Aren't gay Christians like gay Republicans?
29 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never could understand Log Cabin Republicans. How can you support a party that wants to burn you at the stake? Gay Christians are in the same category. It just doesn't make sense to me. Sure, there are churches where you are accepted, like the Lutheran church in this film, but the vast majority wish you would just go away.

This was a very interesting documentary of a camp for gay Christian teens. There were 10, about six boys and four girls. We got the back story, as well as watching the changes they went through in their camp experience. It was revealing.

The first thing the camp officials had to face was sleeping arrangements. Most camps have the girls in one building and the boys in another. Since this was a camp for GLBT teens, that wouldn't do. They did manage to solve the problem in a creative way.

The rest is just what you would expect at a LGBT Christian camp: Christian music and preaching focusing on the perspective of acceptance, and a lot of bonding among the teens, some who never had a friend before arriving.

If you are not familiar with the pain and struggle teens who are gay go through, then this will open you eyes a bit and give you a new perspective. I certainly hope you take the opportunity to see what is going on all around you.
