"Homosexuality is a Very Difficult Lifestyle"Well, Alan Chambers is at it again. Today he's mad at the mainstream media, and more specifically Brokeback Mountain for not telling people the truth that, "homosexuality is a very difficult lifestyle."
Well, I guess I'm angry at him for NEVER acknowledging that not all gay people live difficult lives. Wouldn't that be the honest thing to say? Really, if we are being completely honest and are interested in complete honesty (and sinlessness--is that a word?) wouldn't it be more honest to say that there at least some gay people that are happy? Or that being gay is not a "difficult lifestyle" for everyone? Or that trying to be straight sometimes makes things worse?
Also, since when did Brokeback Mountain show how easy it is to be gay? All I learned from the movie was that it sure did suck to be gay and live in rural Montana or Texas in the 1960's (ok, I learned more than that, but the movie sure did show how hard it is/was to be gay--probably just not in the way Alan Chambers wanted it portrayed).
And, how many times can Agape Press really put out a press release from Exodus or featuring an Exodus leader about Brokeback Mountain? I mean, really.
Also, doesn't it seem kind of weird that they mention his family life as bio on this article? I'm guessing they are doing that to show how straight he is. If that's the case, should they mention his kids are adopted? Just asking, I know that's kind of mean, but it seems like an odd addition.
Oh- hat tip to Ex-Gay Watch for the link (for some reasons their comments are closed on the post, though)
