God's warriors
« on: Sat Sep 29, 2007 - 04:07:55 »
this documentary was highly advertised on cnn international so i watched it to see what she(christiana amanpor) would say and how she would treat the christian segment.

i came away very disappointed as i felt she did nothing or talked about nothing we haven't known about for the past 40-50 years.  i am not a fan of ms. amanpor, based upon her other work, and felt she was the wrong person for this job.

one key point (and i wrote cnn with a list of 14) was she did not compare any of the segments with any criteria taken from the Bible.  it was assumed that all were fighting for the same God, which they are not, and it was assumed that each faith had it right, which they don't.

to me this was not an investigative report but a re-hashing of already public information.

your thoughts and votes...

I thought it was pretty shoddy myself. The episode on Christianity was supposed to focus on evangelicals, but it was the same group that they always talk about. I really don't know how one can do a show that allegedly focuses on evangelicals and yet it never talks about Rick Warren. I am no fan of Warren, or most of the others that they carted out, but the guy is one of the biggest names in evangelicalism. Plus she also could have talked about how we are starting to see a backlash in evanglicalisim to the conservative evangelicals who have tried to imply that the Christian way to vote is always Republican. And there is so much else that she missed.

Naaah, the right way to vote isn't always Republican.  The right way to vote is my way.  I just see more Republicans voting my way more often than others.

Do you think I could arrange to see this online?  I don't watch TV usually.
