Scary Movie

I am starting to feel really sorry for the beleaguered American liberal, and all those rational American families trying to bring up their children in a country where there's stuff like this going on.

Jesus Camp The Movie, coming to a screen near you soon, will cheer you or terrify you, depending on what side of the fence you sit.

Although it's not really fair to pass judgment until I've seen the whole thing, the fact that it was voted scariest movie at the Traverse City Film Festival says a lot. From the clips I've seen I don't know if I'll be able to watch it anyway — I tend to agree with Richard Dawkins that indoctrinating children constitutes child abuse, and even the clips make deeply uncomfortable viewing.

There is one thing that the founder of Jesus Camp, Pastor Becky Fischer, is spot on about, though. She says she is doing to the children of evangelical christians only what the mullahs are doing to the children of fundamentalist muslims in madrassas.

Funny, I seem to remember being told repeatedly throughout my childhood that two wrongs don't make a right. But then again, I was dragged up by heathens.

I saw a trailer for this a couple of weeks ago (here). It did strike me as being very disturbing indeed.
