Overview

Director Ky Dickens takes on two controversial topics in one film in this documentary about religion and homosexuality. A former sorority girl at Vanderbilt University, Dickens came out of the closet her senior year. She's heard all the Biblical passages implying that being gay is like buying an express ticket to Hell, yet her understanding of the Good Book doesn't necessarily jive with the interpretations of the mainstream religious masses. In this film, Dickens dissects seven passages from both parts of the Christian Biblical canon with the help of noted theologians and members of the gay community.
