Point-of-view documentaries are rife in the marketplace; Daniel Karslake’s “For the Bible Tells Me So” mixes media to examine the side of five Christian families in the U.S. who happen to be gay. What do their religions say? A lot of things that clash and conflict, as it turns out. The love of parents for their children is a constant, and the hypocrisy of church fathers is as well. Alternately jaunty and infuriating, Karslake’s accomplishment is making an invested perspective more than a one-sided slam at the doctrinaire and defensive who take another side of the issue. 97m. 35mm.
