As a layman, I can understand the idea that the religious are to be congratulated for the good things they have done, like cutting carbon emissions. I cannot respect the idea that the pope is to be congratulated for trying to bring the most conservative and Catholic country in the world to a far more liberal and secular form of life. This film is not an objective portrait of the Catholic Church, but a one-sided, negative and biased piece of propaganda. It paints the Catholic Church as a relic of the past that is the antithesis of what the Catholic Church is now. It focuses on only certain aspects of the Catholic Church and does not seem to examine the role of the various different branches of the Catholic Church in general. It fails to give any background information about other branches of the Catholic Church or even to examine the real world and the nature of Catholicism, like the number of people who join the Catholic Church, the number of families that belong to the Catholic Church or even the percentage of Catholics who are still practicing Catholics, who are primarily Catholics. All of this leads to the conclusion that the film is biased and is only useful to Catholic political activists. For example, Pope Francis was condemned for two main reasons: 1) his desire to raise taxes to help the poor 2) his desire to improve the image of the Catholic Church. However, the fact that he did not raise taxes, like many other high-income tax-avoiding governments in the world, is irrelevant and does not merit the condemnation. The only reason the film raises the criticism is to get a result. The reason that it fails is because the film gives the impression that it is trying to point out the main negative side of the Catholic Church, namely that the Catholic Church is corrupt and that it is a relic of the past that is a non-representative institution. In other words, the film is an attempt to shame the Catholic Church and the Pope for not being moral. That's the only positive point of the film. On the other hand, the film is not biased. It is neutral and tries to objectively show both sides of the Catholic Church and Pope Francis. It does not try to point out the positive side of the Catholic Church because this would be giving more information than the film needs and is not useful.

Dr. Robert Alwayt, a popular radio host and author of books on science and religion, is interviewed by Peter Radon, the founder of the World Association for Science and the New York Times' science columnist. Alwayt discusses his background as a scientist and gives his assessment of the scientific basis for his arguments. At the same time, Radon also takes a stab at Alwayt, addressing questions he has about his beliefs on evolution and other scientific claims. Radon argues that there is no scientific support for evolution, and that claims to be an expert on science simply mean that you have spent time in a religious school and you have special training in "something you don't know much about". Radon's second point is that Alwayt is not a scientist and therefore cannot assess his claims to be scientific. He is also a man who makes claims to have "advanced" degrees in science, even though he is not a scientist. In his own words, he has: "I've had a lot of degrees in economics, my doctorate in finance and international relations, but not a degree in science." While I agree that many people may disagree with Alwayt's views on evolution, or with his views on the climate, I think he is an imperfect person, and that his motivations are really selfish. Alwayt is a man who wants to show that all humans are created equal. However, his attitude toward evolution is warped, and I find him to be extremely biased. Radon also has some nice, funny, and informative segments. One of his main points is that religion has become a source of conflict in the world, and Radon uses this as a basis for his arguments. Radon is a staunchly Christian, and he argues that religion is fundamentally selfish and outdated. Radon says that religion was originally created to promote some economic benefit and to benefit the people. However, Radon argues that religious beliefs need to be re-evaluated and re-evaluated. He makes some interesting arguments, and I think that this is a very good documentary. Overall, this is an interesting documentary that should be enjoyed by anyone who wants to learn about religion. While I disagree with Alwayt's views on evolution, I still think that he is an excellent man and I wish him the best of luck. 7/10

Well, it's like all of those other documentaries you can get at the movies. It's just not as good. It's short, but so well written, that it's difficult to believe that it's not longer. It's certainly not all about Francis. It's not a biography, but it covers a lot of ground. It discusses the Franciscan order of which Francis is a very important part, about the Knights of Malta, and about a couple of other things. I read a lot of the other reviews here, and I get the impression that most people really like it, and they don't seem to be expecting much more. There are two parts. The first is about the religion of the Knights of Malta, and it covers the history of them and Francis' own experiences with them. The second is a story about Francis' life, and it covers all of his miracles and revelations. That's all I'm allowed to say about it. The first part covers all of the good stuff, so it's a real treat. It's not in a hurry, but it's very good, and very focused. If you're into magic and miracles and don't mind a little light humor, then this is the documentary for you. It's not as religious as some other, but it's not bad either. It's also not exactly a documentary about Francis. It's about a man, who left a strong impression on millions of people, and I really admire his persistence and his ability to do that, so I really recommend you see it. It's one of those documentaries that you can look back on, and you'll remember how great it was, and how much it changed you as a person, and you'll remember why you were so angry about it. It also gives you a feeling of some kind of truth, and you'll find out if you were right or wrong. It's all very nice. I hope the final part will give you the same satisfaction.

It's hard to know where to start with this movie. Because it covers so many aspects of what is and is not a true witness. The problem is that it was made by non-Catholics and the inclusion of such parts as the All Saints' weekend in Rome and the way the pope comes to terms with his legacy, among many others, are good news for Catholics but not for non-Catholics. I saw this film in English and it is in the language of the Catholic Church, Latin. There were times when I almost wished the subtitles were read out loud. The acting was good, the story, if not entirely accurate, is entertaining and has some powerful scenes. It's also a great look at how the Catholic Church can, as one might expect, be a bit more selective than other religions. And it is just a little bit interesting to see how much of the problem can be traced back to the Vatican, the Church and their leaders. The film also is not too heavy-handed in its presentation of the story and is very accessible. It is also a very personal film for the viewer, a Jesuit serving in Rome who says that the pope has done the right thing by questioning his own teachings, which he didn't do in the 1970s. And when a student explains to him why he cannot have "commission" from the pope because it is contrary to the Catholic faith, he responds with, "You know what, I have a problem with religion." The Catholic Church can be a pretty tough place and I would recommend this movie for those who don't have much else to do.

Francis has been a powerful influence in my life. From my own experience, I have witnessed a different side of this Pope, which I have never encountered in any of my other friends. As a Jesuit, I was quite familiar with the struggles of the Jesuits. But, I have never experienced a Pope who has actually experienced the struggles of the Jesuits, and I am very much aware that there is not a single person in the world who could actually be a Jesuit who is not at least a bit at least a little bit affected by the Jesuits. I have also never encountered a Pope who has openly embraced the Jesuits. To the contrary, the Pope is a very strict and focused person, and the Jesuits, while they have some issues with the Pope, do not seem to have a lot of problems with him. I have also never encountered a Pope who is not a Jesuit. I have always heard about the Jesuits from my teachers and from my friends, and I have always been very aware of the fact that they are very unique, and they are probably the most persecuted religious group in the world. I have never known a Pope who has not been a Jesuit, and I have never known a Pope who is not a Jesuit. That is what makes this documentary so powerful and so interesting. It is a documentary that really shows the Pope Francis, his Jesuit tendencies, and how he has dealt with the Jesuits, both in the past and in the present. It is an interesting and powerful documentary. I have watched this documentary about 20 times, and it never gets old for me. I have listened to it several times on the radio, and I have even watched it with my wife and children. I do not know how many times I have watched this documentary, but I have watched it several times and it is always interesting. It is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.
