A certain portion of the entertainment community is bent on being bent. Hollywood has taken upon itself the mission of changing society’s attitude toward homosexuality and lesbianism (“In and Out,” “Bound,” “First Wives Club,” “The Celluloid Closet,” “Boys On The Side,” “Beautiful Thing,” “Chasing Amy,” “Love! Valor! Compassion!” just to name a few). Film after film encourages us to believe that it is an alternative and accepted lifestyle. There’s just one little problem with this belief – God says it is immoral (Romans 1:26,27). As Christians we do not want to seem hostile to people struggling with this behavior. While God says homosexuality is an abomination (1 Corinthians 6:9), upon reexamination of that verse, it becomes apparent that inappropriate sexuality is not all that’s abhorrent to the Heavenly Father. In fact, we are all blameworthy of some infraction. So, we’d better be careful about admonishing others for the speck in their eyes. However, those developing a spiritual awareness soon find themselves ashamed of the natural man’s disobedience to God. We don’t parade our peccadilloes. We are not proud of our transgressions, nor do we try to convince society to accept them. With God’s help we will conquer these faults. With His mercy, we will be forgiven them.
I believe many in Hollywood have embraced the rights of homosexuals, not so much out of a righteous desire for equality, but as an effort to further separate nations from the teachings of God’s Word. As for the film itself, satire is difficult to pull off. Here, the filmmaker gets a case of the cutes, leaving his actors looking like cartoon characters. Nothing is seriously addressed other than the underlying hostility toward Christianity. Perhaps the producers would have given viewers a more powerful film had they seriously examined the subject of sexual orientation and whether it could be changed. I found it nothing more than a bawdy comedy, aiming to satisfy prurient desires.
