Upon arrival in northern Uganda , the two are robbed by soldiers of a local warlord, General Butt Fucking Naked. They are welcomed to the village by Mafala Hatimbi, where a group of villagers share their daily reality of living in appalling conditions while being ruled by the General.
To make their lives seem better, the villagers repeat a phrase that translates as "Fuck you, God! Price and Cunningham are led to their living quarters by Nabulungi, Hatimbi's daughter.

The Book of Mormon Script
While Psalms contains both powerful, poetic words of comfort and doctrinal gems, many psalms also seem to careen between praise, warning, comfort, military braggadocio, and humility, sometimes addressing the Lord, sometimes speaking in the voice of the Lord or his prophets. Psalms was the favorite Old Testament book at Qumran, 1 as it was in the earliest centuries of the Christian Church. The texts that most strongly exhibit these abrupt shifts may yield greater meaning to both readers and serious students of scripture when they are placed within the context of sacred drama, as Jeffrey Bradshaw suggests, and read as scripts — the libretti, if you prefer — of a sacred drama. The shape of sacred drama, in this view, follows a persistent pattern across a wide range of cultures. Included in this pattern may be the idea of the king as the incarnation of the national god. His people are promised victory and prosperity if they will be obedient.
