-class citizens in 78 jurisdictions worldwide, because of the scourge of criminalization of homosexuality.

This latest news from Kenya is a direct consequence of laws that deem LGBT people to be “other”, denying them their fundamental dignity and human rights.

> Excerpt from the March 18, 2015 UK Guardian news story by Antony Loewenstein entitled:

U.S. Evangelicals In Africa Put Faith Into Action But Some Are Accused Of Promoting Intolerance
While some modern missionaries are aware of the colonial legacies attached to their work, evangelical churches continue to provide aid while promoting an explicitly anti-gay agenda – which Christian nations are more likely to support.



Nancy and Shelvis Smith-Mather, pictured with their two children, live and work in South Sudan. The Presbyterian Church USA refers to them as "mission co-workers" rather than missionaries.

In the small town of Yei, in southern South Sudan, missionary reverend Shelvis Smith-Mather closed his eyes and prayed. On a searing hot February day, wearing a yellow tie and dusty black shoes, the 35-year-old man from Atlanta, Georgia, was opening a community forum dedicated to reconciliation in a country torn by war. “We are flesh and blood,” he said. “We have flaws. But with God’s work, we can work well for peace.”

The meeting, held at the Reconcile Peace Institute near the borders with Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, gathered a group of male and female adult students. Later, they were asked to imagine the community they wanted by 2030: They listed an end to tribalism and skin markings, better education and human rights, God-fearing citizens and freedom of speech.

These are ambitious targets in a country engulfed by a civil war that has killed tens of thousands, where children are being abducted to fight, and where rape is endemic. Millions also currently face severe hunger. This wasn’t the dream in 2011 when South Sudan became independent, gaining the title of the world’s newest nation. President George W. Bush liked the idea of a Christian nation adjacent to Islamic Sudan after September 11, and President Barack Obama continued to uphold this vision, though with less enthusiasm.

Reconcile, which has trained hundreds of people in conflict analysis and leadership, was established in 2003 by indigenous church groups to push a faith-based vision for South Sudan, which has a population of approximately 11m people – 60% of whom are Christians, 32% holding traditional beliefs such as animism, and roughly 6% are Muslims.

Smith-Mather is Reconcile’s principal. He moved to Yei from Kenya with his wife Nancy in 2011. They live in a simple brick house with their two young children and intend to stay for another three years as employees of the Presbyterian Church USA and Reformed Church in America. Their organisation calls them “mission co-workers”, not missionaries, in an effort to show they’re collaborating with, not directing, local partners. Yei also has a leading maternity and children’s hospital run by medical missionaries from Harvesters Reaching the Nations.

Both Shelvis and Nancy are deeply aware of the historical baggage associated with missionary work. Nancy recalled being in South Sudan’s Jonglei state, where she met a black woman who told her that her white skin was more beautiful than her own. “Maybe that message came from a missionary,” she told me. “Maybe it was just from colonialism, or from the common belief that what comes from outside is somehow better than what exists here.”

She hoped that her time in Africa would allow her to break down those destructive perceptions. Shelvis agreed. “I’m often asked why in the world would you go to South Sudan and live there when there’s war and challenges?” Nancy said. “Because of my faith my response is, ‘How could I not?’ God calls us into the places of suffering.”

I asked Shelvis and Nancy about U.S. pastors and missionary churches funding and supporting anti-gay legislation in Uganda. “It’s counter to the message of love I understand coming from faith,” Nancy argued. Shelvis, for his part, said that “many religious leaders in South Sudan would say homosexuality does not exist in the country” and “there’s a certain deference that I need to have for conversations being had here, and be respectful of those.”

However, Shelvis stressed, “Regardless of an individual’s particular viewpoint on homosexuality, as Christians living in a broken world, we have to be careful to match our zeal for our faith with the same standard of compassion, love and mercy that Christ offered to those whom opposed his views.”

Hunter Farrell, World Mission director for the Presbyterian Church USA, tells me that the church pays seven missionaries in Sudan and South Sudan. It spent around $1,000,000.00 there in 2014 and currently prioritises the South Sudan education and peace building program, which aims to raise $2,300.000.00 to improve education for tens of thousands of children. World Mission’s 2014 budget was $28,000,000.00, and it operates around the world, from El Salvador to Sri Lanka.



