Ah, what a sweet case of cognitive dissonance. What’s a good fundie to do, when an evangelical film company produces a Bible-thumpin’ film about missionaries converting an Ecuadorean tribe to Christianity, but the lead actor is openly gay? On the one hand, you have the president of a Baptist Seminary slyly suggesting that firebombing the production company wouldn’t be a bad idea (gee, how Christian of him!). And on the other hand, you have Focus on the Family coming out with this perfectly reasonable statement (I thought I’d never see the day!):
Do we at Focus feel compelled to check on the sexual history of everyone in a movie? Did they have a D.U.I.? Did they pay their taxes?”
How’s a good Christianist supposed to make sense of all of this?
