Actually it’s quite on topic, the film was made by a Catholic filmmaker with a Jewish filmmaker who were both concerned about the issue.

It was made to show the dangerous extremes of fundamentalism. It was actually made by a catholic who was interested in finding out about these groups and went to them saying so.

Along similar lines, Alexandra Pelosi has a new documentary out called “Friends of God” which follows around Evangelicals. She even spends time with Ted Haggard, just a week before the scandal broke.

Ah yes, the fruits of sola scriptura and personal Jesus and private revelation (tablets of gold and all that stuff).

This is what happens when what is considered ‘the Gospel of Jesus’ is open to any one’s interpretation.

Teachable moment here, my non-Catholic friends (including neo-gothic-rave-wiccan-alternative-new age-pagans ones!!)
