GREENSBORO, N.C. -- God’s existence was a nearly universal assumption for the past 2,000 years, but in the modern day with all the technology and scientific knowledge we have, there are some who doubt it.

This has left many Christians feeling that America has a hostile atmosphere toward members of their faith.

A new movie made by a small, independent film company is telling that story in the surprise hit of the year, called “God’s Not Dead.”

The film was made for just $2 million and has already grossed more than $50 million, outselling many of the big budget productions from the traditional studios.

In this edition of the Buckley Report you will meet a man who took quite a turn in his life to come to the point where he relates quite well to the main characters in this movie. You will also hear from a professor at a local university who has traveled the same road – in the other direction.

    Unfortunately God today is simply a vehicle for wealth accumulation by those manipulative enough to use the platform. If Jesus came back he’d be hung up quickly with his love for all people. Christians today are dominated money hungry racists- certainly the most anti-Jesus bunch to ever walk the face of the earth.

    Bob Buckley is an ignoramus if he believes that to be true. Christianity is not “under attack,” ignorance is and deservedly so.

      Uhm Tom, you do know that it is a farce, don’t you? Please tell me that in the year 2014 you still don’t believe that people can survive in the belly of a whale and that Noah built an ark and all that fairy tale phuckery do you? If you answer in the positive, please castrate yourself right away so we can rest assured that you are not breeding.

    People don’t participate in Christianity because of all the racist, homophobic, and arrogant members who make the entire religion unappealing. It has nothing to do with technology and science.

    • Buddy

      Adam all those “people” aren’t Christians. They claim to be but they truly aren’t. It is all black and white, their is no gray area.

      Sadly, I agree. I am a Christian & can’t tell you how many of my non – believing friends have had bad experiences from other “religious” people or
      Felt judged or belittled for their stance. I just love them and share my story if they are wanting to know…or if they ask what my secret to happiness is. Nothing speaks louder than actions. (:

    Please know FaithC that those who do not believe are usually just angry in general or with God.

    Praise Jesus… His love endures forever. Saved me from hurts and is with me wherever I go. If all are good enough for him they are good enough for me. Love each other don’t hurt.
