‘For The Bible Tells Me So’

Last week I bought the gun. Yesterday I wrote the note. But last night I happened to turn on your show and just knowing that someday I might be able to go back into my church, I threw the gun in the river. My mom never has to know.

This email was the inspiration for a film making it’s debut at the Sundance Film Festival titled “For The Bible Tells Me So“. It delves into the Biblical interpretations that are used to condemn homosexuality, and explores lives that have been shattered by those condemnations. The filmmakers believe their film is inspired by God and I am looking forward to seeing it.

Here’s a excellent article from the Salt Lake Tribune that offers a more in-depth look into the documentary.

  1. This film does sound pretty powerful. I can’t tell you how angry it makes me that religious extremists use the bible in a way that drives LGBT kids to consider suicide. I am not a violent person, but I just want to smack some of those homo-hating religious hypocrites.
