New York, (PressExposure) March 22, 2007 -- Faith is a very sacred choice; a choice not to be entered into lightly. So, when a decision is made to join a church, it never occurs to you that the church leadership may someday take advantage of that sacred decision. With topics ranging from sexual improprieties, permissible divorce, stringent rules and regulation, shotgun weddings, intentional public humiliation, and much more, director Lance Gibsonâs soon-to-be released controversial documentary entitled, âAll in the Name of Godâ exposes the misuse of power within the religious community.
As founder and CEO of Diamond Film Company (DFC), a full service concept development and film company, Lance created, produced, directed and edited âAll in the Name of God.â According to Gibson, âMy true intentions with this 64-minute documentary is to shine the spotlight of the abuse on the clerics throughout the 21st century which has brought about emotional, mental and spiritual condemnation to those who had a sincere desire to learn and develop a relationship with God. Many victims carry that guilt with them to this dayâ.
Due out, tentatively, April 11, 2007, this part 1 of 2 cinematic masterpiece features Bishops, Pastors, politicians, mental health professionals, Bible scholars and lay people, as well as victims who are willing to share their stories with the world in order to prevent another person from going down the same road. At times, this compelling piece will leave you stunned and perplexed; while at the same time, sad and discouraged, yet you remain hopeful that this exposeâ will do its good work and help in the healing process for those who have been victimized. What you will see is all true, the people are very real and all of the incidents did take place. How sad.
