IT MAKES YOU WONDER WHY THEY’VE GIVEN KEVIN SPACEY SUCH A HARD TIME…
The Bible is full of warnings about the effect that widespread disdain for biblical morality will have on society. Isaiah speaks of those who call evil good, and good evil (Is. 5:20). Jesus said that the eye is the lamp of the body (Mat. 6:22). In the Bible, vision is symbolic of judgment. That’s why Samson’s eyes were put out: he had exhibited poor judgment.
So, when the Bible calls homosexuality an abomination, we would expect to find, in the unbeliever, a revulsion against this moral code. We should expect them to, rather, embrace it and call it beautiful.
And that’s exactly what we find as we approach the release of a new “romance” hitting the theaters over Thanksgiving weekend.
Amorous buzz over a new movie about gay love is sweeping through the mainstream media. It’s titled “Call Me By Your Name,” and it stars Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet. Based on a 2007 book of the same name, the movie is set to be released on November 24, 2017.
The movie, set in the 1980s, is about a 24-year-old handsome writer named Oliver who seduces a 17-year-old confused young man named Elio.
THE PLOT SUMMARY
According to the New York Times book review, the book (and movie) is about a 17-year-old “son of the esteemed and open-minded scholar and his wife,” who then “falls fast and hard for Oliver, a 24-year-old postdoc teaching at Columbia,” who came to stay with them to finish his book.
In describing the characters, we’re told that “Elio is smart, nervous, naïve, but also bold; Oliver is handsome, seductive and breezily American,” among other things.
And this sordid tale is getting all the pre-Oscar juice that Hollywood can give it…
