Surge Summary: Certain countries in Africa are practically alone in resisting the pro-LGBTQ agenda among modern nations. Their courageous response ought to set the tone for the United States.

Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., congratulated Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni for his defense of Christian values. “Africa is our hope for the future,” Morse said.

At the Inter-Parliamentary Conference on Family Values and Sovereignty, at which more than 22 African countries participated, Pres. Museveni said of the LGBTQ ideology: “Africa should provide the lead to save the world from this degeneration and decadence which is really very dangerous for humanity. If people of the opposite sex stop appreciating one another then how will the human race be propagated?”

Morse responded: “African nations have been under relentless pressure to legalize abortion and same-sex relations, but have wisely resisted. Pres. Museveni went to the heart of the matter: With moral anarchy has come drastically falling fertility. Sub-Saharan Africa is the only region with above-replacement fertility.”

“Once, the West colonized Africa for its resources,” Morse noted. “Now, it’s trying to engage in cultural colonization. Instead, Africans should colonize us with what used to be called Western values.”

In 2019, Morse addressed the Uganda National Youth Conference on “The New Colonialism of the Sexual Revolution: An Authentic Catholic Response.”
