For the Bible Tells Me So

This is a great documentary on fundamentalists. It covers all religions: Catholics, Lutherans, Baptists. It's about them and their views on homosexuality. It's very interesting. I highly recommend it. For those of you that have Netflix, you can find it on there.

Is it on instant? (I would look myself, but my wii needs to be hooked up and I can't move the things necessary to do that)

Yes, it's on instant. I scrolled past it just a couple of days ago and I would have watched it except I wasn't in the mood for a documentary.

Sign into the website. I check there before bothering with the Wii, it's so much faster. You can also add to the Instant Queue instead of searching on the Wii. :)

Aha that's true I just didn't feel like bothering with trying to remember the account info *blush* I'll be so happy to get my wii set up here and then I can watch all sorts of crazy documentaries haha.

It's not available on Canadian Netflix, because nothing good ever is. I tried to find a YouTube link but all I could find was those fake ones. If anyone finds it online could you please post a link?

Ooh I saw this last year and thought it was excellent.

ETA: I think we saw it on PBS or one of the movie channels like IFC. In any case, it's worth checking searchable TV listings for it if you can't get it through Netflix or a library.

I just watched it, and as everyone said, it was great. I especially liked different how they covered the different ways somebody could interpret the Bible passages. It was interesting. Thanks for the recommendation!

I managed to find it on Megaupload, download it and watch it. Here are my thoughts:

-Jake's parents are amazing.

-I felt sorry that Anna's mother only changed her tune because of a horrible tragedy

-I've been a Gene Robinson fan since I first heard about him a few years ago. Has anyone read his book?

-Also the cartoon was great, This can be found at any public or university library "except at Bob Jones University" classic.

I'm glad others have enjoyed it. It's one of the better documentaries I've seen in awhile. And it says all the stuff I wish I could say, but can't put in words when I'm debating with some ignorant person about homosexuality and the church.

Gene is amazing. I really admire him after seeing this. One of my favorite pastors growing up was a homosexual man. Unfortunately someone "forced him out of the closet" and the bishop asked him to leave the church. A couple years after that though, the ELCA finally allowed homosexual ministers. I wish it could've happened before he lost his job.

Oh. I'm confused I thought he was still an Anglican bishop. I know the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, didn't invite him to the Lambeth Conferences but he is still a bishop. Rowan, despite marrying William and Catherine, can be a bit of a tool. (I obviously don't know him. It's just my opinion based on statements of his etc.)

It was a wonderful documentary and I was in tears at the end. My dad actually met Gene Robinson a few times and admires him greatly. It's just so heartbreaking that people would go to all this effort to promote hatred and cruelty. I was reminded of that seeing the Chick-Fil-A debacle this summer, and I thought of it while watching this. Hopefully the tide is turning - I think we've come quite far even in the five years since the documentary was made.

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
