Jesus Camp

So I’ve re-subscribed to Netflix.com and have started getting all of my weird movies again. Tonight I decided to watch Jesus Camp. I was expecting to be outraged by it and I was. The brainwashing that happens to these poor kids in their households, churches, and camps is insane. Believing in God and Jesus is one thing but I believe that the movie shows how its gotten out of control.

Home Schoolers that Pledge of Allegiance to the Christian Flag and the Bible? Kids being told that if it was the in the old testament, Harry Potter would have been put to death! The lunchtime cheer “I’ve got Jesus yes I do! I’ve got Jesus how about you!” The constant breaking out in tears.  Arrgghhh!!! Not to mention the talking to and blessing of the cardboard President Bush.

Let kids grow up normally. Let them socialize with other kids in a school! Don’t brainwash. Let them hear both sides of the debate and develop their own opinion as they mature.

Overall I thought the movie was well done.  It isn’t an action packed flick, it is a documentary.  I found it very interesting.

United 93

United 93I just finished watching the movie, United 93, and I must say that it was very touching. September 11th, 2001 is a day that most won’t forget and this movie gives you a small glimpse of what some of the forgotten victims went through that day. In my mind the film was tastefully done and captured the emotion of the situation and the bravery of the situation.

If you haven’t seen United 93 yet, I would encourage you to do so.
