1946: How a Mistranslation in the Bible Harmed Our LGBTQIA Siblings

The removal of the LGBTQIA+ person from the sin category is akin to this century’s abolition of racial discrimination and the passing of women’s suffrage.

S2:E28 EPISODE SUMMARY

In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen interviews Rocky Roggio, Director of “1946: the Mistranslation that Shifted a Culture.”

About 1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted Culture

A journey which unveils the mystery of how theology, history, culture, and politics led to a Biblical mistranslation, the man who tried to stop it, and the impassioned academic crusade of the LGBTQIA+ Christian community-driven to discover the truth.

SYNOPSIS

1946 reveals the ground-breaking research of Kathy Baldock, a Christian Conservative LGBTQIA+ activist and Ed Oxford, an LGBTQIA+ theologian, in their quest to, discover what factors ignited the anti-gay movement within American conservative Christians. The filmmaker, Sharon “Rocky” Roggio, started this pursuit in an effort to find common ground, within scripture, for her and her conservative father, Pastor Sal Roggio. What has been discovered along the way stands the chance to profoundly change the language of inclusion and to better the lives of both conservative Christians and the LGBTQIA+ people they love. The removal of the LGBTQIA+ person from the sin category is akin to this century’s abolition of racial discrimination and the passing of women’s suffrage. There are two sides of history to stand on.

C.S. Lewis said, “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”
