Most importantly, Fish out of Water sits down with hundreds of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender folks to impart their experiences with faith and sexuality.

Fish Out of Water (2009)
23 July 2013 | by lissitellezSee all my reviews

This movie is well documented uses scripture it keeps your interest going it is fast pace. I would like to say that God does love a gay person however even though He does love gay people does not mean He approves this lifestyle. God does not want you to be deceived. He loves you too much. The bible does say there will be severe consequences and whether you accept it as truth or not does not make it any less true. He is the only one who can set you free the choice is up to you. He wants you as you are and if you give Him permission He will totally transform the person that you are to the one God says you can be. He is waiting with love and open arms He will not take anyone by force.
