Summary
"In Topeka, Kansas, the Phelps family run an organization called God Hates Fags. They demonstrate at the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq proclaiming that God is punishing America for its tolerance towards homosexuals. Uniontown, Indiana has a population of fifty-three. It's quiet country with quiet folks, at least it was until some out-of-State operators opened a truck stop porn store just off the Interstate. For the last two years protestors have maintained a non-stop twenty-four hour vigil outside the stor, trying to run it out of town. In Virginia the Wymans, a self-styled heterosexual couple, warn of the corrosive effect of gay marriage on the American family. This is the spectrum of evangelical Christians that seems to have a grip on American. and especially Republican, politics. For evangelical Christians like Uniontown's protestors the issue is simple: they must take arms against sexual sin to save their nation on the Day of Judgement. Others say that evangelical Christians are being taken for a ride. Cynically manipulated by Republican political tactitians, their sexual prejudices were ultimately responsible for Presidetn George W. Bush'e 2004 election victory. The Road to Hell is a witty and dark dissection of these accusations from the backwoods of Uniontown to the political jungle of George W. Bush's Washington. This timely documentary about the cycnical manipulation of America's religious right for electoral victory has been scheduled in the lead-up to the next US election"--Screenrights
