Another point that should be mentioned is that “the evident presence of religion at every level of American society” (Berger 79). Indeed, in spite of the Establishment clause, the contemporary American society is not fully secular as it is heavily influenced by religion, to be more specifically Christianity. That is why Muslims in the US feel that they are oppressed to a certain extent as they belong to a religious minority. Indeed, in the prison which was shown in the movie, only a handful of prisoners were Muslims. This shows that Christianity occupies a dominant place and might be considered to be a religion that is implied by default. In other words, at the present moment, the government does not support any particular religion, but Christianity was able to develop the closest relationship with it.Having examined all the points, one should mention that the movie in question is great since it addresses the issue of religion in America from a rather interesting angle. First of all, the believers that are being shown are prison inmates. Islam in America.
