If you’re like me, you’ve been keeping up with American evangelical organizations’ role in a Ugandan bill that would criminalize LGBT citizens and strip them of their rights. If you haven’t, this is an issue you might want to know something about. Either way, I think you’ll find this short video important and informative:
When Uganda first moved to impose the death penalty on LGBTQ individuals, many of the exact same American evangelical leaders and organizations that had been actively spreading homophobia in Uganda recoiled and tried to distance themselves, insisting that that’s not what they meant. I’m not sure, though, that it makes any sense to preach that “the homosexual agenda” is out to destroy the family and prey on children and then act surprised when people respond by moving to stamp out homosexuality like some sort of scourge.
