for the BIBLE tells me so

A film that touches hearts.
A film that changes minds.

Does God really condemn loving homosexual relationships? Is the chasm separating Christianity from gays and lesbians too wide to cross? It the Bible an excuse to hate? These questions and more are answered in this award-winning documentary, which brilliantly reconciles homosexuality and Biblical scripture – and reveals that religious anti-gay bias is based almost solely upon a misinterpretation of the Bible.

Through the experiences of five very normal, Christian, America families – including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson – we discover how people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child or family member.

Offering healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity, this landmark film “boldly takes on a loaded topic and examines it both intellectually and emotionally; the result may well leave you blinking away a few tears.” (Seattle Times)

“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.”

-Variety

“A shrewd, detailed, eye-opening look at how speciously selective and ahistorical the church condemnation of gays really is.”

–Entertainment Weekly

“A Triumph!… provides a perfect example of how Christians can accept homosexuality without betraying their beliefs…powerful, Recommended.”

–Philadelphia City Paper

“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.”
