Good grief!

A trailer for Jesus Camp, which won the Jury Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Documentary at the 2006 Tribeca Film Film Festival. It was also a nominee for the "Best Documentary Feature" at the 79th Annual Academy Awards.

Morally, evangelicals operate at the same level as used car salesmen; intellectually, they vacillate just below pond scum. Herd mentality, peer pressure, mass hysteria, fear-mongering, hate-mongering, rapture (Do read up, gentle reader, how many times anticipation of — and the accompanying hysteria over — this pseudo-divine event has occurred throughout history), and schismatic agendas, substitute for faith in these misled sheep. These are the fools of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor. These unwitting witless heretics close their eyes and dream of heaven, but they will burn all the same.

A blurb from Yawning Bread.

Jesus Camp currently screens at Cinema Europa, GV Vivocity, Singapore.

Bring your barf bag.

The directors of the film even dedicated a special page to the fallen, ex-pastor Ted Haggard.
