God Hates Fags ... NOT!
[Film] We know that the typical City Weekly reader is all about the biblical literalism, but for those few of you willing to open your thinking, take heed. The Sundance 2007 documentary For the Bible Tells Me So -- which allows theologians to explore traditionally anti-gay Scripture verses with a less homophobe-y slant--opens locally today (Friday) at the Tower Theatre. And following the 7 p.m. screening, panelists including First Unitarian Church minister Tom Goldsmith and Holladay United Church pastor Erin Gilmore will explore the issues raised. The Rev. Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church will not be participating, as he is very busy somewhere waving picket signs in the faces of slain soldiers' grieving parents. (Scott Renshaw)
