I was watching a documentary earlier this evening, its called Jesus Camp and is about how the evangelic christian movement is indoctrinating the children of its members. This is one amazing movie.
It shows how the kids are at a bible camp and how they are exposed to ultra religious believes without anyone to doubt for them. They seem to have been raised to not doubt what the pastors or preachers are telling them (but doubt what all the others are telling them) and so they believe it fully when they hear sentences like "you are the chosen generation", "I believe that you are the generation that will bring forth the second coming of Jesus" and others in the same category. This does scare me since the kids become susceptible to messages like "you are gods warrior", "go fight the good fight" etc etc, how are they supposed to interpret that message? Is there any difference from these teachings and what the people of Taliban teach their children?
I admit that there was nothing in this movie that told straight out to the children, go and kill the enemy, and the only enemy that was mentioned there were liberals that were pro abortion (this documentary was taken as supreme justice Samuel Alito was nominated and later appointed for the supreme court) but that doesn't really matter. The ground work has been done, these kids are susceptible to all kinds of ideas their teachers like to teach them. They are open to anything, they don't question what they hear from their teachers.
Personally I don't mind grown up people wasting their time in stuff like that, but when it comes to kids, there I say stop. Kids should only get their education from moderates, be they religious or not.
