In the two short months since its release, Exodus Youth's DVD resource Truth & Tolerance has become one of our top-selling resources. We've recently put together this promotional video clip for YouTube. Check it out!
The publicity blitz surrounding Oscar front-runner Brokeback Mountain
not only challenged stereotypes about gay relationships, it
simultaneously cleared away persistent misunderstandings about the
nation's Christian conservatives.
Instead of reacting with outraged calls for censorship or condemnation,
the much-reviled minions of the so-called religious right have mostly
ignored the movie, allowing it to collect every sort of honor with
shockingly scant controversy.
. . . This doesn't mean that cultural traditionalists in the USA have
abandoned their principles and suddenly embraced the much-discussed
"gay cowboy movie": People who revere biblical strictures against
same-sex relationships can scarcely commend a film that provides a
lyrical celebration of a homosexual affair that wrecks two marriages.
Neverthe less . . . In the heartland of Evangelical America, Brokeback has generated more ho-hums than howls of protest (or hosannas).
