T.M.S.: Benevolent Misanthrope: T.M.S.: 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.

Seriously. I've seen it.

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.


Um...Saved at age 5 because he wanted more out of life? HOW THE FARK DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU WANT OUT OF LIFE WHEN YOU ARE FIVE???

Bloodcorn: 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.

/Hardcore atheist now.


I grew up in this kind of church too. I could never get into it. I don't know if I had a natural immunity, on what, but I just could never buy into it. Eventually, I managed to create my own non-Christian cult and had those sorts of experiences, but even then there was a part in the back of my head that knew I was playacting.

Now I'm a hardcore atheist. But leading a cult was kinda fun, even if it was a bit of a sausage fest.

phant0m51: I have an ex co-worker that I actually had to explain to him that 'Speaking in tongues' isn't real, and that the people were just making words and shiat up.


As someone who was raised in a charismatic church, I think it's more along the lines of self-imposed neurosis than deliberate fraud.

crazy_gaijin: As someone who was raised in a charismatic church, I think it's more along the lines of self-imposed neurosis than deliberate fraud.


It's not a neurosis, but it's likely a combination of hypnotism and learned behavior. Nobody really knows why causes glossolalia, but they do know that it doesn't involve the language centers of the brain. My guess? Through group hypnosis people find the "switch" to turn back on the language-assimilation parts of the brain. They revert back to baby-talk. Honestly, if one could bottle that without the religious fervor, it'd be a great way to pick up vocabulary.

I was raised as a Catholic. Started dating a chick that went to a "life church" or some such crap. A friend of hers was a youth minister so we go to the Living Word church to watch him do his thing.
I volunteered to go, with the expectation of getting some later that night.
The kids are in some room upstairs while the adults are downstairs doing their thing. Unfortunately we have to go upstairs, even though I'm like 30 years old, to see this dude.
I stood in the back of the room, absolutely stunned. Some band starts playing and this freak starts "preaching". All the kids start flailing around and waving their arms. A few were on the ground doing the funky chicken. This goes on for an hour.
I had seen this sort of thing on TV and found it to be ridiculous but to see it in person is just...I can't describe it. It was absurd.
I'm glad I went though. I can always look back at the experience and laugh.

So, you're not really concerned about people being mistreated or insulted. You're concerned about the fact that you were in that video, or one much like it. Be honest and admit that this is self interest and not altruism.

I didn't need to look back at my experience to laugh. I laughed so hard when I saw it the first time at my childhood church, that I was afraid to ever return.

There was woman in church, you could use her to set your watch. Every Sunday at the same exact time she'd go off in glossolalia and then drop to the floor. She would then get up and deliver the "prophecy" she was given. Once in awhile, someone would "interpret" her prophecy for her, and she always seemed rather annoyed by this.

During my teen years, the only reason I went was because I was in the music ministry, and in all fairness- our music ministry was pretty rockin'. I rocked out every Sunday.

Yeah, I figured as much. The girlfriends friend was a youth minister type. Meaning he was the older dude in charge of the youngsters. Come to think of it, the girlfriend WAS about 10 years younger than me. Pretty sweet deal, actually.

T.M.S.: 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?)


Glad you asked.

The footage of the pastors guilt tripping children who are 4 and 5 years old, telling them what sin filled horrible people they are and making them have emotional breakdowns. Then claiming that they are the only ones who can show them the way to salvation and light etc. I have a huge problem with manipulating the psyche of children who for the most part, are mentally unable to objectify if what they are being subjected too or not, jives with true morality or is some kind of hypocritical horseshiat being forced upon them.

I know this life because I was brought up in it. For some reason, even at a very young age something in my heart said "Something these people are trying to force on me isn't right" and I ended up getting away from that lifestyle. I turned out pretty ok, although there were a few longer lasting issues I had to hammer out in early adulthood.

T.M.S.: 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.


We must have been watching different movies. Cause in the Jesus Camp I watched, there was a scene of a little girl who felt God talk to her and told her to go minister to a lady in a bowling alley. There was also a part where they put tape over the children's mouths with "Life" written on them. Or the part where the pastor lady called into the radio show to try and convince people that their way of doing things was a-ok.

Their beliefs are stupid. They should acknowledge that and stop this crap because it leads to extremism. Next thing you know they will be stoning people to death or suicide bombing. Either way they are lying to their children from the get go and this angered me when I grew up and realized god doesn't exist and the bible is a fairy tale.
