Hmmmm. This is one person’s experience at the Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. I can’t say I agree, what do you think?

Adventist Voice

I attended my first gay and lesbian film festival today.  I paid my $10 and sat down in the theater to watch the documentary Seventh-Gay Adventist. 

You may be asking, “How in the world did you end up at a gay and lesbian film festival?”  If you knew me as a kid, teenager, and young adult, you would know that I have always liked girls.  Not only that, I continue to be happily married to my beautiful wife and have no desire to change gender teams.

It just happened that the pro-homosexual documentary was being screened at the Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.  How do I know the film is pro-homosexual?  Well… I attended the screening for myself today and saw the facts with my own two eyes. 

Before we were allowed to enter the theater, the attendees had to stand out in the warm New Mexico sunshine.  I…

  3. This is ridiculous, ignorant commentary. The ex-pastor in #3 was not fired because of his “desire”” to be homosexual – he was fired because of his desire to live honestly and with integrity. We do not “choose” our sexual orientation, any more than we choose to be left- or right- handed (which shares many of the same features. There was a time when left -handed people were treated in the same way, and forced to write with their right hands. Today, we no longer say “It’s OK to be left-handed, just don’t write left-handed”. So why do some people still insist that “It’s OK to be gay, just don’t do gay”?)

    Our sexuality, like every other part of our body and emotional make-up, is a gift from God. The Good Book tells us, “The truth will set you free”, and “Tell the truth in love”. In asking why these people have not simply listened to the spirit, you overlook the simple possibility that perhaps, this is precisely what they have been doing. God does not want us to live a lie. For those of us who know they are made in God’s image – and also gay, when we listen deeply t0 the voice of the Holy Spirit – that is precisely what we hear: living the truth of who are are is more honest than living an ex-gay lie.

    The tragedy of the OP at Advent Voice is that the writer has attended the screening – and clearly missed the whole point of the film, which was produced by a married, heterosexual couple to promote understanding. But there’s none so deaf….
