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.

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

Customer Reviews

It is because I came to the conclusion that the supernatural explanation was unreasonable, illogical, and unnecessary.

It is so amazing to watch and hear someone else say the exact same thing I have been thinking and doing for awhile now (no I am not boasting lol).
Jordan Tryon
I appreciated this film, and hope that it will help us in our attempt as Christians to be loving, while never compromising the truth.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

I give the filmmaker credit for his concern and sensitivity. He is bothered by religion's reduction to a bumper-sticker slogan, and is disturbed by the hypocrisy and sanctimoniousness of his co-religionists. He wants to focus more on community service, and less on church service. And he says that he wants to engage unbelievers in respectful dialog.

So he walks across the country in a jumpsuit covered with provocative religiously-oriented bumper stickers, which he uses to get people's attention and engage them. He is openly contemptuous of the Fred Phelps/Jerry Falwell brand of Christianity; he recognizes that this repels more people than it attracts. He makes a big point of showing Pope John Paul II at the Wailing Wall, asking forgiveness for the Inquisition, the Crusades, and the Catholic Church's treatment of the Jews. There are many scenes of the hungry being fed, washing the feet of the homeless, and rebuilding homes after Hurricane Katrina. The point is made - the "Sheep and the Goats" speech from Matthew 25 ("Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me") is what's important. The filmmaker befriends a man in a drag nun's habit, and later sets up a booth at a gay pride festival in Portland, Oregon, to apologize to the gays and lesbians who have been "hurt by Christians." He seems to understand that the "brand," so to speak, has been poisoned by the hellfire and brimstone preachers who preceded him.

The problem is that the hard questions are not addressed. Merchant doesn't discuss the Catholic Church covering up child molestation for decades, and the Pope's continued condemnation of homosexuality.
