2006-10-05 Christian Fundamentalism

TelePolis writes about Christian fanatics [1], based on the movie Jesus Camp.

Take a look at the pictures and videos.




The 2nd video has a short interview sequence that basically says it all: The goal is to produce stupid fanatics just like they do. Which brings me back to my favorite Christa Wolf quote: “What’s the use in fighting a war if you have to take on the traits of your enemies in order to win?”

I mentioned that before, of course. 2004-10-03 USA, 2004-05-14 Israel, 2005-12-08 England Torture, 2004-07-02 Iraq.

Oh and unfortunately, this phenomenon is not only limited to the nation with “the most powerful military in the world” but Europe has its share as well: Jesus Revolution, for example.
