Atheists don’t believe in angels.
Communists don’t believe in the power of the individual.
I’m calling BS on this one.

Frank Capra got a lot of criticism over the years for the way the movie ended. Specifically, many viewers were upset that Potter was never taken to task for what he had done with the money that eventually drove George Bailey to despair.
Interestingly, this particular point is what made the movie absolutely religious at its core. The whole point of faith in God is that reward and punishment are ultimately meted out in the afterlife, regardless of what happens here on earth.

To be honest, when I viewed the film again after not having seen it for many years, I was shocked by George’s yelling and screaming at his wife and kids. He was really abusive, and I had a hard time sympathizing with him after that.
