"God Loves Uganda approaches this intersection of faith and politics with some fairness and a good deal of outrage." - New York Times

"God Loves Uganda charts the rise in persecution and intolerance in the African nation as America's Christian right takes its anti-gay fight to new territory." - Toronto Star

"One effective sequence after another... carries the alarming sensation of ideological chaos without resorting to technical trickery." - The Dissolve

A powerful exploration of the evangelical campaign to infuse African culture with values imported from America’s Christian Right. The film follows American and Ugandan religious leaders fighting sexual immorality and missionaries trying to convince Ugandans to follow biblical law.
