'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.
