Final Part – Episode 4 airs this coming Monday May 30 at 10:30pm ET/PT | On Vision TV
Produced by Cogent/Benger Productions Inc.
Episode 4: The Name Of The Lord – Directed by Peter Findlay
This final episode of the spectacular 4-part series travels to the Deep South of America, where a charismatic preacher rallies the nation against the evils of homosexuality – but this Leader of the Flock coaches fatherless young men with questionable intent. Supporters dismiss the allegations of impropriety and shun the victims. The stain of accusation and lawsuits follow God’s preacher in this examination of power, persuasion and corrupted scripture.
A provocative four-part original TV series, Sex Scandals In Religion, offers viewers an unprecedented look at misbehavior manifested in four religions. The four half-hour episodes – produced by Toronto based Cogent/Benger Productions Inc. – takes an intimate, compelling and emotional look at the dark secrets that lurk inside houses of the spirit.
Sex Scandals In Religion looks beyond the infamous and well-publicized sex abuse scandals in the Catholic Church to stunning stories of sexual misfeasance in four other world religions. In Buddhism, a world-renowned Rinpoche is accused by several women of sexual exploitation; in Islam, the actions of zealots leads to the religiously justified rape of students and gays; in Orthodox Jewry, the mechanisms of justice are obscured in case involving a rabbi and young boys; and in Christian Evangelism, a homophobic black bishop in Atlanta is accused of the serial molestation of fatherless boys.
Sex Scandals in Religion is Produced by Christopher Sumpton and Robin Benger. Directors include Alan Mendelsohn, Robin Benger, Debi Goodwin, and Peter Findlay.
