eWith a hat tip to Kitt at Jesus in love who drew my attention to it, I just have to tell you about yet another new documentary movie on faith and orientation. In this version, a lesbian couple, heartily sick of the rejection they encountered on homophobic grounds, wondered what would happen if they “changed the package?”
Accordingly, they remade themselves to resemble a straight couple right out of the born -again text book, with a twist. The newly -minted “husband” presented as a minister, complete with dog-collar. They successfully passed the test, were accepted, and infiltrated the church which had rejected them, complete with hidden cameras. If I have correctly understood the advance publicity, the truth of this particular congregation, they found, was not about the Gospels, not just about bigotry – but about financial greed and political influence.
From the movie’s own website:
The now completed documentary, Faith of the Abomination, clearly illuminates how the Pastor and his cronies, under “God’s authority”, use divisive social issues such as homosexuality and gay marriage, to rally their people into giving money to fight these “unrighteous agendas”. The same hateful rhetoric is also used to scare parents into sending their kids to the churches’ Institutions of Indoctrination, and to form powerful coalitions with politicians and other leaders who are just as greedy and corrupt.
Meanwhile, thousands of families are torn apart, hundreds of thousands of people leaving their faiths, and many more left hopeless to the point of taking their own lives… as these “high priests” stockpile the offerings, on top of our tax subsidies, to build their own massive, multi-million dollar empires.
I have just spent some fun time exploring the youtube trailer, sneak peak, and other snippets. Do the same, starting at the official website
