Actor Ellen Page encountered a man spewing hate in the street this week. The man stated:
“Homosexuality, that’s a demonic, toxic feeling. That’s what you become, that’s not who you are. Who you are is when you come out your mother’s womb.”
Page wasn’t having it!
“That’s not scientific, you’re wrong and that’s really hurtful If you could open your heart and be less ignorant to LGBT people, I think you’ll have a much more beautiful life,” she stated calmly, though the preacher kept interrupting her. Ultimately she said, “We’re not gonna get anywhere. You’ll believe this your whole life. I feel for you.”
Good for Ellen for trying to peacefully educate and reach someone! We need more communication with people who don’t share our perspectives! The man went on to tell Page:
“When you take your last breath, and I take mine… YOU’LL SEE!”
