‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘Capote’ constitute a sinister homosexual “assault” on Christmas, according to the “Traditional Values” Coalition.
Need proof of the assault? TVC’s Andrea Lafferty (who hasn’t seen the film) suggests one look no further than weeks-old quotes by exgay activists Stephen Bennett and Alan Chambers — who also hadn’t seen the film.
On Dec. 8, Chambers appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and blamed liberal acceptance of homosexuality for the “unbridled obsession and painful oppression” and “hopeless desperation” that — according to Chambers — gay people experience. Chambers claimed to speak from experience — but according to his own exgay testimony, Chambers only lived a so-called gay “lifestyle” for eighteen months — as a self-hating teen-ager dwelling in bars from 1990 to 1991, even as he was already undergoing exgay counseling.
In a holiday gesture to real-life men who identify with the movie’s tragic characters, Lafferty extends the following merry Christmas gifts: Spite, banishment from the entertainment media, and partisan politicking.
