Can the love between two people ever be an abomination? Is the chasm separating homosexuals and Christianity too wide to cross? How can the Bible be used to justify hate? These are the questions at the heart of Daniel Karslake s FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO. 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 people of faith handle, or sometimes tragically fail to handle, 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 identity. - - Honours - - 2007 Sundance Film Festival Nominee, Grand Jury Prize Seattle International Film Festival Audience Award For Best Documentary Full Frame Documentary Film Festival Kathleen Bryan Edwards Award For Human Rights Provincetown International Film Festival HBO Audience Award For Best Documentary Outfest Los Angeles Audience Award For Best Documentary Milwaukee International Film Festival Audience Award For Best Documentary Best Director For Documentary Image Out: The Rochester Gay And Lesbian Film Festival Audience Award For Best Documentary Reel Pride: Fresno Gay And Lesbian Film Festival Audience Award For Best Documentary Tampa International Gay And Lesbian Film Festival Grand Jury Prize For Best Documentary

Also featured are comments by people as varied as Bishop Tutu, conservative anti-gay activist Anita Bryant, and gay Bishop Gene Robinson,who was sent death-threats. The film admirably does try to at least show the differing points of view. A cartoon segment about half way through the film attempts to briefly tell of the scientific findings of recent research regarding homosexuality,explaining that being gay is not a choice,as people once thought.Given the sometimes grim nature of the topic, I was surprised that there were parts of this film that were entertaining as well as informative.
Each of the five families tell their story in a very personal way,and of their varying degrees of acceptance (or not) of their gay children. There are numerous archival news reel clips,images,television talk shows or radio broadcasts on the topic of homosexuality ,and christianity, intercut with the family stories.
I would highly recommend this DVD to any schoolteacher,guidance counsellor or parent. Education is the answer to the hatred,& this film will do a lot of good in the years ahead,hopefully. Outstanding and well-researched.
I would recommend this beautiful handling of reconciling faith & sexuality to anyone with similar struggles and for anyone with a different viewpoint who wishes to be open and caring enough to listen to another view point.
I wish I had watched this years ago and not judged myself and others.
If anyone would like a starting point on this subject matter you cannot go wrong, I think that this documentary will (and has) helped countless parents and families come to terms with the news that someone they know is gay.
I cannot say anything about this documentary that encapsulates its success. Informative, well shot and the editing made it very easy to follow.
A highly suggested purchase.
The film chiefly followes the lives of christian families one of whose children is gay, the effect that their 'coming out' had on the relationships within the family, and on the lives of the son or daughter. The terrible harm done by not accepting each person for who they are is clearly shown. I found the last part of the film really moving as it demonstrates how individuals and the church can move forward in accepting and even celebrating diversity.
