...For the Bible Tells Me So (2007)

For the Bible Tells Me So is a heartfelt documentary (with a comical nod to Michael Moore's Farenheit 9/11) about Christians that have (or have had) adult gay family members and how they have (or have not) overcome feelings of homophobia. The film is poignant and forthright and a must-see for all despite it's us against them stance on biblical interpretation; fundamentalists will just rant how the interpretation presented in the film is wrong and they are right. Despite that flaw, it shines when detailing the hypocrisy of the church's love thy neighbor mantra and the humanity of the profiled families.
