From gay oral to mayoral: Bruno's 'change' advocate to be Birmingham's next head?

by Jeremy Hooper

TrautweinYou might remember Jody Trautwein from his appearance in the movie Bruno, wherein he attempted to "cure" the lead character's homosexuality through the power of Jesus. Well now the "ex-gay" advocate has a bigger goal in mind than simply gaining unwitting laughs as part of a mockumentary. Namely: He wants to be mayor of Birmingham:

Jody Trautwein will officially kick-off his campaign on Monday, November 16th. Trautwein is the youth pastor at Point of Grace Ministries in Birmingham and has preached across the United States. He is possibly most well-known for being an unwitting cast member in the movie “Bruno.” Trautwein was shown trying to help the movie's star convert from a homosexual life to a heterosexual one. The minister says he was tricked into being a part of a movie, but says he is happy he was able to spread the word of God to a nationwide audience..

Jody Trautwein will announce his campaign on Monday at the Point of Grace Ministries, located in the old Wildwood Wynnsong theater. He says his goal is to transform the city.

Well, a "change" message did work for Barack. We just hope if elected, Mr. Trautwein will still allow men to legally enter into AL (or STEVE, or JOE, or TOM...).
