The Most Hated Family in America

The YouTube video below is the first part of a BBC documentary by Louis Theroux called The Most Hated Family in America. Louis Theroux spent three weeks trying to understand a small church, made up mostly of one family, who have a message of hate that they shove into the face of those they believe God hates. It’s a disturbing piece of television. It shows how the arrogance of believing one has the absolute truth can spill over into judgmentalism, hatred, and abuse of others who don’t believe the same. Be warned: there is some strong language and offensive attitudes portrayed. The video here is the first episode and you will find links to the remaining episodes below it.
