“For the Bible Tells Me So”
Date(s) - 01/26/2018
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
On Friday, January 26, at 7 pm, the Harvard UU Senior High Youth Group will be hosting a screening of For the Bible Tells Me So, with discussion and snacks to follow. We invite all who are able to attend to join us for insight into the intersection between conservative Christianity and homosexual orientation.
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.
