Group Behind Uganda Anti Homosexuality Bill Expanding North America Effort

The Ugandan branch of a US-based evangelical group called "College of Prayer" played, as a new talk To Action report details, a major and little noticed role organizing and inspiring legislators behind the pending Anti Homosexuality Bill due to come before Uganda's parliament early in 2010. Homosexuality is already legally a crime in Uganda that can lead to lifetime prison sentences, but the new bill would mandate the death penalty for homosexual acts and critics have called it "genocidal" and charged that the bill could require the execution of HIV positive Ugandan citizens. As the College of Prayer website describes, the group is now organizing in Canada's parliament.
College of Prayer members in Uganda's parliament have spearheaded the push for the new anti-gay bill and, as a story posted on the main College of Prayer website quotes College of Prayer Canada head Rev. David Chotka,

"I have three-twelve members of the Canadian Parliament who have heard about what God is doing in Uganda and would like to attend the Parliamentary COP in Uganda next year. They are interested in bringing the College of Prayer to the Canadian Parliament."

The article concludes, "It seems that God continues to expand our spheres of influence. The extraordinary favor of God is resting upon us. All glory to His name!

As the Talk To Action report, Rick Warren's Dissertation Advisor Leads Network Promoting Uganda Anti-Gay Bill details, the president of Uganda's College of Prayer, Julius Oyet, has extensive ties to networks associated with C. Peter Wagner's New Apostolic Reformation. Peter Wagner is perhaps the world's leading expert on church growth, and he is an unabashed Christian supremacist. Wagner was also advisor for Rick Warren's 1993 dissertation... on church growth. The report traces ties and parallels between Rick Warren's and Peter Wagner's ideologies and global networks.

Peter Wagner's New Apostolic Reformation is coalescing out of a global religious tendency  known as the Third Wave which was estimated in 2000 to encompass 295 million Christians worldwide. For over a decade Wagner and his close working associate Ted Haggard, former National Association of Evangelicals, exported distinctive Third Wave and New Apostolic ideas, concerning expelling demon spirits, hunting witches and raising the dead, from Haggard's Colorado Springs church to Africa and the developing world.

Through association with Thomas Muthee and Alaska evangelist Mary Glazier both Sarah Palin and her most significant Alaska church, the Wasilla Assembly of God, are closely tied totop leaders in Peter Wagner's New Apostolic Reformation and its distinctive prayer warfare networks.

On August 16, 2005, Sarah Palin was blessed and anointed by a man Peter Wagner has described as a close personal friend, Kenyan evangelist Thomas Muthee. While Palin was still officially a member of the Wasilla Assembly of God, her church raised tens of thousands of dollars to finance Thomas Muthee's Kenya ministry. Before anointing Palin during the August 16, 2005 event Thomas Muthee detailed, in a short speech, the Seven Mountains mandate, an organizing and inspirational concept for Peter Wagner's movement which encourages believers to win positions of power and influence in key societal sectors such as government, business, education, and media. The 7-M Mandate is also promoted by College of Prayer Uganda President Juliius Oyet. As Os Hillman, one of the members of Peter Wagner's International Coalition of Apostles (ICA) and a friend of Julius Oyet's has described, in 2006 Oyet traveled to Dallas, Texas, to meet with ICA leadership. The Uganda Anti Homosexuality Bill has also been linked to the Washington D.C.-based evangelical group known as The Family. The globally influential group is the subject of a 2008 book by journalist Jeff Sharlet, The Family: Power, Politics and Fundamentalism's Secret Elite.

Rick Warren has issued a very clear statement condemning the proposed law against homosexuals in Uganda.

Thanks to Bruce Wilson, Bill Berkowitz and PRA, woh collectively really turned the heat on Warren to speak.
