Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn: Who's Afraid of Gay Cowboys

Today I surfed over to Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn and read a great post Who’s Afraid Of A Couple Of Gay Cowboys? It points out Hollyweirds Gay agenda in making Brokeback Mountain and also its agenda in how it promotes the film.
Is it bigotry against homosexuals that is to blame for the fact that this movie isn’t being as widely distributed as other films?
It’s because theaters are in business to make money and they are not going to show movies that they do not believe will draw an audience and earn the theater money.
The Ang Lee film, which follows the 20-year forbidden romance between two roughneck ranch hands, earned $13,599 per theater, compared with $9,305 for weekend winner “King Kong” and $8,225 for “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”

Okay, that’s nice.
If Brokeback Mountain in it’s widest release is being shown in 269 theaters.
The Chronicles of Narnia in it’s widest release is being shown in 3,853 theaters.
King Kong in it’s widest release is being shown in 3,626 theaters.
So not only does Hollywood want us to believe that the Gay lifestlye is a normal alternative. They want us to believe that everybody has accepted this fact because Brokeback Mountain has a higher per screen gross than blockbusters King Kong and Narnia. Don't buy it. The blockbusters are being seen in at least 13 TIMES as many theaters. Go to Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn and read the whole thing.

UPDATE: DL Foster stopped by in the comments and mentioned his post Broken Art Imitates Broken Life at his blog Perspectives in Motion. It is an excellent post about the film from a Christian perspective. He raises some very interesting points. And he ruffled quite a few gay feathers as seen in his comment section. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
