Love people, love up anything. This type of documentary is very interesting because it comes from and superimposed on those who translate the Bible in their own way, everything condemning homosexuality, an abomination. The world needs information and destruction of common sense which, they (religious-capitalists who were shown in the documentary), these traditionalists - shit, that shit do not def... read more

Description: 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? Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Seattle International Film Festival, Dan Karslake's provocative, entertaining documentary brilliantly reconciles ... (more)

"Culprit: Ed Gonzalez "The point that the homophobic right is picking and choosing which parts of the Bible to follow, and which verses to look at in the context in which they were written, is both terribly familiar and rudimentarily argued." 2/4 Date: September 30, 2007"

"An exploration of the intersection between religion and homosexuality in the U.S. and how the religious right has used its interpretation of the Bible to stigmatize the gay community. This docu' shows true examples of families who have dealt with the conflict of their religious (Christian) beliefs that homosexuality is wrong.. and having a gay child. Thought-provoking & quite sad in parts."

"For the Bible Tells Me So is an insightful documentary about how Christian society preaches the notion of homosexuality being unnatural and immoral. Though I do not exactly agree with all of its points, it does a great job at capturing a crucial (and unfortunate) part of American culture today. "

“Love people, love up anything. This type of documentary is very interesting because it comes from and superimposed on those who translate the Bible in their own way, everything condemning homosexuality, an abomination. The world needs information and destruction of common sense which, they (religious-capitalists who were shown in the documentary), these traditionalists - shit, that shit do not defend unless the millions who make up the poor people without structure psychological or think enough to say “no” - are words of God. I believe even if I don’t believe in God, all my soul that God does not kill, judge, condemn you for your color, religion, sex or sexuality.” read more

" Synopsis: Dan Karslake's provocative, entertaining documentary brilliantly reconciles homosexuality and Biblical scripture, and in the process reveals that Church-sanctioned anti-gay bias is based almost solely upon a significant (and often malicious) misinterpretation of the Bible. The trailer: "
