CPAC 2014: Persecuted, the Christian Persecution Drama That You’ll All Be Talking About

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—The sponsors of this year's CPAC earn the right to see their names advertised in every large room or hallway: One America, a news network announced at last year's conference with a pledge to be a "platform," not an impediment, to conservatives; Tea Party Patriots, the venerable (five years old last month) coalition of activists that's only recently launched a PAC; and the film Persecuted, a fable about a Christian preacher who's ruined by the government as part of a war on religion.

The trailer plays at every other break in the main ballroom's action.
