There have already been quite a few posts about this. But now this horrifying movie is out on DVD. Everyone who hasn’t yet seen this movie should rent it. We all need to be informed, be aware that millions of zombied-out robotic Evangelical drones are out there, and they're champing at the bit to “reclaim America for Jesus.”
The movie is pretty grim, although some of it looks more like a bad Saturday Night Live skit. (Here are a few links.) Whatever your favorite drug is, this flick will probably drive you to it — so maybe watching this movie will end up being enjoyable after all.
The movie centers around a summer “Jesus Camp” in North Dakota. (“How I spent my summer vacation...”) It seems to be mostly for children ten and under. Like child molesters, gung ho Evangelists are anxious to zero in on impressionable young children and take full advantage of them.
We've all seen those 1950s documentaries that show Chinese and Russian children being indoctrinated by the Communists. They look like a bunch of miniature robots, reciting phrases in unison. Some of the scenes from Jesus Camp are like that, and some are even worse. Instead of just standing there parroting their lines, these Christian kids are really into it. They're jumping up and down, dancing, sobbing, shouting and speaking in tongues. Creepy isn't the word.
If you’ve seen Syriana, Jesus Camp might remind you of that Islamic school where children were being indoctrinated and programmed and trained to become future terrorists and suicide bombers.
The woman in charge of Jesus Camp seemed to be really caught up in all the shouting and tongue-speaking and fire and brimstone. But she was also very candid about purposely seeking out young children for early indoctrination. She said that by the time they're 7, 8 or 9 their learning patterns are set. I half expected her to say “eight is too late.”
She was talking about the growing power of this movement, and she said “extreme liberals will be shaken right down to their foundations when they hear about this.” She also said “animal rights activists, eat your hearts out,” whatever that’s supposed to mean. I can't remember which line in the Bible says to abuse animals, or that God doesn’t want humans to have compassion for animals.
Whenever global warming got mentioned, it was with a roll of the eyes and a tone of “what are those wacky liberals gonna dream up next?” The biggest problems facing America are homosexuals, abortion, extreme liberals (those 2 words are usually spoken together) and the fact that God has been kicked out of our schools. Nobody in the movie ever mentioned anything about forgiveness, compassion or helping others, and I seem to remember the Bible mentioning those things from time to time.
On a lighter note: Jesus Camp was filmed before Ted Haggard got busted and outed. There he is, preaching his fiery sermons. There are some other scenes where he's talking with some of the Jesus Camp children. Kinda makes you wonder what Haggard is really thinking and fantasizing while he's kneeling down in front of these kids, gazing into their eyes and preaching the Gospel.
Whether you like it (or know about it) or not, the Army of God is out there. (That’s how they actually refer to themselves in the movie.) They're out there, they're expanding and they want to take over YOUR life. Check out the movie. Forewarned is fore-armed.
