Film Screening of 1946

Join us for a second film screening of 1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted Culturea feature documentary about the origins of the anti-gay movement among Christians due to a grave mistranslation of the Bible in 1946.

Website description of the film: It chronicles the discovery of never-before-seen archives at Yale University which unveil astonishing new revelations, and casts significant doubt on any biblical basis for LGBTQIA+ prejudice. Featuring commentary from prominent scholars as well as opposing pastors, including the personal stories of the film’s creators, 1946 is at once challenging, enlightening, and inspiring. While other documentaries have been successful in their attempt to treat the symptom of homophobia in the church, 1946 is working to diagnose and treat the disease – Biblical Literalism.

Common Thread is eager to host another film screening, followed by what is sure to be another good discussion. Join us!
