For the Bible Tells Me So (2007)

Sobre o filme

Can the love between two people ever be an abomination? Is the chasm separating homosexuals and Christianity too wide to cross? How can the Bible be used to justify hate? These are the questions at the heart of Daniel Karslake’ For The Bible Tells Me So. This provocative, entertaining film concisely reconciles homosexuality and a literal interpretation of Biblical scripture. Through the experiences of five very normal, very Christian, very American families, we discover how people of faith handle, or sometimes tragically fail to handle, having a gay child. Informed by such respected voices as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard’ Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Reverend Jimmy Creech, according to production notes, the film offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity.
