“1946: The Mistranslation that Shifted Culture”: preview and description and funding pitch from producers (concerns a Biblical translation that caused evangelical Christianity to be focused on homosexuality)

 

Cathedral of Hope, UCC, Dallas, 2018

There is a film in development named “1946: The Mistranslation that Shifted Culture”, to be directed by Sharon “Rocky” Roggio, and produced by Daniel Karslake.  This is the official site so far, and this is the Facebook page. There is also a second official site to advertise the film. 

The film will maintain that the word “homosexual” as such did not appear in editions of the Bible until February 1946, the Revised Standard Version, in 1 Corinthians Chapter 6.

It then maintains that the pervasive anti-gay culture that persisted until Stonewall and then gradually improved was instigated by this translation change.

The film website has a donation page.  I don’t know it is using indiegogo or gofundme.
