For the Bible Tells Me So
Wednesday, 15 August at The United Church at 7 PM
This 2007 documentary is an exploration of the intersection between religion and homosexuality in the U.S. Includes interviews with Gene Robinson and his family along with four other families who must confront what it means to be in gay in the church. Also explores how the religious right has used its interpretation of the Bible to stigmatize the gay community. Called a “secular sermon” in a NY Times review, this educational film strives to demonstrate that homosexuality is a genetic predisposition, not a lifestyle choice and that those who quote Leviticus to justify their animosity are guilty not just of intolerance but also of selective piety.
