"In our Bible, Adam and Eve are both women," says Mitchell "Mail is pouring in. I can barely keep up. We're posting it on our blog (www.princessdianabible.com) as fast as we can. This is a textbook case of how the Internet is viral. In one week we went round the world and got picked up by major sites like The Guardian in UK, Belief.net; and Pink News. I'm getting calls from all over the world.
Mitchell will adapt and direct the Princess Diana Bible as a two-part miniseries: The Gay Old Testament and The Gay New Testament. "There are 116 versions of the Bible. I don't see why we can't have one."
Made for under $53,000, sci fi comedy "Horror In The Wind (trailer)," has been banned by Allen Theaters of New Mexico. NBC nightly news recently reported that Allen Theaters refused to screen the locally produced comedy because it is too political. "Horror In The Wind" is about two bio-geneticists whose Formula 4708 reverses the whole world's sexual orientation.
Allen Theaters, the only Cineplex in Alamogordo where the film was shot, was asked by Weber to do a single late night screening to comply with Screen Actors Guild regulations. According to theater owner, Russell Allen, it is "too political." Alamogordo, famous for being the town where Christians burned the Harry Potter books, is referenced in the movie.
Allen Theaters screens extremely violent films. "They are offended by political comedy but have no problem with violence," said Mitchell. "Allen thinks that killing and murder is better than laughter. So much for family values." When NBC News showed up with a camera at Allen's Cineplex in Alamogordo, the manager refused to be interviewed on camera. Allen did not return phone calls made by NBC News reporter Katie Ryan.
"Horror In The Wind" is set in 2017 when Pat Robertson and James Dobson win the White House with a campaign theme of the "War on Sex." Robertson spreads an untested sex suppression formula throughout the world. To everyone's shock, Formula 4708 does not suppress sex drive but changes it. Within a week the entire world is gay. Eventually people prefer it and amend the constitution to ban heterosexual marriage.
"I got the idea for the Princess Diana Bible from 'Horror In The Wind'," says Mitchell. "After the world becomes gay, religious people create The Princess Diana Bible, which says that gay is right and straight is a sin. Then they burn all the King James Bibles." According to Mitchell, "There are scholars who say that like many priests, Jesus was gay. In Biblical times homosexuality was so commonplace, no one gave it a second thought. It was heterosexuality that was considered sinful."
One man posted this on the Princess Diana Bible Blog: ‘The Lord God reminds you of this that if anyone adds to his word God will add to him/her the plagues described in his word. And if anyone takes away from his word God will take his/her name out of the Book of Life.'
"Sounds like a very mean and nasty God. Lots of emails threaten God will punish me but I'm not scared. These people lack faith or they wouldn't get so hysterical. There are 116 versions of the Bible. Why is any of them better than ours? Gays are the only group left in America that it's still okay to hate. If they hate so much, why are they called Christians?"
"Horror In The Wind" opens at the Guild Cinema in Albuquerque December 12. Rising star, Perren Hedderson ("Hero Tomorrow") leads the cast of 50 New Mexico actors. See the trailer at www.horrorinthewind.com
