Jesus Camp

by Jason Stotts

Today I watched one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen in my life, the movie “Jesus Camp” – a documentary about the new evangelical christian movement in America. It’s truly frightening to see radical irrationality destroying the unformed minds of children in their rabid pursuit of theocracy.

It’s not that I’m scared of physical violence on their part (I’m fairly sure their religion has a prohibition against it), but of their incredible irrationality and gross lack of any sort of epistemology. From the core of their doctrine, to their ironic pro-life movement, to their hatred of non-christians – reason seems alien to these people.

It’s frightening to think that these people are becoming involved in government and are actively trying to change policy to include the bible and exclude frivolous things like rights, freedom, and ultimately Americanism itself.

We stand at the edge of a second dark age, we must either act now or bear witness to the decline of Man.
