"Jody Trautwein, the Alabama youth pastor who was duped by Sacha Baron Cohen who-posing as Bruno-convinced him he was a homosexual seeking to change his sexual orientation and become a Christian."

How the hell was Jody Trautwein "duped" into Christianty? Some sort of a ruse or mind trick?

The sincere explanation of this rube-talibangelical-bigot's thought process while he was being baited by the Bruno people seems far funnier than the film itself (from what I can tell by the previews and reviews, etc.)

>Mr. Lewis then asked if I would be willing to participate in a panel discussion talking about topics such as the negative influence the entertainment industry can have on our children and our families by exposing them to immoral issues. I told him I would be interested and we scheduled an appointment for him to come and meet with me. At that time, he continued the same story as our initial phone call further revealing they had a young man in Huntsville, Alabama, who said he was ready to come out the homosexual lifestyle and asked if I would consider counseling him, leading him to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the only Person who can truly change our lives from the inside out, and give him practical steps to live out his new lifestyle as a son of God who has been transformed from a homosexual man to a straight man. He proceeded to ask me for some background information as well as the types of things I may say in helping to lead this young man desiring change to a new life in Christ. He captured my comments on film to take back to his producers to see if the words I had to offer may truly help this man transform his life through Christ.

>I later received a phone call from Mr. Lewis of Amesbury Chase Productions saying his producers wanted me to come and film a segment for the documentary leading this young man desiring change to Christ and giving him practical steps to live out a new, transformed life as a straight man. I traveled to Huntsville, Alabama, to meet with the film crew at the location of the home they temporarily converted into a television set decorated as a counseling office. I was told they would film the beginning of the transformational process, a prayer leading him to Christ, and would continue following this young man as he walked out his new life in Christ based upon the practical steps I had given him according to Godís word.
