This documentary ended up being what I thought it would be: very poor film work, very poor writing/directing, out-and-out propaganda. I was hoping for a more challenging piece of work.

This documentary explores how conservative Christians' interpretation of the Bible can be used as a way to deny homosexuals equal rights. This is a very important film, especially in light of the recent events in Kentucky.

It breaks my heart to see individuals be pressured by organizational religion to hide their real selves. I saw one of my closest friends be victim to this for years and I am so proud of him for finally gathering the courage to stand up to the oppressors surrounding him.
