Let There Be Light – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 115
“Like it or not, I’ll be praying for you.”
Digital missionaries Daniel and Corky stop supporting terrorists long enough to review the proudly proselytizing Let There Be Light. The film stars Kevin Sorbo as Sol Harkens, a world-famous atheist lecturer with all the stereotypical supermodel and sports car trappings of the anti-faith debate circuit. Let There Be Light is an uproariously inept yet creepily paranoid celebration of one particular faith ultimately more fixated on ISIS than Jesus.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss atheist talk shows, heathen book parties and near-death paparazzi.
