The award-winning documentary "For the Bible Tells Me So," which examines the way a few Bible verses have been misinterpreted and misused to oppress and harm youth and adults in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, & Queer community will be shown at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15, at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva, 110 S. Second St., Geneva.

This film features stories of families struggling with rejection of gay members. It also includes statements by clergy and religious leaders explaining the history of religious intolerance of gays and how it can change.

The film is part of the free monthly third-Friday Film programs which are sponsored by the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva. The public is encouraged to register at uusg.org/friday-flicks/ to receive email notices of future programs.

The Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva, established in 1842 and the oldest church in Geneva, is a diverse, welcoming community that endeavors to make its covenant a living reality. We provide religious education and opportunities for spiritual growth. Visit uusg.org.
