Pastor applauds Scots government aid to Malawi: Hails APM for welcoming openly gay minister

UK based Malawian multi-faith charitable organisation, ‘The Faith in Love Project’ director,  outspoken civil rights activist, Evangelist Elizabeth Kalonga has taken a sweeping commonsense ‘hashtag’ in applauding the Scottish Government for coming to the rescue of Malawi at a time the people of the impoverished southern African nation are going through economic meltdown.

In giving her round of applause to Her Majesty’s government after Glasgow sent to Lilongwe, David Mundell, a UK government minister of state who openly declared himself as a homosexual, to hand in financial aid  in the tune of K87 Billion (£86 million),  the Luton based blunt pastor, repeated the famous phrase “Gays needs love, not judgement” which has been internationally embraced for succinctly rejecting the notion that homosexuals are sinners in her brave commendation of the two governments.

Evangelist Kalonga who recently stirred a hornet’s nest for rallying support on gay people also commended Malawi President, Peter Mutharika for personally welcoming to Kamuzu Palace a UK cabinet minister amid public resistance on gay rights saying the Malawi government and its leadership has done a commendable job.

“Firstly, I would like to applaud the UK government through Scotland for sending out aid to Malawi at a time when people are dying of hunger. It was brave of the Scottish Government to send a gay politician to a country where homosexuals are vilified and secondly let me laud the Malawian government for taking a bold move in welcoming Mr Mundell with open arms.

“ It appears to me that the Malawi government now realises that gays must be embraced into our society, because they are part of us, they are as human as everybody else,” said Evangelist Kalonga.

Evangelist Kalonga said the money the Queen’s government send to Malawi through the British secretary of state, will not be spend on homosexuals or minority rights but will go a long way in alleviating hunger and other problems that the financially-strapped country is going through.

“I am happy that Malawi affably received Mr Mundell as just British politician with open hands and did not judge him for his sex orientation. This is stepping stone towards changing our attitudes on people. We must not judge people for who they are, who they want to love or what they choose to be. Judgement is not for us but for God. After all we are all sinners so there is no need for us to point others with dirty fingers,” she declared.

Evangelist Kalonga said President Mutharika and his government must stand firm on ground of authority to defend the interests of international laws and conventions as stipulated in the charter of international human rights laws adding that all citizens must be protected by law.

She said: “Malawi is a signatory and party to the international human rights treaty and it is criminal under these laws and the UN obligations to reprimand, hate, ostracise or chastise anyone for choosing to be who they are. My appeal to the government and the people of Malawi is that they must  stop living in the past and realise that times have changed. “

Evangelist Kalonga further took a swipe at the clergy in the country for promoting hate speech by preaching to the world that homosexuals are sinners saying such acts are dangerous to modernity and to the human race saying it is only God who has the power to judge who is a sinner and who is not and not a man.

“If God is love, why then must we, who claim to be men and women of God, preach detestation and abhorrence and so much hate to our faithful and encourage them to hate other people and label them as sinners or the filthy lot before God?” Kalonga asked matter-of-factly. “Seriously, in this time and age we still think being homophobic is a right way to go?”

‘Deep-seated mediocrity’

Kalonga chided those Malawians who reproach others for being themselves and for making different choices in their lives.

“Malawians must wake up from their deep slumber and start realising that our problems as a country are not homosexuals but our stinking attitudes towards our fellow human beings. As people, we pride ourselves being wicked. We’re stuck in our deep-seated mediocrity; we love to hate ourselves, always moving backwards. It is time we come to our senses that we cannot pick and choose rights among the human rights conventions.”

Kalonga further stated that every person mustn’t be discriminated against because of race, colour, creed, religious beliefs or sexual orientation.

“Why are we so bent on judging people based on their sexual orientation and judge them harshly on what they believe in and for their happiness other than their character?” she further asked.

The 53-year-old Scottish MP, David Mundell is a divorcee and has three grown up children, who has just finished his tour of duty in Malawi recently came out as a homosexual and he described his bold and barefaced decision to acknowledge his sexuality as one of the most important of his life.

Mundell visited Malawi at a time when the country is reeling from rising homophobic emotions with the majority of people in the conservative society and there have been comments from political, social and religious circles that that gay people are “worse than dogs” and should be killed.

In Malawi, a country that calls itself ‘a God fearing nation,’ gay sex is illegal and is punishable up to 14 years imprisonment.

Recently, the government suspended the law pending review but High Court Judge Dingiswayo Madise sitting in Mzuzu a few weeks ago  quashed the moratorium, effectively reinstating anti-homosexual laws.

I agree with the pastor. Only one point though. Gays have rights. So do thieves and murderers. They need to be away from normal people.

A Kalonga, which version of the Bible does your church use which tolerates mathanyula and kunyinula? You must be a foolish, ignorant and shameless evangelist Malawi has ever witnessed, perhaps you are also one of those who indulge nyinulaism. The way you look evangelist Kalonga really you are a nyinula evangelist, who is teaching your amayi amvano, achigwirizano, whatever you call them in that your devilish denomination this act of lesbianism.
