Jesus Camp Trailer

  • I saw a couple of TV reports about that movie....Looks like brainwashing a sect to me! Freaky! Do those kids even know what they're talking about?

  • That's definitely on the 'must-download' list (since we all know it doesn't have a shepherd's chance in Nazareth of being shown in Dubai. Although for some reason, Passion is A-Ok).

    This will be an interesting film because it's something you read about incessantly - the loco evangelicals - but never really get a chance to see up close. I also heard that the people you see in the trailer have watched the film and actually approve of how they are being portrayed, so its not like the film makers are doing a hack job on them.

    Having said that, what would interest me even more would be to see the Muslim equivalent - and not the sanitised Syriana version, but a real proper madrassa, or even better , a jihadi camp.

    The contrasts would be fascinating.

  • Funny, in a really really creepy way. The world is going mad.

    Luckily, people grow out of it. Check out the following article, written by a blogger (Payj http://make-you-hmmm.blogspot.com/) and former Jesus Camp-er. I thought it was really funny!

  • Now, that is scary.

    Sky: that's a great link, and before I even opened it, I was wondering how many of these kids finally break free once they are old enough to make up their own minds.

    I like the affirmations and positive vibes that they try to instill in these kids (change the world), but they're using it to promote an alternative motive - religion. If they did it without the religion bit, it would be a more healthy thing.

  • Every religion has extremists, right? I dont see a problem here...except that evangelical Christians are funding Israel, correction Zionism, and are more powerful than the Jewish lobby.
