(That’s one way to drum up publicity for a film that no one really wants to see: act like it’s too toxic for your tastes.) Perhaps there will be another documentary in a few years about what inspired Harris to leave the faith.Hopefully the distributor will be a company that understands even the perspectives of documentary subjects can change over time.That was evident in a documentary he produced called in which Harris spoke with people who grew up on his ideas — and talked about the harm his ideas caused — without ever saying those ideas were wrong.(It wasn’t until late last year when that began to change — publicly anyway.) Well, now there’s another twist.Courtship rules -- such as men and women not talking to one another -- were “well-intentioned wisdom” not found in Scripture, Allen says.Harris tried to walk back some of his pro-abstinence rhetoric.
