CGiii Comment

What an absolute nonsense this turned out to be!

A mistranslation?!? What a load of was a deliberate act of devout homophobia. The church is homophobic, plain and simple. LGBT christians are oxymorons - why belong to an institution that not only condemns but despises you!?!

Basically, this reductive and redemptive film becomes more like a recruit drive for would-be LGBT christians. It certainly does leave a very sour taste in the mouth, listening to these brain-washed disciples pontificate over 'this and that' without the faintest possibility of change.

Bless them...for they know not what they are talking about...delusional deniers with their heads firmly stuck in their heavenly clouds.

"A documentary film that chronicles how the misuse of a single word changed the course of modern history."

Christianity’s negative attitude towards the gay community is often justified by the prohibitions in a small number of familiar Biblical texts. This moving and important documentary explores the personal stories of LGBTQIA+ people and their allies who have used sophisticated Bible scholarship and translation to uncover the revelation that the first time the word homosexual was included in the Bible was 1946. The implications of this, along with the research that led to it, are vividly and passionately explored in this warm and moving documentary, which occasionally resembles a detective thriller. For Christians and non-Christians alike, this is a powerful indictment of religion-inspired prejudice and an impassioned portrait of activists working to change hearts and minds in the church and beyond.
