Screening of "With God On Our Side"
"With God On Our Side: The Rise of the Religious Right in America" takes an in-depth look at President Bush's connection with evangelical Christianity.
The film chronicles the emergence of conservative Christians as a potent political force. At the same time, it explores evangelical leaders' surprisingly rocky relationships with american presidents. It exams a late-190s Christian Right get-out-the-vote video, and a pivotal anti-abortion animation set to Cole Porter's "Anything Goes." The film then focuses in on the evangelical journey of George W. Bush and how the president's beliefs informed his decision as Commander-in-Chief.
Part of the weekly film series for Politics 101.
