Unitarian Universalist to screen documentary on the Ugandan “Kill The Gays” bill
On Friday, October 23 at 7:00 p.m., the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Parish of Monson will be hosting a screening of God Loves Uganda. Through vérité-style camerawork, interviews, and hidden camera footage, the documentary allows American religious leaders and their young missionaries that make up the “front lines in a battle for billions of souls” to explain their positions in their own words. Missionaries from the American evangelical movement have been credited with creating schools and hospitals in Uganda, but they have also blamed for promoting dangerous religious bigotry.
Modest refreshments and a discussion of the issues raised will follow the screening, and will feature members of PFLAG of Greater Worcester, the LGBT Asylum Support Task Force, and some LGBT refugees currently seeking asylum, who will share their stories. The Parish will also be making good use at the event of a new sound system recently donated to them. The film screening is free to all, however a donation of $5 is suggested.
