Soldiers in the Army Of God [2000]

By Adam Thomas

Wednesday March 1, 2006

Mark Levin & Daphne Pinkerson The recent decision by a South Dakota court to make abortion illegal, even in the case of rape or incest, is a frightening gain for the intolerant, fundamentalist Christian movement in the U.S. In this documentary director Marc Levin (Slam) heads down to Pensacola, Florida, where there is a legitimate civil war happening. It is there that a fanatically armed militia of seemingly ordinary citizens has taken it upon themselves to protect the unborn and to kill doctors who provide abortions, and to bomb their clinics. The film features nonchalant interviews from convicted murderer Paul Hill and anti-abortion activist leaders John Lokey and Neal Horsley. These are the men, yes men, who are prepared to kill so the women they rape can’t get rid of the memory.
