Moore's next topic?

Michael Moore has apparently decided on his next documentary subject, which is, drum roll please...GAY! Dammit. I fear I'm being too simplistic. Let's delve into this a little. Moore aims to tackle homophobia in the States and specifically the way it manifests in the Christian right. The following is taken from a conversation Moore had with The Advocate:

“I think it’s a very ripe subject for someone like me to make a movie about. Simply because we are not there yet and it remains one of the last open wounds on our soul that we are not willing to fix yet,” Moore told The Advocate. “There is nowhere in the four Gospels where Jesus uses the word homosexual.’ The right wing has appropriated this guy … and they have used him to attack gays and lesbians, when he never said a single word against people who are homosexual. Anyone who professes to be a Christian and does that is certainly not following the teachings of Jesus Christ.”

I want to be careful here. I have my own opinions on this matter, but I'm not about to start a moral and political firestorm in the talkback section (although maybe it will be healthy for us to discuss something other than cleavage and sequels). All I'm going to say is that Moore should have a rather easy time at making those on the right look quite absurd. He will cut into them like a butcher into horse heart. Presumably, gay marriage rights will be a huge fighting point in the movie, and Moore should have no problem dealing with that. I hope he follows through with this.
