Wow. Someone mentioned this

Wow. Someone mentioned this movie in another thread, but this is the first time I've seen the trailer for it.

I'm shocked. Very, very frightening.

It was OK, but the sound was bad (actually footage from the original sound was very low, everything else very loud.) And the spelling wasn't too good.

As much as normally, I hate

As much as normally, I hate things like reductio ad Hitlerum. in this case, I think we can let this use of Godwin's Law slide.

And yes, I am aware that this particular usage is not strictly canon.. but reductio ad Hitlerum is a word you just don't get to use often enough in everyday convesation. And well.. the visual of Adolph shrinking and screaming as a giant spider gets ready to do a D-Day Buffet..

"Imperious, choleric, irascible, extreme in everything, with a dissolute imagination the like of which has never been seen, atheistic to the point of fanaticism, there you have me in a nutshell.... Kill me again or take me as I am, for I shall not change.

"This is war, are you apart of it or not"- that crazy lady at the end of the preview.

Are we really going after the kids... may be we should.

Absolutely

Absolutely terrifying.
Grooming those kids for a holy war just like the islamists are doing.
I spent years in the Assembly of God church, and "wearing the armor of god" really disturbed me. Christianity was supposed to be a religion of love, yet there we were preparing for spiritual war!!!
WTF?!
If they're not stopped....I don't even want to think it.
Would we (atheists) be caught in the cross fire, or targeted?
Everyone says "if it gets too bad I'm running for Canada" but that solves NOTHING. It only delays the inevitable.
I am scared. I don't want to be involved in a holy war. I don't want my kids involved, or my grandkids when they start coming into this world in a few years.
These so called christians are destroying our country.
Dark Ages. I didn't think we would sink so quickly.

What the hell are we supposed to do about this?! All I can think of is calling childrens services on these people (probably futile). Calling or writing to the directors of this camp will do nothing...they won't listen to us "fools". They think they are on a mission from god!
What do we do? Keep our heads down???

We must favor verifiable evidence over private feeling. Otherwise we leave ourselves vulnerable to those who would obscure the truth.

I saw that lady who's the head of the camp on some of the news talk shows. She's absolutely disconnected from the rest of society. Kept saying she didn't know what all the fuss was about, that they were just trying to have their religion...

tsk-tsk

Uh, lady, I don't think it's normal to tell very small children that they are in a holy war.

Frightening how the fundamentalists just don't want to live in today's world. They are creating a mental fantasy all their own.

That is what seriously ill schizophrenics do.

Except the crazies down at the bus station aren't running the government.

By the way, this movie isn't showing anywhere near where I live-- any idea when it's going to be out on DVD?
