For the Bible Tells Me So Reviews
Poignant, informative and optimistic, For the Bible Tells Me So is a great watch for just about anybody.
The bigotry sported by Conservative Christians is brought on by their literal interpretation of a few overstated biblical verses - namely how homosexuals are to be 'put to death'.
I'm pleased to see how simple the documentary is, although the content was rather disorganized in its random delivery.
Bishop Desmond Tutu, many others comment on their apologetic stance towards the gay community.
The film contains very few graphic scenes as it briefly explores the 'gay-bashing' phenomena and its defining result on suicide rates.
I'm sure this documentary could help create connections between estranged families who aren't sure how to react to their gay sons or lesbian daughters.
Featuring interviews with Christian families effected by this issue as well as church leaders, this is a powerful film that may not change the mind of the set in their way fundamentalist, but it does go out of the way to show that the bible is not anti-gay.
