Martin Ssempa, preacher and proponent of Uganda's kill the gays bill, is now blogging:

Ha ha ha..the homos are scared to death that we have hard evidence of WHAT they do. They are mortally ashamed of the public knowing the totally deviant sexual activities which include the most unnatural, unhealthy and disease prone sexual activities..fisting, anal licking, scat (fecal) games, brown and yellow showers, etc all these are the acts they want to keep secrets...So they now plant stories to bemoan that I am showing "gay porn" to "little children". That now my members in church are wanting to try out being homos! ha ha ha...

Ssempa's response to criticism from gay bloggers further exposes his warped perspective. Andrew posted pictures of Ssempa's gay porn presentation last Friday. A few readers thought that the pictures looked photoshopped, so I e-mailed Warren Throckmorton to see if he would forward me the the rest of the pictures from the series. A few of the photographs may look photoshopped because of how Ssempa holds the computer, but after examining them I believe that they are legitimate. The pictures are in line with news reports and Ssempa even uses one of the pictures at the start of his hateful, bigoted post, which is excerpted above. I'm posting all the pictures from his presentation below the jump to demonstrate how gays are being demonized in Uganda. Any of these fetishes could be, and are, practiced by heterosexual couples, but Ssempa uses these images to paint gays as sexual deviants. The worst homophobes are always fixated on gay intercourse rather than the reality of gay and lesbian relationships.  All five photographs (NSFW):
