Christian fundamentalists aren't satisfied simply spreading thier hate at home, turns out they are also busy exporting their anti-gay message into other countries with the use of missionaries.
Virulent homophobia is on the rise in Uganda. In 2014, the Ugandan President signed into law the infamous "Anti-Homosexuality Bill," which in its original version went as far as mandating the death penalty just for being gay. After an international outcry, the entire law was struck down. But now, a new version of the bill is in the works. Isobel Yeung travels to Uganda to meet some of the anti-gay leaders teaching intolerance to Uganda's youth, and uncovers disturbing ties between their message and the lessons that American fundamentalists have been pushing for years.

Things change sometimes, trying to paint the United Church today as being hateful and homophobic is sad, very sad.
Uh...I wasn't painting the United church as being hateful and homophobic, in fact, I said the complete opposite.