Students of the Reconcile Peace Institute, one of the largest leadership training centers in the country.

But not all missionaries in Africa are as understanding as Shelvis and Nancy – something made clear when considering how belief and homosexuality collide across the continent.

Africa is by and large conservative, and many poor countries are susceptible to charity with a socially conservative agenda. It’s within this context that many US evangelical churches go to Africa to win the battles that are being lost at home. Many of them subscribe to the dominionist movement, which supports turning secular governments into Christian theocracies. They pressure NGOs {Non-Government Organizations) not to accept Christians in same-sex marriages. Missionaries have traversed the length and breadth of Africa for centuries, so this 21st century American campaign is just the latest in a long line of foreign influence.

From gay marriage to abortion rights and birth control, the last decades have seen huge strides in the West towards minimizing discrimination and encouraging equality. Hatred still exists, but public opinion has experienced a sea change towards accepting difference.

The Rev. Jackson George Gabriel, the curate of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan, tells me that he welcomes outside encouragement, confirming that the American branch of his church “are telling us to stand firm against homosexuality”. In a country where President Salva Kiir has said that homosexuality will “always be condemned by everybody”, and where the public shaming of gay South Sudanese by local tabloid media is growing, his stance enjoys a lot of support.

Gabriel fears Western influence is fundamentally changing African societies for the worse. “Western society is trying to destroy us,” he says. “Behaviors such as fornication, spirit of independence, gay rights, no respect for elders, abortion and birth control are being imported. African leaders must maintain our culture.” He says the archbishop of the local Episcopal church is currently directing his ministries to investigate if they receive any funds from foreign churches that back homosexual rights. “If so, they must cut all ties,” Gabriel says.

These attitudes mirror the social agenda of many U.S. evangelicals organizations which have both charitable and ideological agendas.

Samaritan’s Purse, run by Franklin Graham, son of the Christian evangelist Billy Graham, has a large presence in Africa and been active in Sudan since 1993. Along with providing food, fishing kits, water, shelter, training, hygiene and medical supplies, the group proselytizes, screens the evangelical "Jesus Film" to thousands of people and rebuilds churches (“People are open to the Gospel here,” says country director Brock Kreitzburg). As a global enterprise, it has also been accused of blurring the line between Church and State during its emergency relief work in developing countries.

Graham is a powerful figure, having met Kiir and Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir many times to advocate for the country’s Christians. He visited South Sudan in March, prayed with Kiir and the rebel leader Riek Machar, and inaugurated an airport hangar in Kenya. Graham is also anti-gay, backing Russia’s draconian laws against sexual minorities. He told delegates at a recent Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference to “get involved in politics. [The] gays and lesbians are in politics [and] all the anti-God people are.”

Despite repeated requests, the group refused to provide details on the amount of money it currently spends in South Sudan, though its 2013 financial report said that in 2012 it had more than $2,000,000.00 of expenses in the nation and raised more than $376,000,000.00 worldwide.




Part of the agenda of U.S. evangelical churches is explored in a 2014 report by the Rev. Kapya Kaoma called "American Culture Warriors in Africa: A Guide to the Exporters of Homophobia and Sexism", which is endorsed by Catholic Bishop Desmond Tutu. Kaoma is an Anglican priest from Zambia now living and working in the U.S. with the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts due to threats against his life. His work paints a picture of the myriad of U.S. groups and their African allies who, he says, are “seeking to impose their intolerant – and even theocratic – interpretations of Christianity on the rest of the world”.

This includes the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), whose founders are televangelist Pat Robertson and lawyer Jay Sekulow. The organization has visited South Sudan’s leadership with aims to influence its political agenda. The organization has pushed for the criminalizing of abortion and homosexuality across Africa and operates in Russia, Israel, and Europe. The Republican Presidential hopeful Jeb Bush recently appointed Sekulow’s son, Jordan, to be his “liaison” with religious conservatives.

Human Life International, a far-right American Catholic group working in Nigeria and Tanzania, opposes abortion and contraception. Stephen Phelan, its director of mission communications, tells me that the problem lies with secular aid groups, not evangelicals. He condemns “wealthy governments and enormous NGOs spending billions each year to impose their culture on Africa, including values that are literally foreign to African families … At times these funds actually go to aid Africans who live in less developed parts of the continent, but a great deal more is spent on population control than on wells, roads and medicine combined.”

