The American evangelical movement in Africa does valuable work in helping the poor. But as you’ll see in this Op-Doc video, some of their efforts and money feed a dangerous ideology that seeks to demonize L.G.B.T. people and intensifies religious rhetoric until it results in violence. It is important for American congregations to hold their churches accountable for what their money does in Africa.

So disgusting. It makes me so despise the religions of Abraham.

That last scene at the end of the video showing that man whisper what we all know are such hateful and manipulating words to that poor child affected me the most.

As another said, "interesting". I am not sure how much I buy into to this but, if true, I am not happy about it.

Let me see how this works. First I invade your country rob you of your natural resources, put in a puppet leader that puts your country further into debt which basically starves your people and then I sent in food and medicine under the condition that you convert to my religion and believe what I believe in since that BS won't fly in my own country.

I guess that sums it all up.
