Parents Beware--"Love, Simon", Not a "Romantic" Movie

Parents and grandparents should beware of the deceptive marketing around the movie, "Love, Simon" (PG 13) which opened in theaters this past weekend.

While billed as a trendy romance, it isn't.

It's the first "gay" romantic film with a full-throated Hollywood marketing campaign.

It's homosexual indoctrination for the straight world. Particularly impressionable kids.

The movie trailer introduces it like this: "My name's Simon. For the most part, my life is normal. I have a family that I actually like, and there's my friends. So I'm just like you, except that I have one huge secret: nobody knows I'm gay."

The Christian family oriented One News Now says, "The storyline is how Simon 'comes out' or announces to the world that he's gay. The characters are relatable, sympathetic and lovable. The producers are hopeful audiences will yearn for Simon to be accepted and find his true love..."

This is a very deceptive film based on tapping the emotions and feelings of the audience.

The Barna Group has found repeatedly that kids from biblical Christian homes can be indoctrinated by homosexual activists, first because the indoctrination is pervasive in the culture---classroom, entertainment, etc.

And secondly, because homosexual activists, after years and years of activism, have learned to appeal to the "feelings" of good kids, particularly Christian kids---and adults, as well.

The Barna Group, which I often quote in this Faith and Freedom Daily article on a number of subjects, has produced several short videos ( link 3 ) on moral relativism and the Gen Z kids, including one produced in January dealing with the moral implications of relativism in this group. Check it out. It's only 6 minutes and could help you make a difference in your child's future and relationship with God.

This "Love, Simon" film is the most aggressive in soft, emotional indoctrination I've seen from the homosexual community.

Peter Labarbera, with Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, warns young movie goers to look closely. He says, "If kids could see this is the product of years and years and years of activism [they'd understand] it's not quite as innocent as it seems."

But then much of our current culture is never "as it seems."

This is why God's ancient Proverbs were given for times such as our own. Note Proverbs 14:12--"There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death" (NKJV).

This past weekend, "Love, Simon" was third in box office income with $11.5 million. Tomb Raider ($23.5 million) and the faith based "I Can Only Imagine" ($17 million) were #1 and 2.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Beware. Be Prayerful.
