| Give um enough rope and they'll hang themselves.
Andrew Denton in his inimitable style opens the contrived persona of American fundamentalist protestantism for all to see. Denton has this wonderful, gentle and humane way of asking extremely personal questions of people which they readily answer and only after they see the rushes and have excoriated themselves before the viewing public do they see where their words have led.

True to his intelligence, Denton waits until the end of the film before springing the real scary stuff on us--the stuff about Israel needing to exist before the "end-time" arrives. What an awful alliance or should I rather say an alliance made in heaven, Zionist Israel allied with fundamentalist America. The weirdness of this alliance is articulated by Denton when he points out to an unknowing believer that the Jews cannot be saved according to his Bible because they are not Christians and as such will be among the unsaved at the end-time.

Out of all this religio-philosophy grows the mother of all conspiracy theories and that is, the Fundamentalist Christians are doing all they can do to end the world, as one of Denton's interviewees says, "In my generation". A very strange juxtaposition of religion and reality at the beginning of the new millennium!
