Jesus Camp

Boy! This is scary. Just what we need.
Child indoctrination just like our friends in the deserts of the far East are doing.

Jesus Camp Synopsis

A growing number of Evangelical Christians believe there is a revival underway in America that requires Christian youth to assume leadership roles in advocating the causes of their religious movement.

JESUS CAMP, directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, directors of the critically acclaimed The Boys of Baraka, follows Levi, Rachael, and Tory to Pastor Becky Fischer's "Kids on Fire" summer camp in Devil's Lake, North Dakota, where kids as young as 6 years-old are taught to become dedicated Christian soldiers in "God's army." The film follows these children at camp as they hone their "prophetic gifts" and are schooled in how to "take back America for Christ." The film is a first-ever look into an intense training ground that recruits born-again Christian children to become an active part of America's political future.

This is a long film, and you have to sit through a couple of ads, but hang in there.There is a lot here worth watching.  These poor kids are being brainwashed in the truest sense of the word. If this is not child abuse, I don't know what is.
If you can't sit through it & I don't blame you if you can't, this is a pretty good outline of the film:

Surviving 'Jesus Camp

Read the comments.
While this is probably old history to many people, watching it was a new experience for me. The camp was shut down following the negative reactions caused by the film.

Pastor will shut down controversial kids camp:
I hope there aren't more people doing things like this & that the pastor has retired permanently.


  1. Just more of the same. Ask any 17th century Pequot how much fun proselytization can be. We have met the enemy and he is Puritans. Scary and saddening.

  2. Nothing to really worry about just a training camp for Amway diamond directs.
    I'm pretty sure this represents all Christians. The goal is to promote a theocracy where if you bugger your neighbor someone may look at you with disapproval and Catholics won't have to pay for third trimester abortions and you can keep your guns. Of course we will all miss the porn but just think how much more you will enjoy the Sears catalogue!

    1. There are militants everywhere pushing either religion or atheism into the minds of their children and indoctrinating them before they have the education and maturity to decide for themselves. Pity.
      Budde! I sense a bit of sarcasm!
      So is Amway a Christian sect? Perhaps they should sell firearms. Wait a minute. Why don't we do it? What a great idea! I always wanted to start my own church, and I could also increase my gun collection. Tax free? It's a no brainer. Can I sign you up?

    2. What do you expect? They have a woman pastor! Heretics!

  3. Interesting co=incidence, I just watched a documentary about Jonestown, 1978.
