onward, Christian soldiers

Englishman Antony Thomas' documentary look at the new wave of right-wing religious evangelism offers a sobering introduction to the unholy alliance between God and politics in 1980s America. With as much detachment as he can muster, Thomas probes the double standards and glaring inconsistencies in the doctrine of those who preach humility while seeking political influence and power, showing how servants of God become slaves to commerce by slowly twisting the true meaning of the Gospels, offering instant hope and easy salvation to the lonely and the lost, the ignorant and confused.

Thomas makes no outright accusations, but his conclusions couldn't be more explicit: the new religious conservatives, in both Church and State, are confusing faith with patriotism and ignorance with bliss. Sophisticated viewers might see it as a joke, but the influence and persistence of the religious Far Right is no laughing matter, and their dogged beliefs give them immunity from criticism or common sense. You don't have to be a freethinker to be disturbed by the implications of this likely to be controversial film.
