'God Loves Uganda' tracks US evangelists' anti-gay fervor to Africa

  

God Loves Uganda 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.  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 God Loves Uganda shows between religious extremists in this country and the virulent homophobia in Uganda is chilling and creepy.  Filmmaker Roger Ross Williams visited KALW studios to play film clips and talk about his journeys to Africa and Missouri to make this documentary with Out in the Bay's Eric Jansen.
