Is anyone on EST watching this documentary on A&E called "Jesus Camp"?

I just came across this doc. and this woman that runs this fundamentalist pendecostal religious camp for kids actually said "I want to see children laying down their lives for god". This b...h is crazy.

  • And HOLY CRAP! It just went to commercial.

    Those people are BRAINWASHING those children.

    And here I was thinking that we as human beings were becoming more TOLERANT towards people that are different.

    "This means war?"

    "Dead churches?"

  • What I find funny is this camp is in a place called Devils Lake.

  • This is one of those cases where the law needs to step in IMO.  These kids are being brainwashed and turned into dangerous people. 

    It makes you wonder what kind of parent sends their kid to something like that.

  • I've seen it and it's so disturbing on so many levels. One, it disturbs me that anyone is sending their kids to camps like that. Two, it disturbs me that I was one of those kids. Every summer I spent a week having my head filled with that nonsense. Thankfully there were a lot of people at the camp not buying it because it was made up of several area youth groups from small towns where everyone goes to youth group because there's nothing else to do. There were a few hard core kids but most of us were either non-believers or less hard core christians.

  • This makes me absolutely sick. These kids are brainwashed beyond belief. There's no reason kids that young should have to spend their lives worrying about the problems of the world like that. These kids are going to grow up with absolutely no grasp of reality. These people are going to DANGEROUS when they grow up! "This means war"??? When the F---- did Jesus preach that??? Sorry, but I have no tolerance for people like this. It makes me cry for the kids.
