We Love Everybody, Even the Sick and Deviant. We Just Want Them Dead or Imprisoned for Life.

A Nevada public health organization has finally cut ties with a local
church that partners with Uganda's so-called evangelical pastor Martin Ssempa, the public face of that country's "kill the gays" movement who has shown hard-core gay porn in church and urged that "sodomy and homosexuality never sees the light of
legality in this land of the people of Africa." The 6,000-member Canyon Ridge Community Church in Las Vegas defends Ssempa for working against AIDS, and they insist they have "a heart" for homosexuals.

 "We love everybody, including people
with AIDS." – Pastor Kevin Odor.
