Rick Santorum’s Hobby Lobby Documentary: America’s Gonna Ban Christianity And Go Nazi (Video)
So now that the Hobby Lobby case has established once and for all the sacred right of employers to crack down on rowdy ladyparts, Rick Santorum’s Echolight Studios wants you all to know that they just happen to have a movie in the works that includes a discussion of Hobby Lobby — what excellent timing! One Generation Away: The Erosion of Religious Liberty is all about how Christianity is under siege and America’s just on the verge of going completely Nazi. And one of the main examples is the Hobby Lobby case, in which brave Christian business owners were brutally oppressed by a government mandate to cover the very birth control that they had already covered until 2012. Now, the whole “religious freedom is endangered” claim doesn’t seem like it’s supported by the fact that Hobby Lobby won the right to tell women to get bent, so we’ll be curious how the movie fits that in. But according to the trailer, the government is coming to cut down all the crosses and wish them into the cornfield.
We learn from the trailer that the Founders only wanted free expression of religion, not any dumb separation of church and state, and that if we don’t act quickly, then we’re in exactly the same place that German Christians were when they didn’t wake up and stop the Nazis, because apparently everything else in America is just like Germany in the early 1930s. This is just logic, people. But couldn’t we just, for once, become some other dictatorship? Why not warn us that we’re just a decade away from becoming Zaire under Mobutu Sese Seko or Albania under Enver Hoxha?
This steaming pile of a movie will initially be released to be shown in churches this September, and may or may not actually show in theaters — the distributor says it will, but then EchoLight also wanted a theatrical release for its second dramatic film, The Redemption of Henry Myers, which went straight to cable. On the other hand, there’s always money to be made telling Christians that they’re unspeakably oppressed, so this probably will make it to the multiplex; we can hardly wait to review it.
