Christian Reaction to Brokeback Mountain

After reading and viewing Brokeback Mountain in class, I was curious to see the types of reactions floating around on the web. Here’s what Christianity Today had to say. Harry Forbes includes as part of his review: “Looked at from the point of view of the need for love which everyone feels but few people can articulate, the plight of these guys is easy to understand while their way of dealing with it is likely to surprise and shock an audience. … While the actions taken by Ennis and Jack cannot be endorsed, the universal themes of love and loss ring true.”
