God Loves Uganda | 2013
The film explores the role of the American evangelical movement in Uganda, where American missionaries have been credited with creating schools and hospitals, but also with promoting dangerous religious bigotry. Evangelical leaders from the U.S. and Uganda have been joined by these missionaries as well as politicians in the task of eliminating "sexual sin" and converting Ugandans to fundamentalist Christianity. As an American-influenced bill to make homosexuality punishable by death wins widespread support, tension in Uganda mounts and an atmosphere of murderous hatred takes hold. The film reveals the conflicting motives of faith, greed, ecstasy and egotism among Ugandan ministers, American evangelical leaders and the foot soldiers of a theology who see Uganda as ground zero in a battle for billions of souls.
