Your Faith on CNN

From Friendly Atheist.
CNN is going to be airing a six-hour documentary over three nights beginning on August 21st. It’s called God’s Warriors. Christiane Amanpour will be hosting.

For this documentary, Amanpour reports that during the last 30 years, each faith has exploded into a powerful political force, comprised of followers – “God’s warriors” – who share a deep dissatisfaction with modern society, and a fierce determination to place God and religion back into daily life and to the seats of power. Their political and cultural struggles to save the world from what they view as secular materialism, greed and sexual corruption have caused anger, division and fear.

“There are millions of people around the world who feel that their faith is being ignored – pushed aside – and they are certain they know how to make the world right,” Amanpour says. “We cannot and should not ignore them. And, with this report, we’ve tried to explain them.”

CNN is asking for your I-Reports:

Are you one of the millions of people who live by faith? Do you believe religion is under attack in modern society? Have the lines blurred too much or not enough between religion and politics?

Share your thoughts about faith and the state of religion in the world. Plus, send us your photos and video to show others how you worship.

I’m sure there are atheists who have something to say about that third question…
I'm probably not going to watch this, since they won't cover any atheist issues, and if they do, it will probably follow a bunch of these 'God Warriors' as they protest teaching evolution in schools, or some shit like that. If you have the time, I seriously suggest you send in a video offering some kind of dissenting viewpoints. That way, I have something else to watch on YouTube besides Arrested Development clips.
