Content:

(HoHoHo, FRFRFR, C, L, S, N, A, D, M) Strong homosexual worldview that also preaches a liberal, heretical, Antinomian view of Christianity with a couple scenes set inside a Christian church, preacher mentions God’s “message of love” & people pray before Thanksgiving meal; 3 obscenities & 5 profanities; no violence; man with homosexual attitude kisses two men during the progress of the story; naturalistic nudity during swimming scene; alcohol use; no smoking; and, miscellaneous immorality such as antinomianism, someone says, “Good luck,” to man who’s trying to convince another man into loving him & gossip.

Summary:

BIG EDEN tells what happens when the residents of a bucolic town in Montana help a prodigal son find homosexual happiness with the local owner of the general store. BIG EDEN not only sets out to praise the ultimate joys and normalcy of homosexuality, it also tries to give a heretical, liberal Christian sanction to such unbiblical immorality.

Review:

A “date movie” for homosexual couples, BIG EDEN tells what happens when a painter named Henry, who considers himself homosexual, returns to his bucolic roots in Montana after his grandfather, Sam, suffers a stroke. When everyone in the fictional town of Big Eden figures out that Henry likes guys, they secretly try to set him up with Pike, the lonely American Indian who runs the local general store. Henry, however, still has a thing for the high school football star, Dean, who’s divorced and back in town with his two sons. Although Dean obviously lusts for Henry, he can’t quite bring himself to take the final leap into perversion.

It’s bad enough that BIG EDEN sets out (in a far more tasteful way than most pro-homosexual movies, by the way) to praise the ultimate joys and normalcy of homosexuality. The movie, however, also brings Christianity into the mix. Thus, virtually all the townspeople viewers meet in this movie are seen attending church a couple times, but everyone is completely supportive of Henry and Pike’s homosexual leanings. This is, of course, the Counterfeit Christianity of liberal antinomianism, or lawlessness, which makes a mockery of the power, love and truth of God’s Holy Word.
