    I was absolutely horrified when I saw Jesus Camp. How can they do it to the children?!? How is this possible? Fortunately, when I saw it, Jesus Camp had already closed. There's no justification to brainwash children! Children have to have a choice whether or not they want to...

    Wow

    It's been a couple months since I've seen it, but I remember saying "wow" a lot in disbelief as I watched it. My roommate had seen it before and decided we needed to watch it together. I'm an atheist, but I have nothing against Christianity in general (or any other...

    "Disturbing" Is the Word That Comes to Mind...

    I saw the entire thing in various segments on YouTube. Scary sh*t. These kids are so brainwashed! It's really kind of sad, in a way.... I mean, some of these kids sounded pretty intelligent, but they weren't using their intellect to think for themselves and form their own...
