Cure For Love: The Homosexuality Antidote is God

60 minutes 6.8/10 based on 16 votes

You may be happy to learn that some evangelical Christians believe they have found a cure for homosexuality. Or, that last sentence may have gotten you quite upset. Human Rights: the right to practice religion and the right to practice a lifestyle at odds with the Church. An very sad and moving documentary.

The film brings us inside this unusual Christian subculture and follows the lives of several young people whose homosexuality is at odds with their religious beliefs. These are very religious Christians who are going to great lengths to suppress – let’s be honest; this is not a cure – their homosexuality identities. This is a very sad documentary.

    Any documentary about religion is sad. Homosexuality has nothing to do with the tragedy of this documentary, but rather the fact those in it believe in the bible what so ever.

  • Simo

    Meh…

  • madscirat

    I have no pity for stupid people. When fascists and extremists get out their bullhorns it is stupid people who march to their orders. If those same stupids who have been the driving herd behind all humanity’s great crimes want to torture themselves for a change then more power to them. In my opinion, this is a huge improvement over them torturing other people which has been the norm throughout history.

    I am so glad that I believe in the Ancient Roman Gods. (At least to me) it makes so much more sense and is so more open thought. All of this “Homosexuality and God” stuff gets really old. These “people” are just attention seeking morons that really have something missing in their lives. Their motto…”D.R.A.M.A. = Dumb Retards Asking for More Attention.”

    I am neither religious nor gay, and yet I identify with these people. I know what it is like when your super ego demands that you be what you simply cannnot be, and you are split against yourself.

    • loic

      you should read some of eckart tolle’s stuff on seperating the ego from the self, he’s helped me deal with my issues

  • Wayne

    Once again, someone’s invisible cloud dwelling friend manages to skew the truth and mess up someone else.
    Gay isn’t something that can be fixed or cured.
    The so called “ex-gays” in this documentary are still gay, and will never be able to truly find themselves and live a happy fulfilled life, because whether they know it or not, they are just denying and trying to hide their true self FROM THEMSELVES. They will always feel like there is something missing and try to fill that empty space with the love, hope and faith of something that doesn’t even exist (God and their heterosexuality). In the long run that’s going to lead to even bigger issues. This isn’t about hiding the truth and lying to someone else, this is a bigger problem… it’s about lying and hiding from yourself.

    I just have to say that within the first 2 minutes of hearing Ana talk, she is NOT happy to be marrying a man, no matter how much she wants to. That look of pure disgust when she was talking about marrying him…it will not last. Just be yourselves! If you believe in God, then YOU were created in his image.

    • racheal

      She looks so incredibly sad throughout the entire documentary. My heart aches for her….

      • djfree79

        Don’t judge a book by its cover. Ana and Brian are still married, and still quite happy to be together. They really are quite a lovely couple, and still very good friends of mine.

  • Dox

    6:17 Most awkward kiss ever.

  • Nicola-Jane Wiseman

    Peddling bigotry under the guise of religion. Really – I laugh at them.

  • scott

    I can’t imagine the level of cognitive dissonance here. They admit they are homosexual, they believe they were created by god…. and yet….
    I just don’t understand.

    • Owen Zappa

      It truly is sad that a collection of oral history in the form of allegory, that has been translated many times by many cultures, has caused so much pain and suffering over the centuries. Maybe one day humanity will finally put these bronze age ideas to rest.

  • kat8615

    I’m still really struggling with this, and I don’t really know what to do. Guess I’ll just marry a guy and life in a loveless relationship like Ana.

    • stella gkovesi

      don’t do it honey, who are you living for. take another thought and look. there have been religions for as long as humanity has been around, who’s to say which one is write and wrong? why is the one you were so luckily born with right? why life with regret and sadness because of a religion? just like people don’t know if god is real, neither do people no he is not real. ultimately believe in your gut feeling not your words of doubt. of others words. you have the freedom to be you and love others in your country im guessing. i am currently in a country where it is frowned apon by everyone and you are shunned for having your sexuality. you have the freedom girl take advantage of it. look how akward and out of place she looks, acts and feels. also in the bible, it says you should not wear one of more materials in your clothing, and in the line after it says man shall not lye with other man, it also says don’t eat shrimp.. so are you going to eat shrimp? wear cotton and polyster… be with a woman?, or are you going to listen to an organized religions interpretation of god is. feel and think what you want of god, why do you need someone else to tell you who and what he wants. why would he shame you in something you want

      • kat8615

        I really don’t know. It’s scary, I guess. Hey, where do you live?

  • Brad David

    It turns out that religion is a handicap, to an honest understanding of yourself and the world

  • Camilla

    woah.. one of the saddest documentaries I’ve ever seen.. I’m really amazed what people are willing to do to get into heaven. Ana looked so so sad troughout the whole documentary and I Really hope for her that someday she realizes just like that other guy that it’s okay to be who you are whatever religion you may have. I feel sorry for Brian and Ana..

  • Bargain-Basement Howard Hughes

    Im starting a bible-burning religion. dont get me wrong, it will be for bonfires for the homeless, and we’ll make hamburgers out of preachers for them. At least fred phelps died and not a single god damn news outlet gave a damn.. or maybe I was just asleep that week, but fuck em. People like him and his daughter I see here in the related docus, should probably used to feed zoo animals. Nothing wrong with that.

  • Bargain-Basement Howard Hughes

    “young people who struggle with same gender attraction” do that to a great extent because of other fucking idiots, send the other idiots to camps.. ah fuck it, feed them to zoo animals too
