Audience Reviews for Friends of God: A Road Trip With Alexandra Pelosi
How she did this without laughing I will never know! The most judgmental thing I have ever seen. Making fun of people not like them - real Christian like. This was seriously disgusting to watch, but she did a great job getting that hate across. Made in 2007, many of the pastors shown in this have since been found in gay affairs, tax evasion, etc.
Creepy - a good companion to Jesus Camp, but isn't as tightly executed. They both feature Ted Haggard, Evangelical church leader who was caught in a meth and prostitution scandal. Now I know that Christian Pro-Wrestling exists, but I didn't get a whole lot more insight into these people. Not sure that I want to. I don't understand how anyone can ignore overwhelming scientific evidence of the world being many millions of years old, not 6 thousand. It's offensive to me. Especially when they try to put it in public schools. The toughest part of this documentary is Jerry Falwell's ghost writer, who is a gay man shunned by his own church. He still goes to see what his enemies are saying about him, and openly cries in the church. Such a sad and messed up moment. I'm pretty sure if Jesus were to show up he would not approve of hating people, or for ignoring the existence of carbon dating.
I agree with a previous commenter: this "documentary" is just poorly-made. It seemed more like one of the History Channel's more flimsy edutainment programs. I would have actually liked it *more* if they concentrated more on ripping apart the silliness of the more extreme Evangelical Christians displayed. It at least made me want to read the God Delusion again.
