FILM SYNOPSIS

Can the love between two people ever be an abomination? Is the chasm
separating gays and lesbians and Christianity too wide to cross? Is the
Bible an excuse to hate?

Through the experiences of five very normal, very Christian, very
American families -- including those of former House Majority Leader
Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson -- we discover how
insightful people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child.
Informed by such respected voices as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard's
Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Reverend Jimmy Creech,
FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO offers healing, clarity and understanding to
anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity.
