Jesus Camp (2006)

This film focuses on right wing, conservative evangelicalism and its army of youth. A children pastor leads children to Christ and disciples them in a militaristic way into fervent little Republicans. The images are as moving as they are scary of children weeping as they are pressured into making decisions. A voice of reason is found in a radio talk show host.

The film makes an effort to connect this with the appointment of a Conservative judge to the Supreme Court. This connection is weak, but the film is strong otherwise.
