For the Bible Tells Me So

  • Published 2 years ago

We meet five Christian families, each with a gay son or lesbian. Parents talk about their marriages and go to church, the childhood of their children and go out, their reactions and changes over time.

The stories told by these nine parents and four adult children alternate with talking heads – Protestant and Jewish theologians – and with film clips of fundamentalist preachers and pundits and news clips of people in the street.

They talk about the scriptures and biblical studies. A thesis of the film is that much of Christianity’s homophobia represents a misreading of scripture, a denial of science, and an embrace of quack psychology. Families call for love.
