In 1992, a majority of Colorado’s voters passed Amendment 2 to the state’s constitution, which would have denied gays and lesbians the right to claim discrimination at the local level in jobs, housing, and public accommodations.  Bill Moyers travels to Colorado Springs, the town that gave birth to Amendment 2 that has become ground zero of a “holy war” between conservative Christian values and homosexual rights.  Moyers listens to the voices along the fault line of this controversy talking first with conservative evangelical pastors and congregants, and then with two gay rights activists, one of whom is also Christian.
