The divisively contested relationship between divine scripture and homosexuality is at the center of For the Bible Tells Me So, a moving examination of how people of faith struggle to reconcile sexual orientation with the word of God as it’s preached by organized religion.

The film’s focus is on how average church-going American families persist in belief when faced with intolerance justified in a literal reading of the Old Testament. Among those who tell their stories are the Rev. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, and Chrissie Gephardt, the daughter of former Sen. Dick Gephardt. Interspersed among the personal testimonies are appearances by an array of theologians, priests, ministers, and rabbis, who demonstrate with passion and compassion how believers in the 21st century can live by the Book. (97 mins., video)

On November 14, join us before the film (5:30-7 PM) in the café for Network Columbus, a monthly networking event for gay, lesbian, and transgendered professionals, business principals, and colleagues, and straight and allied friends and partners.
