FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO – O explorare a intersectării religiei cu homosexualitatea în societatea contemporană din Statele Unite, şi a felului în care mişcarea religioasă de dreapta americană foloseşte propriile sale interpretări ale citatelor din Biblie pentru a justifica stigmatizarea comunităţii gay. **(documentary in English w. Spanish subtitles)
We meet five Christian families, each with a gay or lesbian child. Parents talk about their marriages and church-going, their children’s childhood and coming 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 discuss scripture and biblical scholarship. 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. The families call for love.
