The side of the angels

Whenever Michael Moore is against something, it is a good sign that you should be for it. "Bowling for Columbine" is inadvertently a great apologetic for the Second Amendment. "Sicko" shows that socialized medicine/Hillarycare is an extremely bad idea.

Guess what Moore is setting his sights on next? Homophobia. As Dark Horizons reports,

He's done corporate downsizing, guns, Bush and health care, now Michael Moore has targeted the subject of his next doco (propaganda polemic) - homophobia. Moore has revealed that the anti-gay Christian right movement might be the topic of his next documentary. According to SlashFilm, he told magazine The Advocate that "I think it's a very ripe subject for someone like me to make a movie about. Simply because we are not there yet and it remains one of the last open wounds on our soul that we are not willing to fix yet."He goes on to say "There is nowhere in the four Gospels where Jesus uses the word homosexual. The right wing has appropriated this guy ... and they have used him to attack gays and lesbians, when he never said a single word against people who are homosexual. Anyone who professes to be a Christian and does that is certainly not following the teachings of Jesus Christ."

Where to begin. First, opposition to homosexual behavior is not a phobia. Second, Jesus didn't speak about homosexual behavior because He didn't have to. In First Century Jewish society, everyone knew homosexual behavior was an abomination roundly condemned by the law of God. It was only when the Gospel was preached to societies that accepted homosexuality to a degree that the Church had to speak explicitly on this teaching. Third, Moore is an idiot who deliberately distorts the truth to support his agenda. Glad he is on the other side.
