Oh Lord

Last night I watched one of the scariest movies I’ve seen in a long time. It’s called Jesus Camp. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, it’s a documentary on evangelical Christians and how they indoctrinate their children.  It really brings to light how much influence this movement is gaining, and how the line between church and state is blurring in America.  Ironically, they see no contradiction between indicting other religions and believing that this country should be a Christrian country, and the fact that the only reason they are here in the first place was to escape religious persecution: in other words, the very religious tolerance that this country was founded on is what they would gladly trade for a non-secular government.  Apparently the folks who were documented were completely OK with the documentary after it was made. For those who don’t come from this background (myself included), it may scare the jesus out of you.   Certainly scared me.
