'God Loves Uganda' tracks US evangelists' anti-gay fervor to Africa http://kalw.org/post/god-loves-uganda-tracks-us-evangelists-anti-gay-fervor-africa <p><a href="http://godlovesuganda.com"><strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;</strong></a></p><p><a href="http://godlovesuganda.com"><strong>God Loves Uganda</strong></a> is a new feature-length documentary about the influence of U.S.-based evangelical Christian missionaries who have been whipping up anti-gay religious fervor in Uganda for many years. &nbsp;Uganda’s parliament is still considering a proposed Anti-Homosexuality Bill that, even though the death penalty has been removed from it, would still be one of the most punitive anti-gay measures in the world. 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>.
