Wow, what is your definition of conservative and what do you need to do to consider praying to someone instead of for someone?
They are sitting there praying to a cardboard cutout. They are not praying for the cutout. Read your bible again, there is a rule about that in there somewhere.
You would have no problem if it was for all leaders but since it is not, you will defend it anyway? Watch the movie again.
Kids speaking in tounges and praying to a cardboard cutout of the president. I think your understanding of religion is off if you think this is either conservative, not praying to a picture of a man, and just dandy!
No, you do not know what I was made to sing to or about or for Reagan, does it matter the content?
I was a kid and was taught to respect, revere, look up to, and wish god's blessing upon the president no matter what party, race, or religion they were.
Reagan, Bush, and Bush all spoke to school kids and that was ok. Obama wants to and entire counties lose their minds with fear of what the president will teach their children. Many of those people are the same type that would send their kids to this camp. Obviously they believe that just hearing the president can warp a child's mind for life so what do you think getting them to pray to cardboard cutouts will do?

They were sitting there praying for the person. Yes they were touching it, and “speaking in the spirit”, but they used the cutout to represent the person. You have to look at the context, and anyone who watched the vid would know this.

They were praying TO the cardboard cutout. They spoke in tongues TO the cutout. Yes they used the cutout to represent the person, the person to bow your head and speak tongues to.
Maybe it is religion you all do not understand.
Obviously it was an extremely Christian camp. Obviously people do not feel the need to read the threads they reply on. I have said before that first of all, I never mentioned Obama or that other incident so no need to accuse me of comparing.
I was merely trying to point out he simple minded children are and how easily influenced. They will repeat and chant and sing and make up anything adults encourage them to. Nothing in that movie takes away from that point.
I really do not see the difference between these children and those children. They will all grow up and think for themselves someday and neither Bush nor Obama will be relevant anymore anyway.
