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.
The abuse, the shame, the killings, the hate...most will say it is because the Bible tells us so. In this captivating documentary, researchers, biblical scholars and phsychiatrists examine the roots of popular misunderstandings and teachings of homosexuality and the Bible. Both informative and enlightening, not only for those who have suffered the emotional and mental struggles of suppression from our families, but also for those who were taught to believe the Bible is a tool for hatred. Emotional, heart-wrenching, eye-opening and hand-tossed with some laughter makes for the BIBLE tells me so a successful communication tool and touches viewers with glimpses into our own personal lives.
Quoted byDavid Poteat: "I had good kids. We had one of each sex. When my kids were growing up I said God, please don't let my son grow up to be a faggot and my daughter, a slut. And he did not. He did not do that. He reversed it."
