Why Uganda’s Pastor Martin Ssempa Is Ruining Things For Nevada’s AIDS Patients

After evaluating Canyon Ridge Christian Church’s backing of Pastor Ssempa of Uganda and his support of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, we feel that it is in the best interest of our clients, supporters and staff to dissolve our relationship with the church immediately. Unfortunately, we will be unable to continue to work with the church, as long as they are associated with Pastor Ssempa. Since what he and the Anti-Homosexuality Bill represent violates the basic human rights that should be afforded to all Ugandans. Our mission is to provide client service programs that assist in enhancing the physical health and psychosocial wellness of the individuals living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in southern Nevada, while promoting dignity and improving the quality of their lives. We will further this mission without the support of Canyon Ridge Christian Church.

    I would like to make him “Eat Da Poo Poo” preferably from an Ebola infected ape! I I would use a cake decorator to do it!

    Martin Ssempa is a Human Rights Terrorist and a stain on my adopted state of Nevada. The sad part is that the people who attend this church are a nice group of people who Ssempa has somehow bamboozled into thinking that the world (including the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights) is lying about him.

    We will keep up the pressure on Canyon Ridge until they too see him for what he is and stop funding his terror in Uganda.
