The Christian man expresses that he definitely believes that being gay is a choice, at least before he goes to live for thirty days with this gay man. After the thirty days, however, he senses that he is not so sure about his strict views. It sounds like it was a learning experience for the Christian man, which is hopeful in its own way. And, that premise sounds like something Oprah would want to hear more about. Tell me how it appears on the actual show. Vanessa
Thanks Vanessa. I was at Oprah's website this morning too, but I didn't find that info. I really wish it wasn't the extremes here though. I don't know a lot of gay men who live in that kind of environment, and it seems unfair to show that as the "norm" for us. On the other hand, this isn't Oprah's doing, she's pretty much reporting on the FX show. and of course, we understand that FX would want to juxtapose the extremes so that there's some drama and then ratings. Thanks again for finding that info. that does make me feel better too.
