Karslake reveals ways Scripture has been used to discriminate against homoexuality, and shows how inaccurate interpretations of the Bible cause widespread despair and the destruction of lives.

Excessivamente convencional em sua estrutura e contendo sua parcela de graves tropeços (a seqüência em animação), este filme ainda assim merece aplausos pela eloqüência de seus entrevistados, pelo teor de sua mensagem e pela paixão com que a defende.
| Original Score: 4/5

One message rings clear throughout the occasionally muddled but always emotionally sweeping film: A true abomination is twisting the words of Scripture to match bigotry.

A thoughtful look at the complicated relationship between Christianity and homosexuality.

Progressive clergy provide enough historical context to neutralize the handful of Bible verses prohibiting homosexual acts, but Karslake never confronts the broader issues of sexuality and procreation that bedevil even moderate Christians.
December 12, 2007
The film offers proof that religion and homosexuality need not be mutually exclusive: Good Christians can love and accept their gay brothers and sisters, and gay people can still be religious.

Daniel 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.

A brisk, entertaining and even moving exploration of the sometimes frayed intersection where Christianity meets homosexuality.
October 20, 2007
Could hardly be called even-handed, and it's certainly repetitive, but despite its failings it's still worth seeing--as so often, especially by those who probably won't.

Wallner's journey to acceptance, not the movie's slight forays into theology, will be what you remember about For the Bible Tells Me So. It's a powerful, positive film.

Its main surprise is the compassion shown toward everyone, on all sides of the debate. It does not vilify those who vilify gays.
