Customer Reviews

I saw this movie and it made me grow and it goes to shows how ignorant really people are.
D C
There is a support group and friends and leaving that and walking into an empty world where there is no connection to anyone is very terrifying.
Aryael de Kaprii
This was very revealing just how corrupt the Mormon church is and how far they will go to try to stop young people from being gay.

I saw this film at a screening in Park City during the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2010. Admittedly, I am LDS and I identify as a gay man. Obviously, this is a movie that I wanted to see because I had these two elements of my life fighting with each other, both in private (in my own mind) and in public (LDS Church vs. the anti-Proposition 8 movement). First of all, the movie definitely has an agenda. However, the title does not lie; sometimes the truth hurts. Being involved in both of these communities fairly actively, I can tell you that this movie brings the truth about Proposition 8 to light. Where the film crosses the line is in its sometimes sensationalistic portrayal, in how the facts are presented to the audience. The truth is presented, but not in the best way or method. Reed Cowan (director) did try to interview LDS Church officials and spokespeople, but his requests were either denied or ignored. Can people really blame him for this? Criticisms of his film being "too biased" are without knowledge of this fact. A lot has to be said for the documents from the 1990's proving that the anti-gay marriage group in Hawaii was created, staffed, and funded through Mormon means. It may all have been done legally, but that doesn't mean that it was right or moral. A lot of criticism of the film points to the "picking-and-choosing" of which phrases from these documents were highlighted on screen and pointed out to the viewer. This is easily remedied: to see the documents, simply go to "MormonGate dot com" and read them. The documents speak for themselves.

I was a member of the LDS Church until May 2003 after I went infront of my congregation at Northridge 3rd Ward and announced during fast and testimony that I was Gay. I can honestly say that it was a moment of insanity because of what could have happened. I have always been a strong minded person, confident and sure of myself. The mormon's way of brainwashing and threatening really didnt and could not have worked on me. Honestly the Bishop and First Council were pretty cool about it. They took me into the office and sat me down and told me that they know and understand my struggles and that one in every 10 men is gay. They told me that if I wanted the Churche's help, that I could remain a member as long as I vowed celibacy and attended regular meetings with a mormon psychiatrist. I declined. There is nothing wrong with me, I just dont find women attractive and I never have. As a member of the Church I lied about my attractions simply because I wanted to fit in. What most people dont know about being Mormon, is that within the Church is a world in and of itself. There is a support group and friends and leaving that and walking into an empty world where there is no connection to anyone is very terrifying. The only reason i survived is because my life was not exclusively Mormon. I had secular friends and my family consisted of non-believers, baptists, and born again non-denominational christians. My leaving the Church was met with applause. Unfortunately there are alot of young men and women who leave the church and walk into a big world where they dont know anyone and they dont have any support. This documentary really hit home for me. Never has anything made me so sick in my life.Read more ›

Utah has the highest teen suicide rate. But why? Isn't it forbidden by the bible? Well, no; Samson's suicide is generally held up as a laudable event. The bible even clearly states that god granted him superhuman strength during his final moments. Therefore, god approves of suicide (at least if you take out several thousand of his enemies simultaneously). By extension, the bible gives Christians no reasons to oppose suicide bombing.

The tragedy behind Utah's youth suicide rate is quite simple once you learn that the majority of the state is Mormon. It is also profoundly and undeniably tragic. Under Mormon teachings, being gay is second only to murder under their collection of "sins." The threat of hell is certainly no match for the oppression, "reparative" therapies and condemnation from pulpits and parents alike. And yet the Mormon hierarchies aren't satisfied with tormenting those who were unfortunate enough to live in their state. They funded and supplied countless volunteers to pass Proposition 8 back in 2008. Needless to say, the pool of Mormon sheep blackmailed with excommunication amounted to tens of thousands of flyer-distributors, yellers and election-day "advisors." As anyone well-versed in political science is well aware, dedicated (or in this case, at least partially-coerced) volunteers can run circles around a smaller but more well-funded opposition.

Families sacrificed their childrens' college funds, retirement funds, and whatever else was demanded of them by comfortable, affluent and above all lazy clergy. And for what? For holding back social justice, compassion and understanding for a few years until the Judge Walker of California's district court declared it unconstitutional.

Extremely bigoted and hate misrepresentation of a church's beliefs
I'm not sure how this qualifies as bigotry. it is critical of the LDS Church and its leadership. I've never thought that criticizing an organization makes someone a bigot. By that logic, the makers of "Walmart, The High Price of Low Cost" and "Who Killed the Electric Car" were... Read More
