Openly Straight Christian Activist To Play Gay Part

The funniest thing I've run across this week...thanks to Thorn for the link, and to the Mind behind it.

Kirk Cameron, actor and Christian activist has been tagged to play the part of Chad Allen in the proposed made for TV biopic “The Start of the Rainbow at the End of the Spear”. This choice has spurred much discussion on GLBT blogs and websites wondering why a gay actor couldn’t be found to act in the role. Gary Winkle, president of GPGOT (Gays Playing Gays On Television) captures the prevailing sentiment well: “Its not so much that he’s straight, but that he is openly straight about his straightness and openly Christian about his Christianity. I definitely am boycotting this movie”.

I wouldn't be too worried wondering why they couldn't find a gay actor to assume this role.

I would be more worried wondering why they couldn't find a real actor to assume this role.
