I recently posted a diary titled Teenage Mutant Theocrats about the ideological indoctrination and political training of some homeschooled children. (I was pleased and surprised when it was was much discussed and made the rec list.) In it, I mentioned the 2006 documentary film Jesus Camp, which included dramatic footage of Religious Right (and New Apostolic Reformation) leader Lou Engle.
"...the more extreme elements of the homeschooling movement have had many years to develop, and have done so largely unnoticed, with a few exceptions. The 2006 documentary Jesus Camp revealed neo-pentecostal summer camp director Becky Fischer proudly teaching children that their lives would be defined by their service in God's Army, and that that was not merely metaphorical. The film also showed Religious Right leader Lou Engle personally coaching the children (on a field trip from North Dakota) in antiabortion protest at the U.S. Supreme Court."
It turns out that boofdah had posted (in an excellent diary I later discovered), a clip of the sections of the film that feature portions of Engle's extraordinary anti-abortion indoctrination sessions (as well as a pre-scandal cameo from Ted Haggard, who is also featured in the film).
Engle is not identified in the film, and its possible that the film-makers may not have understood his national significance. But make no mistake, its him. The woman speaking at the end of the clip is Becky Fischer, the director of the camp.
These clips are a rare opportunity to gain insight into problems posed by the more extreme elements of Religious Right-affiliated homeschooling. I recommend seeing the entire film, but it is helpful to understand in advance, that Lou Engle is an historic figure in the antiabortion movement and the wider Religious Right, with close ties to top pols, such as Gov. Sam Brownback (R-KS).
