"They eat the poo poo!!"

Avid Christian missionaries travel from the American Midwest to harvest souls in Uganda, and their first order of business is the eradication of homosexuality. And they are not without success – their activities have contributed to the wave of hatred culminating in the proposal of a death penalty for homosexuals. GOD LOVES UGANDA features interviews with key players coupled with footage from hate-fuelled sermons, rendering no doubt that spreading the Word will come at great cost.
