Back in September, I reported on how this was not a subject that Comfort wanted to address.
“I didn’t want to do this movie,” he said at that time. When different people kept asking for one that addressed homosexuality, I said an adamant ‘No!’ and I was deadly serious. 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.”
Comfort has taken on the subject of abortion, evolution and Noah’s ark, but he believes that this film will be too hot for theaters to handle. In fact, he is expecting protests and boycotts from those in the sodomite community. This is to be expected, especially in light of the account of the city of Sodom in Genesis 19.
However, there are always those in sin who are willing to hear the truth and the message of redemption found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To that end, Comfort is putting out his film in hope that God will use it to free people who are locked into this behavior.
The Blaze previously reported on the story line of the movie.
“‘Audacity’ doesn’t stereotype or vilify gays in the slightest,” Comfort said. “This movie isn’t motivated by an ounce of hatred. It’s just the opposite. We love gay people, and that’s what we believe will be the conclusion of most who see it.”
The central plot will surround a character named Peter — a bike messenger who is “on the brink of losing his job.” Peter, a Christian, struggles to find himself in a culture that rejects the Bible and is faced with trying to discover truth and convey it to his friends in a loving way.
“He’s forced into a clash between his most cherished convictions and a most volatile issue,” Comfort said.
Though it is scripted, there is one scene in the film that includes an interview between Comfort and two lesbians — an exchange that ends on a positive note, he told TheBlaze.
“There is a reality clip woven into the storyline of the movie where I interview two lesbians after I saw them kissing in Huntington Beach, California,” Comfort said. “At the conclusion of the interview they enthusiastically said on-camera that they really appreciated how I had spoken with them.”
“‘Audacity’ will rock your assumptions,” said Kendrick.
