Join us for our next movie night on July 27th! “God Loves Uganda” is a documentary film produced and directed by Roger Ross Williams, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Williams was inspired to make the film when he met David Kato, an LBGT activist who was killed in 2011, ostensibly in a robbery. Kato told there was an untold story of the damage American fundamentalist evangelicals are doing in Uganda; of the insidious nature of their aggressive effort to harvest young, unclaimed souls to preach a gospel of love intertwined with a gospel of intolerance. “God Loves Uganda” explores connections between evangelical and fundamentalist theology in North America and in Uganda, suggesting that the North American influence is the reason behind the controversial Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill, which at one point raised the possibility of the death penalty for gays and lesbians.
