When I watched that film, it was the first and last time in my adult life that I ever wanted to slap a child. And there was nothing in that film that showed those people as generous. In fact it was quite the opposite. They were teaching those children how to be a true conservative christian, in other words, a self-serving asshole.

"What an unfair and biased hack job this article is."
Evven if 'twere so, there's no doubt about the subject of said article. Specifically the film by Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing. As in a documentary film.
If 'the truth hurts', then the facts destroy. And as a result of this factual documentary, Becky Fischer was utterly annihilated.
...as was Ted Faggard who also appeared in "Jesus Camp", but that's coincidental (and pre-expose too).
"Check out the producers of this film. You Brits have thrown away Christianity"
Good. Because if what you call 'Christianity' is what we have 'thrown away, then good.
The infinite evil you call right-wing Fundamentalist Christianity has no right to exist in my clean, sacred secular UK.

> Your churches are deserted, almost deserted, or being turned into Mosques.
Many are indeed almost deserted, though some are doing just fine. Personally I think it's a great shame when beautiful and historic buildings are lost, whatever their original purpose, but I'm not aware of any being turned into mosques. Homes, offices and pizza restaurants, but not mosques. However I'd sooner see a traditional Christian church become a Moslem masjid than see the building torn down or left to rot.

What's so hard to spell in "atheist'?
Maybe teaching children to unquestionably believe arbitrary bullshit seems wrong to somebody.

In China, spreading superstition is actually a criminal offence. If I could trust a government not to abuse such a law (I can't) I would be glad to adopt the practice.

That's the thing about fundamentalism: you don't need to make it look bad because it shoves its foot in its mouth and smears its own shit on its face. And is proud of both.

"Your churches are deserted, almost deserted..."
And the score is: UK 1 - USA 0.

If you watched "Jesus Camp" and can't understand the critisizm then you have to be a full on right-wing fundamentalist. It's even been reported that some parents who sent their children there were apalled by the programs revealed by that documentary. I mean, praying directly to a cardboard image of George W Bush, Christ on a cracker!
If you'll look (I have) American Christian generosity is only large in opinion polls: Americans THINK they're the most charitable and American Christian THINK they're the most charitable of all. It's that "American Exceptionalism" Right-wingers think is something that should be proclaimed regularly despite real statistics and history that show otherwise.
As for all you fundies (If you saw Jesus camp and support that behavior you have to be a fire and brimstone sect) stop sending Bibles to disastor areas and thinking that helps!
