The average IQ is 100 which means that for everyone with a typical farker's level of intelligence -there is one of them. They believe in the cell phone spirits and speak in tongues.

Those people have major issues. I am sorry to say it but that shows deeply problematic lives.

And for the record I never saw anything wrong with the people portrayed in Jesus Camp. Most of those folks were pretty well adjusted and just wanted to raise their kids in a particular way. (watch it again if you disagree)

But holy craps! This video showes some major sickness.

Once was enough, and I wholeheartedly disagree. The folks in Jesus Camp are no different from these, they just manifest in different ways. These people are what the Jesus Camp kids will be when they grow up.

Which part of Jesus Camp exactly did you find so distressing? All I saw was parents trying to raise their kids in a particular way. (a way I thought odd but who am I to judge?)

There was no point in that entire movie when anyone ever tried to influence or condem another person outside the church illustrated in the film. Not a single time did that happen. The people were totaly in to their own thing and seemd fine leaving the rest of the world alone.

Also, the Bush cutout scene was obviously a setup by the movie producers. Not that it matters because again it was just people having their own reaction.

All I ask is to be left alone.

Because People in power are Stupid: The average IQ is 100

People of "average" intelligence are about 50% of the population, and the range is generally defined from 90 to 110. So "average" ain't really necessarily so hot. That's if you even believe that IQ tests measure much more than how well you take IQ tests. Which I don't. And I would have done better if they weren't all watching me and judging me. But I'm going to show them someday. Then they'll be sorry.

typical farker's level of intelligence

Oops.

They believe in the cell phone spirits and speak in tongues.

Self-deluded and stupid are not necessarily synonymous. I have met some reasonably high-IQ charismatic Christians. (Snake handling, writhing around on the floor, foaming at the mouth and babbling.) They have somehow managed to partition their minds and lives so that they are capable of this contradiction that would cause my brain to leap out of my skull and hide in the corner.

This is the reason that I always went for the "born agains" in collage. The women always put out on the first date if you used a few code words. It got so I actually started feeling sorry for them after a while.

Not that I stopped, but I did have some slight twinges of guilt from time to time.

They are all preprogrammed to go into this whole rapture routine on roughly the same sequence of words. Hypnosis that is reinforced every Sunday and during bible "study".

I have seen this before. It's a reward cycle - you have this (frankly utterly bizarre) behavior which persons in perceived authority reward you for. Other people see you being rewarded for - whatever that young woman was doing, and monkey sees and monkey does.
I'd be curious to see footage of the preceding eight days. If only to witness the esclating curve of insanity.

At Jesus Camp, they teach kids to use hysteria instead of reason.

I hear you. I'm not catholic, but I'm glad my faith does not involve that sort of thing - or at least it is extremely extremely rare. Members of other faiths often complain that our sacrament services are "way too boring, and businesslike" and wonder why we arent more like the "happy clappy" churches.

Im going to go with ThePuceGuardian's theory. She probably feels that sort of outburst is "expected" or "desirable" or "shows spirituality" or something.

Now, I freely admit I've seen insane people in my church - just like any swath of society. Ive seen people testify that they were getting married to elvis and we "were all invited", or that they had an "actual photograph of Abraham", and we let them say their thing.

But when "elvis lady" sat down, our bishop took the stand and calmy said "I dont know what to say after that.. other than 'I'm all shook up'"

You have to have a sense of humor, when people go off like that.

(Or, you could decided that all religion is insane, and that all religiously minded people are "sheeple", that all religions are equal, and pat yourself on the back for mastering the meaning of life and obtaining peace and happiness at such a young age)

This kind of thing can be dangerous for certain types of people. I know because I used to be part of a church that practiced these sorts of things. Due to a lot of things that would require me to go all Tolstoy on you, I'll skip the background; let it suffice to say that due to some things that happened through my younger years, I was severely depressed as a teenager. I had a form of Dissociative Identity Disorder. I didn't have multiple personalities, but I was so unhappy I would create stories and scenarios (lies) that made my life livable for me. The scary thing is that, and i'll bold this for significance, It got to where I didn't know which stories i told actually happened, and which I made up. To this day, I honestly cant tell you which ones are which, except from talking to others who were there.

I went to a southern baptist church camp. I was miserable, and VERY lonely. I wanted companionship more than anything else in the world. The preachers go on and on about how if you do Gods will and are a "good christian" you will be rewarded.

I "found jesus" one year while i was there. they told us that the "Lord God" was there, and he was talking to those among us who needed him.

queue dissociative disorder.

I never "heard voices," but I convinced myself that God was talking to me, and that if i just did what these people ("He") wanted, i would be happy. I wanted to be a youth minister, or a pastor. I became active in the church and everyone thought I was going to be the next Billy Grahm (i'm a very good public speaker, and because i've lied so much, I am VERY good at manipulating people, and detecting their manipulations and lies)

Eventually my depression worsens, because it is undiagnosed, and untreated, and i become pre-suicidal.

queue therapy and treatment.

Now I have this huge personal struggle over what my religious beliefs are, because I'm not sure if i made the whole damn "come to jesus" experience up, or if it "really happened"

I'm not saying these organizations purposefully prey on the mentally ill, but the mentally ill are DEFINITELY more susceptible to this crap.

Crocodilly_Pontifex:


Hmmmm, I might have had the same problem... but it worked the opposite way for me. I'm not sure exactly how old I was at the time... parents divorced about the time I was 5, but this was before that.... I remember it pretty clearly.

Dad was Baptist, he'd read us the bible pretty regularly, but this time I was getting the bible read for something I had done... I don't remember what that was... And I'm not sure which story he told this time - though I'm sure it was about Jesus or something. What I do remember is my dad ending his sermon and snapping the bible closed, then asking me; "Son, you know that voice in your head that tells you when you're doing something wrong?" I was shocked. I couldn't believe he was talking about it - I thought I was the only one who could hear it. And at that moment I wanted more than anything to know what that voice was. So I nodded my head and listened intently as my father continued; "You need to listen to that voice.... because that's the Holy Spirit guiding you." And as soon as he said that the voice in my head said; "He's wrong." I haven't been the same since.

So the other day I was feeling the fire (I was blitzed), so I wandered outside, grabbed a lady's cell phone (as well as a few other things, amirite?), and blitzed the cell phone. Well what a surpise I heard (new window)on the other end! Can you imagine?

I grew up going to this kind of church. I danced, cried, and got "slain in the spirit." The techniques these faith healers use (pulsing music; repetitive chanting; speaking softly, then suddenly loudly; touching people's heads) are similar to the techniques used by stage hypnotists. Makes me sick and sad.

Whatever it is that weakened your mind, they'll use it to make you their pawn.

Religion is the Opiate of the Masses.

when people see their reality crumbling around them (USA) they become more and more religious.

As far as I recall, they weren't worshiping the cutout of Dubya, they were intensely praying to it. Doesn't make it any less creepy (new window).

No, what scared me more was how these people were forcing those kids to think in terms of right wing political talking points ("Raise up righteous judges!") and using them as props in conservative political protests (tape over the kids' mouths with "Life" written on them). It's terrifying how these people basically describe Palestinian child camps as brainwashing and then use those same tactics on their own kids without a shred of irony.

Placebo FTW.

It doesn't bother me. See, I believe that the majority of humans are incredibly stupid. If they are flipping out inside a church, that's one less moronic person outside in the general public annoying the hell out of me.
