Rob ‘Meathead’ Reiner Trashed For New Movie On The ‘Danger’ Of Christian Nationalism | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Critics slammed actor and director Rob Reiner after he announced his newest project - a film called "God & Country" - decrying the alleged clear and present "danger" presented by Christian Nationalism.

    Reiner shared the trailer for the film, which "explores right-wing religious extremism and the danger it poses to both the United States and Christianity itself," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    "Christian Nationalism is not only a danger to our Country, it's a danger to Christianity itself. Our film will be coming to theaters In February. Watch the trailer here," Reiner posted via X.

    But critics viewed the film as proof that Reiner "doth protest too much," arguing that the "documentary" was just a convenient excuse for him to attack both Christians and conservatives in one fell swoop.

    "Is this like a funny Spinal Tap mockumentary? If so it's brilliant," The Babylon Bee's Kyle Mann posted on X.

    Students For Life President Kristan Hawkins noted that one of the film's "villains" was Scott Smith, the Virginia father who was arrested for "disrupting" a school board meeting in Loudoun County because the school had failed to address the sexual assault of his daughter.

    "Showing the arrest of the dad at that school board meeting because his daughter was sexually assaulted, as if *HE* is the bad guy, is a WILD narrative choice," she posted.

    "Avowed atheist Rob Reiner: 'I'm looking for Christians to interview in my documentary slamming Christians.' David French, Phil Vischer, Russell Moore: 'Say no more, fam,'" Mann added.

    "It's hilarious to me how terrified Leftists are of normal Christians who dare to take their faith outside the walls of the church," Joel Berry said.

    The Federalist's Sean Davis weighed in as well, saying, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? The answer to the last question, at least for David French and Russell Moore, appears to be 'a cameo in a Meatball fever dream masquerading as a documentary.'"
