As part of a misleading marketing gimmick, Christian pastor Ray Comfort is planning to fly a rainbow banner over the city of San Francisco later this month to promote his recently released antigay movie Audacity.
According to the movie’s official website, the massive multicolored banner will be flying over the city for two days promoting the movie, with stops in other major cities with sizable LGBT populations such as New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Denver, Austin, and Houston planned for the near future.
“I wanted to do everything I can to get Audacity out of the church and into the world,” Comfort told conservative news site WND about the decision to promote his antigay film this way. “My big fear is that it’s going to stay within the proverbial choir. My concern is for the lost and this movie is made for the lost, so one way to get the lost’s attention is to fly a four-story-high banner across San Francisco and 10 other cities throughout the U.S., so we’re going to do that. I hope it gets people’s attention.”
The movie, which was produced by Comfort using his Christian publishing company Living Waters, is free to stream on YouTube and, as the description of the 50-minute clip claims, “uses a unique approach to address a very sensitive subject in contemporary society.”
“This movie paints a very clear gospel message,” Comfort asserted to WND. “It goes into the issue of homosexuality and Christianity in a very loving, compassionate, but uncompromising way.”
