I really enjoyed Jesus Camp. Most "documentaries" made these days are the Michael Moore type that just have the person make it lay out their case in a exaggerated fashion. Jesus Camp was great because they got permission to film the camp and let the footage speak for itself. And yes what you see in that film is very common here in the U.S.

Yep. Here we have the Southern Baptist who are most notorious for being die hard ultra conservatives. However, we have even more members of Churches of Christ (not to be confused with Church of Christ Scientists) who I would say are slightly worse even.

I was raised in Texas and am very familiar with the Southern Baptist mentality, such as it may be. They're all praying for a return to social values circa 1840 when cotton and white men were king.

Isn't the Church of Christ Mormon? Or am I thinking of something else?

Nope not Mormon. Some of their more famous tenants is that they frown on non-married people of the opposite sex even slow dancing. They also don't have any musical instruments in their services. It's all singing and very glum. -

Do they have to screw each other through a sheet with a hole cut in it?

Not if they are married. If not married then not at all. That sort of reminds me of the movie Kandahar in which a doctor in Afghanistan has to examine female patients that way.

That's the Church of Latter Day Saints. The Latter Day Saints were the white "native Americans," who were actually Jews who matriculated to North America, that followed Jesus when he appeared to them after his crucifixion. Or "crucifiction" as I like to say.

And, about the View, I was watching one day a couple years ago before Rosie got booted. She had been spouting on about 9-11 truth, so I thought I'd see what was going to happen next. Anywho, Joy brought up that she had found some interesting tidbits about happiness written by Epicures (). Elisabeth actually agreed with all of Epicures' requirements for happiness except that he left out going to church. She then argued that Epicures (341BCE-~270BCE) should have been going to church. They tried to explain that he lived before Jesus was even born, but that was no excuse to miss church, continued Elisabeth. It was great television. Makes me want to hurt people.
