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," a world premiere at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival that was most recently honored with Audience Awards at the Seattle and Provincetown International Film Festivals. Through the experiences of five Christian 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. "For the Bible Tells Me So" offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity.
