Over the last few months Warren Throckmorton (and I, part time) have been covering the Anti-Homosexual Bill in Uganda. Warren has been the world’s best investigative reporter on this, from interviewing Doug Coe (the head of The Family) to now, breaking news that an American church, Canyon Ridge Christian Church in Las Vegas, NV, has gone on record as being the only church that actually admits they financially support Martin Ssempa – the man in Uganda leading the charge to get this Kill the Gays legislation passed.
Over the past few months, every church that Warren or I have contacted that had previously had financial ties to Ssempa have either cut those ties, or denied they fund him. Well, Canyon Ridge is the first to actually tell us (Warren, in fact, via email) that they do financially support Ssempa and still think it’s a good idea.
This is not right.
