Michael Moore may tackle gay rights

He took on General Motors, the NRA, George W. Bush, and the health care system. Michael Moore is now thinking about tackling the anti-gay industry.

Michael Moore may tackle gay rights

Controversial filmmaker Michael Moore has revealed that he might take on homophobia and the anti-gay movement in his next documentary.

"I think it’s a very ripe subject for someone like me to make a movie about," he admitted, in an interview with The Advocate. "Simply because we are not there yet and it remains one of the last open wounds on our soul that we are not willing to fix yet."

Moore, whose latest film Sicko attacks the U.S. health care system, expressed anger at fundamentalist Christians in the U.S. who condemn same-sex marriage.

"There is nowhere in the four Gospels where Jesus uses the word ‘homosexual.’ The right wing has appropriated this guy … and they have used him to attack gays and lesbians, when he never said a single word against people who are homosexual. Anyone who professes to be a Christian and does that is certainly not following the teachings of Jesus Christ."
