anyone seen this?
I found about halfway through I had to watch The Horrors, Beliefs and homophobia (it's the same thing - I think they just renamed it so it doesn't get taken down)
WOW...I was brought to tears a couple times wathching this.
I'll post a link to part 1
has anyone who has seen it changed thier opinion about homosexuality?
and what do you think about the fact that because churches preach that being gay is an abomination- that it causes so many suicides?

People commit suicide because they cannot stand to live with themselves.
Gays commit suicide because they aren't accepted and loved for who they are. And because they are shunned and ridiculed by those that should love them most simply because of religion. That's part of what the movie is about and one reason why it's important for anyone dealing with homosexuality to watch it. It shows many different perspectives for many different situations and the outcomes, both good and tragic.

Laura2u me too ... actually I hear more about grace, love , mercy and who I am in Christ... then the sins of the world! God wants to change the focus from complaining about sin and how awful it is to uplifting His children and telling them how loved they are and who they are in Christ. I live not far from San Francisco and many in my church live near or in that city itself. They have ministered love to all walks of life there and we have had homosexuals freed up because of how they were ministered to.. there is no condemning... just loving them right where they are at. God does the rest every time! we have podcasts from our church if anyone is interested in listening.

This is heresy.
What's heresy? The subject is about a movie regarding homosexuality and religion and how it affects real people. Maybe before you go on the offensive, you should understand the topic at hand?
