This video is a short excerpt from the documentary The Bible Tells Me So directed by Daniel G. Karslake.
Biblical Literalism has been used against civil rights, female equality or moral fortitude, now it is used by some in an often violent campaign against homosexuality, in contradiction to the ultimate virtue of what it means be one who follows God.

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.
