Kirk Cameron Gapes Admiringly At Monuments

That seems to be the central motif of Kirk Cameron’s new propaganda film about the founding of America, Monumental.

Did you notice that the dominionist theology which likely underlies the entire film is subtly hidden. There are no facts here, just vague warnings about the “wrong path” which will take down our empire. Then there is the section where we learn about the Pilgrims to a rocking soundtrack—because the Pilgrims were so rock and roll. Then there is the completely vague promise of some good news (wink wink) about the secret principles of our founding which can save us. And not once in the video are the words God or Jesus or Christian or anything except for “good news” said. Because objective Kirk Cameron does not have any agenda here. He is troubled and brow furrowed to learn about how America is on the path to destruction but then amazed to discover the “good news” (wink wink!). It’s all pretty disingenuous, not just in its inevitable content but in its attempt to disguise itself in its marketing.
