Editorial Reviews

Review

"Michael Moore-meets-Monty Python. A humorous and heartfelt examination of the culture wars." --USA Today

"Admirably bold... It would take a hard heart indeed not to be moved." --Variety

"Heartfelt... an effective call for greater understanding." --Los Angeles Times

Product Description

Whether someone is Atheist, Agnostic, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, - or yes, even Christian -all can identify at times with the cry, "Lord, Save Us from Your Followers!" Fed up with the divisive bumper sticker mentality overtaking America, director (and follower) Dan Merchant donned his Bumper Sticker Man suit and set out on the daring search for meaningful dialogue and the true face of faith. Appearing in the film:Senator Al Franken, Dr. Tony Compolo, Former Senator Rick Santorum, Sister Mary Timothy, Paul Young, Bono, George W. Bush, and many, many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must See for every Church leader in the U.S. July 25, 2010
By Ziggy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bono and Campolo in the same movie... what's not to love?!? This movie is a must-watch for all Church leaders. Regardless of whether you agree with its conclusions, it will challenge you to look at ministry in a different light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Overdue and Much Appreciated April 16, 2010
Format:DVD
This is information that most Christians need to know to be true salt and light to everyone around them. The message of Love, Compassion, Non-Judgment, Inclusiveness, and Hope is what everyone needs to hear. I recommend it for the Secular viewer, the Christian viewer, and anyone who is more interested in making this country into a nation of people who honestly care about each other regardless of their creed, race, sexual orientation, politics, or opinions. Let's allow love to create the world we all want to live in!

5.0 out of 5 stars Join the Conversation NOW! March 8, 2010
Format:DVD
Filmmaker Dan Merchant has unwittingly turned modern day prophet as he allows all followers of Christ (or followers of no one at all) to enter the crucial discussion (not argument) concerning "Why is the Gospel of love dividing America?" With a cutting wit and poignant insight Dan allows voices of all social, political and theological bent a turn at airing their individual perspective on all things religious. In the end, the film (and book) opens the opportunity for each one of us to join this badly needed internal and public conversation with the Grace and respect of Christ intact.
Buy 2 now, give one to a friend and let the conversation begin.

5.0 out of 5 stars BAM! February 6, 2010
Format:DVD
This was so excellent, pointing to what is most true about Christ and what it really should look like to follow Him.
I have always suspected that we, at times, have shot ourselves in the foot in "trying" to witness. I especially loved the objectivity and how much it made me laugh;)Jen

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what it says on the tin. February 28, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Despite four or five moments that made perfect sense for anyone of any faith or none, overall I felt this film was disingenuous. Dan Merchant apparently thinks people dislike Christians because they find them hypocritical and/or annoying and spent very little time actually asking non-Christians what they didn't like about Christians. He asked them the safe questions. Christian leaders who have done and said horrible things were mentioned, but shone in a flattering light. For example, footage of George Clooney telling Larry King how he called Pat Robertson to get assistance for the fight against poverty was shown; however, when Merchant mentioned "some Christians" believing the Gulf Coast deserved Hurricane Katrina, Pat Robertson isn't mentioned as being the very person to loudly proclaim that idea. When Jerry Falwell was spewing vitriol via audio only, he wasn't cited as being the source and his face wasn't used for the animated visual, unlike many other audio-only moments in the film. Rick Warren was lauded extensively with absolutely no mention of his contradictory views and how he has extreme political influence over millions of people and has used it.

Overall, this film could have shown the good and the bad to really make people look at how we treat one another. In the end, it became a showcase for charitable Christians and how they should get a free pass because of it. I believe that totally ruined any credibility Merchant had in wanting to make Christians more tolerant because they can now disregard any barely negative aspect of the film and pat themselves on the back for those good deeds. Why would you ask the Lord to save you from his followers who only do kind things? You wouldn't, so including all of that was not in line with the premise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't we all just get along? January 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This movie seemed to start out well, but quickly went downhill. It completely missed the true point of separation of church and state (government should be neutral in religious matters), and instead floated the old canard that certain religious displays offend people. They might, but no one has a right not to be offended in this country. He actually said he felt persecuted when he went into a store that was decorated for Christmas and there was no baby Jesus. I don't think he knows what persecution means. He went completely over the edge when he misrepresented the ACLU, who have defended the rights of individuals against the state no matter what their religious beliefs. This flick needed more research and less bias.

5.0 out of 5 stars If any movie has the power to heal...it's this one December 22, 2010
Format:DVD
I've never written a review for a movie before so I'll make this short. What Dan Merchant has done with this movie is to attempt to heal the scars of a generation of people who have felt discarded and damaged by the evangelical Christian church. And he also reminds those people that everyone is welcome and that the message of love and forgiveness has never excluded anyone. There's a scene in this movie in a confessional booth (no this isn't a "Catholic" movie) that moved me to tears. I think this is probably my favorite movie of the last 5 years, maybe even 10 (and I see a lot of movies)! If you are even remotely considering this, please, see it, you will be so happy that you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional May 22, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
As a Christian who is tired of being labeled as hateful and hypocritical, I thought this movie was exceptional. It gave me a fresh perspective as to why this has happened in our present society. I would recommend it as required viewing for all Christians, and also for those who have problems with Christians. "Lord, Save us From Your Followers," addresses the conflict uniquely, humorously, and with unflinching candor. I thought the content was clear and presented provocatively but without malicious or inflammatory intent.
