The worst documentary I've ever seen
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't get what this documentary is trying to do. If this is supposed to be about how politics and religion have combined over the years, it isn't. It doesn't do a good job in the beginning and then quits on that subject about halfway through. If it's supposed to be a conversion tool it fails on that as well and it also fails on how Christianity saved President Bush.

Overall, it keeps distracting itself and doesn't even end with any sense of a point being made.

If I had to pick a scene that best illustrates my point, it's the interview with Jerry Falwell about how abortion caused the September 11th attacks which is followed closely by a wondrous fanfare over the premature MISSION ACCOMPLISHED banner for the war in Iraq. Then, the end credits. See? No sense of direction whatsoever. Avoid this.
