Why would Lou Engle go to Uganda?

[Originally posted at Bene Diction Blogs On, Mar. 18, 2010]

Lou Engle, the dominionist evangelist who I briefly discussed when he was at The Cry Vancouver last year, is reportedly planning to stage one of his The Cry events in Uganda later this year.

It will be interesting to see whether he follows through on his plans, and whether he will be asked some frank questions about what he hopes to do, as the recent moves of some Christians there to pass legislation targeted to restrict if not outlaw homosexuality, are proving controversial. Rightly so.

I would ask Engle myself whether he endorses the legislation and hopes to help those behind it. Hopefully a reporter there will be on the ball and ask him about it.
