An anti-gay protest has broken the calm of Easter Sunday in Uganda.

The producers of the film “Call Me Kuchu” reported earlier today on the protest at the grave site of Ugandan LGBT leader David Kato, who was murdered in 2011:

Right now two anti-gay pastors (including the pastor who denounced David as evil at his funeral) and an Imam are leading a “Say No to Homosexuality” protest at David’s mother’s house, where he is buried. The kuchu community is doing what it can to keep David’s mum safe, the police are reportedly doing nothing. More updates as we get them…

LGBT activist Pepe Julian Onziema reported that Pastor Solomon Male, one of the leaders of the anti-gay protest, displayed a magazine containing gay porn to the crowd, which included children.

Among many critical comments on Facebook, one person stated:

Yet again, the representatives of a supposed god of forgiveness do something utterly unforgiveable. Shame on them.
