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 religion). But this just blew my mind. I was raised a Christian and even went to Church Camp one summer, but nothing was as crazy as this.

The part that really threw me was when one of the kids (and I don't remember it exactly because it's been awhile since I've seen it) was talking about how he'd been in a dark place until he found Jesus and repented. He was like 10! I don't really think a 10-year-old's had much opportunity to "live for Satan" or whatever.

And the speaking in tongues part? That can't be psychologically healthy for children. Neither can being told to worship George W.

But I did have to laugh when she blessed the PowerPoint Presentation. Wow.

The scariest part for me is that I've lived in Missouri my whole life and had no idea there was such a large evangelical following here!

Yeah, I think seeing a group of people praying to a cardboard cutout of George W. Bush might just be a sign of the apocalypse!<br />

By the way, logisticmosquito, "Jesus Camp" is a scary documentary about extreme evangelical Christians. It basically features a bunch of brainwashed little kids being led around by their psychotic youth pastor, Becky. Hilarious and disturbing at the same time.<br />
