The President of Zambia recently received criticism for his country’s stance against sodomy. The Trump Administration has expressed concern for Zambia’s sodomy laws before, but U.S. Ambassador Daniel Foote has now threatened to pull U.S. aid after two men received fifteen year jail sentences for the perverse act. President Lungu responded quite appropriately by banishing Foote from Zambia. Earlier in December, Lungu reaffirmed his country’s position: “We know that there could be people who are homosexual in Zambia. But we don’t want to promote it, because we frown upon it — the practice. Most of us say it’s wrong. It’s unbiblical, un-Christian and we don’t want it.” (source)
Now when is the last time you heard a politician in the U.S. call sodomy “unbiblical” and “un-Christian?” Exactly. We have more money, but the Zambians seem to have more honor. Some supporting the LGBTQ+ agenda have attempted to twist Lungu’s frustration to be about corruption within his administration, not about sodomy (see here).
It’s important to keep in mind that the world will end with agenda’s like LGBTQ+ being put to shame. You may feel like affirming sodomy is the popular position, or that transgender ideology is the way the world is turning. However, in the context of history, these ideas are alien and extremely unpopular. Looking into the future, people will be sitting around camp fires laughing about how once-upon-a-time some people couldn’t tell the difference between a boy and a girl. One day, history conferences will be convened to condemn the past-evil of abortion. Some time soon, nations will come together to issue joint-statements on the depravity of sodomy.
So let’s not lose our heads. President Lungu is on the right side of history.
