Religious Anti-Gay/Anti-Lesbian and LGBT Movies
Endorsed by Sioux Falls Atheists

Sioux Falls Atheists recommends the following movies that describe the extremist religious views on homosexuality in the United States. The level of preached hate is unbelievable. Most religious leaders reject these extremist views, but the Evangelists love to rave about Gays and Lesbians. The movie Fish Out Of Water examines the Bible for what it says about being gay or lesbian. Religious scholars and religious leaders agree the wording being taken from Bible is being taken completely out of context.

The Sioux Falls Atheists also found One Nation Under God to also be illuminating. Trying to cure being gay and being lesbian using "heterosexual" activities and prayer does not work. It can't. Being gay or being lesbian is genetically driven, not driven by one's upbringing or learning. (Actually being gay or being lesbian is driven by a combination of genes, there is no single "Gay" gene, but a larger set of various genes that acting together result in a person's desire for someone of the same sex.) You can't change your genes by playing football, playing with dolls, or by praying. Recently the leading "Change them by Praying" association recently closed down after admitting they had never cured anyone. Imagine that.

2-5-20 Same-sex attraction isn't an evolutionary paradox - here's why
Our explanations for how same-sex attraction evolved are wrong – it's the spectrum of sexuality that is important. HOW did human same-sex attraction come to be? At first glance it seems to be an evolutionary paradox. For a trait to evolve, it has to be passed on to children to whom it confers some sort of advantage. But as gay sex, of itself, cannot yield offspring, we should expect same-sex attraction to go extinct. Evolutionary biologists have long struggled with this paradox, but my colleagues and I believe that if you come to the puzzle from a different angle, the apparent contradiction disappears. The trick is to recognise the complexity of human sexual activity and sexuality. Firstly, same-sex attraction only looks like a paradox if we consider human populations to be made up of two distinct groups: people who are exclusively gay and people who are exclusively straight. But human sexuality isn’t like this. Every study since the pioneering work of Alfred Kinsey and his colleagues in the 1940s and 50s has backed up the idea that sexuality varies continuously from a majority of people who identify as exclusively straight to a minority of people who identify as exclusively gay. In the middle are a range of people, including those who identify as bisexual, mostly straight or mostly gay. Acknowledging this spectrum radically changes the evolutionary question. It means that we should be asking how variation in sexuality evolved, not just how same-sex attraction has evolved. Secondly, the majority of sex, be it gay or straight, isn’t for reproduction. For humans and our chimpanzee and bonobo relatives, sex has a range of social functions that include play, social bonding, affiliation and even barter, conflict resolution, dominance and appeasement. Thinking about the evolution of sex has to consider these social functions as well.
