This film should be required viewing for all high school children to warn them of the extremely seductive attractions and extreme vices of Evangelistic so-called "christianity". It should be considered just as important to high school education as "safe sex" and even more than the namby pampy, PC "Civics Courses" they 'teach' to brainwash our children. We have a so-called, insanely destructive "president" partly elected by these ignorant Evangelistic fools. They were so terrified of this film when it was released that it was banned by many bible belt cities and even by several religiously-bigoted states --- almost all Confederate if my research is correct. And, I've never seen it on public TV because it's "toxic" because it is a scathing repudiation of religious intolerance and corruption within Evangelistic and Charismatic "christian" sects. Read the book. It's better than the movie because it was written by Sinclair Lewis, one of the 20th Century's greatest novelists, and it doesn't have the excesses that Hollywood has to add to generate revenue from the masses.
