Evangelical Christianity Is Exporting a ‘Gospel of Intolerance’ to Uganda

In case you want to have nightmares tonight, watch Roger Ross Williams‘ brief documentary on how evangelical Christianity is creating a “Gospel of Intolerance” in Uganda:

for all that the church gave me — for all that it represented belonging, love and community — it also shut its doors to me as a gay person.

The American evangelical movement in Africa does valuable work in helping the poor. But as you’ll see in this Op-Doc video, some of their efforts and money feed a dangerous ideology that seeks to demonize L.G.B.T. people and intensifies religious rhetoric until it results in violence. It is important for American congregations to hold their churches accountable for what their money does in Africa.

This is the Good News taken to its logical conclusion.

And we thought it was bad when evangelicals tried to “cure” gays and lesbians.
