Give to the Lord, Ye Families of the Nations

Ascribe to the Lord, O clans of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength! Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him! Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth; yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”

Today, I launched a very simple but very important website.
I do not think that I have done a simpler website before—it is essentially a single page—and had it been any simpler, it would have been merely a webpage.
Yet also I have never done a more-important website, because by it I call upon every Ugandan to express dissatisfaction with the prevailing secularist system.

It is called A General Declaration of Christian Uganda on Nation and State, has four points to make, and, right out of the gate, it affirms that the Bible is the word of God, and therefore authoritative. One may note that even this “axiomatic” point is self-referential because, like the other three points, it is shored up by a citation or two from the Bible. However, it also states that the Bible’s proof of being “the Bible” is found in the Bible itself—the Bible proves its own being-the-Bible. All authoritative documents are self-referential, but only the word of God may not be subjected to ultimate dependence on any other for such authority.

The next thing it states is that the secularist dispensation is illegitimate. A secularist constitution is easy enough to refute: my God versus your god. If, against the ragings and frothings of a billion secularists, I am established of God, there is no contest.

The next interesting thing in the document is that I maintain that insomuch as Uganda is a nation, she has always appeared as Christian from the dawn of her history. This, of course, cannot be contested, because the very name “Uganda” was coined from the mouth of a missionary, and around then Uganda was discussed as an independent polity in the British parliament (the question was whether this Uganda qualified for treaty defence from Egyptian aggression—affirmative). Before all that, in 1876, eleven months before the first CMS missionary landed, even Egypt, by the hand of Colonel Charles Gordon, recognised the independence of Christian Uganda in response to a fiercely Christian letter that Mutesa, the then-king of Uganda had dispatched by the hand of a humbled muslim invader.

The British queen at that time even received one of the many letters signed with Christian styles, from the Ugandan king, offering formal relations on the grounds of shared Christianity. The secularists of today trivialise or deny these things, but they will be their condemnation ultimately.
All the interest that was then stirred up all over the World about “Uganda” was strictly on Christian grounds, until the British Protectorate was set up. This being a British Protectorate, sharing law and parliament with all Britain, it was necessarily Christian as Britain was—and as a result, Uganda had a Christian state for longer than it has ever had a non-Christian state.

At any rate, regardless of prevailing statecraft, Uganda, the nation, is Christian de souche, from first to last. We don’t call them “Uganda Martyrs” for nothing. —Even though a stupid and purjurous and wicked nation denies their legacy—that Christ reign as king of kings—while feigning association with them once a year.

The last point is that islam is a criminal heresy by its very nature, and the fact that the secularist constitution tolerates it is proof-positive of the stupidity of secularism.

This is a document that I consider authoritative enough that I will be distinguishing associations based on their accesion to it. However, since it decries the secularism enshrined in the constitution, it may invite retribution against all those who express assent; but I will consider cowardice in this matter as just as bad as opposition to it. The signing of it is not difficult—name and address, please—such that no excuse remains to not sign it except that one is a secularist. I abhor such.
