Ruining my Saturday night by watching "Jesus Camp"
I don't know why I do this to myself. My heart breaks for all of the American home-schooled kids who are being taught that creationism is the truth, global warming is a lie, and so on. So, I go and watch a documentary about all of that on Netflix.

I've never seen myself as being an anti-theist. But, brainwashing kids and tormenting them with images of hell is so cruel and so worthy of our ridicule.

Have you guys seen it?

Yes, I have. It's disturbing at the very least.

Cried through half that damn movie. So heartbreaking No Sadcryface

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

One of the most disturbing things I've ever seen.

I couldn't finish it. I just thought it was extremely crazy and I really didn't feel like subjecting myself to torture.

RE: Ruining my Saturday night by watching "Jesus Camp"
Whenever I'm asked "What's the scariest movie you've ever seen?" I invariably answer "Jesus Camp." Anything from the usual horror genre has nothing on "Jesus Camp."

That crazy-ass harridan that runs that place depicted in the movie should be charged with child abuse.

There is no "I" in "team" but there is a broken and mixed up "me."

I fully expected to laugh my way through it. I'm genuinely choked up.

Never seen it but it sounds awful.

If you're an atheist that says "who cares if others believe in some imaginary god, what harm does it do?" (Not saying you are) This movie will change your mind. So sad Sad
