Martin Ssempa Has A Blog

Jim Burroway

The Ugandan pastor and kill-the-gays advocate is not only blogging, but he’s also Facebooking and commenting on BTB.

I wish I could put as much energy into being gay as he is to broadcast that he’s not.

So Guy de Maupassant’s “Piece of String”. Tell us again, Ssempa, how much do you dislike gay people? Use more photos if you have to. Demonstration. Whatever it takes.

How long will it be until he starts posting his collection of gay pornographic pictures on it?

He’s also commenting on TWO.

Called me a racist! That was cute.

Are you sure this guy purporting to be Ssempa on BTB / TWO comments threads actually is the man himself? His comments are like those of a child.

I wonder if he is on the Do Not Fly list. I would think as an advocate of genocide, he wouldn’t be allowed to board a flight into the US.

@AdrianT-His comment here at BTB was just a slight re-write (typos and all) of a post on his blog, which suggests that it’s “Dr.” Ssempa himself.

BTW, does anyone know when (or why) Ssempa started calling himself “Dr.” and using “PhD” after his name? There’s no mention of any advanced degree beyond a masters on his own website, so where did this supposed degree come from?

Ssempa was awarded an honorary Ph.D. from a Christian college a few years ago, which in his version of reality equates to becoming a doctor.

I guess this is perfect timing for my just starting Martha Nussbaum’s book, “From Disgust to Humanity : Sexual Orientation and Constitutional Law”. So far it’s quite interesting and I’d say that Ssempa would benefit from reading it. Of course, I doubt Ssempa gives a crap about civil rights, let alone how he lies and dehumanizes others in the name of God, so perhaps not.

“His comments are like those of a child.”

That’s exactly how I know it’s Ssempa. Actually, not just the childishness… throw in a bunch of lies, hate and intolerance, hysteria, dumb reasoning, fundamentalism… that’s Ssempa.

Mrs. Ssempa should take custody of their children and fly to safety. Her husband is a dangerous man and is about to have a big fall. He may be tempted to bring his family with him, e.g. Waco, Texas and Jonestown.

In Ssempa’s case, PhD = Phony Doctor.

Some of the nastiest ranting I’ve read in a long while.

Wow, Ssempa is obsessed.

Dr. Robin Guthrie

This man is clearly obsessed with homosexuality, and his misunderstanding of the Christian new testament

Holding such a position of power and espousing such tripe, resulting in an Honorary Doctorate from a Christian church, only magnifies my hatred for such people.

If hangings are to occur, the rope should be round his neck for such misinterpretation of the bible.

I’ve just been reading Ssempa’s blogs.

One word: claptrap.

March 2nd, 2010 | LINK

Ssempa and bahati our Heroes and heroes forever. You thought it was only you who had the blogs. Ssempa has done us good.

Reading thru the comments on the blog here is a clear sign of people whose minds have been depraved. How can you counsel Ssempa’s wife to run away. Stop being anti family. I think your mom had a better thought of you than what you are actually. Ssempa has never stopped being valiant for right causes and remember Ssempa has never lost a war because his father has never lost a war.

Does your blog sure compare to that one of Ssempa?


March 2nd, 2010 | LINK

“Does your blog sure compare to that one of Ssempa?”

Not really. This blog (BTB) is run by thoughtful and kind people who welcome open and respectful discussion on a wide variety of issues. Ssempa’s blog is (so far) a series of monomaniacal tirades filled with lies which demonize innocent Ugandans in a hateful and un-Christian manner. Not really the same at all, are they?

I sent a FB note to the Ssempa FB page yesterday, asking him to re-read Matthew 22:36-39 – the chapter on ‘the greatest commandments’ asked of Jesus and asking Ssempa to consider whether his actions would be in line with Jesus’ intent to command us to live primarily by love, for God, self and our ‘neighbours’.
Ssempa’s reply was simply “I’m not interested in monologues” – I suspect it was an ‘auto reply’ – anyone else get something similar?

Yes, Martha Nussbaum’s book is a great read.
