"The Bible condemns homosexuality" is a statement that has demonized, ruined and in some cases, destroyed LGBTQ people for decades. Opening modern translations of the Bible seem to confirm that statement... there is the word "homosexual" ... and its context is not good. But.
What if the use of the word was due to a translation mistake?
A new team of filmmakers have undercovered proof that it in fact WAS a mistake.
Their upcoming feature length documentary is called 1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted a Culture. The documentary is a game changer as it exposes a transformational historical finding from the year 1946, which is the year when the word “homosexual” was mistakenly first introduced in the Bible, due to a mistranslation. This mistranslation would go on to shape theology, history, culture, and politics. 1946 sheds a light on how the misuse of the word “homosexual” has led to elevated condemnation of the LGBTQIA+ community, negative social stigma, and discriminatory legislation. The film features an original score by GRAMMY NOMINEE Mary Lambert (featured on Macklemore’s 2014 hit "Same Love").
