Ugandan Archbishop Has No Idea He Just Made Things Worse for Ugandan Men by Urging Wives to Stop Beating their Husbands

In what Breitbart called “an odd twist,” Ugandan Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has acted on news that Ugandan domestic violence is equally likely to be perpetrated by wives as husbands by issuing a statement to the women of Uganda.  He admonished wives to stop beating their husbands, saying they “should love and respect them” rather than hitting them.

Things may have turned out better for Ugandan men had the Archbishop stopped there, but he continued, making the worst possible misstep.  We’re not making this up.

Do you want to take over power from men in your families? I think you want to challenge God who tells us that men are the heads of the family.  Stop torturing the innocent servants of God.  There is no need for you to behave like some people we are seeing nowadays in the country who are merciless.

As this statement was televised, men around the city of Kampala were leaving work, and were able to see it spoken on lobby monitors.  They were seen to immediately turn around and return to their offices, perhaps to sleep there for the night.  Those who had stopped by lounges and bars also caught the announcement on the bar screens, and stared open-mouthed as the bishop criticized their wives, some dropping their beers and cocktails on the floor.  The sound of breaking tumblers and pilsner glasses was deafening, and almost drowned out the sound of cursing.

  1. Social justice warriors are almost all offended when Michelle (or is it “Mitchell) Obama is referred to as an angry shrill, harpy, fish wife.

    On to my main point – women should be Stepford Wives. That’s all I have to say on the matter.

    • I agree, Larry. What’s wrong with easy-going, efficient, attractively dressed Stepford wives? They don’t beat their husbands. Dinner’s always on time. What’s not to like?

      • Fredd says:

        Oh, man, are you guys stepping in it. Does the Gruntessa read this crap you write, Grunt?

        • She does. In fact, she read your comment while I was sleeping in today, and she told me some guy named Fredd commented who didn’t get the parody. I didn’t have the heart to tell her it wasn’t satire. So don’t tell her! 🙂

          Truthfully, Gruntessa was not offended by the Stepford Wives comment because she’d have to take a couple steps down to be a Stepford Wife. She’s way more awesome than that. Also, she’s met Larry in person, so she appreciates his humor. Not that he was joking in this case… 😉

    • I’ve always found the Stepford Wives pretty attractive, LL. And guess what, they are.

  3. Michelle. She was First “Lady”, I remember that.

      Lone star… I know the time is short until we won’t have to be concerned as to whether the Wookiee gets offended, but for now, try to be culturally sensitive to the pair that inviturd vile obscene crude vulgar profane rap singers into OUR White House, who, in their lyrics, refer to “wimmin” with terms like “bitches” and “Ho’s”. So for the purposes of being appropriately respectful of the “alternate” value for women, please refer to magilla obama as “The First Ho”! You may not know how your insensitivity to their animalistic proclivities may bite you in the caboose.
