A First Run Features Release

Can the love between two people ever be an
abomination? Is the chasm separating
homosexuals and Christianity too wide to cross?
How can the Bible be used to justify hate?
These are the questions at the heart of
Daniel Karslake's acclaimed new documentary
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO, opening nationally
this October from First Run Features.

A World Premiere in competition at the
2007 Sundance Film Festival,
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO was most recently
honored with Audience Awards at the Seattle and Provincetown International Film Festivals. This provocative, entertaining film concisely reconciles homosexuality and a literal interpretation of Biblical scripture.

Through the experiences of five very normal, very Christian, very American families -- including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson -- we discover how people of faith handle, or sometimes tragically fail to handle, having a gay child. Informed by such respected voices as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard's Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Reverend Jimmy Creech, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity.
