The Anglican priest who got inside the anti-LGBT campaign in Uganda

The Anglican priest who got inside the anti-LGBT campaign in Uganda

Here’s an excellent videotaped interview with the Rev. Kapya Kaoma, a Zambian Anglican priest based in Boston. The footage is culled from the film God Loves Uganda, which explores the role of American theological conservatives in stoking anti-gay sentiment in Uganda.

Kaoma examined the role of Anglican conservatives in the United States in the struggle over lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues in Africa in a report titled “Globalizing the Culture Wars: U. S. Conservatives, African Churches and Homophobia” for Public Research Associates. (Full disclosure, I was on the advisory committee for this project.)

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
