If you’re doing nothing else on this day off, consider watching God Loves Uganda on Netflix or iTunes:


Slate‘s J. Bryan Lowderoffers this synopsis:

… Add that to the strategy of tying aid and charity work to values exportation in order to ensure a captive audience, and it’s easy to see why many Ugandans so readily accept the evangelical message.
Well, that and the fact that [Scott] Lively and his ilk have done a great job convincing Ugandan parents that homosexuals are out to get their children. This “recruiting” notion is as old as time and should have been discredited by now, but it seems to work particularly well in a culture that has not had much experience with sexual minorities.

The film offers a perfect example of how much harm “Christian Love” under the guise of homophobia can cause.
