For The Bible Tells Me So

Has anyone watched the documentary "For The Bible Tells Me So"? I'm thinking about getting it from the library tomorrow. This is what Flixster says about it: Grounded by the stories of five conservative Christian families, the film explores how the religious right has used its interpretation of the Bible to support its agenda of stigmatizing the gay community and eroding the separation between church and state.

I wish I had heard about this yesterday, since I was at the library today. Oh well, back to the library again tomorrow.

I think it's still on Youtube. That's where I saw it at but that was... two (?) years ago.

From what I remember, it was really good. Then again, I have a special place in my heart for documentaries. So it may just be me.

Maybe i'll check it out too.
Don't you just have to love the libraries? :P

At the end of the day, what matters is not what you have, but who you have become.

You should...

It was a good watch. It raised a lot of good points against the Bible thumpers that use the Bible against us. And it shares 5 stories of children, that are now grown up, and their religious parents. How they came out, how they were received, ect. And one of the kids was that gay bishop Gene Robinson.

Oh, and yes, I love my library. It isn't so great with the selection of gay movies, but it does have a TON of gay books. And some great little surprises like this documentaries.
