With God On Our Side - Episode 1

With God On Our Side - Episode 1

Post-War fundamentalism is marked by optimism, mass revival meetings, and disdain for worldly politics. But current events -- from America's growing anti-Communism to the election of Catholic John Kennedy to the Civil Rights movement -- prod evangelical Christians into the political arena. Dismayed by Supreme Court rulings banning school prayer and encouraged by the Goldwater '64 campaign, conservative Christians rise up in Anaheim, California, to launch a nationwide revolt against sex education.
