For The Bible Tells Me So (Film)

Sunday, January 9th at 10:35am
Cost: FREE

All are welcome to join us for a free viewing of the award-winning documentary, “For the Bible Tells Me So.” This film explores the intersection between faith and homosexuality in powerful ways.

Can the love between two people ever be an abomination? Is the chasm separating gays and lesbians and Christianity too wide to cross? Is the Bible an excuse to hate?
Through the experiences of five very normal, very Christian, very American families - including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson - we discover how insightful people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child. Informed by such respected voices as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard's Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Reverend Jimmy Creech, “For the Bible Tells Me So” offers healing, clarity, and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual orientation.

“For the Bible Tells Me So” has won many awards, including the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Outfest Los Angeles, Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and the HBO Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Provincetown International Film Festival.
