Ugandan Activists Want Martin Ssempa Arrested for Promoting Porn

Yesterday I posted about Ugandan pastor and Rick Warren buddy Martin Ssempa's gay porn screening in church, which he had to scare up support for the "kill the gays" bill.

Activists want Ssempa arrested:Martin_ssempa  

"'He (Pastor Martin Ssempa) should be arrested because he is promoting pornography,' said Julian Pepe, the leader of gay and lesbian rights group Sexual Minorities Uganda.

'The fact that he showed this film to people below 18 years means he has committed a crime.'

But Ssempa defended showing the pornographic film to more than 300 people in his church on the outskirts of Kampala. 'If you promote homosexuality, you are bringing a curse,' he said. 'Uganda is in the process of debating legislation against homosexuality but you need to give information to the people so that they know the behaviour that will be regulated.'

He added: 'We are not going to stop there, but will move to parliament to show the same film.'"

Said Nthateng Mhlambiso, from the African gay rights group Behind the Mask: "Showing pornography in church in the presence of minors is twisted homophobic propaganda, where homosexuality is equated to paedophilia and pornography. It is not surprising, but rather disappointing, that in Africa in the 21st Century yet again discrimination and prejudice is legitimised through religion."

    He wants to see it again!

    He better be careful — he might be the first arrest under his new proposed law.

    “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

    “Can Uganda just please go away?”

    Not unless you want the LGBT people of Uganda to “go away” as well.

    Keep in mind that the American preachers who instigated this threatening holocaust in Uganda would do the same thing to LGBT people in the U.S., if they could.

    “You really think Obama buddy Rick Warren would want to do that in the U.S., Elg?”

    Obama wouldn’t give him the ok. Right-wing, facist bigots would…even some Nazi closeted homo ones, I bet.

    Peter Tatchell, one of the most widely respected leaders of the international LGBT movement just this morning passed along a YouTube video that lays out in the clearest way the Ugandan christers intent to murder every GLBT person they can.

    It’s a must see illuminating look at how mass murder begins. It’s part of a global assault that includes the christer right in the US including ex-gay scum and their ringmaster Rick Warren, who used Obama to defeat prop 8 in California. A vicious pogrom is underway in neighboring Kenya and will no doubt bolster the killer christers efforts in Zimbabwe.

    The new Ugandan laws are much more comprehensive and violent than islamist Sharia law.

    Turn off the Olympics and watch this video as if your life depended on it. It just might.

    But if he gets arrested, think about how far everyone will have to go to find good porn in church!

    And in response to Sid, there HAS been a ton of mainstream reporting about this all over the world, as well as Obama speaking out against the bill at a prayer breakfast attended by Bahati, who introduced the bill.
