I watched several movies over the weekend, from the somewhat underwhelming “Sweeney Todd” to the pensive “Darjeeling Limited”. And one good documentary.
“For The Bible Tells Me So” addressed the fallacy of the religious to use the bible as a tool to oppress the homosexual population. The film might have better if it followed fewer subjects (it tells too many stories at once) but it covered its topic well. It also helps that I firmly disagree with most of the “rules” in the book written by men – men who were writing about their times and their desires. I just don’t understand who people can cling to an old book as the truth of the universe rather than think for themselves. Fear, I suppose. It’s sad.
