"I think freedom of conscience and religious persecution is beginning to emerge as an issue, but it's not clear whether it has enough traction yet to be part of the election cycle," Bauer said. "A movie like this is very important because public opinion in the United States tends to be molded by culture, film, music, books and even entertainment more than, I think, talking heads on 'Meet the Press' or whatever. I'm glad the film is out there and I'll do everything I can to promote it."
Indeed, Gary Bauer, a 2000 Republican presidential candidate and head of the Virginia-based American Values organization, said the film has the potential to influence midterm elections this year and two years hence, if the issue of religious freedom continues to gather steam among the electorate.
