Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel has apparently never met a violent anti-gay bigot he didn’t support. As Right Wing Watch points out, just the other day Barber tweeted his strong support of Martin Ssempa, the Ugandan minister who pushes that infamous “kill the gays” bill.
Here’s a man not afraid of the international homofascist juggernaut >> @martinssempa

Ssempa is an absolutely deranged anti-gay bigot. In 2011, he claimed he didn’t support the death penalty in the Ugandan “kill the gays” bill, but he urged the parliament to support it anyway. He supported it long before they took the death penalty out of the bill, replaced with long prison terms. And why is that any better? Putting people in prison for being gay is every bit as fascist and disgusting as putting them to death, for crying out loud.
Right Wing Watch says:
According to reports, Ssempa’s speeches included references to “homosexual cults [that] were kidnapping children and raping them and drugging them to brainwash them and turn them gay” and homosexual Satanists who were killing people for their blood.
And this is the guy that Barber is praising and defending.
