"Eloquent."  - Hollywood Reporter

"Unforgettable."  - Documentary Magazine

"Potent. A wake-up call that the LGBTQ community is under fierce attack."  -

"In this vital, authentic follow-up to For the Bible Tells Me So, filmmaker Daniel Karslake returns a decade later to the religious right, embittered by the Supreme Court's Obergefell decision and emboldened by the rise of Trump. Heartbreaking - and inspirational."  -The Advocate

"Emotional and revealing. It's obvious that For They Know Not What They Do - and For The Bible Tells Me So, for that matter - is necessary viewing. And considering far-too-many states still allow conversion therapy, the religious right's continuing efforts to prevent LGBTQ+ equality, and the ongoing issue of LGBTQ+ youth suicide, it couldn't come at a better time. Like a salve, or a balm in Gilead perhaps, the film has the potential to heal open wounds in some families as a manual of how to love - not just in spite of, but because of."  - Out Magazine

"One of the best crafted documentaries I have ever seen and it succinctly covers a lot of ground with its stories of religion and being gay. The movie weaves together several tales of coming out to a religious family and shares the highs and some of the lows that will ripe your heart out. A lot of documentaries have great stories to tell and we forgive them for inferior production qualities. But this movie hits the mark on every level - from point of view to cinematography. This should be a contender for Best Documentary at the Oscars. It's that good."  -

"The message and stories in For They Know Not What They Do feel more timely than ever. No matter how hard to watch, Karslake's documentary shows a template for how to breach conversations about faith, sexuality, and gender identity in open-hearted ways."  - Remezcla

"9 out of 10 stars. By turns full of hope and full of heartbreak. It makes a case for acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community, particularly the younger people. Daniel Karslake and writer/editor Nancy Kennedy are excellent storytellers, and I'm forever grateful to them and the families who participated for hopefully helping the world take a step in the right direction, away from discrimination and towards equality."  - Film Threat

"Often moving, surprisingly hopeful. A very good film that needs to be seen and shown to families who don't know what to do and to kids who are afraid. The film is a ray of hope for everyone and should be seen."  - Unseen Films

"Daniel Karslake's extraordinary new documentary, named after the final words of Jesus, is a four-part examination of one of the most shameful and contentious parts of modern Christian theology: institutionalized homophobia. He pulls no punches."  - The Young Folks
