Considering the manner in which many big-name lifelong Catholics behave these days, what real difference does it make that Mr. Newt is a recent convert to content of the documentary of John Paul II? Are you trying to say that he will leave something out because he’s not been steeped his whole life? Mr. Newt was a historian before he was ever a politician, I would tend to think he can cover historical information with competence. His conversion may be due to his interest in the late Pope and perhaps this will make it an even better product than would have been produced by some other Catholic who also has name recognition and the money to do so.
I’m concerned that this project of Newt’s is mainly to feed Newt’s ego than just to tell a decent documentary of Pope John Paul II.
