The American organization that is allegedly responsible for Uganda's anti-gay laws has the foreboding titles: "The Fellowship" and "The Family".
Superficially it purports to spread Christian love (and controls much of evangelical Chritianity), but it is highly secretive, preaches an elite
fundamentalism and is connected to both good and bad world leaders. In short, it is a conspiracist's dream. For a general overview see:
en.wikipedia.org...(Christian_organization). (If a drop down list appears select American Christian organization)
In regards to The Family's trip to Uganda and their influence there, see:
Apparently the Family did eventually state that the Ugandan Bill went too far (or something to that effect), but few people are convinced of the
belated sincerity of such statements.
But then a country that produced Idi Amin and expelled its entire Asian population, while featuring bloodthirsty militias with names like "The
Lord's Resistance Army" probably didn't require too much intervention to find somebody to persecute.
Sadly, ordinary Ugandans will be further stigmatized.
The other collateral damage is US evangelism, which is now even easier to associate with hate groups.
