About 15 members gathered around a picnic table and prayed that "nobody at all" would show up to the event and referred to any act of homosexuality as "wicked and sinful." They also prayed that a mishap like the projector failing to work would prevent anyone from seeing the documentary and also that the film's footage would be replaced by the "gospel appearing on the screen."

I guess god ignored their petty prayers. Religion sure does bring out the stupid in people.

"The fact that [the prayer people] can't even be open to discussion and that people misuse religion to promote that mentality is to me shocking and painful," Wilson said.

Oh man, Wilson! Where have you been? Delusional thinking based on religious belief is rampant in America. It is a culturally sanctioned and encouraged mental disorder (in fact, called Delusional Disorder). What did you expect?

Wilson, my advice to you: "Cast not your pearls before swine...."
