A documentary that challenges biblical scriptures which seem to condemn homosexuality, For the Bible Tells Me So asserts that antigay sentiment by religious fundamentalists is based on writings that are not only taken out of context, but badly translated as well. (Oops!) Bible also looks at several religious families and their attempts to reconcile having a homosexual relative, among them former presidential candidate Dick Gephardt, who discusses his concerns about his lesbian daughter (not her going to hell so much as her being the victim of a hate crime). Thoughtful and insightful, For the Bible Tells Me So deals in facts, not emotions, eliminating the inflammatory rhetoric that has kept the two sides apart for so long. (Now if we could only burn all those oh-so-witty "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" protest signs.) 8:30 p.m. Domy Books, 1709 Westheimer.
