In Honor of Gay Pride Month,
Joe Ercolino Hosts:
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO
Sunday, June 17, 2012
Through the experiences of five very normal, very Christian, very American families — including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson — we discover how insightful people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child. Informed by such respected voices as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard’s Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Reverend Jimmy Creech, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity.
“Daniel G. Karslake’s remarkable documentary boldly takes on a loaded topic — Christianity and homosexuality — and examines it both intellectually and emotionally; the result may well leave you blinking away a few tears.” – Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times
“Enlightening, heart-wrenching and uplifting. Grade: A- !” -Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
“Heartfelt and provocative…moving and rewardingly intimate. For Christian audiences, the film will prove most valuable in encouraging them to consider their beliefs in a spirit of serious examination rather than mindless acceptance, and to recognize how matters of faith can be easily co-opted by politics.” – Justin Chang, Variety
A loving discussion will follow.
