Sadly, the underlying attitude in that story is what fueled the crusades, and still drives the American religious right today. Yes, I think it would be nice if the whole world believed... but forcing them to sort of nullifies the whole thing, doesn't it?
I realize that internet friends are not always quite the same as in-person friends. So let me just say that some of my best friends are bla . . I mean Christian. But let me share this one other thing with you. I was reading a book called "Christ Plays in 10,000 Places" and this author was relating a childhood tale wherein he got his ass whooped for being a "Jesus Pansy." Well one day he snaps and attacks the kid telling him to "say uncle!" The bully refuses and then the author's Christianity kicks in. He tells the bully, "Say 'I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior!" The author claims he said it. I found that such a laughable and disgusting lie I had to put the book down.
I think I'd get some reverse Grinch action going if someone tried to force me to say anything even remotely close to that. The strength of ten men! "NEEEEVAAAAHHH!"
Good documentary. Well, good in the sense of well-made. Not an enjoyable watch. As a Christian it left me freaked out and embarrassed by certain fellow believers, and I just hope that people who watch it don't think we're all like that.
But for the record, the proper genitive (groan) form is Jesu. By eliminating the s's, we've eliminated the problem!
Just watched the documentary "Jesus Camp." It really bothers me when people say "In Jesus name." Now, I don't care where you put the apostrophe; it can be "Jesus'" or "Jesus's" for all I care, but the possessive must be sounded out!
