The Bible as a Weapon


For the Bible Tells Me So is a 2007 documentary directed by Daniel G. Karslake.  A MetaFilter FPP linked to the entire doc on Google Video.  Over the past couple of days, I watched all 1 hour and 39 minutes and it's extremely good.

For The Bible Tells Me So is about homosexuality and its perceived conflict with religion.  I touched upon these themes over four years ago in God Hates Shrimp.  If you want to upset me, share with me clips of religious leaders using the Bible to promote hatred.  Everyone has their hot buttons, and the use of the Bible as a weapon is one of mine.

I realize it's a lot to ask, but if you have an hour and 39 minutes click here and check out a great doc that puts it all together.  If you're a parent, you likely know the power of unconditional love, and this will strike a chord.

I have no idea what my six year old son or three year old daughter's sexual preference will be, and I'm proud to say it doesn't matter.  The love I have for them, far too strong for words to  adequately describe, is most definitely unconditional.  It is without conditions or limitations.

Here's the trailer for For The Bible Tells Me So.
