In Austin, Texas, the very "buckle of the Bible belt," friends of Soulforce turn their sanctuary into a courtroom for one last time. Before a judge and a jury, the anti-gay charges are presented by more than a dozen public figures who have attacked God's gay children in television specials and on nationally distributed video tapes.
"If church leaders can't decide about us," says Dr. Mel White, Producer of the "Verdict" video, "then we'll decide about ourselves."
"When this trial ends," Dr. White adds, "we hope viewers will join us in saying proudly: 'Never again will we allow our sanctuaries to become courtrooms. No longer will we sit still while our lives and loves are studied and debated as though we weren't even in the room. Our rights are no longer up for grabs. It's settled at last.'"
The most recent biblical, medical, psychiatric, psychological, and scientific evidence is presented to combat the myths and lies often used against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons by anti-gay religious leaders and institutions. Come and hear the evidence and decide for yourself!
