    Funny how Christains seem to look the other way to this crap: - She lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. Ezekiel 23:20 NIV - You will be pledged to be married to a woman, but another will take her and rape her. You will build a house, but you will not live in it. You will plant a vineyard, but you will not even begin to enjoy its fruit. Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will eat none of it. Your donkey will be forcibly taken from you and will not be returned. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and no one will rescue them. . . . The Lord will afflict your knees and legs with painful boils that cannot be cured, spreading from the soles of your feet to the top of your head. Deuteronomy 28:30-31,35 - Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material. Leviticus 19:19 - All that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you. Leviticus 9:10 - Thou shalt not boil a kid in its mother’s milk. Exodus 23:19 - When men fight with one another, and the wife of the one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of him who is beating him, and puts out her hand and seizes him by the private parts, then you shall cut off her hand. Deuteronomy 25:11-12 - Would you like me to go on with some more sick shit in the Christian bible. That's why I laugh at Christians when they put down Muslims. Clearly they haven't read their own bible. Its 2016 when will this religious bullshit end?

    I don't hate the gays, but we need to pray for them to be delivered.

    Fags do and invent anything to believe they can sin with God's approval.  The bible is clear, yes, Jesus loves yiu but he demands repentance of your sins and holyness.  And the question is "do you love Jesus?" If you say yes, do what he says, if not stop mentioning his name and recognized you are obeying Satan.

    ALL of the "christians" who say that God HATES anything is false.

    a church that conducts gay marriages and has gay ministers is no longer a church of god, but of Satan

    Right wing evangelists love to proclaim that they love the Constitution. But their stance on denying homosexuals their equal rights in the pursuit of liberty and happiness is completely unconstitutional. If only the Supreme Court had enough of a spine to do their fucking job, this would have been settled long ago.

    My mom is a skeptic and she is watching this. I am a homosexual 14 year old. I wonder if I should come out to her after she watches it ;P

    This documentary is just amazing. I never knew that 20th century America used to be so anti-gay. I always thought most were ok with homosexuality and didn't see it as much of a big deal and that the only ones who cared very much were pastors and idiotic conservatives. If I were an emotional person, I would have certainly cried throughout this documentary. It's so sad to see what homosexuals had went through, and still go through today and in certain areas around the world, go through this at an extreme level. I personally think it's great that the church doesn't have much influence on modern day society like it did at one point in history and that most young folk don't really give a fuck if homosexuality is a sin or not. The Christian fundies will always be around to try and push their biggoted agendas on everybody but as secularism continues to rise, the fundies will be outcasted from society. I recommend everyone to watch this to know the real truth of LGBT discrimination.

    It is crap like this that tries to drag the real Christian people away from God's word! If you are gay, lesbian, homo, fag whatever you want to call it, YOU ARE EVIL! God is going to put doubts in our mind. He is testing us, if you are a real Christian you know, God is doing this with people we perceive as "Holy" but really these people are Demons the Devil sent. STAY STRONG and know where you stand because God said, he will test us. It is God's way of seeing if we are real Christians or people who are just a friend of the world. Being GAY is being EVIL! THIS IS A TEST!!!

    i don't really think there's is a way of reading bible and coming out with the notion tht homosexuality is acceptable in the context of the church
  • Alex Brandt 2013-09-26 01:16:11
    I watched this documentary when I was at a Catholic University, I believe that it highlights how Jesus's message of love, tolerance, and forgiveness is more powerful than a message of hate and condemnation. Never did I read in the Bible where Jesus turned someone away from God based on their sexuality or sins. God hates no one. I firmly believe that Christianity has the potential to be a bridge instead of a source of division in our society.

    This movie makes Christians feel good about Jesus. Unfortunately, Jesus defended the laws which include killing homosexuals. Jesus scolded the Pharisees and scribes for teaching leniency toward rebellious children by quoting the Old Testament Laws… "For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother,' and ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be PUT TO DEATH.'" (Matthew 15:4) Jesus demanded adherence to the Law - including Leviticus.

    Then you're a childish cherry-picker. The Bible explicitly states to stone all gays, it says what you do is not of nature, it's value, and deserves the punishment of death.

    The music from 0:25 of the trailer... can someone please find out what it is?
