“For the Bible Tells Me So” introduces you to five ordinary Christian families and shows how these people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child or family member. Intermingled with these five stories, religious leaders and scholars explore how the Bible has been used and misused in response to homosexuality, as well as describe the impact that biblical misinterpretation has had on individuals and families. The film’s intent is to offer healing, clarity, and understanding to anyone affected by this issue – in other words, everyone.
