Jesus Camp

A documentary on Evangalists. I saw clips of it on the internet, and was quite literally jaw-droppingly horrified. American children as young as three are rambling nonsense, a little nine year old girl ages as she speaks of spreading the word of the Lord to adults. Watching her I felt like I was seeing a 35 year old person talk. I felt like telling her - "You're nine years old! Go play with your toys, and read Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton for fuck's sake!"

Here's a few links. Be prepared to see some really fucked up stuff -

Google Video - Jesus Camp
Jesus Camp - Nine year old Rachael
and.....Here's the trailer!

Watching this made my skin crawl.

No better than the little kids swaying over their low desks as they learn the quran by heart (does it really matter how much of it they can understand at that age?) in the Madrasas of Pakistan. "Catch 'em young "seems to be the new mantra of the fundamentalists whichever religion they belong to!
