Tags: Camp, Carl, Jesus, Sagan, vs.
- Jesus camp, with the exception of a few is very, very white.
- This indoctrination is nothing less than equivlanet to the indoctrination of white supremist youth or nazi youth.
- the male preacher was South African, and since his country has let go of the hate and fear that allowed apartheid, it seems he has a found a new home here in the US. I am ashamed to call him a fellow South African.
- Andrew - this is child abuse
This make me want to fight harder for reason and free will. Never be silent people.
Man, I shed a tear everytime I see or (moreso) hear Carl Sagan. He is, for me, about as close to an atheist prophet as you can get (Though he didn't seem to understand the difference between agnostic and atheist; hey we're all flawed).
He had such a power of science and could portray it in almost a poetic form. The pale blue dot speech should be taught in science AND english classrooms.
Okay so last night I asked my STAUNCH Christian friend what she thought of Jesus Camp, and how she felt watching these kids being fed hatred instead of curiosity and love. She says... *drumroll*, "this world is indeed evil. There is a need for us to teach them what is right and wrong. We Christians are concerned with not only this lifetime but all of eternity. Besides that, you can look at it this way - Jesus Camp doesn't indoctrinate hatred and fear into these kids, it's more like having a radical way of thought about the world."
Of course this then led to her saying she will pray for me and said I "act too smart for (my) own good" and that I should pray with her to "let my faith be stronger than all these doubts combined." It's like talking to a brick wall. Sigh.
