in regards to Christianity as of that time period in which the church
proclaimed it an immortal sin to love someone of the same sex. When he's
arguing with Angelo - when he was first trying to pack Angelo's clothes
and send him to L.A. to be safe - you hear the anger and bitterness when
he talks about how it's impossible for there to be love between them
according to Angelo's God.
