As a secular heathen whose soul is destined for the fiery pits of Hell, I try to give faith-based movies the benefit of the doubt. These movies were not made for me. I am not the intended audience. I let the vast majority of these movies pass me by and we are allowed to peacefully co-exist. I even thought Risen looked pretty darn interesting for a “Christian” film, and I’m the kind of person who thinks The Last Temptation of Christ is the best “Christian” movie ever made.
That brings us to the trailer for God’s Not Dead 2, a movie that exists so it can literally preach the choir. I find this movie fascinating not because it looks good (it looks cheap and bad), but because the cackling villains featured in the trailer ultimately come off looking pretty reasonable and level-headed.
