Why is the Gospel of Love Dividing America? Filmmaker and follower Dan Merchant donned his Bumpersticker Man suit and set out across America in this funny and moving look at the collision of faith and culture.
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.

As a Christian, this movie was one of the best messages that anyone who claims to be a Christian could hear. I have always thought of myself as a compassionate person, but Dan Merchant hit the nail on the head with his objective portrayal of what the Culture Wars today need to come to a healthy conclusion. As God says in the OT.."If MY PEOPLE, who are called by my name will humble themselves..... The answer is not to beat people over the head with the truth, but to love them unconditionally. This is the first time, as a conservative believer, that I can look at people who I thought I despised, like Al Franken or Bill Maher, and understand where they are coming from, and not only that but want to engage them in love. This movie gives the church an ear shattering answer from God to the question "What would Jesus do?"
