Dr. John Kapya Kaoma (STH ’10)

January 25th, 2013 in Alumni/ae News

Dr. John Kapya Kaoma prepared a report called “Globalizing Culture Wars” on behalf  of Public Research Association in Somerville.   Roger Ross Williams has made a film about the issue that was shown at the Sundance Film Festival.

William states about the film,

“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.”

It is indeed important to know what our donations support and we must fight against intolerance and violence in all its forms.  Check out the video!

What follows is a poignant and powerful story of three strangers, each facing a tragic loss, who together find friendship and healing. A novel of hope and redemption by David B.
