The documentary mini-series follows Jeff Sharlet's books "The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power" and "C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy". See more »
I've been saying for years that Hollywood would never touch the right wing Evangelical cult that has been secretly controlling Washington DC for decades. NetFlix deserves kudos for finally bringing this into living rooms. Perhaps the (s)election of Donald J. Trump and his "God will build us a new planet if we destroy this one" Vice President Pence inspired NetFlix to dive into the book and make this documentary.
As a documentary, the style is OK. I'm not sure if I like the merging of recreated events with the historical footage. I think a Ken Burns approach may have worked better.
This country is not a JudeoChristian Theocracy. We have something called Separation of Church and State. Running the country based on Old Testament fairy tales is akin to Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Saudi Arabia running their countries based on the Koran. Religion in politics is recipe for disaster. As we in the United States are experiencing now, with Evangelicals calling a narcissistic failed businessman the "chosen one."
Great job NetFlix. A documentary, despite its flaws, that everyone in this country should see.
