Louis Theroux – The Odd, the Bad and the Godly [DVD]

This box set has an episode called The Most Hated Family in America. It looks at the Westborough Baptist Church. A really good documentary that without any doubt will have your students discussing ethical ideas in no time. The question is – should we show them the agape love that they do not show others?
