You see Jesus Camp sincerely expecting another bellyful of laughs at the expense of yet more nutters for 'Jesus'. Big mistake. It's not funny at all, it's just deeply fucking depressing.

Oh yes, it went beyond the 'let's laugh at the christians'. It was very depressing. The pro-life guy was insane and seemed like a creepy ex-junkie (which would be no suprise for the born agains).

Ted Haggard was the least 'human' being I have ever seen. An utter fucking monster.

On a positive not, I gather that the camp has closed due to vandelism :).

It was just so utterly alien, I could not relate to it on any level. The US right have created this strange political, pseudo religeous monstrosity that seems to hold massive sway.

I dont live in the US, I live in the UK but I am moving to the West coast of Canada next summer and being within a few miles of the US border is begining to not seem as appealing as it once did!.

Good luck in your move to Canada, Richard.

Yes, there wasn't even one so-called human being you could remotely identify with in the movie, unlike, say Borat, where at least you know Sacha is lurking under that grey suit and moustache.

I found this to be quite an interesting and humorous discussion on the film. The Christian woman is rather intolerable at times.

I want to see this but there won't be any screenings where I live.

I saw the trailer though and I laughed at the little boy with the mullet....

Yes, this movie truly puts the viewer in a misanthropic mood. It gave me similar feelings I had after seeing Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple. Makes me wonder if we are all like that somehow, clinging to our own self delusional faiths; not just the religious kind. We all have our little reasons for living in the manner that we do.
