Leader of Uganda’s Anti-Gay Bill Finally Loses American $ Support

BREAKING NEWS exclusive to my friend Dr. Warren Throckmorton’s blog, Canyon Ridge Christian Church in Las Vegas, who gave the bulk of financial support (here and here) to Martin Ssempa – the leader of the Anti-Gay Bill in Uganda, has finally cut financial ties with him! This is a huge blow to the sustainability of the legislation. To see Canyon Ridge’s full statement, view here.

Seriously, we all owe Warren Throckmorton so much. He never gave up on being a true and responsible investigative journalist on this; and Canyon Ridge cutting ties with Ssempa is the biggest news to date. As I have just called them, you can thank Canyon Ridge for making the right decision here.

Thanks Warren.

Much love.

    thanks for this remarkable news. i had to sit with tears in my eyes for a few minutes and be amazed at how beautiful it is when another brother (such as warren) makes the courageous decision to follow Jesus….especially when it is most difficult.

    and you, brotherboy…….i continue to appreciate all you do. you have no idea.
