    Very well done, I thought it was able to show both sides of the issue fairly without demonizing individual members of the church

    Excellent film. No wonder why religious fundamentalists are referred to as fundamentalists...

    Great documentary, eye-opening, and thought-provoking. Two very interesting and unsurprising details: the main female pastor that confesses her attraction to women when she was younger, and the main male pastor that wants to spread god's righteousness all over the place that confesses he used to be a sex addict. Why try so vehemently to get rid of those people and things that perhaps remind them of the person in the mirror? Guilt? Unresolved issues? Freud definitely comes to mind, some sexually frustrated people do make good psychopaths... Anyway, it is easy to judge and I'm nobody to judge. Nevertheless, it is somewhat sad to see some of us still blindingly believing in the great illusion. Hasn't there been enough division, guilt, bloodshed, and ignorance? How about as fairly intelligent adults if we embraced our own personal spirituality, peace, common sense, empathy towards others, respect for nature and living beings including humans, for a change?
