Phyllis Schlafly Would Be Proud

This weekend is the premiere of "Prayers for Bobby," a new film based on the true story of a religious 1970s suburban housewife and mother (played by Sigourney Weaver) who drives her son to suicide when she rejects him for being gay. Just watching the trailer made me angry (I don't suffer fools kindly), but Weaver is a gifted actress so I think I might give it a look. (Saturday, Jan. 24th at 9pm/8c on Lifetime.)

I won't be watching the movie, but this is something all people need to think about. How do you reject someone's actions and still [truly] love them? For many people adultery or fornication is next to murder in seriousness and society does not exactly accept murderers' actions either.

I hope the movie is intelligent and explores the subject well.
