Anti-Gay Pastor Martin Ssempa Invites Ugandan President To Lead Hate March
Ugandan hate pastor Martin ”Eat Da Poo Poo” Ssempa (pictured) has reportedly invited Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni to a March 24 public demonstration in support of the country’s newly passed anti-gay law.
The law — signed by Museveni in late February — punishes homosexuality with lifelong prison sentences.
Although Ssempa claims that Museveni will be the chief walker in the March 24 demonstration, the Uganda Daily Monitor said that the President’s press secretary Mr. Tamale Mirundi "could not confirm or deny the President’s attendance as the chief walker."
In addition to the public demonstration, Ssempa is also encouraging Ugandans to boycott pro-gay businesses.
Although world figures like US President Barack Obama, Desmond Tutu, British Foreign Secretary William Hague and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim have all denounced the law, Uganda has remained defiant.
However, Ugandan LGBT activists have also published a list of 12 ways you can help the sway national sentiment against the severe anti-gay law.
