What do evangelicals and gays have in common?

Movies geared toward their audiences typically suck, as Salon’s Andrew O’Hehir notes in his review of the new Christian-themed movie, “Soul Surfer”:

At the risk of offending many people in many different directions, Christian cinema reminds me of gay cinema. If, that is, gay cinema were permanently stuck in 1986, with a self-ghettoizing mandate to present positive role models for youth and tell an anodyne but uplifting story that sends a message of hope.
