Kasese Humanist School, Uganda

A practical help is to support humanism in Uganda....

Kasese Humanist School

Here's why you should. From (2016):

... “If you’re thinking about religiosity in Uganda today, it often feels like a very Christian country. People are very public about their religious identity.”

When President George W. Bush was in office, political operatives sought to reinforce a Protestant connection between Ugandan officials and the American religious conservatives. The Fellowship, a religious organization that functions similarly to a lobbying firm, helped Pennsylvania Congressman Joe Pitts redirect millions in U.S. aid to Uganda to abstinence-only education programs. Religious officials came out of the woodwork. There were condom burnings and religious rhetoric became much more common in parliament. Anti-gay sentiment became common in public speeches, a trend that came to a head with the passage of the 2014 Anti-Homosexuality Act, which made sodomy (and it’s slightly unclear what else) punishable by life in prison. Though that law was never very actively enforced, its militancy is reflective of the strength and tenor of the Ugandan movement towards an almost belligerent form of Protestantism.

Ugandan Archbishop: Government Should Give 10% of Citizens’ Salaries to Church

Wiki: Irreligion in Uganda is uncommon among Ugandans, as Christianity is the predominant faith. Only 0.9% of Ugandans claim no religion. Most Ugandans are considered religious and there is a great stigma attached to being a non-believer. Unquote.

Superstition is a human curse...

(Well, the video appeals to me. That's how I feel about it.)
