So... I just got done watching the Jesus Camp documentary that A&E did. One word: scary. Those poor, poor children being robbed of their innocence and youth. I am terrified for these kids... and terrified at the adults they may become.

The lunatic camp leader reminds me of a child molester. She's preying on children in a way that rivals actual physical abuse. How dare she make these kids cry and scare the shit out of them. Wasn't Jesus love? Why on earth would you call them names and terrify them with the thought of hell... then FORCE them up in front of all their peers to show how horrible they are? And to top that all off - wash their sins away with a fucking bottle of Nestle water. Seriously? And how dare the parents allow their children to be treated this way? You people make me sick and should be sterilized....

"Sometimes I don't always believe what the bible says... and it makes me feel guilty" That was a CHILD... The poor thing is on the brink of using his brain and they won't let him. So sad.

The leader's presentations are sick and twisted. Using Ken and Barbie as Adam and Eve? C'mon... And getting excited over the "bloody" font to use for sin equals death? Fucking awful.

They also can't watch or read Harry Potter.. seriously? It's fucking fiction! You let them read your bible nonsense, why not let them be kids and use their imagination in a good way. No, instead you make them imagine dying a horrible death because they told a lie.

Amg.. I'm so sad and angry right now that I can't even pull my thoughts together, lol...

And another thing, if you want to end abortion, why not give every opportunity for children to be raised in loving households. Be willing to let kids grow up with gay, straight, atheist, believing families... equally. Until then, I don't want to hear SHIT about ending abortion.

I was going to say that I've been wanting to see this documentary, but now I'm not so sure. =\

That movie is the kind of thing that makes me want to be an active atheist. Millions of kids getting brainwashed... It is pure evil.

Watched this today, arghh so frustrating to watch. Such brilliant young kids that care about others deeply and that have great capacity to learn and they are being manipulated, what a shame. It is sad to see that no one has their own thought without first comparing it to their teaching from the bible or from their church's doctrine. Like when the boy mentions Harry Potter it is like a taboo, they do not discuss it so that they do not even know why they think he is bad. I tell my daughter about Darwin vaguely at this point, but I do not gasp if she mentions god, there is no unmentionable, no limit to her thoughts and musings. I do not mind that she wishes to pretend there is a Santa or an Easter Bunny.
And as for the abortion brain washing oh dear these children have no way of understanding the many issues involved in abortion, the adults here do not seem even to understand or have any empathy for women who make this choice what chance have these children to understand the many difficult issues wrapped up in this decision. And they imagine the worst in the way that abortion is described to them as if someone has come along a killed one of their friends, I was outraged by this, I even felt manipulative watching in a way because I feel so sad for these children and in a way the adults involved as well because they to are deluded.

The part that really bothered me was with the lil mullet kid in his kitchen doing school work with his mom. They were talking about global warming and stuff, and he said something along the lines of "its not a big deal because its only gone up a little bit." The pure ignorance of that statement made me sick. Sure ocean temps have only gone up a bit, but considering the ENTIRE ocean has gone up in such a short time should be slightly concerning. There were some other science related stupidities in that part that made me want to cry. Science is science, you can't twist it and pull out the parts you want to believe...

but then again, chrisitans are pretty good at that kind of bullshit, arent they?

I made my mom watch this documentary because she continues to argue that religion is a good thing whether god exists or not. This documentary changed her mind. The whole thing was really disgusting. Those kids are going to grow up and be the kinds of people who shoot up abortion clinics simply because they were told that it is what god wants them to do.
