St. Jerome’s teaches: It’s not about judgment

“It is not the judgments of men that open or shut the gates of heaven.” – St. Jerome

(Tulsa, OK) In the documentary For the Bible Tells Me So, a thesis of the film is that much of the church's homophobia represents a misreading of scripture, a denial of science, and an embrace of quack psychology. The film calls for love, acceptance, and inclusion.

St. Jerome Parish of Tulsa invites all to come together for “The Bible, Homosexuality, and Catholicism,” an event where people may experience real stories from others who have wrestled with family, faith, ministry and relationships complicated by issues of sexual orientation; stories of doubt, pain, healing and acceptance told in a forum that is respectful and open to all.

The documentary film For the Bible Tells Me So will also be shown.

The event will be Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013 10am-2:30pm at St. Jerome Parish of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion, located at 205 W. King, Tulsa, OK 74106.

All are welcome. Doors will open at 9:15 am. Admission is free. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to so that enough food is on hand (or call 918-582-3088).

An examination of Roman Catholic teaching will be reviewed, with a compassionate alternative perspective presented.

Please call (918) 582-3088 if you have any questions about the event.
