Canyon Ridge Christian Church, in Las Vegas, will be a host site for June 27’s National HIV Testing Day, where the public is encouraged to get their HIV tests en masse. Canyon Ridge is also a “mission partner” of Uganda’s Pastor Martin Ssempa, he of “Eat Da Poo Poo” fame, who’s lobbying in favor of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, which requires anyone charged with charged with “aggravated homosexuality” to get tested for HIV; if positive, the person faces additional charges. So, that’s one way Canyon Ridge can accomplish its goal of getting more people tested for HIV, yes? [Warren Throckmorton]
