Rotterdam Community Center Performance Hall

705 Curry Road in Rotterdam, New York

On Monday, June 24, the Rotterdam Community Center in collaboration with Schenectady Clergy Against Hate will host a public screening of the documentary film “1946: The Mistranslation that Shifted a Culture.” The film uncovers the mistranslation that erroneously led to the word “homosexual” being included in the Bible. By the time that the error was identified, it was too late. Subsequent translations included the word in additional verses, resulting in Holy Scriptures being weaponized against the LGBTQ community. For details about the film, visit www.1946TheMovie.com. The screening will be followed by a brief panel discussion during which audience members will be invited to ask questions of area clergy members. This gathering is free to all who are interested as we celebrate Pride Month at the Rotterdam Community Center!
