Post film Q&A with human rights law experts
Professor Stephen Rosenbaum, University of Washington Law School,
and Florence Owinji Akello, Barer Fellow from Uganda.
Sponsored by the student committee of the Western Regional International Health Conference.
Largely funded and egged on by US-based groups, the Ugandan politicians and evangelical leaders fighting for these draconian new laws are winning over the public, and an increasing number of LGBTI community members and moderate religious groups are concerned the extremists are going to get their way. With stunning access, the film allows these leaders, as well as the young American missionaries that largely make up the “front line” of the fight, to explain their positions in their own words. Shocking and enlightening, God Loves Uganda will leave you questioning just how closely this new brand of evangelical Christianity resembles the Christianity you know.
