Lord Save Us
Why is the Gospel of Love Dividing America?
The humorous, provocative and moving examination of the Culture Wars and faith in America. Featuring interviews from all sides of the issues, the film is a balanced, challenging and entertaining foray into the most divisive and difficult topics in our culture. Includes interviews with Al Franken, Sen. Rick Santorum, Dr. Tony Campolo, Sister Mary Timothy, Michael Reagan, Ron Luce as well as rousing man-on-the-street interviews with director Dan Merchant dressed as Bumpersticker Man, a wild Culture Wars game show pits a Liberal Media Elite team against a team of Young Conservatives and a powerful "reverse Confession Booth" at a Gay Pride event provides unexpected emotion
The guy's got a point. The dialogue in America around religion, particularly that surrounding Evangelicals, has become extremely divisive. I liked that the filmmaker, an Evangelical Christian himself, could admit both his loyalty to the church, but also his disappointment and sorrow over her past sins. His light-hearted attitude toward the material keeps the film engaging, and in the final third of the film, Merchant does well to chart a compassionate course for Evangelicals in the future.
As a Christian, this is one of the most profound,moving and motivational films I've ever seen. It takes awhile to realize that this isn't actually a hit piece out to make Christians look like idiots, but rather a message to remind us who Jesus was and what He did. A must for all believers.
