| Another movie about persecuted Christians and evil homosexuals.
This 58 minute film was produced by the American Family Association (AFA), an anti-gay group labeled as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. It tells the story of Ted, happily married Christian father of three. One day, he signs a petition in support of traditional marriage (that is, against gay marriage). Before long, his name appears in a gay newspaper and gay activists make threatening phone calls and start picketing outside his business. It's never made clear why the gay activist singled Ted out, of all the people who signed the petition, but it may have something to do with the fact that the gay rights group and it's leader, an evil Italian, want his business to fail so that they can move into his property. Ted didn't want to make a big deal out of this, but now he has to decide whether he will stand up for his beliefs, even as the angry, intolerant gays want to silence him. The movie ends rather abruptly and I wonder why they didn't bother making it into a real feature length film.

"Accidental Activist" is another (lesser known) movie in the genre of Christian films in which Christians in America are portrayed as persecuted for their beliefs (better known examples would be "God's Not Dead", "Last Ounce of Courage" and "Christmas with a Capital C". If you like that genre and think this sounds like a great story, give "Accidental Activist" a try. If not, don't bother.
