They all have felt that they were all disappointed or felt betrayed by families, traditional religion,government or in short by Society. They have come from homes when they were children that were broken, or they were abused and neglected, parents were drug users or alcoholics or they were given either nothing or everything to the point that they grew up feeling empty inside when it came to their spiritual needs. Nothing teaches bigotry better than ignorance! Some, if not all, of these groups are or have extremists amongst them.
They are now sending their children off to camps to be brain washed by Charismatic Personalities that know even less than they do. Jesus camps are brainwashing their children in the same manner that the Grand Supreme masters brain wash the children of the K.K.K. and being told to take back our Country for Christ.
All no different that Hitler or Stalin were able to brainwash their followers. Do you really think there will be no blood shed? How naive is it that everything will be peaceful and nothing militant? In order for ALL of them to work the victims need to be ignorant of the truth as well as history and the earlier the better when it comes to the ability to brainwash. Home schools are perfect towards teaching their idea of history and lies. The more they hear the lies repeated the more they become convinced of it’s truth. The Rush Limbaugh types on the Christian Broadcasting Networks or most of the radio stations owned by the same, also are an excellent aide. The object of their derision at the moment is President Barack OBama as well as all liberals, in an effort to defeat healthcare.
Apparently you know nothing about the Christian Crusades or religion taking control of government in the Middle East that set out to kill the Muslims or Jews in much the same manner as your children are being taught hate and lies in a slow but sure process, here. When the men in power get what they want they will be cast off.
These people that you are ,intrusting your children to, many times know even less about theology than you do. Rebellion is a normal healthy step of adolescents and teen agers. If our children are not allowed to take these steps to express themselves they will allow someone to brainwash them and mistreat them their entire lives. How can you knowingly, Mom and Dad, subscribe to this for your own flesh and blood?
Yes, our generation was diasappointed by the establishment as well as Society but thank God some of us were able to take what the traditional churches taught us and apply it to our lives. I will always be grateful to the Catholic Church for what I did learn about Christ even though their behavior, was not always what they taught. At least I was allowed to think well enough for myself that I was able to walk when I noticed, “they were not practicing what they preached.” Can’t you trust yourselves to take care of your responsibilities to say “NO” and teach your own children values that are not based on their lies? How Christ like are lies and bigotries?
I can’t imagine that you would rather have someone that has not even put in, many times, more than 12 hours into theology, if that, just because they have the appearance of looking like what you approve of along with the Charismatic personality, where they agree with you. You mistakenly think that when your children come home with all of their own personality washed out of them and thinking like you do that they are being helped. Teaching bias and hate is WRONG! Women, minorities and gays no more than Jews are not destroying our freedoms–The Jesus Camps are destroying our freedom, and you are providing your own children to advance their causes!
So the Conservatives meet with the average age being 30 just as concern about economy and jobs as the rest of us and social issues are down the list and the press goes, “Oh maybe their o.k., after all.” Never mind that they have the Queen against education, Sarah Palin, as speaker and the king of lies, Glen Beck as speaker. They are expressing the concern of the rest of us so social issues must not be such a big deal with the younger people. As though they would put them first, as doing so, only weakened rather than strengthened the right wing the generation before. By keeping the focus on the young people they can buy every election that serves their purpose.
By trying again with the young people that have not yet established their names as zealots they can lay back until they have the control they need in the elections, to change the Constitution that takes civil rights away from women and minorities. Thereby allowing the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer. Also Turning the Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck types loose blaming the Democrats and liberals of socialism and communism when it really falls more into place of being their goals.
Are you so busy Mom and Dad that you no longer know the truth, yourselves, or are you BRAINWASHED? Can’t you teach your own children right from wrong? Are you so weak as to not be able to tell them “NO”. Can’t you teach them responsibility for their own wants and and behavior in order for them to be independent and capable of thinking for themselves? It is a MUST if Democracy as we have known it, is to survive!
