As a pastor ministering in the "Christ-haunted" South, I thought that "Friends of God" gives an accurate image of a religion that justifies American culture and a so-called religious ideology while at the same time, ignores the plight of the poor and the wars that we have created while creating an atmosphere of fear, ignorance and intolerance. For instance, I don't believe that Jesus would ask us to be "pro-life" while supporting capital punishment and an illegal war at the same time. I don't believe that Jesus would have us gather to worship in pristine "mega-churches" while our urban areas decay and millions of American children continue to be left behind by both the Democrats and the Republicans. Jesus calls us not merely to worship him, but more importantly, to follow him--not to justify ourselves and our own culture and lifestyle--but to advance the Kingdom of God. By that, he ministered to the poor, downtrodden, and to those on the outside of the mainstream who might be different than us. (Sorry about the short sermon! It's a great and thought provoking documentary!)

I've read several reviews that throw around terms like "liberal" and "biased". I can only blame it on two things; offence and ignorance. To deny that people like this exist is absurd.

There are extremists in every group which are unfortunately louder then those who are sane - thus generating the bad reputation that a lot of these groups end up with. This documentary showcases such crazy extremists.

I will never understand why politics started mixing so heavily with religion, as religion is NOT the birthplace of morality. But that is another matter.

This documentary is entertaining moreso then it is informative. I don't see an apparent bias, as Pelosi barely speaks with the exception of asking questions, which tend to be general and not particularly pointed or offensive (unlike Micheal Moore) as evident by the relaxed nature the interviewees exhibit while answering the questions. Yes, Pelosi may be a liberal, but that does not in and of itself mean that she is biased or hates Christians or any other absurd things said in the reviews on this website.

See it for yourself and make your own decision. Just understand that this documentary is about fundamental Evangelicals and is NOT about Christianity in general, as stated in the film's description.

Format: DVD
Andrea Pelosi seeks to shed light on the political strength of the modern-day Evangelical movement in the U.S. and its implications on the future of America's course.
Cruising through the heart of America, Pelosi interviews many prominent and not so prominent hard-core fundamentalist individuals, pastors, and organizations in order to demonstrate their ever-growing involvement in American Politics.

The issue that struck me the most was the efforts of organizations such as Answers in Genesis to imbue children with the pseudo-scientific concepts such as the coexistence of dinosaurs and man. Even after autonomous refutation by the scientific community, this hard-core fundamentalist camp still seeks to turn young minds to the cause of "Creationism." Personally, I believe that this deprives children of one of the most cherished gifts: the ability to think for one's self. In more ways than one, this is child abuse of the worst kind.

As a gay man, I must give credit to Pelosi for including a prominent gay clergyman in the documentary. I always have theorized that fundamentalist-evangelicals have felt the necessity to continue to demonize the GLBT community for the fear of losing their jobs. The day the GLBT community merges with the greater American community, is the day the fundamentalist-evangelical movement runs out of steam. The very idea that homosexuals have the same rights as other citizens!!!

In short, "Friends of God" is a very important documentary for the personal collections of the political warey. Liberals and political conservatives alike will enjoy this dvd. Of course, one must always consider the biases of the creator. Pelosi is a self-described atheist and the question of her own intentions for creating this documentary is ever present.

This is a very interesting documentary. I appreciate the tact and respect that were used in asking questions of the people in the video. I do, however, think the video misrepresents the attitudes of many Christians in the south. Most of those interviewed were of an extreme evangelical bent at best, or even cult fanatics operating on the fringes of Christianity. They do not represent all Christians. There are many who pose more moderate positions on the issues of creation/evolution, homosexuality, and the completely "literal" translation of selected passages from the Bible. As a southerner, I resent the implications that this biased production presents.

Format: DVD
Unlike the usual liberal documentaries, this is a deep and honest look at a huge portion of our population. This is not drive-by journalism, the filmmaker had a great repoire with Jerry Falwell, Joel Osteen and Ted Haggard. (In fact, the filmmaker got to know disgraced former pastor Ted Haggard so well that he let her make the follow-up movie with him about his fall). It is important to appreciate films that attempt to understand their subjects.
