Jesus Camp Scared the Crap Out of Me
I watched Jesus Camp today at my boyfriend's house, and it honestly scared me to death. I cannot believe that people are actually targeting children like that, indoctrinating them into the Christian faith at such an early age. It's one thing to teach about Christianity, it's another to recruit children into believing in a fairy tale.
One of my favorite parts was when the crazy bitch Evangelical leader (responsible for all of the child recruitment) talked about how much she hated how all of the Islamic extremists were recruiting their children to fight for them, putting grenades in their hands and such. Um...isn't she doing the exact same thing? She may not be shoving a grenade into the kids' hands that she preaches to, but during the one scene when she had all the kids yelling and screaming about the war in America that they're all a part of and that they all need to be ready to fight in it and defend God. How is that any different?
Ugh. Evangelism should be outlawed. Brainwashing children to believe in something that is a fairy tale is completely insane.
