When we left Austin over a year ago, our ultimate dream / goal was to one day return home to release our documentary film. The Texas Premiere of Faith of the Abomination was a tremendous success at the 23rd Annual Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival! The Sunday afternoon screening of our documentary played to a sold-out house! AGLIFF: thank you warmly for making our dream an awesome reality.
PROJECT UPDATE: Finally, after four years and numerous attempts at getting a response from Pastors Lee and Sue Boss of Victory Christian Center Austin, the Press we received in Austin motivated Pastor Boss to speak with Joshunda Sanders of the Austin American-Statesman, but only after the article was published.
Here's his response (in purple) - "I really don't have much to say, because how do you respond to a bunch of untruths." Untruths? It's all caught on tape for the audience to see for themselves. "They did not let us know that they were a homosexual couple, if they had let us know that, we would have treated them the same." Really? Pastor Boss, you now have an opportunity to put your money where your mouth is. We will gladly make ourselves available to minister to your congregation as you had CL and Cammy minister to Victory Christian Center; all we need is an invitation. Shall we?
"I don't know what their beef is with us or anyone else. We did not share anything with them that we wouldn't share with our board of directors." The documentary film speaks for itself. Our beef isn't with the pastors, Victory Christian Center Austin, or anyone else. Our beef is against the wrong teachings coming from the leadership of the Evangelical Organization.
If you are in or near the Bryan / College Station, TX, area, the Unitarian Universalist Chuch is hosting a special screening of Faith of the Abomination.
Showtime is Friday, September 17th at 7:30 PM with post-film Q&A. Please see flyer for additional information.
Also, be sure to check back soon for updates and photos from aGLIFF23.
"The build to the climax was among one of the tensest moments I've ever seen captured on film. All the while, the film rises above condemnation of the Church as a whole and delivers a message of acceptance through spirituality that feels true to the characters and important to the LBGTQI community." – John Bradley
