    If you think that the only insane people exist in the other side of the world, this documentary proves that it isn't so! And what is even more scary is that this people look & act just like everyone you know.... I believe in the freedom of speech & creed, but this people don't. In other words or you are with them or you are death, because the will kill you!!! It is a must watch documentary on the Christian fundamentalist that kill innocent people just because they don't follow what they believe......

    I don't know how to begin to review this documentary from the HBO America Undercover series. It touches on a very delicate subject, abortion and the freaks that populate this Army of God. And by freaks I mean, some insane people who I believe just need a little nudge to cross that border into McVeigh land. The documentary starts by showing us the Army of God's holy martyr, Paul Hill, who shot at 3 people and killed 2 of them all in the name of God. Then we meet this Army of God. Neal Horsely, Bob Lokey and Jonathan O'Toole being it's major players. They're all a few sandwiches short of a Sunday picnic. There's no other way I can this, they're nuts. When Bob Lokey was serving 20 years for murder, he, predictably of course, found God and proceeded to circumcise himself with a razor blade and he thinks this is all sane and for the greater good. Horsely, whose name is not without irony, is a man who practiced zoophilia or bestiality in the past. Jonathan O'Toole, who at 19 left his family to live with Horsely in another state so that he could be "groomed" for the Army of God's impending war on "Gomorrah" and joined the marines to learn how to use ordinance (I wonder why?) What's frightening is that those who do have wives, those wives are relegated to being party hosts to get-togethers for the Army of God that seem to go down like a Tupperware party from hell. Parties where these rednecks from Alabama (and surroundings states) have fun re-enacting... wait for it... a Jerry Springer episode on sluts who aborted babies – you just can't get more white trash than that. I feel sorry for the people of the "redneck states", for whom, the Army of God is their cultural ambassadors to the outside world. I wish we could something else than this coming from those states. What's even more frightening is a conversation between Horsely and Lokey. Horsely, the ever enlightened servant of God, speaks of seeing a male duck following a female duck around like the loser that he his, because he was, and I quote, "vaginaly defeated" but the girl duck. Oh now we are getting to the meat of the matter, the whole reason why all these men are so hell bent against abortion. Lokey proceeds to tell him that is exactly why he circumcised himself, because he to was vaginaly defeated. This militancy isn't about abortion, it's about control over the harpies, those sinful women who lead us by our gonads into the burning flames of hell. Well that's how they made it sound. This isn't truly about protecting children; it's about control over women. These are those types who could never get a handle on their sex life (no pun intended) or women. Women are evil temptresses so they must be controlled, herded, at any cost. Militancy is never about the cause, it's about imposing a view on others, and it's about controlling others, to compensate for the hole, whatever it may be, in the militant's life. In this case, probably fears and/or feelings of inadequacy towards the opposite sex. It could have been any cause. Had they been born in Québec, they'd be hardcore separatists dedicated to the protection of the French language from the evil Anglo-Canadian Empire. Different cause, same behavior; they're simply wired for militancy. They all hold blindfolded faith in the Good Book and use it ad nauseum as a defense and never truly answer a question. They instead quickly pull the nearest relevant quote from the Bible from their heads in dire need of scanning for tissue damage. They sound more and more like fundamentalists in the same vein as Al Queda. God is always on their side. One Tupperware hostess chants (literally chants) that they are the good guys and the good guys are always outnumbered and always win. The Army of God members all profess to have God speaking to them personally, on an individual basis (No information on whether one of them was told to become President is presently available). Everything they do was ordained by God and if God orders them to kill they will do so without hesitation. O'Toole, seemingly the most naive and innocent one, because of his youth perhaps, also seems the most delusional. At the execution of Paul Hill in 2003, he said that a rainbow appeared, dark clouds looming behind it. Thunder and lightning were announcing the illegitimate death of Hill and that on the moment the switch was flicked, all the lights went out, on giant thunder clap was heard at the instant of death and then all the sky went quiet and rain fell. According to O'Toole, the rainbow was a symbol for the faithful and the storm a warning of the impending war on the faithless. Pat Robertson needs to hire this guy for his PR team. This was another one of HBO's no holds barred gritty and quality docs on touchy subjects. They don't shy away from taking chances or close their eyes to phenomena they'd rather not hear about. During an interview, you can hear the interviewer relentlessly pushing to get more out of O'Toole that he was willing to share. And boy did we get an earful on jews, Al Queda, homegrown terrorism et al. I can't get enough of HBOs daring docs and hope that my store will carry more titles in the future. The only thing missing was more background on these nutters who think they will save America from its foolishness. I give it a 4 outta 5
