“Politicians need a little more God.”

That is the sentiment from Bill Andrew, executive producer of “The Young Messiah,” a feature film currently in theaters chroncling the life and times of Jesus Christ as a seven-year-old child. In a creative push-back against what he calls “gutter politics,” Mr. Andrew is offering a free screening of the movie to all 535 members of Congress to get his point across.

“Our politics is getting ugly and our country deserves better. It is part of the process to disagree, but the key is to express those disagreements in a civil manner. This Easter season I hope our leaders will take a breather and allow themselves to be inspired by Jesus Christ, and be reminded of the lessons he has for all of us, whether we are believers or not,” said Mr. Andrew, who has made the film available to be seen online or at a local theater.

He’s already got a customer.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is the first to take Mr. Andrew up on the offer. The California Republican will host his own special screening over Easter weekend for the film, which chronicles the life of the youthful Jesus — “as he grew in wisdom and stature, coming to the full realization of his divinity,” according to the producer. The film is based on the Anne Rice novel “Christ our Lord: Out of Egypt.”
