Martin Ssempa, Anti-Gay Ugandan Pastor, Shows Church Gay Porn Videos

Posted: Updated:

Martin Ssempa, a Ugandan pastor, has shown hardcore pornography to a crowd gathered in a Kampala church in an effort to stir anti-homosexual sentiment, AFP reports.

"The major argument homosexuals have is that what people do in the privacy of their bedrooms is nobody's business but do you know what they do in their bedrooms?," he told the crowd of 300, which included children.

Ssempa's actions came after Ugandan lawmakers tabled a bill that would enforce various punishments, including death penalties, for homosexual practices.

While popular in Uganda, the bill provoked international outrage, with President Barack Obama calling it "odious"

While showing graphic pornographic pictures to the crowd, Ssempa described the images. "This one is eating another man's anus," he said of one, before going into more graphic descriptions.

"Is this what Obama wants to bring to Africa?" he asked the crowd.

Nthateng Mhlambiso, a representative of the African gay rights group Behind the Mask, criticized the pastor's tactics.

"Showing pornography in church in the presence of minors is twisted homophobic propaganda, where homosexuality is equated to pedophilia and pornography," he told the BBC.

However Ssempa has remained unrepentant, claiming he will take the pornography to the parliament.
