Chad Allen is openly gay and a proud advocate of gay rights
A Christian made movie about the real-life story of a son who makes
peace with an Amazon tribe that killed his missionary father, has
sparked controversy in the evangelical world after the casting of a gay
actor for the lead role.
The film, End of the Spear, stars Chad Allen as slain missionary Nate
Saint. Mr Allen is openly gay and is a proud advocate of gay rights.
Newsweek revealed criticisms made by Chrisitian ministers aimed at Every
Tribe Entertainement, an evangelical film company.
"This story is perhaps one of the most precious, well-known mission
stories of the last century," Jason Janz, an assistant pastor in
Colorado told Newsweek.
"I believe it was bad judgment to cast one of Hollywood's foremost gay
activists in the leading role."
