Louis Theroux is one of those journalists unafraid to step off the beaten path and talk to some really out-there characters. This is a snippet from his program focused on evangelical Christians.
In the first part Louis talks to an evangelical preacher. His unwavering belief that people can be overcome with the energy of the Lord merely by his touch seems a little incredible, but he’s not why I posted this video.
Make sure you hang around to see the women Louis encounters as he’s leaving the church. She used to be a bar-hopping, pot-smoking lesbian before she was saved. Now she appears to be an incapacitated giggly crackpot!
I’m sure she’s having a good time, but I’m sure a lot of us will wonder whether this religion caper has done her any favors at all!
