Christian evangelist Ray Comfort — known for making short films tackling controversial subjects like abortion, evolution and Noah’s ark — is working on a new project that is already drawing the ire of his critics.
Unlike his past documentaries, “Audacity,” a scripted film, will tackle the ever-contentious issue of homosexuality, a subject Comfort had previously avoided.
“I didn’t want to do this movie. When different people kept asking for one that addressed homosexuality, I said an adamant ‘No!’ and I was deadly serious,” he told TheBlaze Tuesday. “It just wasn’t going to happen. One of the major reasons for this was that to speak even slightly against homosexuality nowadays is tantamount to being a hate-filled racist.”
But Comfort, whose crowdfunding campaign in support of the project raised more than $92,000 in just six days, said that God recently changed his mind and set him on a course of addressing the issue by using professional actors to tell an impactful story.
