Keene; Reverend Irene Monroe.
Brilliantly reconciles homosexuality and Biblical scripture, and reveals that religious anti-gay bias is based almost solely upon a misinterpretation of the Bible. Through the experiences of five very normal, Christian, American familes - including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson - discover how people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child or family member.
DVD, NTSC; widescreen presentation; Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo.
I highly recommend this documentary for every person of every faith to watch.
It includes Former Speaker of the US House of Representatives Dick Gephardt and his daughter, Christy, who is a lesbian. It also includes an interview with the first openly gay bishop in the worldwide Episcopal Church, Gene Robinson, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who was instrumental in ending Apartheid in South Africa.
