Martin Ssempa has more power than the American I’m thinking of, but read this piece by Ariel Rubin, which describes a press conference pastor Ssempa held to announce his Million Man Kill the Gays March, or whatever he’s calling it. In the piece, Ssempa is described gleefully and pruriently showing the crowd pictures of strange sexual practices that he claims, with no backing evidence, that gays commonly partake in. He shows picture after picture, which he claims he got from “their website,” which is strange, because I wasn’t aware that there was some single monolithic website for gays. But then again, much like the American I’m thinking of, Ssempa is speaking to a crowd which is foolish, uneducated, and easily led.
And in Ssempa’s case, it could have disastrous results.
