Lord Save Us From Your Followers Press Room
Thursday, July 2, 2009

Dear Media

In this online press room, you will find press materials and numerous media resources regarding the challenging and eye-opening film, Lord, Save Us From Your Followers, which opens in theaters nationwide on September 25, 2009 through Thunderstruck Films. The much anticipated film boldly explores the question, "Why is the Gospel of love dividing America?"

Lord, Save Us From Your Followers explores how secular America really sees Christians and realistically exposes: "how effective is the impact we are really having?" The entertaining yet thought-provoking film, which has been featured on THE TODAY SHOW and in USA TODAY, dramatically investigates the collision of faith and culture in America. This is a crucial film for the faith community and mainstream culture to see!

The film’s creator and director Dan Merchant conducted exclusive interviews with comedian/Senatorial candidate Al Franken, former Senator and Religious Right inside man Rick Santorum, noted “liberal evangelical” Tony Campolo, conservative radio host Michael Reagan and racial reconciliation activist Dr. John Perkins. Lord, Save Us From Your Followers also features interviews with Bono, George Clooney, Pastor Rick Warren (Purpose Driven Life), James Dobson, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, as no stone is left unturned in this engaging, unpredictable and challenging look at the conflict over religion in America.

In the tradition of entertaining documentaries like Super Size Me, Bowling for Columbine and What the Bleep Do We Know?, Lord, Save Us From Your Followers employs the language of pop culture to create a provocative, amusing and redemptive film-going experience. With the successful use of man-on-the-street encounters with "Bumpersticker Man," a "Culture Wars" game show, a moving "Confession Booth" at a gay pride event (where Merchant himself actually does the confessing) Lord, Save Us From Your Followers delves into all the hot button issues with candor, humor and balance bringing everyone into the conversation that this country is yearning to have.

We look forward to talking with about the numerous ways you can help support this very important, life-changing project! For more on Lord, Save Us From Your Followers, visit www.lordsaveusthemovie.com.
