Video Preview:This Is What Love In Action Looks Like!!!

Filmmaker Morgan Jon Fox has released an extended preview for the feature-length documentary, “This Is What Love In Action Looks Like.” Video above.

According to the filmmaker:

In the summer of 2005, a 16-year-old from Memphis, Tenn., wrote on his MySpace blog about his parents sending him to a “Fundamentalist Christian” program that claimed to offer “freedom from homosexuality.” What followed is a modern-day message in a bottle, as teen-agers in the local community stood up for their friend with daily protests which eventually grew to include a plethora of individuals demonstrating at the facility in what would become an international news story.

The documentary features several former clients of the organization who tell their personal stories about the time they spent within the programs walls, including exclusive never before seen interviews with several teenagers who were forced into the “Refuge” program

Justice MH: I don't know why right-wing groups like Focus on the Family think in their mind all gays need is love, and the gay will just go away. The video gives a view of what kind of love is in action when trying help gay and lesbians change their change their sexual orientation, which is unsuccessful and hasn't been proven.

The sad thing about love in action is it gives guilt to the parents, and that is wrong on so many levels. Just because you have a gay son or daughter does not mean the parent made a mistake or did anything wrong in their child's life. The Parent argument, especially the mother, it is getting old, lame, and there is no scientific proof of what "love in action" says. I can't wait for the documentary, and try my best to find the love. But then again, what's love got to do with it?

This Is What Love In Action Looks Like will premiere in February 2008.
