Just got back from the controversial movie “Brokeback Mountain” directed by Ang Lee.
This movie aroused age-long disputes, which surprisingly, had a lot of the so-called modern, digital age people thinking, including yours truly.
But seriously speaking, are we condoning a heresy so entrenched in our society and turn it into a dogma accepted by all levels of our society without disputes, variances and hatred?
I believe the answer is NO.
People I know still look upon them condescendingly and with utmost contempt. Many said they do not mind but do they really? Some proclaimed that they can exist in this world but they had better get off their feet running before they are clubbed to death.
So much about “accepting” gays and lesbians in our midst. Hypocrites.
Alma’s tears did not bring Ennis back to her arms. No, she did not lose to a man. She lost simply because the love bonded between the two young men filled every fibre of their being. Ennis should be in hell for inflicting such pain which would scar the rest of her life. But if you ponder upon how Ennis could have felt all those years, I trust it would have taken an insurmountable courage to suppress what’s within him. He never knew how much his love was for Jack until he saw the shirt Jack took silently with him when they first met.
*A lot of the cinema goers were brimming with tears after this scene*
You will never know how much somebody means to you until he or she is gone and left a void in your heart so vacant that nothing seems to be able to fill it up with. This is not about a story of two silly cowboys falling in love. It was more like how poignant one’s love can be when it happens at the wrong time, wrong place.
Ang Lee impressed this upon me – love knows no boundaries.
Are these “different” people abandoned by GOD? Are they condemned to hell forever?
I shall leave the following for you to think about. Feel free to comment 🙂
Love suffereth long, and is kind;
love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own,
is not provoked, taketh not account of evil;
rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth;
beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
1 Corinthians 13:4 ~ 7, ASV
