1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted A Culture


Rocky Reccio, 2022, USA, 91 min.

“My Christian friends rejected me because I am Gay. My Gay friends were angry with me for being a Christian.” So says Ed Oxford, a Gay theologian and researcher in how the Bible has been weaponized against LGBT people. Kathy Baldock is a straight, white mother of two who went beyond asking the hard questions about Christianity’s historical culture of the condemnation of LGBT people. She researched the history of the oppression of LGBT lives and came out as a staunch advocate for LGBT Christianity. Kathy and Ed discover that the first time that homosexual is named in the bible was in 1946. They break it down and pull apart the sources of the “clobber passages” that have been used to condemn LGBT people. Filmmaker and pastor’s kid Sharon “Rocky” Roggio was raised in the church and eventually left after coming out as a Lesbian. She delves into the 1946 decision while weaving the academic with the very personal struggle that she and other LGBT Christians have managed for their entire lives. (Sunny Hall)
