Keep Walking

Looking deeper into chopsthemovie.com / Donnie Davies

As reported earlier, the domain name "lovegodsway.com" was created on 13 Jan 2005. Just over a month later, chopsthemovie.com was registered. C.H.O.P.S. (described by "Donnie" below) is his alledged programme for making gays into heterosexuals:
C.H.O.P.S is the powerful new program developed by Christian Youth expert Donnie Davies. C.H.O.P.S stands for CHANGING HOMOSEXUALS into ORDINARY PEOPLE.

If you have been having feelings that you DO NOT want to have towards people of the same sex as you, then this is the program for you.

If you've been acting on those same feelings, then this is DEFINATELY the program you've been looking for.

Donnie Davies
What are the odds that chopsthemovie and lovegodsway are related? Well, "Donnie" claims to live in Dallas, TX. Bruce E. Anderson of Anderson Consulting is also based in Dallas. According to Google, the name and telephone number are valid. Googling a but further, on this webpage, it says: "Bruce Anderson has been a member of the Lincoln Chapter since 1977. He had been a media specialist in education for 10 years and was asked to help provide visual enhancement to the Continentals annual show in 1975 and 1976. Bruce complied and his talents helped to make each of those shows a success. He lends his talents to our shows to this day." -- could this be the same Bruce Anderson?

Time will tell... but as time goes on, as I had originally guessed, it looks like a LonelyGirl15-style publicity stunt...

"Donnie" is running out of places to put his video online! Perhaps he will eventually learn that he will need to host it himself, on his servers and his bandwidth at his expense! YouTube and Google Video took down his hateful song, and MySpace went a step further and deleted his accounts, as well as his alleged band's account.

He found an obscure video hosting site, glumbert.com and embedded the video into his own websites, lovegodsway and eveningservice. Once I found this, I drafted this letter:
Dear Sir,

You are harbouring a VERY hateful music video on your site at http://www.glumbert.com/media/godhates

YouTube, Google Video, MySpace and other video content providers have banded together to ban this video from the eyes of children and others that could be harmed by "Donnie Davies'" message of intolerance.

Please cease and desist sponsoring this message of hate; or at the very least, require proof of age when viewing it.

The video was just removed. Although the video has entertainment value because it's so ridiculous, I found that the band was linking to glumbert from their site, and to that end, I do not want to be guilty by association.

Keep the pressure up, keep his video offline and keep the spotlight OFF of him! Publicity, even BAD publicity, helps him, his alleged "cause", and others that believe his message!
