Based in Northern Uganda and the Sudan, the Lord's Resistance Army was financed and equipped by Sudan's Islamic government. And that is because the LRA seeks to destabilize and overthrow the government of Uganda - which is both expansionist and one of the most ruthless Islamic regimes on the planet. Formed in 1992, the group's founder, Joseph Kony, claims to be a mystic who receives orders from spirits during nightly dreams.
Those who like to discredit Christianity assert that the LRA promotes a radical form of Christianity although there is no correlation between Yahweh's Scriptures and Joseph Kony's preaching or behavior. The group seeks to achieve its objectives through unbridled brutality. Rape, torture, and murder have become the LRA's hallmarks in the almost fifteen years that they have terrorized the citizens of Northern Uganda.
The ranks of the LRA are filled in large part by children, who are kidnapped and then brainwashed into service. Human rights NGOs place the number of children currently fighting with LRA at around 3,000. The Lord's Resistance Army, taking another page out of the Islamic playbook, kidnap young girls to serve as sex slaves. Many of these children have even been given as gifts to Muslim arms dealers in the Sudan who not only support the LRA, but who are also part of the Sudanese Islamic government.
Demonstrating their Islamic tendencies, the Lord's Resistance Army murdered an Italian priest. They also killed World Food Program volunteers and the former President of Uganda. After terrorizing mourners at a funeral, they forced them to cook and then eat the body of the deceased. No discernible political program underlies these attacks aside from Kony's desire to cause extreme pain and suffering on all who do not submit. In fact it would not be inappropriate to say that Kony is a carbon copy of Idi Amen, one of the most ruthless and inhuman Muslims who ever lived.
In 2002, the murderous fundamentalist Islamic Sudanese government publicly reversed its longstanding policy of support for the LRA. Despite this declaration, the LRA continued to perpetrate its brutal attacks within Uganda using Sudanese weapons.
