Join us for a special screening of the documentary God Loves Uganda, hosted by the Greater Seattle Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

God Loves Uganda is a powerful exploration of the evangelical campaign to change African culture with values imported from America’s Christian Right. In this 90-minute film, producer-director Ross Williams makes the argument that Christian evangelicals—including members of the United States Congress—are using Uganda as a proxy for waging the culture war against “sexual immorality” that they are losing in America. American ministers who are anti-abortion, anti-feminist and anti-homosexuality have been flooding the country with money and missionaries spreading the fundamentalist message. Ugandan legislators have passed draconian laws against homosexual behavior—including death for some “offenses”— and a number of Ugandan preachers have achieved fame and fortune by attacking Uganda’s homosexual community. You’ll see and hear from those who preach hate as well as those who fight back. You won’t want to miss this powerful film and the discussion afterward.
