"I want to see them as radically laying down their lives for the gospel as they are in Palestine, Pakistan and all those different places," Fisher said. "Because, excuse me, we have the truth."
"A lot of people die for God," one camper said, "and they're not afraid." "We're kinda being trained to be warriors," said another, "only in a funner way."
"It's an absolute, straight-up us-against-them," Sandler said. "It's, you're either with us or you're against us. … Not only are you a sinner, but you are working for the enemy — the enemy being Satan."
Some cheeky sod edited the Jesus Camp video to express his/her satirical opinion concerning the indocrination of these young people into "warriors for jesus."
None of this sounds terribly different to the indoctrination of some young muslims who are trained to be warriors for allah and to die for allah because they ALSO have an intractable faith that THEY claim is "the truth".
Some young muslims also see other religions, but especially christianity, as the great satan, in exactly the same way that these christian children in the Jesus Camp video are being indoctrinated to view islam as the great satan.
On both sides it is about indoctrinating children to: ~
- obey the leader without question;
- worship the leader because the leader is god's/allah's representative;
- become "god/allah warriors" for their nations;
- and to die for their intractable religious beliefs.
When muslims become the "new jews" and must be eliminated, and christians become the "new jews" and must be eliminated; what hope is there for a sane, rational world?
