A Ugandan pastor is showing gay pornography at church to try to garner support for a proposed law that would impose the death penalty for some gays.

Martin Ssempa showed the videos to some 100 adults during a church service Wednesday in Uganda’s capital.

He says he plans to show the films regularly to educate churchgoers on gay sex and also plans to show the videos to parliamentarians. He says some churchgoers cried after watching the videos, which he said he downloaded from the Internet.

Ugandan gay rights activist Julian Peppe condemned Ssempa’s decision to show pornography in church, saying he should be arrested and needs mental rehabilitation.

The proposed bill has sparked protests in London, New York and Washington.

I have been accused of having a sometimes sick sense of humor, but I just think this is beautiful.  Ssempa is one of the biggest campaigners here for the proposed law that would provide the death penalty for “serial homosexuals.”  He thinks that showing these videos in church will awaken people to the horrors of what is in store for Uganda if gay people are allowed to live.

But what if it doesn’t work that way?  What if the people who watch these videos become…well…turned on?  What if showing these videos ignites some latent homosexual tendencies in people who have never had the opportunity to explore that side of themselves?  Studies have shown that about 1 in 7 people are homosexual to one extent or another.  That means that, statistically, in Ssempa’s crowd of 100, about 14 people might enjoy those videos even more than the rest.  I would say that most homosexuals in Uganda are deeply closeted, for obvious reasons, but what if watching these videos makes them curious about exploring their homosexuality?

I have a feeling that Ssempa’s efforts will backfire.  In the meantime, if you’ll excuse me, I have to leave for church.

    Brilliant – I love it! Maybe he was preaching to the ‘converted’ yet didn’t realise he’d converted them yet…
