There's a new documentary about US churches and missionaries working in Africa to build a "Christian army" to take over the world (their words, not mine). Some of them are fully discredited in the US, and moved to Uganda to spread their hate because nobody here takes them seriously. Others are leaders of Dominionist movements and other Evangelical sects (the groups that support guys like Perry and Santorum in politics) that lie and say they don't support extreme hate, but have now been caught on film supporting it in other countries.
Does exporting it make it somehow less wrong? These same groups supporting the "Kill the Gays" bill in Uganda are the ones who supported Prop 8 in California. This is not the WBC, but they make statements as outrageous (sometimes even more outrageous), yet are embraced by politicians and mainstream Evangelicals. Are people turning a blind eye because it's not in their backyard?Answer Question

Yes. It's easier to ignore when it's "over there", and when the population affected isn't white. Sad, but true. We have a history of stepping in when there's abuse against caucasion populations, and somewhat darker skin tones, but when it comes to the darkest skin tones, we turn a blind eye. It's disgusting and I hate it. If they were promoting killing white nuns, America would be outraged. But since we're talking about gays in predominantly black nations, eh, no big deal. It's their problem, not ours. We are a nation of hypocrites.
