"Progressives are happy to embrace church teachings when it favors their political agenda, but reject them when those teachings don't conform to their politics." =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Church teaching foes not fit into a secular (US version) of conservative vs. liberal. All sides of the ideological spectrum could be accused of only following church teaching when it's fits their political views. As a Catholic Christian who is also a political conservative this is something I struggle with. Catholic social teaching does not always follow the left/right split that the secular world sees. All this being said - Cuomo was a "cafeteria" Catholic - follow church teaching when it furthers his political ambitions (such as with capital punishment where church teaching is much more nuanced that simple sound-bites) and ignore stated doctrine (such as with abortion) when it would cost him votes.

Prediction: If (?when) this is released on DVD/Blueray it will be the #1 released of all-time.

Agreed. It's beyond reason that the apostles (who where there with Jesus) would die horrible deaths if what they knew was a lie.

It is a way to frame ones search for whether God exists or not by asking a question. There are numerous other proofs for the existence of God - The Argument from Change, The Argument from Efficient Causality, The Argument from Degrees of Perfection or The Design Argument (to name four).
