Ugandan Pastor Martin Ssempa Holds Gay Porn Screening to Scare Up Support for ‘Kill the Gays’ Bill

This sounds like a stunt Peter 'Porno Pete' LaBarbera would pull.

Martin_ssempa Uganda pastor Martin Ssempa (the one who's planning a "million man march" in support of the "kill the gays" bill) is apparently concerned the government is softening and plans to water it down, so he's pulling out all the stops:

"Pastor Martin Ssempa on Tuesday plumbed the depths of notoriety when he offered graphic images of gay sex as proof of the need for tough penalties against homosexuals.

But midway through his presentation, saved on a computer, most of his audience walked out, some visibly disturbed, leaving him to wonder if he had done anything wrong. The cleric seemed genuinely rattled when he asked: “Why should I be traumatised?” One man, who was part of a group of American students invited to the press conference by Rubaga North MP Beti Kamya, was seen crying, his colleagues consoling him as the group left the National Theatre.

In the immediate aftermath of the presentation, which ended prematurely, Pastor Ssempa said he did not regret his actions. The press conference, the latest in a series of events he is holding in support of the 2009 Anti-Homosexuality Bill, had been called to unveil two Ugandans, a man and a woman, who say their homosexuality has been rehabilitated."
