With God On Our Side - Episode 3

After Vietnam and Watergate, America is looking for a Good Father, and despite media befuddlement at the 'born-again' Jimmy Carter, his religious faith helps convince voters he can heal the nation. Carter's election heralds a new era of evangelical engagement in every area of modern life, from broadcasting to basketball. But modern life also means divorce, feminism, and gay rights, and at Carter's White House Conference on Families, conservative Christians choose polarization on those issues over reuniting the American family.
