Storyline

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.

Wishy-Washy
22 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am generally entertained by the apologetic religious films; however, this was bland and nearly as uninteresting as possible. The narrator is an evangelical Christian, who completely disregarded everything in the Old Testament and Jesus' references to its inherent validity.

The political overtones are tired and unimaginative. It would've been more interesting if there were some developments here. The narrator just kind of says, "Bush is a vocal exponent of Christianity; he started a few wars. Bah! No biggie."

This is a prime example of a Christian who is civil, not because of his religion; but in spite of it. Watch it if you're into these kinds of things--if not, skip it.
