Homosexuality is a sin, and it is because the bible says so. But have we been conditioned to hold the beliefs by the church? And it really has been the church, it’s the place where prodigious was born, nurtured and has been promoted.
For the Bible Tells Me So looks at the conflict between Christianity and being gay or lesbian and whether homosexuality is a choice.
We also meet some Christian families who each have a gay child. The parents openly discuss their children during childhood, and their reactions to their child coming out. The stories told by these parents and their adult children alternate with talking heads – Protestant and Jewish theologians – and with film clips of fundamentalist preachers and pundits and news clips of people in the street.
