With God on Our Side… is an excessive title about Christian church fundamentalism and how, like the Taliban, religious groups feel a God given right to institute a society of specific religious beliefs that not everyone shares. It contains basic information on several waves of fear driven panic held by evangelicals during hard and trying times and how ultimately the severe Taliban style restrictions fail to produce the intended results. It touches on past presidents including GWB, Reagan, Nixon and other conservatives who the evangelicals had wanted to be their political saviors that would institute sweeping Taliban style changes on the American public. It should be obvious from the founding fathers not stating Christianity was the national religion that they felt that religion had meaning only to the individual. Relatively neutral in presentation one could say it was pro evangelical and one could also say it was anti-evangelicals for putting such wild eyed fundamentalists on the screen shouting for clamping down on sin. The special features tended to be anti-evangelical interviews.
