I have only seen about half an hour of the movie and I found it truly disgusting. All of you who said that it was brainwashing were right. It's just
some insane adults trying to scare those children into being christian-extremenists.
I am what you guys would call a "non-believer". I don't agree with any organised religions, I believe the bible to just be a story, not a history
book, I am open to the idea that a man named Jesus Christ once exsisted and may have done some great things, but whether that man was the son of
"God" is another matter.
To me, religions are some of the most dangerous things in the world. How many attrocities have been committed all over the world throughout history in
the name of religion?
I went to a christian school from year 1 to year 4 and got taught a lot of stuff from the bible as if it were fact, but then I would come home to
parents who were not religious at all, and while they have *always* been adament that me and my siblings can believe anything we like and that we have
to make our own choices with what we believe and they would respect any path we chose, it's very hard not to follow your parents' beliefs. The
reason my non-christian parents chose a christian school to send their children to was because it was a very good private school and had top-notch
facilities and teachers.
I get sad when I hear about parents forcing their children to go to church, or read the bible, or pray, or do anything like that. Though, strangely
enough, when I was younger and I would say something like "Jesus Christ!" or "God Damn It!" my mother would still tell me off and say it's wrong
to "take the lords name in vein". Go figure eh?
But yes, back to the movie :/ It scared the crap out of me. But what I would love to do is have the lady in it over to my house (you know, that big
fat one yelling at all the kids?), while I drink my bourban, have my Marilyn Manson DVD going out hard (or my blink 182 ones for that matter), swear
like a sailor and play my violent video games. Pushing her buttons would be one of the most satisfying things I can think of. (and I lol at how
disgusting that sounds.)
