About the film
God Loves Uganda explores the role of the American evangelical movement in Uganda, where American missionaries have been credited with both creating schools and hospitals and promoting dangerous religious bigotry. The film follows evangelical leaders, politicians and missionaries, in America and Uganda, as they attempt the radical task of eliminating “sexual sin” and converting Ugandans to fundamentalist Christianity. It depicts the atmosphere of murderous hatred created by the largely American-influenced ‘Kill the Gays’ bill that would make homosexuality punishable by death.
Through interviews and hidden camera footage, God Loves Uganda reveals the conflicting motives of faith and greed, ecstasy and egotism, among Ugandan ministers, American evangelical leaders and the foot soldiers of a theology that see Uganda as a test case—ground zero in a battle for billions of souls.
Don't miss this powerful documentary featuring an interview with gay activist David Kato shortly before his murder; the moving story of Bishop Christopher Senyonjo, a minister ostracized and literally spat on for being tolerant; and Lou Engle, creator of The Call which convenes tens of thousands of believers to pray against sexual sin.
