SORRY THIS HAS BEEN CANCELED WITH THIS GROUP. The Film: "God Loves Uganda."

OUR GROUPS ARE NOT PROMOTING THIS MOVIE FOR REASONS I WILL EXPLAIN WHEN I HAVE TIME. I will have the exact time for this evening soon. You might want to call the Tivoli for this. If you find out exact time let me know. 

John from Variance Films will have "two" FREE Tickets for us. The person/people who guesses a question about myself will win.

We can go out afterward for drinks and discuss the film.

You’d never guess the subject matter of “God Loves Uganda” from its innocuous-sounding title. Although the documentary begins as an examination of the work of American Christian missionaries in Uganda, it methodically, and in almost roundabout fashion, circles ever closer to its true target, which is the anti-homosexuality bill currently being considered by the Ugandan parliament. The most controversial feature of the law is a proposed death penalty for so-called repeat offenders.

Just as alarming is the connection that the film draws between the brand of conservative Christianity being imported into the country and this legislative attempt to institutionalize barbarism. One Ugandan pastor, Robert Kayanja, compares homosexual activity to murder. Another, the U.S.-eductated Martin Ssempa, is shown delivering a fiery anti-gay sermon in which he presents graphic images of coprophilia, as if that behavior, along with child molestation, were the norm of gay sex

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
