13 July 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The film was a refreshing look at Ted Haggard. Living in Europe, I'm not that deep into the whole evangelical thing, but I knew him first from The Root of All Evil, that was made by Richard Dawkins. And I knew the scandal of course. But I didn't know that the aftermath would be like this. I had sort of expected that the church would somehow gloss over it, and that he only had to keep a low profile. (On the other hand they let him back to Colorado after a year and a half.) I could certainly sympathize with him.

Anyway, what I thought was a problem with the documentary was that while on the one side, he was confessing, confessing and confessing. Plus, he was giving a couple of kicks to the church for being very unforgiving. All very well, but what if there was something wrong with the ideals of the church, religion and bible in the first place? Maybe he didn't betray the church so much as he betrayed himself? I would have liked to see some probing into whether or not he had given this some thought, rather than very predictable Christian masochistic repentance. Maybe it's too early for real soul searching, but I couldn't help feeling that he just wanted back in to continue as he had done before.
