Okay, so I am attempting once again, to make it through the "Jesus Camp" documentary... However I just can't watch more than a few minutes at a time- it bothers me to much...
This question comes out of one of the earlier moments in the film where one of the women is talking about how important it is to focus on converting children. Now, I have NO ISSUE with those of you who want to raise your kids in your church - that's fine, they are your kids. But let me tell you, if anyone came on to my kids playground and started to preach to them (as she talks about doing) I'm going in to attack mode. Just as she, I'm sure, would if someone were trying to influence her children in a different direction than what she is teaching...
So, my question is what do you all think? Is it an okay thing to put your focus on children, regardless of what their own parents may think, believe or teach?

No it's not okay, I would never try to convert anyone. I wouldn't want anyone I didn't know preaching to my kids about any belief system, Christian or non Christian.
When I was young some lady came up to me in a dentist office and asked if I believed in Jesus. Since I'm Catholic I said Yes! She then asked me to read a card about having Jesus in my heart... and I'll be saved.
My mom saw this lady but was busy with talking to the receptionist so she didn't know what she was doing. Looking back I just think its so silly and insulting to God that she thought some 7 year old kid reading off a card, was going to save someone, especially when I didn't understand the whole meaning behind what I was reading. I know she left feeling good about herself but really it's just so ridiculous she believed that this was what God wanted her to do.
