I just got back from seeing the Jesus Camp movie with a friend. Our conversation en route to the parking lot:
We've raised our children to be peacemakers.
We've raised them to appreciate other peoples.
We've raised them to think for themselves.
Those children are so beautiful. What will happen when they realize how badly they've been betrayed?
And by adults who clearly love and care for them.
What's with the worship of the George Bush figure thing?
How did we get to the point where Democrats have become pagans?
How could you turn your children over to adults like that before they have reached the age of reason in any way, shape or form?
Do you remember being that age? How emotional you were? How easily you could be swayed?
How much you wanted to please the adults in your lives?
That young man, saying that when he meets people who aren't Christian, he feels "icky"....
They want to bring on Armageddon.
We got into the car, shivering from the cold, and looked at each other.
Let's go home and lock our doors and try to feel safe again.
