This review is from: Jesus Camp [DVD] (DVD)
There isn't a single swear word and no nudity or violence in this film and yet this is possibly the most disturbing and horrific piece of cinema I've ever witnessed.
Encapsulates everything that is wrong with fundamentalist religion, in this case Christianity. You will never witness a more wrenching hypocrisy than the female 'teacher' of the camp telling the kids that the enemy knows that kids are vulnerable and impressionable and that's why they're teaching them these things now to 'protect' them. Or the image of the parent dragging a toddler's arm into the air in response to a question that presumably required an affirmative answer in the parent's warped mind.
This film is essential (if somewhat stomach-churning) viewing in order to understand a part of American society that is becoming increasingly influential in decisions regarding the US's (already overly enthuastic) warmongering making these people potentially far more of a threat to world peace than the likes of the Taliban or Al-Qaeda could ever hope to be.

What a ridiculous comment, Mr/Ms Ledward, to make on such a reasonable review and reaction to the horrific scenes of mental cruelty inflicted upon these poor innocent children. If you'd read Dave Payne's review again, without getting so het up, you'll see he was referring to the disgusting behaviour of the adults featured in this film, not the children, when he says they are more dangerous than Al Qaeda. With people such as these having the current president's ear, I can totally see his point. Also, your comments regarding keeping the "peace" in Afghanistan and Iraq are nothing short of idiotic: the death toll for Iraq alone stands around 655,000 more than would have died if "our" invasion had not occurred (source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/cont

ledward you are a shocking idiot. I think you will find that the US/Israel forces and their allies have killed vastly more people than the taliban or al-qaeda, not to mention a large amount of middle eastern violence has throughout history been backed by the US. But you wouldn't understand any of that becuase you believe in jesus so you have a clear bias against things called facts.

Ledward..................you need psychiatric help.
The only 'evidence' of a god, is in your stone-age mind and those who share your childish beliefs.
I mean, would you put YOUR son on a fire to prove your love to a psychotic bloody lunatic?.

Wow. 40% of children in the US have been indoctrinated into a poisonous religion that stifles their ability to think for themselves. All the more reason why as many thinking folk as possible should view this film and view the dangers of bullying and indoctrinating children in the name of "religion".
