Bill Moyers and Liberation Theology in Central America

Gene Shalit I am not.  Having watched the first of Bill Moyers' series "God and Politics" broadcast last December 9th on Public Television, I do believe some comments are in order. According to the press release, the 90 minute program "will describe how upheaval in Central America pits mainstream U.S. Christians against fundamentalists in a theological and political duel with historic consequences. Moyers will cite as an example the Methodist church, currently wrenched by conflicts over missionaries who support either Nicaragua's Sandinista government or rival contras across the border in Honduras.
