Colorado Springs, CO, October 13, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRWEB) Rooftop Productions announces the dates and venues for the Fall U.S. Tour of “With God On Our Side” - a film by Porter Speakman, Jr.

Porter Speakman, Jr. (Director / Producer) and Rev. Stephen Sizer (Author “Zion’s Christians Soldiers”) will be at each event and there will be a time for Q & A and discussion after each screening.

"With God On Our Side" takes a look at the theology of Christian Zionism, which teaches that because the Jews are God's chosen people, they have a divine right to the land of Israel. Aspects of this belief system lead some Christians in the West to give uncritical support to Israeli government policies, even those that privilege Jews at the expense of Palestinians, leading to great suffering among Muslim and Christian Palestinians alike and threatening Israel's security as a whole.
