'Gay mafia' attacks Focus on the Family movie
WND.com ^ | April 11, 2014 | Drew Zahn

Posted on 04/13/2014 2:02:17 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

The Christian organization Focus on the Family is releasing a movie in theaters May 6 called “Irreplaceable” about the value of traditional families, the importance of fathers being engaged in their children’s lives and the healing power of forgiveness.

But apparently to some advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, community, that’s a cardinal sin.

LGBT advocates have launched an effort to disparage the movie online, petition against it and work to make sure “Irreplaceable” isn’t seen in your local theater.

Focus President Jim Daly reports in a blog post that some of the more than 700 theaters nationwide scheduled to show the film in a one-night-only event are starting to back out, intimidated by homosexual activists.

“Some of those who disagree with us are calling ‘Irreplaceable’ ‘anti-gay propaganda,’” Daly writes, “and demanding that theaters refuse to show the film.”

Efforts to shut down the movie are being coordinated through Facebook, Twitter and a Change.org petition begun by Shalom Rosenberg, a homosexual middle school teacher from Belmont, Calif.

“Although Focus on the Family has caused so much harm to so many, this is America and they are allowed to be hateful bigots,” Rosenberg states on his petition. “What is not acceptable is the fact that they are trying to pass this film off as a fair-minded or even ‘feel good’ documentary about love, family and marriage. This is not a documentary. This is anti-gay propaganda. Furthermore, it is unacceptable for mainstream theatres to allow this to play at their cineplexes nationwide, as if this were a legitimate film. Fair-minded Americans should not tolerate this kind of deception.”

Great comment below the article- “What the H*LL is a homosexual man doing teaching children in a middle school anyway?”

“Ironically, this theater is currently showing ‘Bad Words’ – an R-rated movie one reviewer called ‘the best pedophile film of 2014,’” Daly continues. “I can only deduce that this Ohio theater owner believes the views presented in the ‘Bad Words’ movie are acceptable – but the millennia-old concept that marriage is the lifelong union of a man and a woman is not. Is this really where we are as a culture?”

Unfortunately, yes.

Liberals and “Progressives” preach diversity and inclusiveness but are really cultural Nazis at heart.

In their minds there is only one approved way to live and that is their way.

To them, the earth isn’t big enough to accomodate people who do not agree with them.

They try to destroy anyone and anything that does not conform to the approved “Progressive” philosopy of life.

Well, can’t say much having not seen the movie.

But, I question what the homosexual community objects to. I doubt that there are homosexual characters in this movie who are the “bad guys”, or that this movie shows homosexuality in a negative way.

If they are complaining that a movie shows the importance of mothers and fathers in the life of a family, and in the lives of their children, and they are pissed off that somehow this story ignores homosexuality, then they can just go have their hissy fit in private.

It doesn’t seem to take much for them to have a hissy fit. I fully expect calls for the criminalization of Father’s Day and Mother’s Day to begin at any moment.

"Unacceptable?" I'm sorry, I must have missed the day when some fairy got to decide what is "acceptable" and not in America.

Fair-minded Americans should not tolerate this kind of deception.”

You want to talk about deception? Let's talk about how deceptive it is to label homosexuality -- as aberrant a behavior as any that ever existed, and one that has been universally rejected in every successful society throughout time -- as "normal." Let's talk about the lies necessary to promulgate homosexual "marriage." Let's describe in detail the sexual acts performed by male homosexuals, and then let's see how many people can keep their lunches down.

Homosexuals are the epitome of intolerance, bigotry, and deception.

Interesting how gay activists use the words equality & freedom while denying critics of both. Bad optics for them.

This is free advertisement for Focus on the Family. They ought to thank these gay activists for providing that!

Guess promoting amnesty for illegals isn’t buying FoF any good will from the thought police.

Tell them to stuff it. I get it. But, you don’t have to tell them to stuff it. Stuffing it is what they live for.

They don’t CARE.

This stuff is driven by raw Nietzchean “will to power.”

Or Satanic drive, but that’s really the same thing. Moral contradiction? Who cares! Just keep dishing forth the quibbles and lies until everyone is confused.

In the end, this will hurt the gay community. With each passing day, the gays will look more and more intolerant. As people examine these intolerant people, they will see that homosexuality involves a very unhealthy lifestyle at all levels. How can anyone promote sodomy?

In watching the trailer, I hear the narrator talk about marriage as a man and a woman. This statement causes homosexuals to meltdown into hissy fits, because it omits the possibility of homosexual marriage.

So based on that, homosexuals have decreed that this is a movie which should be banned.banned

Daly just might like to call Dr. James Dobson, and ask him what he used to do when attacked by the godless.

Focus on the Family was brain child of Dr. Dobson, who was cashiered out after bringing Daly on board and hoping to step back a bit to enjoy the fruits of his (the Lord's) labors.

Now, Daly can figure how the founder and former leader handled political pressures to change his message to be "Inclusive."

Sodomy does not require love, respect, nor responsibility.

The movie’s critics can go pound sand, or ass if they prefer.
