I've just put sanctions on Zambia and designated their government a terrorist organization. Tariffs are coming! VERY DISRESPECTFUL! https://t.co/kDLkW3miB5— Emperor President God King BIumpf (@PunishedGodKing) December 8, 2019
Zambia’s president would rather lose foreign aid than submit to Trump and have his country succumb to the pressure of Big Fag like Botswana.
“December 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The U.S. ambassador to Zambia quoted Pope Francis this week in urging the people of Zambia to adopt a softer line on homosexuality, amid an ongoing debate over a 15-year prison sentence for two men convicted of sodomy.
Japhet Chabata and Steven Samba were convicted last year of sex “against the order of nature,” with Judge Charles Zulu rejecting an appeal of their sentence last week.
Daniel Foote, the U.S. Ambassador to Zambia, responded that he was “horrified” by the “oppressive sentencing,” which he said would “do untold damage to Zambia’s international reputation by demonstrating that human rights in Zambia (are) not a universal guarantee.” He also contrasted the punishment with government officials’ alleged ability to “steal millions of public dollars without prosecution.” …”
“The Zambian president’s tough defence of his anti-homosexual views in an exclusive interview with Sky News has sparked outrage from the country’s US ambassador.
American diplomat Daniel Foote has now threatened to cut aid.
The Zambians, in response, say they intend to lodge a demarche – an official diplomatic complaint demanding action from the US president against his envoy.
Zambian President Edgar Lungu and America’s top diplomat in the country are at loggerheads over the jailing of two homosexuals under an archaic law which dates back to British colonial times. …
President Lungu’s remarks on Sky News seem to have infuriated the ambassador even further.
The president said: “We know that there could be people who are homosexual in Zambia but we don’t want to promote it.
“We frown on it… the practice… most of us think it’s wrong… it’s unbiblical and unchristian… and we don’t want it.” “
“The US ambassador to Zambia has said he has been threatened over his comments on the sentencing of a gay couple, deepening a diplomatic row.
Daniel Foote said he was “horrified” by the jailing of Japhet Chataba and Steven Samba.
A judge quashed an appeal against their conviction last week, sentencing them both to 15 years in prison.
Same-sex relationships are outlawed in Zambia, where British colonial-era laws on homosexuality still apply.
Mr Foote implored the Zambian government to review the case and its homosexuality laws, but has since faced a backlash for doing so. …”
Chick-fil-A won’t even hold the line against homosexuality in this country. Trump is promoting it in the name of conservatism!
Note: Zambia is putting morality over money. Radical concept!
