FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO weaves together stories on the national political stage and in the homes of four families caught in the crossfire to show how both church and state distort doctrine to justify continued resistance to LGBTQ2+ equality.

Equal parts tear-jerking and affirming, this update of his award-winning 2007 feature FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO (Grand Jury Prize, Sundance; Audience Award for Best Documentary; SIFF), documentarian Daniel Karslake summarizes the last twelve years of conservative Christian efforts to undermine LGBTQ+ rights.
