Just a heads up that PBS will be airing a 6 hour series, called God In America, starting Monday October 11th. There is a preview on their website, but I’ve included it below as well.
From what I’ve read, the show will span a 500 year period from early European contact with the new world to the 2008 election. I’m expecting a fair portrayal of the role of religion in the founding of the country. Although, those with extreme views on both sides of that subject will likely not be pleased and come up with reasons to dismiss this series. Finally, I’m curious how much those of us without religion will be discussed.
I’ll try and add my comments of the show to my monthly movie reviews for October. Stay tuned.
