The link that <strong><a href="http://GodLovesUganda.com">God Loves Uganda</a></strong> shows between religious extremists in this country and the virulent homophobia in Uganda is chilling and creepy.&nbsp; Filmmaker <strong>Roger Ross Williams</strong> visited KALW studios to play film clips and talk about his journeys to Africa and Missouri to make this documentary with <strong><em>Out in the Bay</em>'s Eric Jansen</strong>.
