Movie: Prayers for Bobby

Mentioned in the forum:

“Prayers for Bobby”, a true story about a gay teen that was brought up in a holy roller family. The boy would try to open up to his mother, only to have her scream leviticus quotes and such at him.

The forum thread discussing the movie: Absolutely “must see” movie!

    Its a shame. Homosexuals suffer like other addicts. I know of a former homosexual in my area who runs a program to help homosexuals overcome their addiction. He has been veru sucessful and has been reformed himself for over 20 years.

    screaming them down is not the answer.

    @ Xenon. Your reply is even more horrible: sexuality as an addiction and curable? You must be out of your mind!

    Screaming them down is awful and unjust but honest. Your solution is hurtful and shaming.

    Well said, Anna. Homosexuality is perfectly normal and is genetically based. It is not an addiction, a disease or an ‘abomination’. It is not a ‘choice’ that is an option. People need to understand that their ignorance will not be tolerated in a modern society. Religion just gives bigots and ignorant people a justfication for their hatred.

    Anna you are the people who belittle the homosexuals who want help and do want that lifestyle. Leave them alone and allow them to pursue the lifestyle they desire.

    Homosexuality is not natural and it is not the norm. Parroting what the homosexual groups attempt to push does not make it true. It it were, then there wouldn’t be all these reformed homosexuals amongst us. I’m not a PC individual, I prefer the truth.

    And don’t make this a religious issue, it has nothing to do with helping someone no more than AA is religious. Your paranoia is ridiculous.

    Xenon, homosexuals are unnatural because they don’t produce children and therefore don’t contribute to society. That is your position, right? What about old people, barren women and sterile men, people who decide to just not have children, divorcees (upsets the family structure). They can’t be worth anything, can they?

    And this really is a religious issue, as it’s religious people who say homosexuals aren’t good enough.

    “therefore don’t contribute to society”

    What?

    “They can’t be worth anything, can they?”

    Huh?

    “religious people who say homosexuals aren’t good enough.”

    For what? The NFL? The NY Philharmomic?

    Anyone who wants to be homosexual, go for it is none of my business. It is the knee-jerks like Matt that do not want to help the homosexuals who want out. Right, Matt? Maybe you are more concerned about numbers than the individual huh Matt?

    Xenon, I’m not sure I understand your position on homosexuality. You seem to oppose it but at the same time you say you do not. This is somewhat confusing. Could you clarify your stance on homosexuality for me?
