    That’s an interesting time capsule. I wonder what became of those people.

    Yes I find this clip fascinating, and Frisbee is very charismatic. Kuhlman reminds me of a door-to-door Snuggie seller.

    Frisbee, a runaway at 15, was disowned and eventually fired for being openly gay by his Christian collegues from the 2 denominations he helped start, the Calvary Chapel and the Vineyard Movement. Though he did not hide his homosexuality, he always verbally denied he was gay and maintained homosexuality was a sin. He died of AIDS-related complications in 1993.

    Kuhlman, who was “born again” at 14, and preaching/faith healing at 16, died during open-heart surgery in 1976.

    Then I’m glad I saw the video. Those facts are so sad that I’m glad I got to see a few minutes when the two of them were obviously very happy.

    “Obviously very happy.” That wasn’t my overall interpretation of Frisbee and Kuhlman in this clip. Granted, it’s a just a brief video. But Frisbee, to me, seemed very “self-appointed”- that’s the only way I can describe it. Nothing wrong with that. My take on Kuhlman- she was a bit frightened and insecure. But of course they both put on their happy faces for the camera, that was obvious.

    They seemed relaxed and cheerful. Maybe that was fake, or maybe it was only in a setting like that one that they could be that way. If it was fake, it was great acting.

    Dunno. Maybe I’ve had a lot of experience reading people in that setting or maybe I’m overly suspicious.
