Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz cancelled an appearance at one of the most prominent megachurches in the U.S. after an online petition from Change.org condemned the followers as anti-gay. Schultz had been scheduled to speak at The Global Leadership Summit organized by the Willow Creek Association, based in South Barrington, Ill.
Mississippi Queen is a new documentary film that investigates one family's struggle with "ex-gay" ministries and the reality of being gay. The film, created by Paige Williams, involves a woman, her partner, and their son living a happy life in spite of her parents' creation of an "ex-gay" ministry.
Williams and her partner of 10 years are raising their son in Missoula, Montana - a relatively progressive town. Jack was born via artificial insemination.
Her parents are founders of In His Time - an “ex-gay” ministry.
Dr. Warren Throckmorton, producer of the documentary I Do Exist has started a lively discussion on his blog.
At issue is the number of studies done on same-sex parenting, and how much favorable data it may take to satisfy questions about our ability to be good parents.
One commenter on WThrockmorton.com writes:
"I do not believe that people are born gay," Pastor Salvatore Roggio said, speaking in front of the sign.
