I am not anti-religion, anti-god or anti church. Religion really doesn’t play a role in my life and it does not matter to me if it plays a role in yours. If religion is a part of your life then that is great. If it helps to create an atmosphere of love/respect for all of mankind, regardless of their beliefs and if it is not used as a tool of judgment, even better! However it really disturbs me to see films like Jesus Camp. Jesus Camp is a documentary that depicts the lives and rituals of many Evangelical Christians in the United States. The film is full of brainwashed individuals who have dedicated their lives to converting non Evangelical’s, teaching their children that global warming does not exist and reinforcing their conservative political views through the church. The main focus of the film is on an annual summer camp where young Evangelical Christian children spend part of their summer being brainwashed, praying over cardboard cut outs of former President Bush and being told that all children in the Middle East kill for their gods, among many other disturbing manipulation tactics.
Take a look at Part I of the film below
The documentary is great. You can rent it at your local library for a buck (that’s the hook up!), your local video store or watch it online for free (that’s the best hook up!).

After viewing Jesus Camp it became apparent why somethings in our country are so fucked up and why they will most likely never change. If this post has got you down, then cheer up! We have Evangelical Christians to thank for awesome music videos like this:
