Plot Outline:

This documentary explores the complicated intersection of homosexuality and the Bible. It tackles the often-misinterpreted biblical verses that seem to condemn homosexuality and sheds light on some ways people have reconciled their sexuality and their faith. Includes dynamic interviews with four very different families, each of whom had their faith tested when they learned one of their children was gay, and shows how differently each of their stories turned out -- in ways that may surprise you.

Revealing

This film almost made me cry multiple times because there were elements here that were all too familiar before I came out: the feelings of sadness, anger, regret, loneliness, fear, and most of all, unconditional love and acceptance. One of the many factors I love about this film is that it manages to analyze those certain (questionable) passages from the Bible regarding homosexuality, not saying that the Bible is bad or evil, but how people use it as a weapon in order to justify their own prejudice and hatred of various types of people, specifically homosexuals. I like that those excerpts were taken from historical and current point of views, both by men and women of religion and science, gay, straight people and everything inbetween. What all of it comes down to is that the analysis come...
