Love Free or Die

($24.95 DVD; Wolfe)

Gene Robinson’s appointment as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop was not without its controversy: he wore a bulletproof vest to his 2003 consecration. But his open love for his husband, Mark Andrew, was equally shocking to some of the faithful. Director Macky Alston, who previously explored God and religion in 2002’s Questioning Faith, follows Robinson on his quest for equality and progress within not only Christendom, but the entire world. Winner of a 2012 Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize. Extras include deleted scenes.

    I have no comprehension as to why someone that is gay would want to be religious. Religion has condemned homosexuality for centuries. Just because some dying religions are now willing to get into bed with the gays simply for the profits, it does not mean we should flock to them. Anyone that does so is truly incomprehensible.

    Don’t just concentrate on just the Gay releases, concentrate on awesome releases.

    It just so happens Naked Lunch is both Queer and totally fucking awesome.

    @boring: A homophobic director bastardizing a beloved cult queer novel.

  • Lefty

    @carob: How is Cronenberg homophobic?

  • boring

    @Lefty: I think he mixed up “homophobic” with “Canadian.”

    Which is an honest mistake, really.
