I wrote about this and then the blog thing published and didn’t get any of it.

I don’t have it in me to write it all again.  Bottom line: Evangelical Christians represented in this film are self-righteous and hypocritical, and this film is a good reminder that this is still a big sector in the United States and that these people vote and love Jesus and George Bush.  They teach these kids some crazy, fucked up stuff.

The movie itself is decent, but not excellent.  It features some commentary on the Evangelicals that is critical, which I agree with, but would rather come to my own conclusions on.  There are some crazy things here, but ultimately, this film really isn’t a documentary of elevated experience.  It’s scary.  God help me, it’s scary.
