Jesus Camp


ABC coverage

ABC coverage 2

When I saw this, I thought to myself, "Oh, Jesus!"

I think this is illegal. First, being a church and encouraging kids to worship a picture of President Bush is illegal because they are using a church entity--which doesn't pay taxes--to act as a Political Action Committee--which should. This is a clear abuse of the tax penal code. The IRS should crack down on them.

Second, this is child abuse. Telling a child that all non-Christians are going to hell (especially when there is not a shred of evidence to the existence of hell, heaven, God, or Satan) is a sick, depraved fear tactic that doesn't belong around kids. Kids are innocent, and they have the right to live in a world that allows them to learn to think freely and to be raised in an environment that empowers them.

The third clip would have been funny were it not so sick and evil. That old preacher lady says, "Had it been in the Old Testament, Harry Potter would have been put to death!" because, of course, warlocks are evil. Incidentally, even thought that second male "evangelist" is supposedly the moderate one, I think he's a sick puppy too.

These evangelicals are misguided people who are committing a crime. In this case, I truly believe that the government should step in and stop the abuse. Unfortunately, our Theocrat in the White House has his faith based initiatives which support this garbage.

I'm hoping everyone votes in November to lay down the infrastructure so we can stop this sick abuse.
