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.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
