Has anyone on here seen Jesus Camp? Watch it. I want my children to make an educated and informed decision about religion. And that's IF they want any part of any religion. I refuse to brainwash them while they are growing up. I think it's sad that so many kids are brought up being forced to believe in something when they have no idea what it means. "Mommy, can I stay home today?" "NO! We're going to church! We live in a God fearing house and I won't have any sinners.....blah blah blah." And so the child goes, sits and resents what he's doing.
I don't really care if you respind. I'm not trying to be a troll here. Just frustrated that we're bringing up brainwashed masses.

I saw the show and it is so darn freaky. And as you can see with your first answer there are a lot of people who think it is perfectly fine to expose their children to environments like that. I see nothing wrong with having a child involved in your religion but please expose them to other people for goodness sakes. If they do not learn to deal with other people and other cultures that is not preparing them for anything else in life but being fearful and close minded. So what if a child grows up and decides to be of a faith that is not the same one as their parents.

There is a whole spectrum of people who raise there children in a religious home, the same with people who raise their children in a non religious homes. It's great to give your kids information and allow them them room to define their own beliefs, but by being so anti-religion you could also argue you are brainwashing them to dislike all religion. If your children decide they want religion you have to be willing to embrace that too, even if it goes againstyour own beliefs. I have not seen the movie but I'm sure it only portrays one form of extreme use of religion in a home, and that's not the way it is for most people.
