"We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice,
we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself." Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison (1943-1945)

Ballynahinch Baptist Screening: Voices of the Silenced, Part 1

Took place on 1st March to 15th March 2018

What is the film about?

Voices of the Silenced examines the return of Western European nations to Pansexual Humanism, an ancient philosophy challenged by Judeo-Christian ethics in the Christian era. Two years in the making, this feature documentary was filmed in eight countries. It features more than thirty experts and witnesses who both challenge the "born gay” myth demanding normalisation of homosexual orientation and identity in the church and affirm the right to professional and pastoral support for those seeking change and freedom in sexual expression and feelings.

Prof Robert Gagnon says: "Voices of the Silenced achieves its goal of raising serious challenges to an intolerant liberal fundamentalism on homosexuality by listening to the voices of the oppressed and connecting so-called modern views to Greco-Roman pagan values."

The feature documentary references the Campanian towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum when Titus was Emperor, following the Judean wars which led to the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in AD 70.  In Part 2, to follow, archaeological evidence of a clear Christian witness in this area, just before the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in AD79, is reviewed. In both films, ancient and modern ideologies of sexuality are compared. Testimony of change and attendant professional and pastoral issues are presented. Individual interviews with all participants may be found shortly on voicesofthesilenced.tv.
