Okay! Prepare yourself! The video you are about to see is so ridiculous that you may die laughing!!! Skycomet and the makers of this video take no responsibility if that happens!!! Enjoy... Jesus Camp Gone Wild!!!
Any thoughts, or are you so braindead after that Christian brainwashing session that you can't say anything? LOL!
You're right, many of these Fundie children will remain brainwashed 'till the end of their lives... I simply refer to these people as "The Lost" because they are broken and can never be fixed, unless they fix themselves.
However, I have found that among every brainwashing program like churches and cults; their are always those intelligent enough to break free of their bonds and seek the truth for themselves.
I am happy to be one of the people smart enough to break free from the Slavery imposed upon me by the church.
The ones who doubt are our hope.
"i don't care what kind of heroes they are they're an enemy of god"
so morality is not what you do but what you believe? fuck.
this isn't funny, it is terrifying. the fact that so much evil is done by people who obviously believe that what they are doing is for the kids' good. but i guess as the saying goes "good people do good things and evil people do evil things; it takes religion for good people to do evil things."
I remember things like this happening at my church when I was a kid. I never cried or spoke in tongues or anything like the other kids and the kids in this movie, even then I knew that was crazy, but the whole experience still bothered me quite a bit.
This really is sick. That they actually think what they're doing is good.. Fuck. This literally is brainwashing. You hear that term thrown around pretty casually these days, but they are running water on sponges here. Disease-infested water. FUCK.
This makes me so sick and furious that I just HAVE to do something about it. I say fight our side of this "war" they're so hellbent on fighting and teach the kids around us, help the ones who run screaming from the Jesus camps, and spread more intelligent goodness where we find this mindless need to control.
If you haven't heard of Camp Quest already: http://www.camp-quest.org/
Camp Quest West: http://west.camp-quest.org/
If there's a location near you, volunteer. If you know any kids, or people who have kids, that would be interested, refer them. Print out flyers & ask around at work or school etc. They wanted a fucking war. I wanna fight fire with fire on this one cause I know that eventually, in a few years or a few decades, we will win. OUR life goals and philosophies are capable of being instilled in young, impressionable children WITHOUT causing permanent, life-long trauma, social crutches, mental damage..
Just rawr. I need to go sleep off my anger & disgust. (But not my conviction. I'm volunteering next time CQW opens up.)
I was sent to a camp more or less like that for a few years in a row when I was a kid (my mom didn't realize how extreme it was - she thought it was a Christian camp like prayers before bedtime, not like this - and I never really told her because I thought it was normal so I never complained). I was 7/8 and it was my experiences there that made me become an atheist at such a young age. I understand I didn't have my entire family to rebel against, just the camp, so it might have made it easier for me, but I don't understand why more kids can't see how ridiculous this is, even though they are just kids.
I forgot to mention that I also used to go along with everyone being all insane like this just so I wouldn't be chastised, and I completely faked all of that crying and thrashing and praying stuff (never did fake speaking in tongues although I did contemplate it for a while) - it makes me wonder how many of these kids are faking it, too.
