For the Bible tells me so ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This documentary tells the stories of five Christian families coming to terms with their gay and lesbian children, in an America where thanks to social forces clashing, the very atmosphere seems filled with hatred, old-fashioned prejudice, and fear of the other. Amidst scholars parsing the Old and New Testaments, there are copious archival photographs, illustrations of biblical scenes, and a thoughtful and constructive exploration of the need for spirituality and family relationships in human life. The irony, of course, is that the people who would benefit most from an encounter with the film--fundamentalists, gay bashers, leaders of the ex-gay movement, and the like--are the folks least likely to see it or be open to its message of tolerance
