Speechless

You and me both.

The up side (if you can call it that) is that many youth end up disowning that which their parents hold dear and (rebell to) find a different path.

Let's hope this happens.

Peace, Virginia

I saw about this on the news. I saw the pentecostal movement close up back in the seventies, very extreme and cultish, literal in their interpretation of the Bible, determined to indoctrinate the world. I've seen the indoctrination of children, too. And I've seen many of the children rebel, eventually. I think it's a bad sign, and I hope it runs its course. These things are cyclical, and it's been 30 years, so I guess it's time again. But, yes, it's very disturbing.

Holy sh$^%&! That is quite frightening and disturbing. Then again, my 17-year old niece, born to a Jewish father and Catholic mother, attends one of these churches. She is there of her own freewill. And she went to a camp that they run a couple of summers ago.

Be scared...be very very scared.

Oh...my...god...

I was just thinking today that the Christian Right takes the stance of calling to inflict "democracy" upon xenophobic, repressive, fundamentalist theocracies while at the same time desiring to turn this country into that very thing...

I read the review in IMDB. Zealots for any cause are frightening to me.

I'm not speechless but I cannot say what I think. I had several foster children that had to suffer the good graces of fundamentalists.
