‘I want to take a break from the usual does-science-contradict-faith controversies and look at the intersection of faith and science in another way … from the perspective of the Kony 2012 campaign.’
LOL: A co-founder for #invisiblechildren, Jason Russell, 33, was detained in Pacific Beach Thursday, allegedly found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, according to San Diego Police Department.
‘The campaign and accompanying film advocate — via technological assistance, training and the presence of United States military personnel throughout Central Africa — for military support of the government of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, ostensibly to facilitate the arrest of Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebel group and an accused war criminal indicted by the International Criminal Court.’
‘Kony is a grotesque war criminal, to be sure, but the Ugandan government currently in power also came to power through the use of kadogo (child soldiers) and fought alongside militias employing child soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo, something that Invisible Children seem wilfully ignorant of.
By blindly supporting Uganda’s current government and its military adventures beyond its borders, as Invisible Children suggests that people do, Invisible Children is in fact guaranteeing that there will be more violence, not less, in Central Africa.’
‘KONY 2012: Joseph Kony is a Ugandan guerrilla group leader, head of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a group engaged in a violent campaign to establish theocratic government based on the Ten Commandments throughout Uganda.’