In Uganda, American evangelicals have partnered, and sometimes trained, local pastors and church leaders to push extreme, anti-gay legislation. Leading newspapers outed people as “top homosexuals”, such as Frank Mugisha, and gay men and women face discrimination and violence.

The documentary "God Loves Uganda" documents this political evolution by focusing on the American missionary organisation International House of Prayer (IHOP) and its work in Uganda. Spokesman Jono Hall, who appears in the film, tells me that the group does “not have any organizational presence in Uganda or any other part of east Africa, and we do not have any intention to”.






The film’s director, Roger Ross Williams, explains to the Guardian that the “only response from the International House of Prayer (IHOP) has been denial, denial, denial.... I screened the documentary in Kansas City, Missouri (where IHOP is headquartered) a number of times, and IHOP folks came and someone even stood up and said they were ashamed of their church. We also flew IHOP leaders to New York to screen the film and had a three-hour conversation with them afterwards. They said it made them think about how they spread the word. But then they continued to spread hate and even invited anti-gay pastors from Africa to Kansas City to speak to their congregations just the same.” Williams warns that growing numbers of American churches are operating in Rwanda, Ghana, Cameroon and Malawi.

In Uganda, a key supporter of the movement to stigmatize gay citizens is the U.U. lawyer and activist Scott Lively (who recently wrote that Obama “orchestrated a coup” in Ukraine to support the LGBT agenda). During multiple visits to Uganda since 2002, Lively has spoken of Africans resisting the “disease” of homosexuality.






Lively justifies his opinions in a way similar to Phelan. When I probed him on this, he explained that he doesn’t “want Africans to experience the same collapse of their family-centerd Christian infrastructure that is still unfolding in America and Europe. I went to Uganda to warn Africans of the goals and tactics of the homosexual political movement.”

He tells me that his mission in Uganda was “to focus on prevention and rehabilitation of homosexuality. The western media know this but deliberately portray me falsely as an architect of the overly harsh and punitive law the Ugandan government eventually passed.” Lively says he currently has no plans to return to Africa but still supports a Bible school in Kenya. He also believes evidence shows that President Obama is gay.

His advocacy in Uganda was challenged by a lawsuit brought by the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of the group Sexual Minorities Uganda; they argued that Lively’s ministries constituted persecution. CCR’s lead counsel on the case, Pamela Spees, tells me that although proceedings remain in the discovery phase and the next major court date will likely be 2016, the “campaign to export discriminatory, anti-gay policies into Uganda and Africa more broadly has been remarkably successful”.

However, Spees says that the significance of the court case “cannot be overstated. For Ugandans who have been able to come to the United States for court hearings and meet activists in Massachusetts, who are also working to raise awareness about Lively’s efforts abroad, it’s an example of forging human connections, solidarity and of bringing awareness – and in some ways is its own form of accountability.”

Despite the huge challenges and growing homophobic campaigns across Africa, Kaoma is optimistic. “I can prayerfully say every tear and drop of blood of African sexual minorities is the step towards total liberation,” he says. He cites a resolution tabled in Angola in 2014 by the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights that condemned “acts of violence, discrimination and other human rights violations” against sexual minorities.

Bishop Senyonjo of Uganda, a rare voice in his country advocating for LGBT rights, also hopes that churches will change their ways. “Evangelicals, wherever they come from the U.S. and elsewhere, should bring good news of inclusion and love of God rather than sowing seeds of discrimination and hate,” he tells me before adding: “The Gospel is supposed to be liberating to marginalized people.”

My half-brother is also a veteran. He lives with his wife and children in central Indiana and has a job that could be affected by local politics. I figure he is at least publicly supporting the Trump/Pence ticket. May even have a sign in his yard.

Then you may want to consider disabusing your naive relatives of that notion since Pence as Vice President would stand a chance one day of running for President himself imposing on the nation even worse policies of a more overt Dominionist nature than what he did to Indiana -- and Indiana would again be revisited by the extremist policies of Mike Pence on an even more imposing scale.
