Christian Response to Homosexuality Explored by Film... The documentary film For the Bible Tells Me So will be shown on campus four times this weekend. This film explores the intersections between Christianity and homosexuality through the stories of five Christian families who have gay children, including the families of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson. The film will be shown on Friday, March 14, at 7 p.m. in Alumni Hall, followed by an educational panel, and at 10 p.m. in Wallenberg Auditorium. On Saturday, March 15, it will be repeated at 7 and 10 p.m. in Wallenberg Auditorium. The screenings, sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign and the several Gustavus organizations—Queers and Allies, Campus Activities Board, the Chaplains' Office, and the Diversity Center—are open to the public without charge.
    (Note: While only the 7 p.m. showing on Friday in Alumni Hall includes a formal educational panel, facilitators from the Human Rights Campaign, the Gustavus Chaplains' Office, and Gustavus Queers and Allies will be present at the other three showings to take questions or comments. Off-campus movie-goers are welcome at any of the four showings but are encouraged to attend the early screening on Friday in Alumni Hall if possible, as the Alumni Hall venue is accommodating of a larger crowd, and as that showing includes the educational panel. This film is recommended for an audience of high school age or older—if you have questions regarding content or audience maturity, please contact the Gustavus Chaplains' Office at 507-933-7446.) To find out more about the movie, visit the For the Bible Tells Me So website (http://www.forthebibletellsmeso.org).

The performance is set for Palm Sunday, which opens the week of Jesus' Passion. Tickets are $10 in advance at Swedish Kontur Imports in St. Peter and $12 at the door.
