Americans United for Separation of Church & State Orange County Chapter

AU-OC Presents: Flicks for Thought

For The Bible Tells Me So
Discussion Facilitated by Film Producer Robin Voss

Saturday, August 17th at 1:45 pm

Irvine Ranch Water District Community Room 
15500 Sand Canyon Ave, Irvine, CA

This is an American documentary film directed by Daniel G. Karslake about homosexuality and its perceived conflict with Christianity, as well as various interpretations of what the Bible says about same-sex sexuality. Many Christians believe that homosexuality is condemned by the Bible and those in the Religious Right often argue that our secular laws should be based on this “fact.” This documentary challenges this interpretation of the Bible, and explores the way several families with Christian parents and gay children (many of whom, like Bishop V. Gene Robinson, are Christians as well) have dealt with the supposed conflict between their faith and homosexuality.

Following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, “For the Bible Tells Me So” went on to win a number of prestigious festival awards including the Katherine Bryan Edwards Human Rights Prize at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, and the Best Documentary Audience Awards at the Seattle International Film Festival, the Provincetown International Film Festival, Outfest: The Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, the Milwaukee International Film Festival, and a number of others.

Please join us for this important film and discussion on the religious right and their views of our secular society.

Doors open at 1:15. Seating is on a first come, first seated basis.
