America’s Hate Preachers
- United Kingdom
More informationDirector Hannah Livingston spends six months tracking two of America’s most radical Christian hate groups - a notorious pastor from Arizona, who has been banned from the UK and a network of preachers, who take their extremist message directly onto the streets.
The film shows how American free speech laws allow these groups to spread homophobia and Islamophobia in an increasingly polarised and divided political climate.
Drawing on what he claims is a literal interpretation of the bible, the pastor is opening new churches in America and claims to be influencing others by broadcasting his sermons over the internet.
