January 11th, 2015

Check out Episode 26 of the Pop God POPcast, hosted by Alex Doriot of PopGodBlog.com.

Left Behind: It's one of the most bizarre movies of the year. Nicolas Cage starring in a remake of a Kirk Cameron movie based on a Christian book series based on the Rapture? My wife Kate Doriot and I watched all 105 minutes of it and had to talk about on this very special edition of the Popcast. We cover everything from the crazy casting of Jordin Sparks and Chad Michael Murray to the importance of "investigative journalism" to no one in the movie understanding how the Rapture works. Plus we break down how Nicolas Cage might be the best part of this movie and what we think would really happen if people got "left behind." Whether you've see Left Behind or not, listen in to find out what really goes down in this controversial "Christian" film.
