I watched Jesus Camp last night with my daughter (it was her desire to see it). It is an interesting movie, clear evidence for me that there is something of CV in Evangelical Christianity. Anyway, I highly recommend the movie. Those little kids with tears in their eyes, speaking in tongues are awfully cute and not unlike bhaktas tasting the rasa of kirtan.
Yes, they will certainly say and believe that. I am sure that the CVs have good ways of putting down Evangelicals, too. Still, when you see the two in action, side by side, it is hard not to recognize their similarities.

Do CVs in India send their kids off to camps to be indoctrinated?
I was sent off to a bible camp in Wisconsin at the age of 13, and although it was a fun camp with horseback riding, boating and archery, the bible study groups every morning were absurd. Those were not exactly the highlight of my two weeks stay there. At least (to their credit) they were not telling us kids to be involved in politics.
I have not seen the movie yet, but it sounds alarming. We have enough of these nut jobs running around already in this country. We certainly don't need them to be expanding their base.

I remember reading a quote from ACBSP saying that in Kali-Yuga demons would exploit children...
As the market is already saturated with religious material for adult, it sounds economically suggestive to cash out from those emerging markets, which have been consistently building up by the malicious persistence of religious leaders and administrators.
Honestly; (of course with all respect) but it is scaring.
Dawkins has a field day with religious groups and what they do to children, which is clearly as much a situation of child abuse as physical abuse. In fact, the indoctrination of children with dogma is perhaps even worse than the activities of predatory pedophiles among the clergy (and among those so-called 'sannyasis').
