Jesus Camp (2006)

Tom:
Jesus Camp,2006,USA
Directors: Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady 


'' Warlocks are the enemies of God! And I don't care what kind of hero they are, they're an enemy of God and had it been in the Old Testament, Harry Potter would have been put to death!''

I'm an Atheist and always will be, Ive always seen religion as a cult for ignorant people who devote their lives,thoughts and freedom to an imaginary man in the sky, and after watching the Documentary 'Jesus Camp' I am very glad I do not buy into a false entity.

This film is a very confronting look at the Christian influenced youth of today, How their lives are being taken away so early after they have begun due to them devoting every single thought and action to their religion and how vindictive and ignorant adults, Parents and priests encourage them to do so. Becky Fisher, A pastor in this film, portrays so much of what is wrong with today's society, A power hungry person hell bent on brainwashing misinformed children.

Their are scenes in this film that are truly shocking, Weather that be children praying in tongue, being ridiculed for having individual thoughts or even protesting abortion, This is truly scary content.

Still technically being a 'child' at 17 years of age it truly horrifies me to see kids whom at the most are only 10 years younger than being so controlled very much saddens me. Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady, the Directors of this film, have to be congratulated for capturing such a powerful and horrific part of cinema that should open the worlds eyes, but due to ever lasting ignorance that will never happen.
I quote Daniel Plainview and Eli Sunday from 'There Will Be Blood' when summing up the adult figures in this film: ''I am a false prophet and god is a superstition''
