Because God tells me so (2007)

I am not gonna review this fine documentary on how the fundamentalist christians use the bible for gaybashing, but I am going to mention something I learned from it:

The same bible passage that says "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female. It is an abomination." also says that it is an abomination eat shellfish, to wear garments of mixed fabrics and working on the sabbath. Still, a lot of people use that quote literally. This can only mean: Either they dont know what the passage really means because they are so busy obeying, they do not really understand any of it but their pastor tells them too or they are too caught up in their hate that they dont care. So much for a loving God.

My favorite little tidbit though, how horrible the content may be, was part of a deaththreat sent to the first openly gay Bishop in the Lutheran church and it tells me quite a bit of the person that wrote it.

Death to the faggits!

  1. I guess I shouldn't see this movie because it will make me angry.

  2. Well, my girlfriend got so upset at times that I had to ask her to keep calm because she was shouting... :)

    But the documentary is also about Christian families with gay children and the way they handled the situation, which is a bit more warmer than the preachers...
