I’m meeting the famous Ugandan Pastor, Martin Ssempa, who was in a YouTube video that went viral a couple of years ago.
I’m interviewing him for my photo-documentary project about Uganda’s anti-gay bill but I somehow need to argue that homosexuality actually isn’t all that he says it is. Apparently finding some very disturbing gay porn and accusing homosexual’s of being disgusting and wrong is more important than helping a very poverty stricken country.
I obviously don’t want to offend his religion, and I’m interested to hear his argument, but I need to find a way of contradicting what the Bible says about homosexuality sensitively and prove to him that homosexuals aren’t influenced by the Western world. Scientists and Psychologists have proved that homosexuality isn’t nurtured and the majority or children brought up by two gay parents turn out heterosexual and there is much more evidence of homosexuality from hundreds of years ago, but is this enough to change his mind?
